The Cannon Beach Gallery Group is presenting the 9th Annual Plein Air & More festival. Scheduled for June 23-25, the event will feature nearly 50 artists creating art on location throughout the town and on the beach Friday, Saturday and Sunday. MHAO artist Valerie Barbeau will be participating the 24th and 25th - get out there and support her while enjoying what National Geographic has listed as "One of the most Beautiful Places in the World"!
Artists from 30 states and seven different countries submitted work to the 77th Annual Northwest Watercolor Society's International Open Exhibition, making competition fierce and our Mt. Hood Art Online family all the more proud of Beth Verheyden's win! Beth's "Dedication" brought home the Daniel Smith Artists' Materials Patron Award and 6th place overall - way to go, Beth!
"Among all the images submitted, I recognized many paintings that were created with confident brush marks, a testament to the artists' dedication to this difficult medium and years of practice. A large number of submissions also captivated me with a variety of techniques that the artists demonstrated so creatively on paper. To make final selections, I looked for a mastery of technical skills, a strong composition, originality, and perhaps more importantly, how the artist communicated their emotion through their unique expression. I especially appreciated the work done by those who took risks rather than playing it safe."

The RED Show
The word RED, and the color RED invoke intense responses in most people. We have chosen this theme to inspire your artistic interpretation of RED. The color red stands out. It is used to get our attention. It can be emotional. It is so
much more than just a color. Here are just a few common phrases using red:
● Red carpet treatment ● Red flag
● Caught red-handed ● In the red
● Seeing red ● Paint the town red
● Red letter day ● Red tape
Red is the highest arc of the rainbow.
Red is the first color you lose sight of at twilight.
The longest wavelength of light is red.
