The newly refinished floors at the Cannon Beach Gallery look Dynamite!

We would like to extend a sincerely felt thank you to the Reser Family Foundation for awarding the CBAA the funds to have our floors refinished. The Cannon Beach Gallery space has benefited greatly from the work, with a new quality of light apparent when you walk in the door.

The newly refinished floors are helping the artwork shine at the Cannon Beach Gallery! Here is a shot of Peter Greaver and Carl Annala's exhibition, which is now open through January 25, 2015.

The effect is even more wonderful than we had hoped for, and truly helps to showcase the artwork on display here at the gallery in its best light!

The Oregon Cultural Trust has a matching gift program that shows up as a tax credit at the end of the year!

It is not too late to make your 2014 donation to the CBAA with a matching gift to the Oregon Cultural Trust and take advantage of a tax credit.
The CBAA is a participating Cultural Nonprofit in this program which benefits both local, grassroots non profits and state wide programming.
The Oregon Cultural Trust partners with over 1,300 cultural nonprofits throughout Oregon. A gift to one or more of these qualifying nonprofit organizations followed by a matching gift to the Oregon Cultural Trust allows a donor to claim a tax credit. The tax deductible portion of memberships to many Oregon cultural organizations also qualifies toward the matching gift.
It is surprising that more Oregonians don’t take advantage of this program, according to the Oregon Cultural Trust, less than 9,000 tax payers are currently utilizing this tax credit.
You can download the form to become a member right here, on our website, or stop by the Cannon Beach Gallery during regular business hours.
