Every year Cannon Beach Chamber of Commerce puts together a fabulous program for the Stormy Weather Arts Festival in the first weekend of November. As part of this festival the galleries come together to present a walk of new exhibitions and receptions on the Friday and Saturday nights. This year Imprint Gallery has curated a show to introduce four new artists, Doug Whitfield, Carla O'Connor, Michael Kelly, and Ruth Hunter. “& Others” is an exhibition showcasing contemporary figurative work, focusing on the nature of humanity rather than the depiction of the human form. It is about the people we are, believe our selves to be, hope or fear others see us as, and how we see others. The show also features the works of Duy Huynh and Emily McPhie.
The gallery is also presenting an exhibit of mixed media sculpture as a vehicle to introduce the work of Geoffrey Gorman. Geoffrey Gorman is an established sculptor who has had significant influence in the genre of mixed media sculpture using found, recycled and unusual materials.
The Stormy Weather Arts Festival central pillar is a series of concerts and events, making this an exciting time to choose to visit Cannon Beach, tour the galleries and hear some great music.
