Artist Programs And Support

Juried Shows – The Cannon Beach Gallery has three to four juried shows each year. A call for work notice is sent out to a mailing list of artists via email. Any interested artist can be placed on the email list. Work must be recent (within 2 years) and be for sale. Juried group shows are open to all artists.

Featured Exhibits – Artists are invited to be featured at the Gallery for solo, group and themed exhibits. A committee oversees the selection of artists to be featured. Any interested artist(s) can submit a proposal to be featured. Artists may also make a proposal to be featured in the Gallery. A proposal should include digital images of artwork and a written description of what the artist is proposing to exhibit, along with any other materials that may help the Gallery Committee make selections. The Committee reviews artist’s packets as they are received throughout the year. Featured Artists can find a Consignment Form here: Consignment Agreement 2019

Retail Gallery – Artists are invited to submit work for our retail space. The Program Director oversees the selection of artists to be featured. Any interested artist(s) should bring in works to be displayed. Work must be labeled with the artist name, the title and medium of the work, and the price. All artists must live or work regularly within northwest Oregon or southwest Washington, or have a strong connection to Cannon Beach. Once work is selected artists must complete an inventory form and consignment form, found here: Consignment Agreement 2019

Artist Grant – The CBAA, in conjunction with the City of Cannon Beach, provides artist grants to local artists, musicians, performers, or writers. This grant is intended to provide funding for an artist(s) to pursue a project of significance. Please email or call us for inquiries about specifics of this program. The Artist Grant History has a listing of past recipients and projects. Our most recent recipient is Scott Johnson.

Internship Program – The CBAA Internship Program had its inaugural year at the gallery in 2013. A college student was given the opportunity to work in the gallery during the summer months. The program allowed the recipient to enrich their personal arts experience while gaining real world experience in a commercial arts environment. It has been shown that college graduates who participate in an internship program gain the kind of real life work experience that employers are looking for in their employees. The program was a success for all involved and the CBAA is committed to providing such an experience for future interns. Email or call us for inquiries about specifics of this program.
