What could be more fun than spending a summer evening looking at newly created works of art? Whether you’re buying bronze, oil, acrylic, colored pencil, wood, metal, clay, glass, or jewelry, you can find it at affordable prices. Appetizers and beverages will be available free of charge.

Pacific Artists’ Co-op Gallery and ASA Beachstone Gallery will feature live art demonstrations by oil painters Josh Bryant and Catherine Hingson. Bryant is July’s Featured Artist. His unique style of portraiture is a must see. Catherine Hingson is known for her colorful impressionistic coastal landscapes.

The evening will be an opportunity to meet several local artists. The Chessman Gallery at Lincoln City Cultural Center will present the annual all-members exhibit, the theme being “Glow.” The doors of the Chessman Gallery will be open for this special reception.

Pacific Artists’ Co-op Gallery’s newest artists are oil painter Lucynda Cambell and encaustic artist Sara Hemmer. Many artists will also be present for a fun opportunity to discuss their new works, the gallery and art classes.

The Pacific Artists’ Co-op Gallery will also organize a fundraiser for Ukraine, Heart to Heart. Some of the artists created ‘sunflower’ artwork to donate proceeds to charity.

From contemporary to traditional, these art galleries have a lot to offer. The Pacific Artists’ Co-op Gallery is a group of over 25 juror artists working in a variety of media to create unique works of art. The Artist Studios Association is a community of artists dedicated to bringing arts education and enjoyment to students of all ages and backgrounds.
