Stormy Weather Arts Festival. Cannon Beach art galleries will shine a spotlight on some of the West’s most successful artists November 6-8, just like they have for over 30 years at Cannon Beach, Oregon’s Stormy Weather Arts Festival. With coronavirus restrictions, the 2020 festival will look different from other years and will feature only intimate, limited-attendance gallery events to assure the safety of festival attendees. Over the festival weekend, artists who create bronze sculpture, blown glass and original wall art in diverse styles will be in the galleries to, demonstrate their techniques or have their work showcased in special exhibits. There will be live musical performances with regional musicians at outdoor venues throughout the town on Saturday of the festival.
The Cannon Beach Gallery Group produces two art festivals that encompass the entire town, focusing on the 11 galleries. Spring Unveiling (May) brings dozen of artists to town who are showing their latest work. The event also includes music and gallery receptions. Plein Air & More (June) features artists working in a variety of media in town and on the beach. Event also includes music and receptions.
