We’re taking the strongest parts from the former Plein Air & More Arts Festival and combine them into this environmentally themed event. Artists flock to this region for it’s awe-inspiring natural beauty- this brand new art festival showcases artistic inspirations that raise awareness of the pristine coastal region through an appreciation of the arts. The Cannon Beach Gallery Group invites artists who represent the majestic ocean environment in their artworks, as well as artists who use their visual expressions to encourage preservation of the beaches, forests and waterways that make Cannon Beach such a unique and attractive location for visitors. Collaborating with local non-profits, a portion of festival proceeds will assist environmental organizations in maintaining protection of Oregon’s North Coast region.
