The Cannon Beach Gallery will host a group exhibition entitled Still Lives. More than 35 regional artists will share their interpretation of the classic theme, still life. Typically, still life refers to an artistic rendering of inanimate objects such as fruit or flowers, but doubtless there will be some surprises as this dynamic group of creatives works with a variety of media to push the limit of what it means to be inanimate.
Local favorites such as Hanne and Harry Greaver, Liza Jones, M.J. Anderson, Janet Bland and Sally Lackaff will participate in this fundraiser exhibition in which the artists will donate some portion of their commission as a fundraiser for the Cannon Beach Arts Association, which operates the Cannon Beach Gallery as one of its primary cultural programs.
Artists were provided with 12”x12” wooden panels and given creative license to interpret the theme of still life. A total of 100 pieces will be hung for the show, creating a must-see installation of Still Lives. Each piece will sell for $125 and is an affordable way for collectors to purchase an original work of art by their favorite local artist.
Participating artists have exhibited in the space before and graciously donate their time and craft to show appreciation for this local venue for original fine art.
In addition, the CBAA commissioned popular folk artist Zemula Fleming to create three beaded mosaics for its Fall Art Raffle. Tickets are on sale now for a drawing that will coincide with Stormy Weather Arts Festival November 1-3, 2013. First prize is for “Pensive Lady,” one of Fleming's larger intricate, beaded mosaics of a Renaissance woman. A second place prize consists of two of Fleming's small beaded mosaics, entitled Celtic Girl and Jester. Tickets are $5 each or five for $20.
