The dramatic cliffs and beaches of the Oregon coast are a natural inspiration for creativity. It’s not surprising that so many artists call this area home. Even if their artwork doesn’t take inspiration directly from the landscape, artists find the coastal community’s laid-back atmosphere and slower pace make it a great place to create.
Below we’ve listed some of the Cannon Beach galleries and artist groups. Most are clustered on or near Hemlock street. For a more complete list including individual artist galleries and studios, please visit Cannon-beach.net (click on “Galleries | Art”).
