Creative Coast

Our New Space for Workshops and Talks

Creative Coast is a new program of the Cannon Beach Arts Association, dedicated to workshops and talks for adults aimed at increasing participation in the arts.

To kick things off this fall we are offering several workshops in which you will have the opportunity to learn everything from painting and printmaking to basket making and book making. Each class includes everything you need, so all you have to do is book and turn up. If you want to bring your own tools, that is fine too. If you want to continue to explore these mediums, the starter kit you will be using in the workshop will be available to purchase following the class. Each class runs for a five-hour duration including an hour lunch break. You are welcome to bring your lunch and continue to work through the scheduled lunch break.

In addition to the workshops the Creative Coast will be hosting a series of FREE artist development talks. These talks and discussion panels are meant to help share information between artists and arts professionals. As with the workshops anyone interested in art is welcome to join us in networking with our local arts community.

For further information please feel free to come visit us or give us a call at 503-436-4426. We are located in Suite 25 in Sandpiper Square, on the second floor right across from Cornerstone Framing and we are open Wednesday – Saturday, 11am – 4pm.

Complications of Childhood: Prints by Angela Purviance

Opening Reception: January 14th, 6pm – 8pm

Artist Talk: January 15th, 11am – Noon

Exhibitions Dates: January 14th – February 12th

Angela Purviance is becoming known for her vibrant color intaglio prints, which generally feature children in narratives that could be described as magical realism. Her topics blend her interests and backgrounds. For over ten years, she was an elementary art instructor, working with children. More recently, during the past 3 years, Angela has worked in wildlife rehabilitation. These experiences, in how both children and the environment are impacted through generations, have shaped her worldview and provide endless content for her work. During recent years, she has been privileged to work with Professor Yuji Hiratsuka at Oregon State University, which has had a profound impact on her choice of medium, opening up a new world of technical and artistic challenges, color copperplate etching. Angela has set up a home studio, having researched, innovated, and implemented less toxic printmaking methods. Intaglio is an adventure, intellectually and artistically challenging. Playing with the possibilities that it offers promises to keep Angela engaged for years to come.

Parenting Woes, Woodblock Print, 20×16 inches, by Angela Purviance

And, falling on my weary brain,

Like a fast-falling shower,

The dreams of youth came back again,

Low lispings of the summer rain,

Dropping on the ripened grain,

As once upon the flower.

Visions of childhood! Stay, O stay!

Ye were so sweet and wild!

And distant voices seemed to say,

“It cannot be! They pass away!

Other themes demand thy lay;

Thou art no more a child!

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, excerpt from Voices of the Night

Childhood is when we form our views of the world, relationships, and of ourselves. The impact of those beliefs carries over onto the next generation, influencing the relationships between one generation and the next. Most of the time this is a harmless effect, even beneficial. Words or events, both positive and negative, can shape our idea of who we are, of our strengths and weaknesses, impacting us for years. Exploring the relationship between events and beliefs formed in one childhood, and its trickling down through the generations, is an idea that has stuck, and though it takes many shapes (from climate change to emotional abuse), forms the core of my artistic content and influences the bulk of my work.

A recent example, “The New Normal” series, explores a range of contemporary environmental changes. “Jellyfish Ice Cream I & II” deals with the proliferation of giant jellyfish in the Sea of Japan, impacting the diversity of the ocean waters. Though older generations will remember it as it was, small children who grow up with this “new normal” will only have a dim sense of what’s been lost, perhaps envisioning it as they enjoy a bowl of jellyfish ice cream.
