SEASIDE — Celebrating 13 years in 2017, the next Seaside First Saturday Art Walk will be held 5 to 7 p.m. Dec. 2.

Visitors meet artists, check out original art, sip wine and snag appetizers by favorite restaurants or personal chefs, view artist demonstrations and, oftentimes, enjoy live music performances.

The free event is all about seeing and selling art in the galleries and boutiques located between Holladay Drive and Broadway Street in the historic Gilbert District of downtown Seaside. Complimentary parking for the historic Gilbert District is on the corner of Holladay Drive and Oceanway Street.

SunRose Gallery

606 Broadway St.

We always close out the year with the ever-popular Patty Thurlby as our featured artist with her whimsical upcycled mixed-media creations. This year her theme is “Merry Mermaids,” featuring mermaid tree-toppers, statues, ornaments and a new line of earrings she calls “The Mermaid in Me.” She will also have music paper tabletop Christmas trees, wall decor and driftwood hanging lamps, all made with locally found ephemera.

We also have new inspirational wall shrines by Leslie Gibbons, amazing wool sculpture wall art by Robin Montero, and new broken china art and jewelry by SunRose owner/artist Cathy Tippin.

Fairweather House and Gallery

612 Broadway St.

Opening reception for “Seek,” an art exhibition.

As the hectic holiday season approaches, we seek beauty in nature, in its solitude and silence, as well as search for time with family and friends. “Seek” captures the appreciation for the arts. Seek, inquire, search for, pursue, long for, wish for, desire, look for, expect from.

Featuring Duane Bolster, master harp builder and his harp petting zoo. For nearly 50 years, he worked in operating rooms and intensive care units. He witnessed the wonderful healing and soothing effects that harp music had on the children he cared for, and on their parents. He won The Hero award from CCA “For Creating a Magnificent Harp for the Music Program.”

In addition, Oregon artist Renee Rowe, inspired by the beauty of nature, produces abstract art by following her heart. For the artist, celebrating art and life are inseparable.

Cherished holiday music by Shirley 88. Frosted sugar cookies, warm gingerbread, sparkling sippers and gifts for every art patron.

And at 6 p.m., Seaside/Gearhart naturalist, biologist and wildlife photographer Neal Maine will speak about the local habitat.

Art-in-the-Loft Gallery at Beach Books

616 Broadway St.

A group show, “Holiday Dream Works,” by artists who have exhibited in our gallery over the past year. Each artist will be offering up small, affordable art pieces that will make perfect holiday gifts. So, if you are on the lookout for a creative piece of art for that special someone at reasonable prices, be sure to check out the Art-in-the-Loft Gallery during December and January. There will be a variety of small, creative wonders to view and purchase, as well as lots of art prints and greeting cards to buy and take home. It is our way of saying “Happy (affordable) Holidays.”

In addition, Dough Dough Bakery and Beach Books will have a pre-Art Walk event 3 to 5 p.m. Cheryl Wakerhauser, owner of Pix Patisserie in Portland and author of “Modern French Pastry,” will do a demonstration and book signing.
