Oregon Coast Council for the Arts presents…
Oregon Coast Art Talks,” a New 13-Week Online Series

Series to feature artist talks, panel discussions and studio tours.

The Oregon Coast Council for the Arts (OCCA) announces a new 13-week online series of artist talks, panel discussions and studio tours. The “Oregon Coast Art Talks” program is being presented in conjunction with the “Oregon Coast Online Art Show,” which has been extended beyond its scheduled closing on Labor Day. Both programs have been developed by the OCCA and the Newport Visual Arts Center.

“Oregon Coast Art Talks” will kick off with an opening reception on Saturday, August 15 at 5:30pm, and then online events will be aired every Sunday, noon, from August 23 to November 15 (No Labor Day weekend event). Admission to the series and exhibition is free, though donations are accepted. All proceeds benefit the participating artists and OCCA.

Organized in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the “Oregon Coast Online Art Show” was developed as most galleries and art spaces are shuttered and artists are unable to present their work to a viewing public. The exhibit includes the work of over 160 contributing artists, exhibiting painting, sculpture, photography, mixed media wearable art works. The show remains open to all artists living on the Oregon coast, artists who have shown their work at the Newport Visual Arts Center or current members of the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts. The Oregon Coast Online Art Show went live on May 29.
