Astoria Visual Arts Gallery
Jul 27 – 28, 11am – 5pm
AVA, as it’s known, is a weekend gallery formed in 1989 for emerging and professional artists working in unusual or experimental media. There must be something in the rain in Astoria, since it’s been attracting artists to Oregon’s north coast for decades. In June AVA has an intaglio printing show, but it is deeply involved in the Astoria Open Studios Tour, which gives you carte blanche to poke around in over 40 local artists’ studios. From July 13 to August 4 work by Dave McMacken and Noel Thomas will sit alongside that of 45 other artists in the July Open Studios exhibit Meet the Makers.
