There are many hidden treasures of interesting art work along the outdoor trails of this center. You have to walk slowly and look up and down to see it all.

The museum was closed but we were able to wander through the adjacent paths in the forest. The art is in the trees and you need to be alert to find it. Interesting.

An interesting art venue for local or regional artists. I have visited two times. The first time featured a ceramic artists with amazing works, it took quite some time to spend observing each detailed sculpture. There were also many other quality works being shown. This year there was a more local "Christmas" sale theme that had a wide variety or works. Some pretty terrific artisans in the area!

Difficult to find but interesting small park that leads to Artist House (which was closed when we visited). Lots of cool outdoor sculptures and and:or yard art like a beautiful rock stream. Small but nice.

The fine arts in the woods was an unexpected surprise. Like going on a treasure hunt. Delightful experience looking for sculptures. Some just blend into the scenery while others pop right out. Free and worth your time.

While we did not visit the indoor art exhibit, we did enjoy taking a walk on the pleasant path through the woods to see the outdoor artwork. Unique and eclectic, we were glad we took the time to find this exhibit, and we enjoyed the wooded setting. While it was smaller than we had anticipated, we still appreciated the artwork and were glad we visited.

And in a small gallery.
This is a lovely setting. There is an indoor gallery. The current show is Small Things. Many media’s are represented: porcelain, water color, ink, acrylic, laser wood carving and more. The atmosphere is pleasant and admission is by donation. Outside the gallery is a relaxing place to sit and enjoy a water feature.

Then there are the woods. Cool and rather mysterious as one walks the paths and searches up in the trees and in the trees for the installations. There were three new installations and they were the only ones marked on the map. We found 2 of them only! On one hand a list of the art would be great but on the other hand much of the joy of discovery would be removed.

The paths can be a bit steep for some and not for differently abled folks with walkers or nonmotorized chairs. There is handicap parking close to the entrance. For others parking is a brief walk to the entry of the building.

We spent a pleasant few hours here enjoying the gallery show, sitting outside the gallery and meandering the paths in the woods.

The picture is one of the newest installations.

Paint the Peninsula is an annual special event that brings artists from all over to create works in oil, water color or pastels for display, competition and sale. They create multiple pictures daily at designated local locations. People can visit these location and watch the artists at work and engage in conversation. Other special exhibits at the Center are interesting. The grounds of the Center have wandering trails with unexpected ecclectic sculptures woven into the landscape.

Each year we visit the Port Angeles fine Art Center and walk the trails at the Webster Woods Art Park. It's a fun experience and the exhibits change and evolve a little bit each visit. The center itself doesn't have too much to see, but it's worth a stop. Webster Woods is quite eclectic and interesting. Various artworks are scattered in the 5 acre environment with rambling narrow trails leading you from one to another. Some works are hidden so you have to hunt them out. Some are up in the trees, others on the ground. Sculptures are creative and often surprise a person when you come around a corner on the trail. This center is near the community college.

We've traveled widely to more than 45 countries, and love to visit art museums and galleries where ever we go. This sculpture garden, which is open all the time, is well worth a visit. What makes it unique was the fact that much of the art is meant to be in the space it is placed, or it is "ephemeral art", meaning it is meant to decay naturally with its surroundings. Look up! Look to the tree over there! Look down beneath your feet! the art is everywhere, and more than half the fun is finding where it is hidden. A great place for adults and children alike, since there are dozens and dozens of pieces of art, if you can find them all while walking the paths, which are many. Like an art scavenger hunt or geo-caching. So much fun, and some of the pieces are truly unique and lovely. The inside gallery had the annual event for plein air artists painting in Olympic National Park, so an added bonus for us. But we really loved the outdoor space. And it's free, no excuse to get a little culture. Thank you!
