North Oregon Coast Art Scene Has New Additions
(Seaside, Oregon) – It all comes to fruition on Saturday, April 5. From 5 - 8 p.m., Seaside area galleries and stores are undertaking a particularly inviting first Saturday Art Walk, allowing the public to mingle with artists during the monthly festival. The Art Walk has added a couple of new venues and an awards aspect. Best of Show, Most Creative and Most Unusual ribbons will now be awarded each month by Seaside-Sun.com . Also, beginning this month, maps will include Chamber Member businesses who offer live music or entertainment on Art Walk nights.
Celebrating a grand opening and first participation in the Art walk is C by the Sea, 2305 S Roosevelt. Owners Chuck and Cynthia Miner are happy to promote and provide products for sale that are produced, crafted and grown only in the Pacific Northwest. The types of art represented include paintings, woodworking, fine art photography, hand crafted gifts, home decor, gift baskets, soaps, wooden toys, furniture and more by 30-plus artisans. Refreshments, hors devours and give-away prizes will be offered.
Artists whose works will be available include Carol Finck, Darla Reed, Bart Miller, Angela Baumgartner, Lynn Patterson, James LeBraun, Laura Kaim, Timmy Matthews, Joe Bush, Philip Mancill, Niki Nan Heitz, Mel Clark, Rick Young and Mark Kenny.
There is ample parking behind the building, located at the light on Hwy 101 and Avenue U.
Joining the walk for the first time is Pacific Crest Cottage in Gearhart (726 Pacific Way), expanding the Gearhart stops that include Trail’s End Art Association, the two are only a short walk – so park and one and be sure to visit the other. Maps are available at anylocation with an “Art Stop” sign out front on Saturday evening - or download from the “Art Walk” page at www.seasidechamber.com.
Also adding to the arty frivolity will be Goose Hollow, at the southern end of Seaside, which hosts music as well as art.
Music there begins at 7 p.m. on this Saturday, this time featuring Portland artist Johanna.
A quote from her website: “Johanna delivers her heartfelt songs with passion and profound musicianship. She has a stunning stylistic range, and a voice that never quits.”
Showing at the Goose on April 5th is Lorie Bennett. Her art takes a number of forms, including, but not limited to, painting, carving, photography and writing. “Anything, really, that requires right brain creativity,” Bennett says.
Lorie is a local favorite of many haunts: full of life and creativity. Owners of the establishment she was also a waitress extraordinaire at the Goose Hollow. She will be present for the showing.
Unlike many of the Art Walk participants, there isn’t complimentary food for the art walk. However, Goose Hollow does have 14 brews on tap, many wines and, of course, the Reuben sandwich that made the Portland Goose Hollow famous for decades. 220 Ave 503.717.1940. U, Seaside, Oregon.
