Contemporary Portraiture, February 15 – March 26, 2017

Contemporary Portraiture

Friends by Hanne Greaver and Catch of the Day by Phyllis Taylor

Juror: Martha Lee, Owner of Russo Lee Gallery

Cannon Beach Arts Association is pleased to announce our first juried show of 2017. The theme for the show is contemporary portraiture and is a complimentary show to the Au Naturel exhibition happening at Clatsop Community College. In today’s “selfie culture” this is the perfect opportunity to explore what role portraits now play in society.

Martha Lee of the Russo Lee Gallery selected just under twenty pieces from local artists which our volunteers hung. Stop by the gallery to view the work which will be on display from February 15th to March 26th, 2017.
