Cannon Beach presents Stormy Weather Arts Festival Nov. 1-3

Fall is a great time to visit the beach. All those blustery clouds, big waves and evenings around the fire. So if you’re planning a trip around early November, think about taking in the annual Stormy Weather Arts Festival in Cannon Beach. It’s three days of arts events with writers, singers, composers, painters and sculptors, Nov. 1-3.

Tickets: chamber@cannonbeach.org or 503- 436-2623. Information:cannonbeach.org.


Art galleries will present special exhibits and artist demonstrations and host receptions for their guest artists. Other events include a Quick Draw Demonstration and Auction on Friday night — artists work for one hour to create a finished work — and a Saturday night concert with award-winning blues artist Curtis Salgado in the 200-seat Coaster Theatre.
Artists, some of whom will demonstrate the process of making their art, include sculptor Georgia Gerber, known for her 25 bronze wildlife sculptures at Portland’s Pioneer Square Courthouse and the life-size bronze pig, Rachel, at the entrance to the Pike Place Public Market in Seattle. Bend glassblower Michelle Kaptur will be at the glassblowing studio, Icefire Glassworks. Bronze Coast Gallery will host five of the country’s top sculptors including Oregon’s David Crawford, Joshua Tobey (Colorado), Carol Gold (California), Jim Eppler and Robert Rogers (Texas).
