DONATE TO OCCA

Welcome to the Oregon Coast Online Art Show! As galleries, art centers and other creative spaces remain shuttered, artists from Brookings to Astoria, and points around Oregon, have come together to share their work and build a sense for creative community.

This online art show has been opened to any artist living on the Oregon coast, artists who have exhibited their work at the Newport Visual Arts Center or who are current members of the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts. Special thanks to the 157 artists currently participating–you represent 56 towns and 6 U.S. states, coastal creatives from every corner of the coast, and beyond.

The Oregon Coast Online Art Show is a benefit for the artists and the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts. Thank you for your support.

The Oregon Coast Online Art Show has been extended indefinitely beyond its initial Labor Day closing

If you would like to participate, the show remains open for submission. Email Tom Webb at twebb@coastarts.org or view the complete submission guidelines as a PDF.

Enjoy! Featured artists on this first gallery page will rotate throughout the show’s run. The remaining artists are listed in alphabetical order on the following gallery pages. (See how many artists you know or recognize.)

Rick Bartow - Newport (1946-2016)

Segyp, Kos Ket Saw Temp? (Yurok for "Coyote Where Are You Going?”) - Offset Litho/5 colors, Brandywine Workshop, 53.34” x 73.66”, Print 81/100, $1,800

Bio: Rick Bartow (Wiyot), born on the Oregon Coast, is one of Oregon’s most important contemporary artists.

Note: The text is in the Yurok language; it was once thought that the Mad River Band, from which Rick Bartow’s father is descended, was Yurok. Rick did a good deal of study of that language and incorporated it into much of his work in the form of titles or text. It’s subsequently been proven that they were in fact Wiyot, another small group that was geographically close but otherwise quite different in language and customs.
