A team of dedicated volunteers unpacked art on May 30 in the wee hours of the morning.
“All of this made possible within 24 hours with a lot of help from volunteer artists who worked tirelessly Just to name a few: Mary Burgess, Tom Willing, Jane McGeehan, Emily Miller, curator Sara Vickerman and driver Jeff Gage. Thank you to the City of Seaside for saving the parking spaces on Broadway for the caravan of deliveries as it was transported (by SUV’s one trip at a time from the airport hangar/warehouse).” D. Fairweather
“The Corvallis/OSU run of the Ode to the Tides art exhibit has been a success. Tina, the La Sells Stewart Gallery director said there has been a lot of traffic and excitement about the show and pieces sold. The show has now been installed in Seaside at Fairweather Gallery and Beach Books, where it is being promoted as part of the Seaside Art Walk with a harp concert. There will also be a lecture by Neal Maine (local naturalist and photographer) on June 13 at the Library from 6-8 PM.
Thank you all for your involvement in this project, as it is a great opportunity to get people excited about the conservation of our oceans and estuaries through your beautiful art work. Next to the ocean and estuaries themselves, you are the best ambassadors. We are expecting a great turnout of artists in Seaside Saturday for the opening. If you miss Art Walk, hopefully you can make it Seaside before the show closes at the end of June. We are planning lots of special events for later this summer when the show moves to Newport. We will keep you posted.”
