Third Annual Word & Image project @ Hoffman Center for the Arts
Apr 7 all-day

Hoffman Center for the Arts opens submissions for the Third Annual Word & Image project, with a submission deadline of April 7.

Entries will be accepted March 1 through April 7, 2017 for the third annual Word & Image project, a summer exhibit at the Hoffman Center for the Arts pairing artists and writers to create original work, each in response to the other’s. 

Word & Image for Hoffman

  • Submission Guidelines

    Submission Guidelines

    Word & Image Submission Guidelines

    Submission Deadline Extended:  April 7, 2017

    Full Submission Rules:

    All work must be submitted electronically via the ‘submit’ button on the Word & Image page between March 1 and midnight on April 7, 2017.

    Writing guidelines

    Writers must submit three pieces for consideration. Maximum length for poetry is 30 lines, and the maximum length for prose is 250 words. (Yes, we know — this is not very many words!)  Our goal is to be able to pair the writing and art on the printed broadsides in a way that is readable and aesthetically pleasing. Excerpts from longer works are welcome. Previously published work is acceptable.

    Submissions must be a Word document, in 12 pt font and with one inch margins.

    Please submit all three entries in ONE FILE with page breaks separating the pieces.

    Please use the title of the first piece as the file name. Do not include your name and contact information in the document or file name. Judges read submissions blind to ensure their decisions are based on the work, not the person. The editorial team takes no responsibility for correcting spelling or grammar, so please proof your work before submission. Too many errors may disqualify the piece.

    In order to provide opportunities for new contributors, those who participated in both the 2015 and 2016 projects are not eligible to submit to this year’s project.

     

    Art guidelines

    Artists must submit digital representations of three separate pieces for consideration. These may be in any medium (including 3-dimensional) and may have been previously published or sold. Each must be submitted separately. Judges view submissions blind to ensure their decisions are based on the work, rather than the person.

    To ensure high quality reproduction, photographs (and photographs of art) should be in jpg or jpeg format, with at least 300 dpi in resolution; line drawings should be scanned at 300 dpi resolution.  Higher resolution is even better.

    In order to provide opportunities for new contributors, those who participated in both the 2015 and 2016 projects are not eligible to submit to this year’s project.
    Judges will be looking for a wide variety of subject matter, not limited to beach themes.

     

    Submission Process

    All work must be submitted electronically via the ‘submit’ button on the Word & Image page of the hoffmanblog.org, March 1-April 7. The system will prompt for submission category and title, allow uploads, and ask for a bio no longer than 50 words, which must include the author/artist’s connection to the north Oregon coast area.

    You will receive the following responses to your submissions: an automatic acknowledgement that your submission was received and another acknowledgement that your files are in good order or one describing corrections needed.

    A final notification of your submission’s status will be sent by May 1.

Hoffman

The submission deadline has been extended to April 7, 2017

Entries will be accepted March 1 through April 7, 2017 for the third annual Word & Image project, a summer exhibit at the Hoffman Center for the Arts pairing artists and writers to create original work, each in response to the other’s.  

Here’s how it works:  12 selected artists and writers will be randomly paired at a Hoffman Center gathering on June 2.  Each will be given printed copies of the other’s submitted work.  Then each writer and each artist will create new work in response to one of the three pieces submitted by their partner.  A writer might create a new poem in response to a watercolor, for example.  A photographer might make a new image in response to a prose piece.

The artwork will be exhibited at a Hoffman Center event on August 26, where the writers will also read their new work.  The paired work will be printed on broadsides which will hang in the HCA gallery as well as published in a book.  Both will be available for sale.

The Hoffman Center’s Word & Image project is open to artists and writers who live on the north Oregon coast or have a strong connection to the area. In order to provide opportunities for new contributors, those who participated in both the 2015 and 2016 projects are not eligible to submit to this year’s project.

Here’s one of our favorites:  Debra Simmons submitted her poem “Good Intentions” and Karen Gale painted “Sunday Dinner” in response.

Hoffman

Key Dates:

March 1 – April 7: Initial submissions due from writers and artists

May 1: Participants announced

June 2: Selected artists and writers paired at a kick-off gathering

July 15: New (response) work for the Word & Image exhibit due from each artist and writer

August 26:  Opening reception and reading at the Hoffman Center for the Arts

Participants will be selected by a judging team of past participants.

