The Cannon Beach Gallery is pleased to announce Astoria artist, Noel Thomas, will be the featured artist and curator of the upcoming juried show, Boats. Boats will run June 1 – June 24, 2013, with an Artist’s Reception held Saturday, June 1 between 5 – 7 p.m. Thomas is known for his evocative watercolor renderings of the vessels of the Columbia River, in particular the cargo ships. “Ships are practical and rugged, and I am drawn to how they embody the notion of form following function,” says Thomas of his inspiration.
The juried component of the show centers on the theme of boats. Submissions should be made in person on Thursday, May 30, between 10am-4pm. Artists may submit up to three pieces; all work must be exhibition ready. For submission guidelines, please visit the Cannon Beach Arts Association website at www.cannonbeacharts.org. The Boats exhibit has been underwritten by Lum’s Auto Center in Warrenton
