6th Annual Plein Air & More Weekend
in June Was a Sizzling Success

Cannon Beach’s popular “Plein Air & More” three day event included a Friday night “meet & greet” with the participating artists and gallery owners, along with a collaborative show of art work. On Saturday and Sunday, more than fifty artists, represented by Cannon Beach’s art galleries creatied works of art on location throughout town and on the beach. Many work in the traditional method of plein-aire painting, while others will sculpt, create and photograph in their own unique styles. Individual galleries displayed the finished works along with hosted receptions for the artists Saturday and Sunday.

Our Participating Artists

Janis Ellison - is drawn to the dramatic landscape of New Mexico and painted alongside her friends and mentors in the budding days of the early pastel painters of this century. Her love of nature and the outdoors was a natural companion to her passion for painting plein air. Recent honors include having a painting selected for the Pastel 100 in Pastel Journal, in competition with 3000 other artists, and notification that she will be awarded “Master Circle” status by the International Assoc. of Pastel Societies.

Pat Lambrecht-Hould received her formal training at the University of Montana, Montana State University and Eastern Montana College. She majored in Applied Arts beginning as a sculptor, later expanding into oil painting and has spent the last 25 years working in watercolor and acrylics. Pat now works exclusively in mixed media often using vibrant colors and layers of texture. Her work is done on a gold leafed surface using the leaf as a reflected light source. “The work is experimental.”

Sally O’Neill has always been involved in the arts–painting, drawing and music. After working primarily in watercolor beginning in the 80′s, she went back to working solely in oils in 1998, and knew this was the perfect medium for expressing her obsession with light, color and atmosphere. She is both a plein air and studio artist, and won the “People’s Choice” award at Plein Air & More 2013
