CANNON BEACH — The Cannon Beach Arts Association is hosting an artists’ reception for the 2019 Photography Invitational at 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 16, at the Cannon Beach Gallery.
The exhibit features local photographers Justin Bailie, Don Frank, Maya Dooley, George Vetter, Kristin Steinke, Lynne Allison, Kim Rose Adams, Cindi Plath, Carolyn Propst, Julie Adams and Bob Kroll. The invitational, sponsored by the Wine Shack & Martha Moulton, will be on display through Sunday, March 24.
The gallery is also hosting a FisherPoet reading from 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 24. The reading will include a pop-up art exhibit featuring Drea Frost and Tom Grogg. Frost is a former CBAA art grant recipient, and her art has been featured in multiple local galleries and, most recently, on the cover of “Just Movin’ the Water Around” by Peter Lindsey. The work will be on display in a temporary exhibit starting Friday, Feb. 22, and ending after the FisherPoet reading on Sunday.
Our first 2019 Artist in Residence was awarded to Seaside resident and long-time Arts Association volunteer Dorota Haber-Lehigh. The grant was provided by the City of Cannon Beach from the Community Grant Fund. Dorota will create art in the gallery between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Saturdays in February and March. Come see her work and ask questions. Her work will be featured in a group exhibit with other members of the Oregon Botanical Artists from Wednesday, March 27, to Sunday, May 5.
The Cannon Beach Gallery is at 1064 S. Hemlock St.
