For the first time, Oregon Coast Council for the Arts is presenting an exhibition exclusively for its members, who were each invited to submit up to two pieces for display.

The show will feature a fresh and eclectic mix of materials and styles, and all pieces will be original works of art, created within the last three years, that have not previously been exhibited at the VAC.

This exhibit will be on display in the Runyan Gallery at Newport Visual Arts Center from February 4 – March 25, with an opening reception on February 4th from 2pm – 5pm.

Artwork featured above is a closeup of a larger piece by OCCA Member Beth Kattleman.

While you’re at the VAC, don’t forget to join the conversation!

Through April of 2023, we’re measuring the impact of non-profit arts and cultural institutions in Lincoln County, as part of Americans for the Arts’ Arts & Economic Prosperity Study 6—the nation’s largest, most comprehensive study of the Arts & Culture sector…and you can help! When you attend this event, please complete an “AEP6” survey before you leave the building (and every time you attend an event or exhibit at the VAC). 3 minutes, 13 questions, totally anonymous. Look for the iPad located in the lobby, or ask a volunteer or staff member for a paper copy.
