Featured Exhibits – Artists are invited to be featured at the Gallery for solo, group and themed exhibits. A committee oversees the selection of artists to be featured. Any interested artist(s) can submit a proposal to be featured. Artists may also make a proposal to be featured in the Gallery. A proposal should include digital images of artwork and a written description of what the artist is proposing to exhibit, along with any other materials that may help the Gallery Committee make selections. The Committee reviews artist’s packets as they are received throughout the year. Featured Artists can find a Consignment Form here: Consignment Agreement 2017

All artists must live or work regularly within northwest Oregon or southwest Washington.

Artist Grant – The CBAA, in conjunction with the City of Cannon Beach, provides an Individual Artist Grant each year to an artist, musician, performer or writer annually. This grant is intended to provide funding for an artist(s) to pursue a project of significance. Please email or call us for inquiries about specifics of this program.

Internship Program – The CBAA Internship Program had its inaugural year at the gallery in 2013. A college student was given the opportunity to work in the gallery during the summer months. The program allowed the recipient to enrich their personal arts experience while gaining real world experience in a commercial arts environment. It has been shown that college graduates who participate in an internship program gain the kind of real life work experience that employers are looking for in their employees. The program was a success for all involved and the CBAA is committed to providing such an experience for future interns. Email or call us for inquiries about specifics of this program.

Scholarships – A CBAA Scholarship Program has been established for graduating seniors of Seaside High School. The scholarship is awarded to a student(s) planning to pursue continuing education in the arts. This scholarship is not based on academic achievement and is not limited to students entering college. It is based on the arts interests and achievements of the students and their desire to pursue those interests. Please email or call us for inquiries about specifics of this program. The High School Scholarship History has a listing of past scholarship recipients. Additionally, we are partnering with the newly established Royal Nebeckar scholarship fund, as of 2017, to provide scholarships for students of Clatsop County.
