It’s 30 years for Cannon Beach Arts Association

Cara Mico stands outside the Cannon Beach Arts Association.

The Cannon Beach Arts Association is gearing up for an amazing summer.

Our current exhibit features over 50 works of art by regional artists from the Portland Art Museum’s Rental Sales Gallery.

The exhibit will be on display until Aug. 4 and includes masterworks from artists such as Sidonie Caron, Kenneth Ray Wilson and Jess Reno, amongst others.

Our summer art camp wraps up July 12. Join us for a popup exhibit of the work created during the camp at the Cannon Beach Gallery on July 13 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.

The biennial 12X12 fundraiser starts Aug. 7. A reception will be held Aug. 10 at 6 p.m. at the gallery. Join us for a celebration of coastal art with over 80 local and regional artists creating works for the exhibit.

All works will be sold for $150, with proceeds split between the gallery and the artist, to support our arts education program.

Fall exhibits will feature local group shows with Nicole Poole, Rachel Laura, Angelle Soans, and Jeffery Olson from Sept. 11 to Oct. 13; and Elizabeth Pattison, Jessica Sund, Orchida Violeta, and Yoshi Aoki from Oct. 16 to Nov. 10. The works include painting, sculpture, stone, metal and fabric craft.

The final exhibit of the year is open to all artists. The annual miniature exhibit will have a theme of “Proximity” and be open to all art forms with dimensions of 6 inches by 6 inches or smaller (36 square inches). Three-dimensional work is also encouraged.

To submit work, bring up to three pieces that fit the theme of the show and meet the size restrictions to the Cannon Beach Gallery on Nov. 10 between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.

An artists reception will be held Nov. 16 at 6 p.m. at the gallery.
