News0 comments

CANNON BEACH , OREGON –This autumn has been an exciting and busy time at Haystack Gallery. October has seen many new pieces of artwork being sent to us from our artists plus we have added a new artist to our family. After you read the highlights below, click on the live links and they will take you to the pages on our web site that will have more information.

 

 

 

New Artist Michael Schlicting – Inspired by American landscape painter Winslow Homer, post-impressionist painter Paul Gauguin and still life painter Henri Matisse, Schlicting creates landscapes using a combination of abstract and realistic interpretations. He describes his style as creative realism.

Working in watercolor, acrylics and mixed media, Schlicting chooses a medium of a project based on how the subject speakes to him. “The act of discovering the physical process is an inward journey, a dialog with your conscious and subconscious.” More of Michael’s work.

Mike Smith – Two new original watercolors in his single horse theme:More work

Pino –
Last year Pino died at the age of 70, so many of his pieces are hard to find. We have been lucky in that we have acquired five works of his, two of which are sold out editions. Here is the link to our new acquisitions. More.

Tim “Frogman” Cotterill – Tim has released many new frogs cast in bronze this year, this is his newest piece that we have in the gallery. See more new frogs.

John Ebner – John has been busy this year and has given us many new original watercolors. He will be at the gallery for the Stormy Weather Arts Festival Nov. 4-6. John will be painting at the gallery on Friday, Nov 4 from 4-7pm. Stop in and say hi. John’s new originals.

Ken Grant: New Paintings

Ken Grant’s paintings capture unique moments in time whether it is the reality of changing light through a window, shadows cast from lone objects in otherwise empty rooms or surreal scenes contrived with wit and fantasy. Grant paints interiors of rooms, chairs, still life, and figurative works rendered in a highly refined style that resembles photo-realism.  His formulated scenes hint at surrealism with the use of light and shadow as essential strengthening elements in his work.

Ken Grant is an Oregon artist who has had numerous solo exhibitions during his long art career. With regular exhibitions at White Bird Gallery for over 20 years, Grant’s work has been highly collected in the region and has become nationally recognized and collected by visitors to the Pacific Northwest.

“Fun in the Sun” in August at Haystack Gallery

News0 comments

CANNON BEACH , OREGON – Haystack Gallery, celebrating its 34th Anniversary this year, has set aside the month long August Exhibition as the:

Fun in the Sun Exhibition.
August and the sun has finally arrived at the beach. Our artists for the month have captured all of that fun in the sun in some very special pieces. Featured Artists: John Ebner, Michael D. Sorensen and Huibert VanDrimmelen.

John Ebner – At age five, John Ebner was fascinated with painting, exploring the world of watercolors and watching them expand on the paper. This fascination carried him through high school and on to the Advertising Art School in Portland, Oregon, where he earned a degree in art.

Embarking on a different career path, Ebner didn’t pick up a brush until 1974, when his wife enrolled him in a watercolor class as a birthday present. Today Ebner has established himself as one of the most widely collected watercolorists in the Pacific Northwest.

Ebner’s popularity continues to increase with his sellout prints of the genre he calls his “rain people.” These rain people address the delicate balancing act between pigment and paper. With warm tones next to cool tones and soft lines next to hard lines, a sense of mystery is added.

Michael David Sorensen – Michael started watercolor painting at age 13 and has enjoyed it ever since. Michael claims that he started drawing as soon as he could hold a pencil in an effort to compete with his older brother, Dan, and his dad. His dad was a professional artist, blowing glass, so when it came time to homeschool Michael and Dan, their dad became the art teacher. Michael was homeschooled all of the way through school other than a short time in a private school.

Michael went on to Clark College in Washington where he took every art class he could fit into his schedule and met several instructors that pushed him in his artwork. Even after finishing college Sorensen still relies on his brother and dad for art instruction and an ever-ready honest critique of his artwork.

One of Michael’s favorite things to do is travel and explore all of the amazing things that God created. Many of his paintings are inspired by road trips with his brother, Dan and his friend Adam. The three of them are currently working toward their goal of seeing every National Park in the U.S. and Canada.

Huibert VanDrimmelen – Huibert was born in Ziest, The Netherlands in 1950. In the late 50’s his parents immigrated to Canada and settled in British Columbia. During Huibert’s childhood he was always attracted to the arts. He graduated from Langara College in 1972 with an arts major. Huibert continues developing and honing his skills as an artist.

After several successful art shows in 1989-1993, Huibert concentrated on commissions and other interests involving travel. This is a defining time in Huibert’s journey as an artist and is the beginning of his adventure into mixed media, and representation in over twenty countries around the world. After spending holidays in Cannon Beach his love for the sea is expressed in his most recent works

Rip Caswell of Troutdale has rejoined Primary Elements Gallery displaying his representational bronze sculpture.  He is working on a new piece for Cannon Beach involving our unique sea birds: the puffins, mures, oyster catchers and sand pipers.

The arts certainly remain a vibrant part of the Cannon Beach landscape.  So be sure to mark August 6th for both the anniversary celebrations at White Bird Gallery and the Cannon Beach Arts Association.  Try to remember where you were 40 years ago…..well, maybe we shouldn’t go back that far.  Come reminisce about the past and celebrate the future!

“The Studio Imagery of J. Scott Peck: a Collection of Intrigue”

News0 comments

The Bronze Coast Gallery is proud to be showcasing the exciting new work of J. Scott Peck. Although continuously experimenting with new techniques and tools to use for new images, Scott revisited his crystal and water submersion techniques and gave it a more refreshed and refined look. While still reflecting a classic technique used by Scott, his new pieces continue to uphold his standard of unique and alluring beauty.

“Mrs. S. Dragon” (shown above), is a wonderful example of the revisited water submersion technique. The ethereal lighting Scott has captured makes the flower appear to glow. In contrast to the technique of the snap dragon, “Yellow Lizzie” (shown left) is the revisited crystals technique in which the crystals are now the foreground instead of the background—adding mystery and intrigue to the piece.

Both pieces are a part of a wonderful new collection that the gallery is showcasing. www.bronzecoastgallery.com

Cannon Beach’s popular “Plein Air and More” event has grown to three days this year and will include more than two dozen artists represented by Cannon Beach’s art galleries. They will be creating works of art on location throughout the town and on the beach. Many will work in the traditional method of plein air painting, while others will sculpt, and photograph in their own unique styles. Individual galleries will display the finished works and host receptions for the artists.

You’re invited to sit and watch, ask questions, or even pick up your own brushes and participate in a workshop with Michael Orwick, noted plein air painter, in the week leading up to the event
