The Cannon Beach Gallery announces a new show, Chimera: Mythological and Hybrid Creatures featuring a new collection by painter Dmitri Swain. Dmitri describes the work as a “narrative about creatures, animals, flowers, mycology, biology and even science itself…the canvas becomes a story weaving a tapestry about ecology.”
This exhibit includes a juried component. Artists may submit work related to the Chimera theme on Thursday, January 3 from 10am to 4pm at the Cannon Beach Gallery. By definition, “Chimera” refers to a fire-breathing female monster from Greek mythology, typically with a lion’s head, a goat’s body, and a serpent’s tail, but it can also represent any mythical creation of the imagination. Cathy Silver of Nehalem will curate the juried show. Chimera will run from January 5 -28, 2013, with an Artists’ Reception on Saturday, January 5, from 6-8pm.
Also of note at the Cannon Beach Gallery are the upcoming Mix and Mingle Jazz Nights featuring guitarist Wes Wahrmund. Beginning Friday, January 11, Mix and Mingle Jazz Nights will be held every Friday night from 6-8:30pm through June 7, 2013. This event is free and open to the public and is funded by the Cannon Beach Arts Association and the City of Cannon Beach’s Tourism and Arts Fund.
