Jeweler of the Month – Pamela Raine

Pamela Raine enjoyed crafting jewelry based on the treasures she collected from her worldwide travels. However, since the pandemic Pamela’s inspiration has come from sources closer to home.

Pamela creates necklaces and earrings reminiscent of the pink hues of the flowers in her garden, the blues and greens of the tumbled glass she discovered at Port Townsend’s North Beach, and the colorful sunsets over the Port Ludlow Marina.

Artist of the Month – Ann Bernard

A life-long artist and working mom, Ann Bernard’s retirement has enabled her to pursue her artistic passion full time. Ann uses evocative color combinations to create impressionistic and abstract art with oils and acrylics. Ann’s goal is to first attract viewers to her artwork and then draw them in so they can explore her intricate and multi-layered backgrounds.

For Ann, abstract art is a deeply intuitive process that frees her to instinctively create compositions without preconceived ideas, empowering her artwork to take on a life of its own.

Heron by Georganne Muse

After a long hiatus, the Bay Club will once again host group art exhibits sponsored by the Port Ludlow Art League. The theme for this group art exhibit is Feathered Friends.

The art exhibit is available for viewing in person at the Bay Club during August and September. The Bay Club is located at 120 Spinnaker Place in Port Ludlow. For more information on art exhibits at the Bay Club, contact Alan Ahtow at
