One of the ways that the Cannon Beach Arts Association supports the Cannon Beach Gallery is by securing Exhibit Underwriters throughout the year. There are still several dynamic exhibits in 2015 that need to be matched up with an Exhibit Underwriter.
Gretha Lindwood started showing at the Cannon Beach Gallery last summer as part of our Shared Oregon Visions exhibition. Since then, her miniatures have become a sought after item by gallery patrons. Lindwood just delivered a group of eight new pastels, 6″ x 6″ in response to this insatiable demand for her elegantly rendered pastels.
Martin Hospitality will sponsor the annual Summer Art Camp program and they will also act as the Exhibit Underwriter for the annual Miniatures show.
Cannon Beach artist, Steve McLeod is known equally for his background in fine arts and as an avid beach comber and collector of tsunami debris. His work is a reflection of the life of the ocean and how worlds collide with modern plastics as a part of the worlds seas.
