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.

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.

Cary Henrie created several multi-media paintings featuring lighthouses at the request of the Bronze Coast Gallery in Cannon Beach. Visit us at

Sheila Evans pastels are beautiful , lyrical and sensitive…her subtle , intuitive sense of color makes me think of Turner or Constable-or the hues you hear in a Yo-Yo Ma cello solo”. Ben Mitchell, Senior Curator of Art, Northwest Museum of Art & Culture
Congratulations to Sheila as she has just sold a work for the permanent museum collection of the pastel museum in France after she received the Award for Creativity from the Saint Aulaye’s Pastels Salon International. The museum is named for the town Saint Aulaye,
Dordogne, France. Sheila holds signature membership with the Pastel Society of America and the Northwest Pastel Society. All works are presented to museum archival standard.
Sheila uses soft pastel on archival paper . Iridescent effects emerge as she builds layer upon layer, alternating cool and warm tones. Her paintings are all original, one of a kind works- never a reproduction of any kind.
