Northwest by Northwest Artist – Christopher Burkett

5th Annual Plein Air & More Festival June 28-30, 2013 – Will Feature Work of More than 20 Artists

Uncategorized0 comments

It’s hard to imagine a more picturesque setting than this small north Oregon Coast beach town. For years, the spectacular natural beauty of Cannon Beach has beckoned artists from around the world out of their studios to capture unique elements of this landscape “en plein air” or “in the open air”.  To celebrate this challenging artistic style and the work of the artists, the Cannon Beach Gallery Group is presenting the 5th Annual Plein Air & More festival. Scheduled for June 28-30, the event will include 25 artists represented by a dozen of Cannon Beach’s art galleries

The featured artists will create art on location throughout the town and on the beach on Friday and Saturday with their work showcased at gallery receptions on Saturday evening. They will also participate in a group show at the Cannon Beach Chamber Building Friday evening. The events are free and will take place rain or shine.

Maps detailing the location of each artist will be available at all Cannon Beach Gallery Group locations and the Chamber of Commerce. Visitors are encouraged to ask questions of the artists while they work, or simply observe.

Jacques and Mary Regat

These two amazing sculptors began their lives working alone, but say that "sculpting together is like have a whole set of new tools to work with." Today they are working in bronze, silver, wood and paint and their work reflects their studies in Alaska, Central and South America and France. They especially enjoy sculpting in large scale and have several major monuments to their credit that are installed in public places in Alaska.

Linda Prokop

Linda Prokop’s mature work is the evolution of her soul. It speaks and demands attention as she shares her spirit with us and exposes her deepest feelings. Many of her sculptural themes relate to the human condition of struggle and perseverance and she depicts the human form in a simplified, abstract manner. In recent years, Prokop has turned to oil painting as another creative outlet and says sculpting and painting really complement each and working in the two art forms has made her a better artist.

Donnie Wanner

The automobile was the form that first captivated the mind and imagination of artist Donnie Wanner. Working for an automobile manufacturer and being a quick learner with an artist’s eye, he was fascinated by the molding of metal, welding, fabricating, mold making, coloring, and the ultimate production of something that was fresh, exciting, and stimulating to look at. He is recognized as a highly skilled artist specializing in metal wall sculptures depicting landscapes of regional scenes



Janet Bland

Janet’s work is a personal response to nature and to the experience of painting.  She says, "There is an importance in what you see each day – here, the moist coastal light, the ocean, the beach, the tide and clouds – such regular occurrences, so dependable, so different, always a surprise … let the paint tell the story."

Marilyn Joyce

Marilyn’s interest in the natural world, combined with a walking practice of seven years, provide parameters for her work. Intuitive gestures, mark-making and staining, combined with direct observation and felt experiences are distilled through the processes of drawing, painting, printmaking and installation. She is currently working on a project documenting the massive injury of a clear-cut on the land and its inhabitants adjacent to her studio. The work tells a story of destruction, our inability to acknowledge our deep interconnectedness with the land, and in spite of this, how nature provides healing. 


Anton Pavlenko

A Ukrainian born painter, Anton has always been drawn to creating imagery. His earliest memories are of drawing Russian cartoon characters before he immigrated to the United States with his family as a toddler. Encouraged by his father, he persisted in educating himself about art and painting, and today remains largely self-taught and deeply inspired by the natural world.

Michael Orwick

Michael’s skill as a landscape artist creates compelling views of our world that move beyond time and place – places as mysterious as Oregon’s craggy coast, as unpredictable as a glacial view of Mount Hood, or as serene as an Oregon waterfall. His work can conjure up thoughts of Remington in his most enamored moments with the majestic west, or the dance of an impressionist on a pond or the snow.


The natural beauty of the Oregon Coast brought George to Cannon Beach in 1977, and since then his library of digital images has grown to more than 100,000, many of which have appeared in local and national publications. During the Lewis and Clark Expedition’s 200 th anniversary, he worked with the Great Falls, Montana Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center, where his image entitled "Clark’s View" is now an 8 foot high wall mural.


Janis Ellison

Drawn to the dramatic landscape of New Mexico, Janis painted alongside her friends and mentors in the budding days of the early pastel painters of this century. Her love of nature and the outdoors was a natural companion to her passion for painting plein air. In 2006, she moved to southern Oregon, where the pristine setting of the area provides endless inspiration for her work. Honors include signature status in the pastel Society of New Mexico, Sierra Pastel Society and the Northwest Pastel Society.

Sally O’Neill

Throughout her life, Sally has always been involved in the arts, painting, drawing and music. After working primarily in watercolor beginning in the 80’s, she went back to working solely in oils in 1998, and knew this was the perfect medium for expressing her obsession with light, color and atmosphere. She is both a plein air and studio artist.

Pat Lambrecht-Hould

Pat received her formal training at the University of Montana, Montana State University and Eastern Montana College. She majored in Applied Arts beginning as a sculptor, later expanding into oil painting and has spent the last 25 years working in watercolor and acrylics. She now works exclusively in mixed media often using vibrant colors and layers of texture. Her work is done on a gold leafed surface using the leaf as a reflected light source. "The work is experimental."


