One of my most favorite art events of the year.
The Quick Draw is a fund-raiser sponsored by the Cannon Beach Chamber of Commerce supporting the artists' community. Approximately one dozen artists have been invited to participate in the Draw. Each artist has exactly one crazy scary hour to complete an entire piece, while those who purchased tickets are able to eat and drink fine wine and local beers while they watch (taunt) them create their masterpieces. At the end of the hour, ticket holders may bid for the completed works. This is an amazing and exciting event that sells out annually.
Stormy Weather Arts Festival, Friday, Saturday, Sunday (Nov 7 -Nov 9, 2008) is Cannon Beach's fall celebration of the arts. Cannon Beach, home to many galleries and artists, comes alive with creativity. The galleries, shops, restaurants and motels all get in on the act - featuring musicians, artists, performances, and exhibits throughout town. Friday nights Quick Draw event is an art lovers dream. Up to 10 or more artists have one hour to create a piece ready to be sold in the auction that follows. Food, drink and original art created before your eyes by well known local and regional artists is a Quick (and irresistible) Draw. Quick Draw tickets sold only in advance. To purchase call 503-436-2623. The 2008 schedule is yet to be announced.
