The Palette Puddlers are a group of professional women artists, many of whom have painted together for many years. Every Monday, rain or shine, they paint in Cannon Beach. 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 at the Visitor’s Center to share and sell their original art works. Many of these artists show their paintings and artwork in other venues in the Northwest. Their works can be found in homes throughout the state, as well as nationally and internationally.