Don Colley

Don Colley:  Practice. It must be done. I was a weekly regular at area venues for drawing from life. For various reasons, I haven’t pursued the practice of drawing nude figures from life and it shows in some recent sketches. This 25 minute ink drawing in one of my many ledger books, was executed at a time when I was as relaxed while drawing as the model was during the pose. When figures are bundled in clothes the challenge is to indicate a figure beneath the cloth, and I always feel a little leeway in proportions so I tend to attack the page with more abandon. When the clothes come off, if I haven’t been drawing regularly I typically fret the proportions and contour accuracy and the drawings sometimes suffer from self consciousness with evident stiffness. I thought this would be a winter where I would concentrate on life drawing but……..things don’t always work out as planed.

Don Colley: Went to Salt Lake City for my first time in the state of Utah besides the one time I changed planes in the SLC airport. What a location, jeez! I knew it would be dramatic from having flown over it and from images and conversations with former residents but I was jazzed to be there. Had Saturday off so I rented a car with a friend and we drove 2 hours plus north to see Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty. And while There are other state capitols that rival Utah’s for grandeur, I have personal favorites, the Capitol buildings in Austin, Texas, Madison, Wisconsin, Lincoln, Nebraska, and Denver, Colorado, the setting of Utah’s Capitol is as breath taking as any to be found.

Shaping Your Watercolors ~ Carolyn Gates @ The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita
Jun 10 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will host a two-day “Shaping Your Watercolors : Composition, Color & Concepts for Beginners” class Saturday, June 10 and Sunday, June 11, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Led by artist Carolyn Gates of Eugene, students will learn basic concepts of creating compositions, color and color mixing, and painting techniques.

The concepts will be applied to painting from life and painting from photographs. The class is designed for adults 18 and older, beginning level. Some drawing skills are preferred, but not necessary.

Gates studied watercolor with Satoko Matouji at Lane Community College in Eugene as well as with premier watercolorists Carol Carter and Judy Morris.

She has won numerous commissions to paint in watercolor and colored pencil. Gates has had several shows around Oregon and has taught a beginning watercolor class at The Hoffman before. She says she enjoys helping people find their own voice of expression by sharing concepts that are fundamental to producing strong paintings.

“I investigate beauty, shape and color and in doing so, hope to uncover the interplay between the ordinary and the extraordinary.”

Gates lives with her husband and their cat, Nibbles. She is a member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon. For more information and to view her work, go to her website at www.cmgates.com.

Tuition will be $100, with an additional $4 materials fee for paper.

The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will host a two-day “Shaping Your Watercolors : Composition, Color & Concepts for Beginners” class Saturday, June 10 and Sunday, June 11, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Led by artist Carolyn Gates of Eugene, students will learn basic concepts of creating compositions, color and color mixing, and painting techniques.

The concepts will be applied to painting from life and painting from photographs. The class is designed for adults 18 and older, beginning level. Some drawing skills are preferred, but not necessary.

Gates studied watercolor with Satoko Matouji at Lane Community College in Eugene as well as with premier watercolorists Carol Carter and Judy Morris.

She has won numerous commissions to paint in watercolor and colored pencil. Gates has had several shows around Oregon and has taught a beginning watercolor class at The Hoffman before. She says she enjoys helping people find their own voice of expression by sharing concepts that are fundamental to producing strong paintings.

“I investigate beauty, shape and color and in doing so, hope to uncover the interplay between the ordinary and the extraordinary.”

Gates lives with her husband and their cat, Nibbles. She is a member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon. For more information and to view her work, go to her website at www.cmgates.com.

Tuition will be $100, with an additional $4 materials fee for paper.

Strengthen Your Paintings Class offered on July 8-9, 2017 @ The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita
Jun 11 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Strengthen Your Paintings Class offered on July 8-9, 2017

HoffmanThe Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will offer a two-day “Strengthen Your Paintings: The Foundation of Composition and Value” workshop the weekend of July 8-9, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

Led by Eugene-based Carolyn Gates, a frequent Hoffman Center instructor, the class is designed for students age 18 and up. Beginning level is fine. Some drawing skills preferred, but not necessary.

Tuition for the workshop will be $100, with a possible materials fee. The class will be limited to 10 students.

