Mark this on your calendar: winter is on its way.

That’s a good thing, too, because with the annual change of season, Cannon Beach stages one of its best events of the year.

On the first weekend of November, Portland’s artsy coastal getaway plans a weekend full of art events, musical performances, artist demonstrations and gallery receptions, making the Stormy Weather Arts Festival one of Cannon Beach’s most popular annual events.

Book now and get the best hotel reservations, before all those visitors from Seattle and Puget Sound do it. They love Cannon Beach just about as much as people from Portland.

Three full days of art and musical events are planned for the 28th Cannon Beach Stormy Weather Arts Festival, Nov. 6-8, 2015. Popular festival events include Art in Action on Friday night and a spotlight concert featuring the Lloyd Jones Struggle on Saturday night.

Throughout the weekend, the town’s many galleries will present special events showcasing the artists they represent, with many of the artists on hand to present their latest works, conduct demonstrations or discuss their work.

At the Art in Action event on Friday evening, several professional artists will demonstrate their techniques and create works of art available for purchase during the evening banquet and silent auction. The silent auction during the evening will offer attendees the opportunity to bid on unique Cannon Beach experiences, travel packages and other items.

On Saturday, musical performances will be featured throughout town before the Saturday night spotlight concert in the intimate 200-seat Coaster Theatre that will showcase journeyman blues artist Lloyd Jones, who has forged a 30-year career, reaping numerous awards in the Northwest for his performances and recordings.

He was named to the Oregon Music Hall of Fame in 2007 and has appeared on stage with blues greats such as Robert Cray, Bonnie Raitt, B.B. King, Charlie Musselwhite, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Guy, Taj Mahal and Etta James.

Cannon Beach is home to more than a dozen art galleries and has been named one of “The 100 Best Art Towns in America” by author John Villani in his book by the same title. Many of the gallery’s most successful national and regional artists, as well as prominent local artists, will be showcased during the festival.

Throughout the weekend, the public will have the opportunity to attend gallery receptions and meet guest artists, some as they demonstrate their techniques. Guest artists in the galleries will include Heather Soderberg, who has sculpted since she was a toddler, earning national and worldwide recognition for her young talent through features by Paul Harvey, People Magazine, National Geographic World and “That’s Incredible”.

Also in attendance will be oil painter Byron Pickering. Pickering is known for his depictions of ocean surf and has been recognized in Southwest Art Magazine, in addition to having his art featured during the 1986 World’s Fair and at the 1976 “Americans in Paris Bicentennial Exhibition.”

Work by Cannon Beach’s best-known resident artists will also be showcased during the festival, including paintings by Jeffrey Hull and blown glass by Jim Kingwell and Suzanne Kindland, all of who have been featured on Oregon Public Broadcasting’s “Art Beat” television program.

Hull has been capturing the North Oregon Coast in watercolor and oil for more than 40 years, drawing his inspiration from the ocean and landscapes of the area. He and wife Carol have owned and operated his namesake gallery in Sandpiper Square since 1987.

Kingwell and Kindland, glass artists and owners of Icefire Glassworks in midtown Cannon Beach, have been blowing art glass since 1971. Hull, Kingwell and Kindland will all be available at their galleries throughout the weekend, to discuss their work with visitors. Additionally, Icefire will have glass blowing demonstrations throughout the weekend.

Tickets to the Lloyd Jones concert are priced at $35 each and tickets for Art in Action are $45. (Prices increase to $50 after Sept. 25 and $55 after Oct. 16.) Tickets can be purchased by contacting the Cannon Beach Chamber of Commerce.

“In Bloom – Siletz Bay”

This group of rocks, known as “The Sisters” is located in Siletz Bay on the Central Oregon Coast. They are a frequent subject of mine as a painter and I never drive Highway 101 without stopping to see what they have to offer on any given day. I painted this watercolor during the summer bloom cycle of Montbretia which are one of my favorite flowers to paint. Discovering vibrant wild blossoms and fog veiled sea stacks makes my job a little easier.

“Raven’s Haven”

Ravens are super smart and dear to my heart. When our paths cross I’ll greet them in hopes they’ll recognize I’m no threat and allow me time to take a couple of pictures. Usually they fly away immediately as I raise my camera, but with persistence I now have several images to paint from. In this watercolor the raven’s position was the final part of a tricky composition.

Jeffrey Hull began his painting career over 40 years ago as a resident of the beautiful coastal art community of Cannon Beach, Oregon. Though primarily self taught, he did study under three Northwest Watercolorists in the early 70’s. Known for his ability to capture the beauty and moods of the places where water joins land, Jeffrey controls the difficult medium of watercolor, often in very large paintings. After many years of painting watercolor exclusively Jeff recently returned to painting with oils as well. He is rarely found far from the ocean’s edge and his deep love for the area is clearly seen in his work.

In 1987 after many years of displaying his artwork locally, Jeff and his wife Carol opened their own gallery. His representational work is exclusively displayed in their spacious gallery located on the second level of Sandpiper Square in the heart of downtown Cannon Beach.
