Calling all maritime artists!

The deadline for a juried art exhibit for the opening of the PacificMaritime & HeritageCenter has been extended to Friday, March 15.
Michael Gibbons, artist and curator of the Yaquina River Museum of Art, and the Lincoln County Historical Society have joined to conduct the juried exhibit for maritime-related art. Jury selections will be exhibited in the PacificMaritime & HeritageCenter when it opens June 2013.
The juried art exhibit will be just one section of the opening exhibit, “Ship to Shore: Objects of a Maritime Community,” which will feature a diversity of maritime objects from the local community ranging from commercial fishing gear to art.
In the juried art section, all artists are welcome to enter pieces done in all media, but the theme must be maritime-related. The artist must be willing to lend the piece to the Society for a year-long exhibit at the PacificMaritime & HeritageCenter. Artists are encouraged to donate or arrange for the gift of accepted art for the Society’s collection and use in future exhibits. Artist submitting the work must hold all rights to the works.
Digital images of up to six works should be submitted as jpegs on CD with a description of the work and the media used. Disks should be sent or delivered to Michael Gibbons at 140 NE Alder, Toledo or to the BurrowsHouseMuseum, 545 SW Ninth St., Newport. For more information, call 541-265-7509 or 541-336-2797 or e-mail coasthistory@newportnet.com or michaelgibbonsart@charter.net.