“Strengthen Your Paintings” will focus on concepts that are foundational to the art. “Day 1 will cover the elements of good composition. These are the bones of any painting,” said Gates. “Day 2 will explore value, the lights and darks, which are the muscle behind what makes a painting really work.”

“This class will include both lecture and hands on application of the concepts,” she added. “It is geared to the beginning student who wants to delve a little deeper. Examples and demonstrations will emphasize watercolor, but other mediums can also benefit from this class.”

Gates studied studio art at Mira Costa College in Oceanside, Calif., and watercolor painting at Lane Community College in Eugene, Ore. She won a commission in 2004 to paint the Stations of the Cross for a permanent installation at St. Bede’s Episcopal Church outside Portland.

She has been awarded several private commissions in watercolor and colored pencil and is a member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon. Interested persons can register for “Strengthen Your Paintings” at the Hoffman Center for the Arts blog (http://hoffmanblog.org/ ). Deadline for registration is Saturday, June 24.

Landscapes as Perception @ Cannon Beach Gallery
Jun 17 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Join the Cannon Beach Arts Association for an opening reception of the Landscapes as Perception show, on Saturday, June 17th, 2017 from 6 – 8 pm at the Cannon Beach Gallery located at 1064 S. Hemlock St. The exhibit will explore landscapes from three artists: Sidonie Caron, Christopher Perry, and J. Scott Wilson which will be on display from June 14 to July 16th. Guests are encouraged to attend the artist talk on Sunday, June 18th, starting at 11 am, also located at the gallery.

The exhibit features three distinct landscape styles and mediums interpreting the horizon, time, and space in unique ways. All three artists approach the landscape in way that honors the Oregon coast, with expansive perspectives that draw the viewer into the deep space where sea and air meet. The color and texture of the show will please all.

unnamedLandscapes
Left to right, Caron, Perry, Wilson.

Caron has previously shown at the Gallery and works largely in oils. Her work hints at Fauvism in that it captures the vibrant colors of the land and sea at dusk. Perry works in both oil and kiln glass and is a new artist at the Association. His abstract kiln-glass work allows the audience to interpret the moment in time which the landscape is depicting. Wilson is a local artist and owns Polaris Gallery in Manzanita. Working in oil on canvas, his landscapes perfectly capture the height of the sky as the storms wait patiently to roll in.

The opening is family friendly and there will be complimentary refreshments served thanks to Cannon Beach Fresh Foods, the Wine Shack, and Bald Eagle Coffee. The show is generously sponsored by the Cannon Beach Hotel.

Marga Stanley at Seaside First Saturday Art Walk @ Fairweather House and Gallery
Oct 7 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Foghorn Leghorn by Marga.

My art training comes from watching and experimenting and then doing it all over again, exposing a little more of me, Marga, with every attempt.

With each coat of paint, whether it’s watercolors, gouache, acrylics and oil comes depth and motion…it’s exciting and satisfying to see my work evolve from one layer to the next. I love using odd tools to paint with….for instance, the main images on my mini whimsy collection, were painted with a toothpick (I couldn’t find a small enough pallet knife).

I love the movement of things… whether it’s the hair or feather on a bird’s head or the drooping of a flower’s leaf…I want to make my painting live and breathe.

While living in the Caribbean I founded an annual fine arts fair, featuring over 20 very talented and diverse artists.

I draw on a regular basis with an exceptional group of local artists and am one of the founding members of Tempo Gallery, an arts collective, in Astoria.

My art has been shown in Canada, British West Indies, and the US, with collectors in OR, NY, NJ, MO, CA, FL, WA and Canada and Japan.– Hugs, Marga.

SAVE THE DATE AND TIME!

Celebrating 13 years in 2017, the next Seaside First Saturday Art Walk, will be held on October 7, 5-7: pm.

Q: What is the WCNC, you ask?

A: Wildlife Center of the North Coast (WCNC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit Oregon corporation, that specializes in wildlife rehabilitation of resident and migratory birds, mammals and other wild creatures naturally occurring in Oregon.

WCNC provides primary services to communities along 167 miles of coastline in Oregon and southwest Washington offering humane care and professional medical treatment to sick, injured, orphaned and displaced native wildlife with the goal of releasing healthy wild animals back into their appropriate habitat; offers quality conservation + environmental education programs concerning local wildlife, their ecosystems, and the human impact on these systems and individuals.
