9th Annual Plein Air and More
June 23 - June 25
Cannon Beach has not only been named “One of the Best Art Towns in America,” but National Geographic has also listed it as “One of the Most Beautiful Places in the World.” So…what more could you ask for if you’re a plein air artist? That’s why they continue to come from around the world to capture the unique elements of this landscape “in the open air”. To celebrate this challenging artistic style and the work of the artists, the Cannon Beach Gallery Group is presenting the 8th Annual Plein Air & More festival. The festival will feature nearly 50 artists creating art on location throughout the town and on the beach Friday, Saturday and Sunday. During the week, leading up to the event, several nationally recognized artists will also be conducting workshops. Artists will also participate in a group show which opens on Friday morning at the Cannon Beach Chamber Building, and will be honored with a reception on Saturday evening. Galleries will have their own receptions for their artists on Friday evening.
