A natural place for art of all kinds

Stroll downtown to enjoy outdoor art Art on the Town is an ever-changing outdoor art project that graces downtown Port Angeles sidewalks. The art ranges from the realist to the abstract, conveyed in various media. Eleven steel sculptures along Laurel Street called “Avenue of the People” have

become a popular photography opportunity for visitors. Conrad Dyar Memorial Fountain at First and Laurel streets features cascading water and benches for resting and snapping a photo or two. The three-level Laurel Street stairs begin behind the fountain area and connect First and Second streets, and offer great views of the activity in Port Angeles Harbor and beyond.

The 1,300-square-foot visual arts exhibition at the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center, 1203 E. Lauridsen Blvd., is a wonderful place to visit. The center’s gallery, originally the private residence of Esther and Charles Webster, was designed in 1951 by Paul Hayden Kirk as both a residence and artist’s studio. The semicircular Webster house is a plate-glass-and-timbered classic of modern Northwest architecture that sits on the crest of Beaver Hill. Kirk’s use of voids and indigenous materials offers a low-impact structure that ushers indoors the abundance of the natural world. With sweeping vistas of the city, Port Angeles Harbor, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and British Columbia’s Vancouver Island, the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center presents an atmosphere conducive to observation and reflection. Visitors can explore Webster’s Woods Art Park independently by using the park trails to discover artworks hanging in trees, burrowing in the ground or camouflaged by the natural beauty of the foliage. The popular Shakespeare in the Woods series will feature “As You Like It” this year. Performances will take place in Webster’s Woods on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays July 20-Aug. 5. Pre-show starts at 6 p.m., production at 6:30 p.m. The center is open Thursdays to Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Webster’s Woods is open daily from dawn to dusk year-round. Admission is free, with donations accepted. Call 360-457-3532 or visit pafac.org for more information.
