Rosetta’s “High Country Totem” has won 2nd Place in the “Representing the West” show at the Sangre de Cristo Arts and Conference Center in Pueblo, CO. She told us… “This exhibition showcases over 100 pieces of original artwork answering the question of what the American West means to each artist” and I’m happy to have my view, that the animals are what is most meaningful to me, represented there.

 Cannon Beach Treasure  – Spring Unveiling Event


Cannon Beach Treasure

Mark your calendars!  The 15th Annual Spring Unveiling is set for May 1-3, 2015.  Run away to Cannon Beach for the weekend and join us as we unveil our exciting new collections.  Here at Cannon Beach Treasure you will have first pick of….

  • Glittering Silver Ecu’s (the size of a silver dollar), all that remains of the French vessel Le Chameau, which wrecked on the shores of Nova Scotia in 1725
  • Our extensive collection of rare trade beads – including the New World’s first trade beads brought by the earliest Spanish Explorers in the early 1500’s, and the coveted 7-layer Italian Chevron beads traded both here in through North America, including the Pacific Northwest, as well as in Africa.  And, my favorites, early Dutch wound annulars in the rarest colors!
  • An exclusive private collection of 1715 Fleet shipwreck Pieces of Eight in celebration of the 300th Anniversary of the 1715 Fleet – Robert can bezel one of these rare pieces to your specifications
  • Hand-hammered Frankish-Greco Crusader coins (as seen on History Channel’s Curse of Oak Island) stunning examples of medieval silver pieces bearing the Crusaders Cross

And, of course, many other fascinating artifacts, including “just arrived” apothecary and poison bottles from our diggers in England and Scotland – many in beautiful kelly green and cobalt blue.

March 5 – March 29, 2015

Artist’s Reception: March 7, 5 – 7 pm

Substrate: The ground upon which stuff is built. Also, substratum: The material of which something is made and from which it derived its special qualities.
Substrates is a group show where artists will utilize a variety of media to explore their impressions and expressions of substrates.  The exhibit will run from March 5 – 29, 2015 with an Artist’s Reception on Saturday, March 7 from 5 -7 pm.

Artists Marilyn Joyce is from Portland, along with Mary Ann Puls, and Shawn Demarest while Liza Jones, Susan C. Walsh and Kathleen Ryan are all from Manzanita.

“Since my work is inspired by what is experienced on my walks over a variety of terrain, the substrate literally becomes the land that I walk on, and the layers beneath. In further exploring the concept of substrate, I was drawn to a fundamental place within my art practice of drawing on paper. The paper is the foundation upon which the marks, thick and thin layers of material, form information based on the graphite and charcoal – a back and forth dance that creates a tactile quality. In these drawings, the material itself took precedence over the image, with one drawing informing the next,” writes Marilyn Joyce about her latest body of work on view at the Cannon Beach Gallery.  Joyce has been showing at the gallery the last two years as a featured artist where the rich variety of her work has been well received by patrons.

MaryAnn Puls creates non-representational art using a combination of re-purposed materials and substrates including pencil, paint and collage elements.  Each piece records spontaneous impulses and thoughtful arrangements.

“Everyday visual stimuli, words and an arm-chair interest in natural science create constant fodder and themes in my work,” Puls explains of her process.
