"Sunset Shore" by Jeffrey Hull

“Sunset Shore” by Jeffrey Hull

I started this watercolor several months ago as a demonstration for the Spring Unveiling Arts Festival. While I don’t teach or offer workshops for artists I do answer questions and reveal techniques and secrets readily when I’m in my gallery. A frequently asked question is how do you get the appearance of sparkle in your watercolors? In this case I used Holbein Gold mixed in with other pigment because when applied very thinly it communicates “salty air” so appropriate for a painting of the setting sun along the pacific coast.
This painting sat partially completed in my studio where I would see if often as I waited for the right moment to finish it. Probably the most common question artists are asked is how long did it take you to paint that? In this case it literally took months.
Quiet peaceful sunsets always inspire me but capturing their brilliance and purity is challenging even after 40 years of painting watercolor.

The Cannon Beach Arts Association is pleased to announce that it will be hosting Bonnie Laing-Malcolmson, the curator of Northwest Art at the Portland Art Museum, as the guest curator for the Winter All Juried Show.  A steward of the art scene in the Northwest, Laing-Malcolmson promises to be a dynamic curator and a great draw for artists from across the region.

The Winter All Juried Show will run from February 4 – March 1, 2015.  The Submission date for artists to drop up to three original pieces of artwork to the Cannon Beach Gallery will be Friday, January 30 between 10 am – 4 pm.
The curatorial process will happen on Saturday, January 31 during the morning hours. Artwork that is not accepted into the exhibit will be available to pick up starting Saturday afternoon between 2 pm – 4 pm and on Sunday, February 1 between 10 am – 4 pm.

The opening Artist’s reception will be held the following weekend, Saturday, February 7, 2015. Laing- Malcolmson will be on hand during the artist’s reception to meet artists and patrons.

In addition, every two years, she’ll assemble the Contemporary Northwest Art Awards, a group show that focuses on the work of several regional artists.

December 21 – January 25, 2015

Artist’s Reception:  Saturday, January 3, 5-7 pm

Fary Tea & Craft Party:  Sunday, January 4, 2-4 pm

The winner of the 2014 Individual Artist Grant, Peter Greaver, will present his year-long project in an exhibition that opens on December 21 with an Artist’s Reception on Saturday, January 3 from 5-7 pm. The exhibit will run until January 25, 2015.

Greaver has spent the last year exploring the hidden world of fairies in a reflection on the mystical aspects of the natural world. Greaver will show a collection of Fairy Houses and mixed media work, two-dimensional work.

“Raised in a family of artists, I have been drawing since I could hold a crayon. Many of my earliest drawings are images of elves and fairies,” Greaver explains about his early inspiration for the project that he has been working on for the last year.

“These fairy houses are inspired by Victorian fairy painting and vintage children’s books, as well as older folklore. I am also inspired by old Chinese spirit houses; miniature houses where the spirit of ancestors were welcomed and remembered,” Greaver writes in his artist statement.

Painter Carl Annala will be exhibiting a series of paintings of the forest as a personal cathedral to accompany Greaver’s work.

“The forest is a cathedral and my heaven lies in the quiet wreckage of the forest. In the forest I see echoes of the modern world; networks, collapse, growth, fruit and homes. I look with a modern painter’s eye to find powerful compositions to photograph in the most chaotic areas of the forest. Being a student of both Lucinda Parker and Christie Wyckoff, I see their marks in me now, I stand one foot in a pile of minute twigs an the other in a heap of thick paint, pushing photography towards abstract expressionism, pushing painting towards neo-post-impressionism,” Carl Annala writes of his latest body of work.

Funds were received from U. S. Bank’s charitable giving grant program for the Columbia Pacific Region to sponsor the Individual Artist Grant show as an Exhibit Underwriter.
