Those who have contributed to the calendar include: Louise Birkenfeld, Susan Bish, Betty Brower, Sheila Brown, Patricia Button, Judith Fredrikson, Jo Pomeroy-Crockett, Jeannette Gran-Davis, Mary Ann Gantenbein, Ireta Sitts Graube, Debbie Janssen, Susan Thomas and Ellen Zimet. The artists also will display and sell original works of art in a variety of media.

The Palette Puddlers is a group of professional women artists who get together weekly in Cannon Beach. Many show their paintings and artwork in other Northwest venues. Three times a year, over Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends and at the Stormy Weather Arts Festival in November, they create an art gallery in the community hall to share and sell their art.
