The Cannon Beach Gallery will be showcasing the work of the many volunteers who donate their time and talents to operate the programs of the Cannon Beach Arts Association in its’ annual Volunteer Show from December 6-31, 2012. The Artist Reception will be held on Saturday, December 8 from 6-8pm and will feature libations, appetizers and lively conversation.
The Cannon Beach Arts Association is a volunteer run, non-profit director with several programs that directly impact the quality of cultural life on the northern Oregon Coast, including an Annual Summer Art Camp that is held at the Cannon Beach Elementary School in late July, an Individual Artist Grant, Scholarships to High school seniors pursuing the arts and the Cannon Beach Gallery.
The Cannon Beach Gallery is manned primarily by a Docent Staff, and many of these individuals are artists who work in a variety of media. The Volunteer Show will showcase the photography of Manzanita resident, Linda Cook; paintings by Cannon Beach resident, Clement Lee and the fabric assemblages of another Cannon Beach resident, Bonny Gorsuch.
In addition, there will be new work by Gallery Committee members Liza Jones, Janet Bland, Barbara Temple Ayres and Sally Lackaff. Those members of the Board of Directors who are also artists will also have work on hand, including CBAA Board President, photographer Don Frank and Vice President Mary Bess Gloria.
So, all in all, it should be a colorful and diverse show which celebrates the multi-faceted talents of the many individuals who make the programs of the CBAA thrive.
The Canon Beach Gallery is open from 10am-4pm, Thursday-Monday in mid-town Cannon Beach in the Emma White Building (1064 S. Hemlock St.). If you are interested in getting involved in the programs of the Cannon Beach Arts Association, email the Executive Director, Andrea Mace at email@example.com .
