Friday Afternoon Club: Art, More Art and Babies

Note: Events start this afternoon, Friday.

Today, Friday, is the kick-off of first Friday Art Walk of the summer (OK ignore the rain) season in Port Orchard. The Historic Orchard Theatre is also showing “Babies” the movie this week.

Art walks, hosted by the Port Orchard Bay Street Association will take place on the third Friday of the month from 4 to 7 p.m. Visit Bay Street businesses, which will feature art walk specials, and see some fine examples of local artists’ work.

Some events within the event that were called to my attention:
Puget Sound Wine Cellar, 120 Harrison St, will feature works of Sam Weis and Jim Kinas on Friday.

Stop by the Manchester Art Gallery, 724 Bay St., on Friday for a display of encaustic paintings by Virginia Pace and drawings and paintings by Paul Nuchims, gallery owner.

On Saturday, visit the Manchester Art Gallery for music from noon to 2 p.m. by Marilyn Kay and Company, and painting and drawing demonstrations by Virginia Pace from 2 to 3 p.m. From 3 to 3:30 p.m. Paul Nuchims will demonstrate six methods of drawing and painting realistically.

And at the Historic Orchard Theatre: “Babies” the movie

The reason this caught my attention is that my 25-year-old son saw this film and raved about it. Then my co-worker, Steve Gardner, heard it was coming to Port Orchard and immediately wished he had the South Kitsap Beat. (Just kidding) But he did immediately call his wife, who didn’t answer. He said she would say, “Shut up!” as in, “This is awesome. You have to be kidding, but I know you’re not.” So he texted her, and she texted him back and said, “Shut up!”

Here’s the synopsis of the film, which runs Fri. May 21, 3:45 • 5:30 • 9:25; Sat. May 22, 3:45 • 7:30 • 9:25; Sun. May 23; 3:45 • 7:30; Mon. May 24 – Thurs. May 27 4:45 • 7:00.
“Capturing on film the earliest stages of the journey of humanity that are at once unique and universal to us all, this nonfiction feature from award-winning filmmaker Thomas Balmès simultaneously follows four babies, in Mongolia, Namibia, San Francisco, and Tokyo, respectively, from birth to first steps. Every shot tells a story, as the adventure of a lifetime begins.”

Happy weekend. Let the loafing begin. Chris Henry, South Kitsap reporter
