The Oregon Coast Council for the Arts presents the exhibition, “The Other,” by Linda Ross from December 4 to January 29 in the Coastal Oregon Visual Artist Showcase (COVAS) at the Newport Visual Arts Center (777 NW Beach Dr.). The Brookings-based artist will present ceramic and mixed media figurines. The COVAS Showcase features artists rotating from Oregon’s seven coastal counties, and Ross will be representing Curry County. A public opening will be held on Saturday, January 8, noon to 4pm, with artists speaking at 2pm.
“I have always been an artist and I’ve worked with any medium I could get my hands on—paint, stone, wood, but I’ve stayed away from formal arts education,” says Linda Ross. “Art is the one place in my life where I get to do things my way!”
Linda Ross currently shows her work at the Brian Scott Gallery and Wright’s Art & Framing in Brookings. She has won two first-place awards for three-dimensional work in southern Oregon’s Azalea Art Festival.
The Newport Visual Arts Center adheres to all health and safety protocol provided by the Governor’s Office as well as the City of Newport. All visitors to the VAC are required to wear proper masks.
The Oregon Coast Council for the Arts manages the Newport Visual Arts Center and the Newport Performing Arts Center, and serves as the regional arts council for Oregon’s seven coastal counties.
