For years, the spectacular natural beauty of Cannon Beach has beckoned artists out of their studios to capture unique elements of this landscape "en plein air" and nearly 50 artists will be on the streets, beaches and at scenic viewpoints throughout Cannon Beach creating fresh new works of art during the 9th Annual Plein Air & More festival, June 23-25, 2017.
The three-day festival weekend opens on Friday with artists creating works throughout the town, on the beach and in nearby settings. Artists continue to work outdoors on Saturday and children can join in the fun with activities just for them. Visitors can enjoy live music, then stroll down to the beach at Whale Park at sunset and watch the dramatic Raku firing process as husband and wife team Dave and Boni Deal reveal the wonders of this ceramic art form. Opportunities to meet and mingle with the artists at the individual gallery receptions and watch their works progress will happen throughout the weekend.
