“Miniature Show”

The Cannon Beach Arts Association & Gallery is thrilled to announce the opening of our highly anticipated “Miniature Show!” during the Stormy Weather Arts Festival. This one-of-a-kind exhibition celebrates the stunning artistry of local and regional artists, who have embraced the challenge of working within the constraints of this compact form, 6×6” inches or smaller.

Through their virtuoso skills and dedication, they have created breathtaking landscapes, heartfelt portraits, abstract compositions, sculptures, and beyond. As you wander through the exhibition, take the time to observe the meticulous craftsmanship that has gone into each artwork. Embrace the intimacy of these small-scale wonders, for they hold within them hidden stories waiting to be discovered.
