Original artwork by professional artists will be available for viewing and for sale at the annual Palette Puddlers Memorial Day weekend art show.

The show and sale will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, May 24, through Monday, May 27, in the Cannon Beach Chamber of Commerce Community Hall, 207 N. Spruce St. Admission and refreshments are free.

In addition to displaying their work, the artists will provide ongoing demonstrations through the weekend.

The Palette Puddlers is composed of professional women artists who paint together every Monday, rain or shine. During their weekly painting meetings, they provide mutual support, critique artistic efforts and share the joy of creativity, as well as just have a great time.

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 community hall to display and sell their original art.

Those participating in the show are: Louise Birkenfeld, Susan Bish, Betty Brower, Sheila Brown, Patricia Button, Judith Fredrikson, Jo Pomeroy-Crockett, Mary Ann Gantenbein, Ireta Sitts Graube, Debbie Janssen, Susan Thomas and Ellen Zimet.

Their media include watercolor, lino-block prints, acrylics, mixed media, oils, pastels and fine jewelry. Cards and some print reproductions also will be available as well as a “bargain bin.”

Many of the artists show their work in other venues in the Northwest. Last year, the group designed a calendar showing one picture per month of art from each member. Almost all sold; the few that are left will be on sale for $7 each.

The 2014 calendar will be available for the Labor Day show.
