Other than “talented” the word that best describes the people that keep the plates spinning at the Artists’ Co-op Gallery and the Beachstone Gallery in Lincoln City is “busy.” In October, this community of artists will be presenting a show with the theme “Art, Music, & Wine,” which will include work by over 50 artists.
A kick-off reception will be held Friday, Oct. 13, featuring demonstrations by Laren Wooley (photography) and Linda Cline (jewelry) and introducing new artists Sarah Bolerjack (engraving) and Laurie Carlson (oil painting). Visitors can also greet returning artists, Dan and Beth Anderson. Instructors for Artists’ Studio Association classes will have work on display and will be registering students.
Meet the artists and enjoy the creativity along with light food and beverage from 5 to 7 pm. Both galleries are located at 620 NE Hwy 101 in Lincoln City. The show will continue until January 1. Parking is available at the back of the building. For more information, check websites: asaart.net or pacificartco-op.com.
Bill Cary is Artists’ Studio Association’s featured artist during October at the Beachstone Gallery. An active member of ASA, Cary lives in Pacific City. He paints in watercolor and acrylics and has exhibited his work in a variety of local galleries and venues.
“I do most of my work from observation as well as photo references, and am lucky to live on the Oregon coast where there is no shortage of inspiration,” Cary said. “The constantly changing seascape, the capes CAry describes his art as representational. “I do not strive for realism,” he said. “I like to choose my subject matter and then play with the different ways that it might be rendered. The results sometimes surprise me and that’s the fun of it. I hope you enjoy my work, it is a pleasure to create and I am always thrilled when a piece I love finds its way into someone else’s home for them to enjoy. “
Beachstone Gallery is located at 620 NE Hwy 101, adjoining the Artists’ Co-op Gallery, and is open every day from 10 am till 5 pm. Parking is at the rear of the building.
