‘ArtPaths’ lets artists share with showing  The teenagers chosen for “ArtPaths: Portfolio 2012” appear fearless.  They might not feel entirely unafraid about revealing their hearts through their art. But they have gone ahead anyway, depicting love, loss, joy, disconnection and connection in the public art display to open Sunday. This is the annual student show at the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center, and it spotlights 25 youths chosen from Forks, Port Angeles and Sequim high schools. The teenagers’ passions are on display, too: in the strange guitar sculptures by Eddy Bartley of Forks High School and in the paintings by Patrick Carpenter of Sequim.  They depict a bizarre forest, inspired by the lions-and-tigers-and-bears scene in “The Wizard of Oz,” but also by Patrick’s own walks in the woods. “I really enjoy Surrealism,” he said, as in that genre made famous by the Spanish painter Salvador Dali.
