Library hosts Seattle Opera performance

Opera comes to the Jefferson County Library Dec. 7 with a Seattle Opera preview performance of Giuseppe Verdi's “La traviata,” a passionate portrait of a worldly courtesan forced by bourgeois society to give up the man of her dreams.

The hour-long presentation, which starts at 6:30 p.m., takes the audience on a journey through the story and music of the upcoming main stage opera, according to a press release.

Director Peter Konwitschny's "five-star" (Sunday Telegraph) production emphasizes the elegant music and emotional story with clean, simple visuals and striking sophistication, the press release states.

The full Seattle Opera performance of “La traviata” runs Jan. 14-28 in Seattle.

The library is located at 620 Cedar Ave. in Port Hadlock.

PT painter talks color at Northwind

Port Townsend painter Sandra Offutt presents an artist’s demonstration, “Why the Sky’s Not Blue and the Trees May Not Be Green,” from 1 to 2:30 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 10 at Northwind Arts Center, 701 Water St.

"For the past year and a half, I’ve been on a journey to find out more about color, especially in relationship to painting,” stated Offutt, who is Northwind's Showcase Artist of the Month. “I now know that this is a lifelong quest, and that I’m just in the initial phases of the trip.”

Offutt is to demonstrate and talk about how she uses color in order to best portray the effects of light on a scene.

Her show runs through Dec. 30 at Northwind.
