Haystack Gallery, celebrating its 36th Anniversary this year, has set aside the month long April Exhibition for their “Whimsical” artists: Bishop/Cowdery, Sue Howells, Jeff Zigulis and Bart DeGraaf.

We have everything from DeGraaf’s watercolors of frogs in martini’s, Bishop/Cowdery’s enameled glass and painted wood of animals doing crazy “people antics”, English artist Sue Howells’ fanciful watercolors of  people in London, to Washington artist Jeff Zigulis with his colorful ceramic dream masks.

Join us this month and have a laugh, it’s our pleasure.

New Birds by Melissa Cooper Flock to Bronze Coast Gallery

News0 comments

Several new exquisite bronze sculptures by Melissa Cooper have landed at Bronze Coast Gallery. ‘Morning Companions’ has two gray doves sitting atop a three-sided vessel, ‘Yellow Warbler’ is perched on a branch above a small round pot, and ‘Cherry Blossoms’ depicts two song birds attached to the side of a warm patinaed vase adorned with cherry blossoms. ‘Winter Berries’ shows a plump robin holding holly berries on top of a square perch. ‘Wine Warbler’ arrived here during Savor Cannon Beach and is a clever and attractive stopper for that opened bottle of wine. After working for years in an art foundry, Cooper possesses a unique blend of technical expertise and artist’s vision. Her sculptures are known for their combination of graceful shape and, as the artist puts it, “fluffy and robust” charm. An impressionistic style suits Cooper well for a creature’s body. When it comes to the face, however, detail is key to infusing the animal with spirit and personality.

The Cannon Beach Gallery announces “Verde,” its second annual green-inspired art show, opening Saturday, April 6, 2013, with an Artist Reception that evening from 5-7 p.m. Featured artist Ashley Mersereau will exhibit new work from her highly successful jewelry line, RootsAndWings. Frequently utilizing up-cycled materials to create a polished finished product, pieces from the RootsAndWings line incorporate gold, silver, copper, gemstones, and pearls. The result is a jewelry line that reflects Ms. Mersereau’s philosophy to make her life, “in as many ways as possible, a beautiful, creative act.” The Verde Show also features a juried component to be curated by Royal Nebeker, former director of the art department at Clatsop Community College and internationally exhibited painter and printmaker. Artwork for the juried show should utilize natural or up-cycled materials and/or a green palette. Submissions will be accepted at the Gallery on April 4, 2013 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. The Gallery will also host an Artist’s Talk on Earth Day, April 20th at 4 p.m. in which artists who have work in the show will reflect on the question, “What does it mean to work green as an artist?”
