Plein Air and More at the Cannon Beach Gallery

The weekend of June 27-29, 2014 promises to be a lively one in the town of Cannon Beach for art lovers with lots of art related happenings scheduled for Plein Air and More. Here at the Cannon Beach Gallery, there will be a special Artist’s Conversation on Saturday, June 28 at 4 pm with Bob Gamblin, Gretha Lindwood, and Scott Gellatly.
All three artist will be working outdoors during the afternoon on Saturday, stop by the gallery to find out where.
In the evening, there will be an Artist’s Reception from 5-7 pm with light refreshments.
Plein Air painting is a painting done outside rather than in a studio. The term comes from the French en plein air, meaning ‘in the open air’. The Impressionists were particularly interested in the influence of changing light outdoors on color. The artist in Shared Oregon Visions carry on this grand tradition in contemporary works that explore the Oregon landscape and famous European cities.
Plein Air and More is a town wide event hosted by the Cannon Beach Gallery Group.

The CBAA would like to extend a warm and heart felt thank you to the Clastop Cultural Trust and Oregon Cultural Trust for making this possible.
Also, a thank you is in order to all of the teachers and art mom’s who worked with the CBAA Gallery Committee to handle the logistics of the show.
Congratulations! And remember to make lots of art this summer! CBAA’s Art Camp is a good place to land for just this activity.
