CANNON BEACH — Join artist Diane Kingzett for the reception of her show “Time Will Tell” at the Cannon Beach Gallery (1064 S. Hemlock St.) in midtown Cannon Beach 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 26.
Her oil paintings feature colorful abstract landscapes of Oregon. Kingzett has shown throughout the state; this will be her second time at the nonprofit Cannon Beach Arts Association.
The reception — which will feature live music, food and wine — is free and open to the public. The event is family friendly, and the exhibition will be on display through Sunday, Oct. 1.
“Landscapes emanate energy from structures, people, animals and spirits which have passed through the space,” Kingzett said. “Long after the physical scape has changed and nature has reclaimed its turf, we may still be compelled to objectify a scene, name it, and impose our own experience upon it in an attempt to prove that we belong, that we come from somewhere.”
The Arts Association will also be hosting local illustrator Dorota Haber-Lehigh, who will teach a workshop, titled “Ethnobotanical Sketchbooks,” 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 26. This workshop will be held at the Cannon Beach History Museum (1387 S. Spruce St.).
The cost is $45 for members, $65 for nonmembers. The cost of membership is $35 per year. To register for the workshop or get more information about the reception, call the gallery at 503-436-0744.
