Photos / Varied Perspectives: New art exhibit opens in Newport
“Varied Perspectives” – a new exhibition featuring the work of Yachats Arts Guild – will be on display in Newport Visual Arts Center’s Runyan Gallery Oct. 13 through Nov. 26, presented by Oregon Coast Council for the Arts.
An opening reception is planned from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 13. Artists will be on hand, and refreshments will be served.
The artist members of Yachats Arts Guild work in a wide variety of mediums – and that’s exactly the theme of their new exhibition. Illustration, glass work, collage, photography, oils, acrylics, watercolors... you name it, you will probably find it on display in the VAC's first floor gallery this fall. And while guild members may not all express their art in a similar form, they share a communal desire to (per their website) "come together to showcase the beauty and varied talents of the local artists along the Oregon Coast."
What began with a meeting of just a few artists in 2007 has blossomed into a guild that now boasts upwards of forty members. Their purpose? To promote and support the arts, provide local artists an opportunity to show and sell their work, expand artistic ability, and enrich the community through the arts.
"Their goals are in excellent alignment with those of the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts," Newport Visual Arts Center Director Chasse Davidson said. "We're excited to showcase the work of these talented local artists, and bring this beautifully eclectic show to Newport's Nye Beach."
Exhibits at Newport Visual Arts Center are free to the public and can be viewed most Wednesdays through Sundays, from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. The VAC is located at 777 NW Beach Drive in Newport.
