2017 Artist Grant

The Cannon Beach Arts Association provides opportunities for emerging and professional artists in the form of an annual grant. The Individual Artist Grant 2017 will be awarded to a local artist working in fine art, film media, craft, literary endeavors, music, or theater to provide the support necessary to expand the artist’s creative process. It is the intent to encourage a wider art audience and quality art experiences within the community. The artist must provide a return to the community by means of a temporary exhibit, performance, community education, publication, or other means as specified in the proposal.

The Individual Artist Grant is open to visual artists, writers, performers and musicians showing serious intent and working to produce original material. Artists must be part of the Cannon Beach community, producing or actively exhibiting or performing within the city, or document short-term residence for the duration of the project proposed. Note that the Cannon Beach community includes Cannon Beach, Tolovana Park, and Arch Cape.
