Through January, the Hoffman Center Art Gallery will feature a show including a variety of art mediums inspired by white created by North Coast Artists.
This is the second annual “color” show in which we celebrate white — the combination of all wavelengths of visible light.
A wide community of artists from Tillamook to Astoria will participate. Creating… and enjoying… art is a way to stop and appreciate, most especially in this dark month of the year.

Show continues every Friday and Saturday from 3:00-5:00pm

Zoe Swain’s abstract minimalist flower paintings and Dmitri Swain’s narrative sculptural ceramics will be featured and available for purchase in the Hoffman Center for the Arts Gallery. The show opens Friday, November 3 from 3-5 and continues every Friday and Saturday from 3-5pm through Saturday, November 25. The gallery is free.
Dmitri and Zoe have created a body of visual and sculptural works that draw upon and explore man’s relationship to nature.
“Mysterious, engaging, and modern. The Swains have developed a body of intriguing works.”
The art should be inspired by the literary reference “Quoth the Raven – ‘Nevermore’” in some manner and can include up to two pieces of any two-dimensional medium.
Artists are welcome to sell their work, with a 30 percent commission to the Hoffman Center for the Arts.
Ready-to-hang art should be dropped off at the Hoffman Center between 10 a.m. and noon on Monday, October 30. The show will be hung that afternoon and will be among the art on display all November.
On November 20, author Ingrid Thoft will teach a workshop titled “Mastering Murder” and read from her latest thriller that evening, Duplicity.
Raku Pottery created by ceramic artists from the Hoffman Clay Studio will be featured and available for purchase at the Hoffman Center for the Arts Gallery located at 594 Laneda Ave in Manzanita. Show opens October 6, 2017 from 3-5 pm and continues every Friday and Saturday from 3-5pm through October 28.
Featuring the fruits of the Hoffman Center Clay Studio June and September Raku firings, Raku pottery is created by the thrilling process of subjecting red hot ceramics to smoke. Sometimes called a happy accident because of the unpredictable results, Raku is a unique and vibrant ceramic art form.
The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will host a showing of encaustic works — entitled “Earth. Water. Sky.” — by Washington artist Lara Blair throughout the month of October.
The show opens Friday, Oct. 6, with a special reception from 3 to 5 p.m. The works will remain up for viewing during regular Gallery Hours – Fridays and Saturdays, 3 to 5 p.m., — through October 28, plus anytime the Center is open for other events.
Blair is a photographer who discovered years ago that encaustic wax could enhance her photographs. After much experimenting, she realized that painting satellite views of the beach with encaustic medium was extremely fulfilling. This led to a studio filled with coastal creations done on birch panels and a career as an encaustic artist.
“Earth, water, and sky are the three essentials that inspire me to create art from a bird’s eye view,” said Blair. “I was always the child craning her neck to see the world from an airplane window. So I choose to take small pieces of this beauty, using wax, oil paint and various mediums, molding them into how I see the world — one piece at a time.”
Blair lives with her husband and two daughters on forested acres in Southwest Washington and enjoys teaching in the creative environment of a project-based Camas middle school.
