Trails End Art Association

656 “A” Street – 503-717-9458 — trailsendart.org

Trail’s End Gallery will open an exciting new show during the Gearhart ArtWalk on May 4 featuring Mary Schlunegger, a talented painter in acrylic, fabric and 3-D art. Her show is entitled “Fashionable Art” and will include wearable pieces, as well as her lovely paintings and whimsical gourds. The show will be on display throughout the month. A reception in her honor will be from 2-5 p.m. Saturday. Other Trail’s End artists will be represented around the gallery and entryway area. The gallery is located at 656 A St.

Mary has had a lifelong passion for all forms of art. She says, “I have drawn and painted since childhood. Having spent most of my life growing up surfing the shores of California and Hawaii I have been able to find great inspiration from those memories. You can see in my work a very close connection with the ocean and wildlife. I primarily paint with acrylics but love to experiment with color and texture in mixed media and fiber art, mixing techniques with different materials using skills learned in college and numerous workshops. Having retired after decades of running a successful Interior Design business, I now have the time to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a full time artist drawing my inspiration from the Oregon Coast, the place I now call home.”

Trail’s End is lucky to have her as a member.

Trail’s End is the oldest gallery on the North Coast, having been built as a schoolhouse in the early 1900s and converted to art classrooms and a gallery mid-century.

Besides the gallery there is a gift shop full of prints, small objects and artwork, notecards and discounted paintings. The membership continues to grow and has artists joining from Washington and parts of the North Coast, including the Portland area.

Open studios for the public are available nearly every day. Four summer workshops in all media will be presented by artists known regionally, nationally and internationally throughout the summer.

On July 4, we have a tent sale and fun art events for everyone. Our annual judged show in August is open to the public.

For further information, contact the gallery during its winter hours from Wednesday through Sunday, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. The phone number is 503-717-9458. See more at trailsendart.org.
