On May 4, 5 & 6th, the members of the Cannon Beach Gallery Group invite you to play along the shores of Cannon Beach and in the varied and beautiful galleries of our town. Nestled between the wild ocean and the coastal mountains Cannon Beach offers art and craft ranging from the playful to the sublime.
Each gallery will spotlight new work by their chosen artists. Unveiling demos and receptions take place all weekend long, making this event an unparalleled experience for the art lover.
The tradition called “En Plein Aire” describes the action of the artist painting in the open air. The Cannon Beach Gallery Group has expanded on that idea and created “Plein Air & More” arts weekend. The weekend begins with a Friday Night opening reception where the public can come and “Meet and Greet” the artists from 5pm to 7pm at the Chamber Building. Each artist will have a piece of their work on display Friday evening. Light bites and wine will be served. On Saturday, the artists will be out and about creating various pieces of artwork—please see the artist location schedule below. Each gallery will hold artists receptions Saturday evening and on Sunday there will be a group gallery show at the Chamber from 11-4 with some of the newly created artwork displayed. All pieces displayed will be available for sale. Additionally there are various workshops being conducted throughout the week, please see our website, www.cbgallerygroup.com for complete details.
So take some time to wander our beautiful town, interact with all the artists, join the receptions and pick up a newly created piece or artwork for your home.
