When It’s Stormy Weather in Cannon Beach,
Artists Are Seen at Work
One of the 100 Best Art Towns in America, Cannon Beach, Oregon will host its 27th Annual Stormy Weather Arts Festival, November 7-9, 2014. This regional favorite festival features three days of arts events, receptions, and exhibitions by local and prominent regional artists in the galleries and all around town.
Some of the Northwest’s most successful artists including Bronze Sculptor Georgia Gerber and Fine Art Photographer Christopher Burkett will exhibit. See Cannon Beach Art Galleries for individual reception, exhibit and music details. Other signature festival events include Art in Action on Friday night, showcasing professional artists at work. And a Saturday evening concert, featuring Cooper and the Jam.
The weekend kicks off with the Friday night event, Art in Action, where professional artists represented by Cannon Beach galleries are in the spotlight, demonstrating their techniques in painting, sculpture or other media. Finished works will be for sale at the event and a silent auction will offer attendees the opportunity to bid on unique Cannon Beach experiences, travel packages and other items.
On Saturday, musicians will be performing throughout town as galleries host artist receptions and demonstrations throughout the day and evening. Cooper and the Jam, who recently opened for Mavis Staples and Robert Plant at the Waterfront Blues Festival in Portland, will perform in concert in the intimate Coaster Theatre on Saturday night.
