Directions: Google Maps and other online mapping programs can have a problem directing you to the VAC. Here are the easiest directions to follow: heading north or south on Hwy. 101, turn west on NW 3rd St. Proceed straight down the hill. At the second stop sign, turn right. One short block later, turn left under Nye Beach archway. Proceed straight to Nye Beach turnaround and parking lot. The VAC is the large blue and gray building off the turnaround. To director offices and upper parking lot: turn west of Hwy. 101 at NW 3rd St. Head down hill. At second stop sign, continue straight 1.5 blocks, with the Sylvia Beach Hotel remaining on your left. The VAC administrative offices can be accessed through the smaller, upper parking lot.

Event Description:

The next Exhibition Coffee for volunteers and anyone interested in exploring volunteering opportunities at the Newport Visual Arts Center (VAC) starts at 11 a.m. Aug. 8 at the center. Karen Fitzgibbon, showing in the Coastal Oregon Visual Artists Showcase, will speak to the group about her multi-media figures and ceramics. 

OCCA is seeking volunteers to welcome visitors to the VAC’s Upstairs Gallery from 12 to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons and to help with OCCA receptions, events, data entry and projects. We are also seeking a volunteer to help design and schedule a series of workshops for children and adults as well as volunteers who have experience with data entry, email address books, and social media. 

Do you have a skill that would help us celebrate, promote and develop community arts?