Jim Kingwell

What began as a five-year experiment evolved into a life-forming fascination with glass for Jim Kingwell. Today, he has pieces in all 50 states and in more than 40 countries. His new work offers a fabulous array of colors and forms as he melts a virtually colorless formula with exceptional clarity and handling capability that energizes every color he brings to his finished off-hand blown glass designs.

Suzanne Kindland

Suzanne’s journey into the world of glass began with a dream where she was suspended in a pillar of fire. Turning in the flames she found herself dancing. That dancing continues as she continues to learn the ways of glass, creating with it as her partner and bringing forth objects reminiscent more of water than fire: cool, smooth forms that reflect light as a pond does, sculptures that bend the light as a ripple does, calm creations that transmit light like the stillest pool.

Pamela Juett

Pam Juett first fell in love with hot glass while watching a demo in Cannon Beach in 1977. After exploring the many ways of working with this amazing medium, she has found her niche in flameworking, making beads that become stunning pieces of wearable art. She will be taking custom orders during Plein Air & More.

Jeffrey Hull began his painting career 40 years ago as a resident of Cannon Beach. Known for his ability to capture the beauty and moods of the places where water joins land, Jeffrey controls the difficult medium of watercolor, often in very large paintings. Recently he returned to painting in oil as well. Rarely found far from the ocean’s edge, his deep love for the area is clearly seen in his original paintings and prints. He is a signature member of the prestigious American Society of Marine Artists.


Mary McInnis

Mary McInnis has been creative in some way from earliest childhood. While working on her BFA at the University of Washington she studied oil painting and discovered pastels. But having two children created a need to put oils away for a time and concentrate on the pastels. After returning to oil painting in 2008 she now divides her time between the two mediums and her pastel painting style, using the side of the pastel stick, easily lent itself to her current style in oils. Recently she has been spending more time en plein air, currently living in Port Orchard, Wa.


Georgia Gerber

Georgia’s bronze sculptures define many NW public spaces, including "Rachel the Pike Place Pig" in Seattle’s Pike Place Market and 25 sculptures surrounding Pioneer Courthouse in downtown Portland. Gerber won the vote in 2010 for her Tufted Puffins. She typically works on two to three public installation commissions at one time bringing forth the essence of the subject using the traditional lost wax casting technique.

Eric Jacobsen

Copely award winning oil painter Eric Jacobsen is well known to collectors and painters alike. His works have been published numerous times including Southwest Art Magazine. Arts & Antiques named him one of the most exciting emerging artists in America in 2001. This summer he was part of the Plein Air Invitational at the Portland Art Museum. He loves painting seascapes in Cannon Beach. He says, "The whole point of plein air painting is to capture the immediate light, mood and season while painting outside".


Marianne Post

Because she is an avid outdoors woman, Marianne’s subject is "naturally" the landscape. Using soft pastels in a "painterly" impressionistic style, her award winning work reflects quiet morning vistas, light glinting off the water’s surface and the grandeur of the Oregon high country. It also conveys her fascination with nature, light and color.

Rob Ramage

Rob believes that painting landscapes creates space. Looking at a natural setting that is void of human presence clears out our everyday clutter and allows us to get "reset" or "re-invent" and envision a place where we can connect to life on a more basic fundamental level.

Heather Soderberg

Heather’s father was a foundry worker and encouraged and supported her desire to sculpt. Drawing national attention as a child prodigy, her story was featured by Paul Harvey, People Magazine, Nat’l Geographic World, and "That’s Incredible". In 2009 she bought the foundry she worked at and moved it to the heart of the Columbia River Gorge. Her "Sacagawea, Pompi, and Seaman" commissioned by the Port of Cascade Locks, has gained regional and worldwide attention.


Artist Sharon Amber is best known for her jewelry designs that incorporate local "gems" carved into mermaids, seascapes, and faces bedecked with exotic colored stones. But during Plein Air & More, she will also make the chips fly, carving local sandstone or marble into images related to the sea, just outside her new gallery location on the ground floor of Sandpiper Square.


Pamela Wachtler-Fermanis

A career in commercial art brought Pamela to the Pacific Northwest, and ultimately to her decision to return to her first love, oil painting.

Whenever possible she paints en plein air to capture the fleeting qualities of light and the immediacy of the moment. She has been featured in seven solo shows and 35 juried and invitational group shows.

Christopher Mathie

Having spent a lifetime constantly observing, questioning and creating, Christopher’s current fast-paced, high-energy painting technique appears spontaneous to on-lookers, but his confident bold marks have been long in the making. His signature style focuses on deconstructing images to their most important lines and organic forms. His intention is to stylize forms into "something more like poetry."

Dave and Boni Deal

This husband and wife team has collaborated in clay for more than 30 years, working fulltime at their rustic home studio in the Cascades. They have worked almost solely in raku since the 70’s, and are known for large classical forms and intricate surface designs. A unique aspect of their pottery is the focus on the native environment … the plants, geology, and wildlife that are reflected in the themes and materials used in their work, like the heron urns, leaf imprint pots and landscape triptychs. During the weekend, they will be doing a Raku firing on the beach.
