8th Annual Plein Air & More, June 24-26, 2016
Cannon Beach has not only been named “One of the Best Art Towns in America” , but National Geographic has also listed it as “One of the Most Beautiful Places in the World.” So…what more could you ask for if you’re a plein air artist? That’s why they continue to come from around the world to capture the unique elements of this landscape “in the open air”. To celebrate this challenging artistic style and the work of the artists, the Cannon Beach Gallery Group is presenting the 8th Annual Plein Air & More festival. Scheduled for June 24-26, the event will feature nearly 50 artists creating art on location throughout the town and on the beach. Many will be painting. But, as you wander through town and along the beach you’ll also find sculptors working in stone, or creating the clay forms that will eventually be cast in bronze, jewelers, ceramic artists, basket weavers and metal workers. The weekend will also include music by the Boca Marimba Band, gallery receptions, children's activities and a spectacular raku firing on the beach. Galleries will also host receptions for their featured artists. During the week, leading up to the event, several nationally recognized artists will also be conducting workshops.
