The Annual Volunteer Show at the Cannon Beach Gallery

News0 comments

December 9 – January 2, 2011/2012
Artist Reception: Saturday, December 3, 6-8 P.M.

The Cannon Beach Gallery will host its annual Volunteer Show from December 9-January 2, 2012 with an opening reception on Saturday, December 10 from 6-8pm.

The Cannon Beach Gallery is a program of the non-profit Cannon Beach Arts Association, and as such it relies on a group of dedicated volunteers to assist with operations throughout the year. Many of these volunteers are also artists, jewelers and photographers.

The Volunteer Show is a way of showcasing the talents of our Docent Staff, Gallery Committee Members, as well as members of the Board of Directors in a group show that will feature original art work in a variety of media.

Included in this years exhibit will be jeweler Elizabeth Pattison, a long time Cannon Beach artist in residence who works at the Gallery year round as a Docent. In addition, Bonny Gorsuch, whose lively assemblages and fabric collages always tell a story (sometimes one which is literally spelled out in Scrabble tiles) will have work on display. Gorsuch is also a long time Docent at the Gallery (ten years and running) and received the CBAA’s Individual Artist Grant in 2009 for a project entitled “Random Scraps of Fabric.”

In addition, the impressive etchings of Liza Jones and Paul Miller will be on display. Both Manzanita artists help with hanging exhibits throughout the year and Jones is instrumental to the success of the Gallery Committee.

Not to be left behind, several members of the CBAA’s Board of Director’s will also be displaying work including photographer Don Frank and the watercolor painter, Ireta Sitts-Graube.

There promises to be a lot of variety in the exhibit, including the popular felted creations of Jessica Sund, whose fingerless gloves have been flying out the Gallery doors this fall. In addition, the exquisite jewelry designs of Susie Frances Aoki will be on display, along with more traditional fine art pieces by such talented painters as Janet Bland and Barbara Temple Ayres.

For more information see the Cannon Beach Gallery web site.

December “Season of Sparkle” Features Jewelry from the Plains of Israel at Haystack Gallery

News0 comments

Haystack Gallery, celebrating its 34th anniversary in Cannon Beach, is featuring our jewelry “Trunk Show” for the month of December. Featured Artists will be silver jewelers living in Israel.

Roman Glass – This jewelry is the work of many talented designers at Kibbutz Revadim and is inspired by the beautiful surroundings and culture of Israel.

Their jewelry is inlaid with a fragment of Roman glass, discovered in an archaeological excavation in the Holy Land. The patina was created by chemical interaction with mineral-rich soil over the course of 2000 years.


Beit-Nir – This special collection of silver jewelry is the work of two talented designers inspired by the beautiful surroundings at Kibbutz Beit-Nir and by Israeli culture.

Ziva Goren was born in Israel and studied art, crafts & interior design at the Bezalel School of Arts in Jerusalem. She was one of the founders of a small workshop that grew into the Beit-Nir Jewelry factory. Sarah Salomon was born in Israel and studied art, sculpture, painting and jewelry design in Memad, one of the finest institutes in Israel.

For more than 40 years, Beit-Nir Jewelry has crafted a unique line of hand-made jewelry combining silver with gold and semi-precious stones in their studio in Kibbutz Beit-Nir in the hills of the Negev Desert.

A Successful 2011 Stormy Weather Arts Festival

News0 comments

As advertised, we had a little rain, a little wind and a little sun for the SWAF weekend. But Saturday night was clear and crisp and all of the receptions were well attended.

The people who attended enjoyed seeing and talking to the fifty plus artists who spent the weekend at the galleries, seemingly in their element as they were talking about and demoing their art. Here are just a few of our successes.

“New artist to Modern Villa Gallery, Thomas Hughes graced and wowed the crowd with his debuted mechanical wall sculptures. Clients kept Thomas busy working the mechanical features and talking about the process of start of finish. Using a mix of recycled woods, including his own pear tree, each feature is hand carved, with only a few nuts and bolts purchased to make it all come together!”

During the 2011 SWAF weekend Jeffrey Hull released his newest Giclèe Print, “Short Sands Bridge. “Occasionally in the process of painting everything comes together beautifully and simply works. Short Sands Bridge is one of those watercolors that bloomed right before my eyes.”




“Rip Caswell sculpting in Primary Elements Gallery, the first three in this edition were pre-sold .”

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.
