Carol Riley’s sumptuous watercolors depict bird and botanical themes in vibrant colors that would illuminate any space. Andie Thram’s paintings depict the depth and mystery of the forest. Artist Greg Wilbur employed an ancient metal-smithing process to stretch malleable metal into freestanding sculptures and dynamic wall hangings that add striking architecture to a room. Deborah DeWit brings on the gilt with “Neighborhood” and a series of paintings depicting everyday sights in extraordinary renderings The show runs through July 31.

We Thank The Driftwood Restaurant & Lounge

The Cannon Beach Gallery Group was surprised when one of our sponsors, Paul Nofield from the Driftwood Restaurant & Lounge, presented us with a check for over $300. The money was from the “Art from the Chef’s Table” during Spring Unveiling weekend.

The Chef’s Table was a new feature for this year’s Spring Unveiling event. Local chefs, candy makers and coffee houses partnered with the galleries, selecting a work of art that inspired their own food creations.

The Driftwood Restaurant’s feature dish was Oysters Rockefeller, inspired by watercolor artist Jeffrey Hull’s painting “Oyster Flats”. All of the money from the sale of Driftwood’s Oyster Rockefeller dish was presented to the Gallery Group by Paul in appreciation for the event.

From the very beginning of the Gallery Group, 12 years now, the Driftwood Restaurant has been an avid sponsor of the Gallery Group and our Spring Unveiling event. They have seen it from its infant stages to the success it has become. Bringing in tens of thousands of people to Cannon Beach, who come to not only enjoy the art galleries and their artists, but also the restaurants, hotels and retail shops.

We thank Paul and the Driftwood Restaurant for helping us make Spring Unveiling weekend a success.

Bets Cole has shown nationwide for 25 years. Her paintings are energetic, colorful, and usually executed in the plein air tradition. Bets received awards at Plein Air Invitational events in the Columbia Gorge and Zion National Park.

Phyllis Trowbridge is an Oregon painter whose work has exhibited at the Portland Art Museum and the Schneider Museum in Ashland.

Michael Lorenzini developed his love of painting via surfing. As a plein air painter, Lorenzini seeks to capture the mystical, wild nature of the ocean and its coastal surroundings in his art.

All three will demonstrate their craft at the Plein Air and More Festival.

Bronze Coast Gallery in Cannon Beach is currently featuring several new works of art in a variety of mediums.

A welded bronze and steel sculpture of a tufted puffin entitled “At Home Amongst the Waves” by wildlife sculptor Don Rambadt made its debut at the gallery during the Spring Unveiling Art Festival. ‘Lucy at Large’ is making her first appearance in Cannon Beach. Created by Oregon sculptor David Crawford, ‘Lucy ’ depicts a Dachshund on stilts. The sculpture was originally inspired by a little dog in New York City who helped her owner heal after the attacks of 9/11/01. ‘Neptune’, a limited edition bronze sea lion by wildlife artist Joshua Tobey, was created specifically with the Oregon coast in mind. Cary Henrie created several multi-media paintings featuring lighthouses at the request of the Bronze Coast Gallery in Cannon Beach. Visit us at
