There are two grant opportunities available: * Artist in Residence (Up to 3) * Performance Artist Grants (Variable and Ongoing)

The Cannon Beach Arts Association would not be successful without the assistance of our many, wonderful docents. They are here to answer your questions about the art in the gallery, coming events, membership, and other questions you may have about CBAA. Docents work in the gallery, usually for 2.5 hours at a time, as often as they are able. Docents also may also assist at special events sponsored by CBAA. Docents who are artists may also have the opportunity to display their work in a special reserved space, which is referred to as the Docent Wall, for a month long exhibit of their work. Please feel free to approach them for assistance. If you are interested in becoming a Docent or volunteering, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator and Vice President Linda Gebhart at “email@example.com”
Gallery Docent Volunteer: Gallery docents work closely with our Program Director and Volunteer Coordinator in our retail and exhbition gallery. Docents provide information to visitors about the art and also work as sales associates. While we would love to have you volunteer in any capacity, because of the nature of this task we ask for individuls who can commit to a volunteering once month or more on a regular or semi-regular basis. If you have previously worked in a gallery or retail environment we waive this requirement. Docents get discounts on art work and we also throw special thank you events only open to our volunteers.
Workshop Docent Volunteer: Due to limited staffing resources, volunteers in the classroom space are an integral part of each workshops success. Art Instructors for CBAA workshops often request volunteers to help assist in the classroom. Help artists set and tear down class spaces, change water and brushes, or drop off supplies as needed. Don’t forget Docent Volunteers stay and take the class they assist in for free!
Summer Art Camp Volunteer: Art Instructors for CBAA’s annual Art Camp love having classroom volunteers to help assist 1 -2 day, 3 day, 5 day classes. Help artists pass out supplies and buddy up with our littles to encourage creativity for children ages 3+.
Music Festival Volunteer: Is music your passion? We’re looking for local musicians to participate in our 2019 Music Festival in Cannon Beach. We need people who are great with organizing, have previous festival experience, and are available for planning during the year and/or for the event in October. Volunteer musicians also receive preference during the lineup selection process.
The Cannon Beach Arts Association supports, funds, and enhances the arts and artists in Cannon Beach and the region through education, events, and exhibits.
Staffed primarily by volunteers, the Gallery features regional and local artists working in fine arts and crafts in nine curated shows each year. We provide opportunities for emerging and professional artists through our Juried Show Program, Artist Grant Program, as well as internship and scholarship opportunities for youth and adults. Our retail store showcases local jewelry, prints, pottery, and other work by local artists. We offer regular workshops and a summer art camp for children and adults.
