The Cannon Beach Gallery is now seeking submissions for its 29th annual Miniatures Show in November. The theme “Raining Cats and Dogs” is in keeping with the Stormy Weather Arts Festival taking place in Cannon Beach the weekend of the show’s opening reception.
The theme can be interpreted freely, but work must be no more than 6-by-6 inches square. Each artist may submit up to four works. All work must be available for sale.
Work should be delivered to Cannon Beach Gallery, 1064 S. Hemlock St. between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Nov. 3. Artists should plan to pick up any unselected work the following day from noon to 4 p.m.
The show will be selected by the gallery’s new program director, Jane Brumfield. Brumfield has worked in the visual arts for almost 30 years: in England curating exhibition spaces for museum galleries in Sussex and Kent and as exhibition’s officer for the Crafts Council in London; and in the U.S. as a gallery owner in Boise, Idaho, before taking this position at the Cannon Beach Arts Association.
The exhibition will open with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Nov. 7, and there will be a Sunday morning light breakfast, with pastries and mimosas, Nov. 8, at which the Best in Show and People’s Choice Awards will be announced. The Best in Show Award is $100, and the People’s Choice Award is also $100.
