The Cannon Beach Arts Association is expanding programming to include more workshops, adding music to summer art camp, increasing grant opportunities 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. The association is also piloting a new project to increase artistic opportunities and representation 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 spaces.

‘3 Squared: Line, Light, Layers’

Come to the Gallery in January for a three-person exhibit of works from Jani Hoberg, Lisa Wiser and Jan Rimerman. The show runs 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 diverged 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 Center and Museum. Visit for times and cost.

Artists wanted for ‘Heritage: Stories’

The second exhibit for the new year is a community show titled “Heritage: Stories,” 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.

This show asks artists to express their understanding of heritage through stories, real or imagined, theirs or others.

Artists may submit up to three works for consideration between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday, Feb. 19. Jury selection will take place Tuesday, Feb. 20. Artists may collect unselected work between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 21.
