A printmaking show featuring Stirling Gorsuch, Kirsten Horning and Sarah Baumert-Lippold will explore variations of this diverse medium including monotypes and relief printing combined
with chine colle. All three studied closely with Oregon artist Royal Nebeker whose influence has guided their vision.
Cannon Beach artist, Stirling Gorsuch, will be in a group show at the Blackfish Gallery in Portland in July, 2015 for their Recent Graduates show, which shows 2 students from each of the universities in Oregon. Each university chooses 2 graduates from their fine art department and Gorsuch was chosen for Oregon State University.

From Stirling’s Artist Statement
My current work explores process and change in the natural world. I combine imagery from the north Oregon coast with geometric forms to create a dialogue that allows for the complexities of nature to be understood in simple ways.
Through repetition and pattern, these geometric forms convey the passage of time, perception of distance, and changing environmental conditions. In combining geometric forms with landscape, these works offer ways to look in to unseen properties of nature.
Although I reference landscapes that I am familiar with, these locations are used more as structures to expand upon. Building on my experiences in these coastal areas, I then translate natural phenomena that cannot be seen, such as wind, tidal forces, earthʼs precession, growth and erosion.
Many of these processes are naturally recorded in the environment, such as the moonʼs influence on the tides, shadows of different times of the day, or rugged cliff edges shaped by wind and erosion that have occurred over time. My work records these associations in order to clarify how environments are continually shaped and reshaped throughout time.
While the properties of nature are considered complex and difficult to understand, the underlying structures that cause this complexity are very simple.

Terra Nova will open at the Cannon Beach Gallery on Saturday, June 6 with an opening Artist’s Reception that evening from 5-7 pm.  An all juried show, Northwest artists were encouraged to blur the lines of contemporary landscape for this exhibition, which will be curated by the Cannon Beach Gallery Committee.  Terra Nova will be on display until Sunday, June 28.  The Cannon Beach Gallery is open Wednesday – Monday from 10 am – 4 pm.

In addition, there will be a Nature Journaling Workshop on Sunday, June 7 at Circle Creek Habitat Reserve in Seaside led by artist Dorota Haber-Lehigh..  The workshop will be held from 10 am – 12:30 pm with a fee of $30.  There is limited space, so please contact the CBAA in advance to reserve your space by phone 503-436-0744 or email cannonbeacharts@gmail.com.

More information about the workshop follows:

Explore the beauty and mystery of the coastal landscape through nature journaling. Learn how to capture your observations and impressions in word and art.  Strengthen your connection with the natural world by careful observation and recording of things you see, feel, hear or taste; a great way to start or continue your nature journal. The workshop is ideal for artists, naturalists, hikers or birders.  All levels welcomed. Age: children under 12 should be accompanied by an adult.

Our workshop will take place at Circle Creek Habitat Reserve, land conserved by The North Coast Land Conservancy, a private land trust operating on the North Coast of Oregon from Lincoln City to Astoria.  Katie Voelke, Executive Director of NCLC, will provide an opening message about the land trust and the site we will be visiting today.

We will continue with a short discussion on why to use nature journaling and how to go about creating a nature journal. We will explore the habitat reserve and students will have time for hands on journaling.  Participants will receive a copy Dorota’s of coloring/reading book: Native Berries of the Coastal Pacific Northwest for future reference.

Instructor: Dorota is an educator, artist and a forager. She will share her knowledge of nature journaling and plants.

Materials: Bring a sketchbook of your choice, pencil 2 B or 4 B, writing utensil (I suggest Pigma Micron black pen 005 or 01), other media of choice (color pencils or watercolors)

Things to Know: Bring water and snacks, and anything to keep you comfortable outdoors on the coast: sun hat, sunglasses, comfortable shoes and rain jacket. There are no restrooms available at Circle Creek. There will be light walking on uneven terrain, if you are unable to walk or would prefer to sit while sketching – bring your own light camping chair.
