The Cannon Beach Gallery announces “Verde,” its second annual green-inspired art show, opening Saturday, April 6, 2013, with an Artist Reception that evening from 5-7 p.m. Featured artist Ashley Mersereau will exhibit new work from her highly successful jewelry line, RootsAndWings. Frequently utilizing up-cycled materials to create a polished finished product, pieces from the RootsAndWings line incorporate gold, silver, copper, gemstones, and pearls. The result is a jewelry line that reflects Ms. Mersereau’s philosophy to make her life, “in as many ways as possible, a beautiful, creative act.” The Verde Show also features a juried component to be curated by Royal Nebeker, former director of the art department at Clatsop Community College and internationally exhibited painter and printmaker. Artwork for the juried show should utilize natural or up-cycled materials and/or a green palette. Submissions will be accepted at the Gallery on April 4, 2013 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. The Gallery will also host an Artist’s Talk on Earth Day, April 20th at 4 p.m. in which artists who have work in the show will reflect on the question, “What does it mean to work green as an artist?”
