Artists wanted, exhibits planned for Arts Association in 2018
CANNON BEACH — Exciting things are hap-
pening at the Cannon Beach Arts Associa-
tion in 2018.
We’re expanding our programming to
include more workshops, adding music to
Summer Art Camp, increasing grant oppor-
tunities for visual and performing artists, and
doubling our exhibit opportunities.
In 2018, gallery exhibitions will feature
North Coast artists and will highlight themes
such as landscapes, emotion and light. For a
full listing of the shows, visit our website or
sign up to receive invitations by mail.
We’re also piloting a new project to
increase artistic opportunities and represen-
tation in the gallery with three-day pop-up
shows that will focus on themes of identity,
heritage, environmental awareness and
culture. Each show will feature works from
select artists and will be shown on movable
panels in the gallery.
The goal of this program is to increase
awareness of locally relevant social issues
and increase access to community
‘3 Squared: Line, Light, Layers’
Cannon Beach Gallery
Come to the Gallery in January for a
three-person exhibit of works from Jani
Hoberg, Lisa Wiser and Jan Rimerman. The
show runs Wednesday, Jan. 3, to Sunday,
Feb. 18, with a reception 6 to 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, Jan 13.
The exhibit, titled “3 Squared: Line,
Light, Layers,” expresses the artistic soul
connection among the women, who grew
up together as children. After the artists di-
verged on individual artistic pathways, they
came back together as mature artists, relying
on each other for artistic field trips, truthful
opinions and undying support.
They will be teaching a mixed-media
workshop at the Cannon Beach History Cen-
ter & Museum. Visit our website at cannon- for times and cost.
Artists wanted for ‘Heritage:
The second exhibit of 2018 is a com-
munity show titled “Heritage: Stories.” It
is open to all artists with a connection to
Cannon Beach.
The show runs Wednesday, Feb. 21, to
Sunday, March 25, with a reception 6 to 7:30
p.m. Saturday, Feb. 24.
Our families and communities live
beyond our lifetimes through the stories we
tell our children — stories that paint rich
histories of lives unseen for generations.
This show asks you to express your under-
standing of heritage through stories, real or
imagined, yours or others.
