About the Arts in Cannon Beach

This picturesque Oregon community upholds a standing reputation as “one of the 100 best art towns in America.”

Start your art tour on Spruce Street and then circle back around Hemlock Street — you’ll happen upon more than a dozen art galleries, their wares running the gamut from fine art and craft to glassworks to bronze.

Cannon Beach is home to a gallery collective as well as an arts association with its own non-profit gallery dedicated to supporting both established and emerging artists. Watercolor, oil, glass and metal are among the mediums chosen by local working artists.

2012 Sand Castle Contest in Cannon Beach

The broad canvas of Cannon Beach, Oregon has tempted many an amateur sand castle architect, and once a year, sand sculptors gather here to celebrate their art.

You’re invited to join the festivities at the 2012 Cannon Beach Sand Castle Contest over the weekend of June 8 – 10, 2012. Spectators are welcome to watch the sculptors create not only castles, but also sea creatures, international landmarks, scenes from fairy tales, and other impressive expressions of creativity. You can try your own hand at shaping sand by signing up in one of seven sand-sculpting divisions, from “Sand Fleas” (open to anyone under age six) to “Sand Masters” (open by invitation to sculptors who have won awards in previous events).

Sculptors have about five hours to create their works, from 7am to noon on Saturday, June 9, during low tide. At noon, winners in each division will be announced, and by 6pm, high tide will erase the sculptures, so that Cannon Beach once again provides a blank canvas to aspiring sculptors.

Although the sand sculptures are the highlight of the weekend, visitors will find plenty of other activities to keep them busy. Read the rest of this entry »

Arch Cape Inn and Retreat is in the process of changing its mission statement and daily living activities in order to become eligible for green certification. A particular emphasis for us focuses on protecting and preserving the water quality of our local area.
In an effort to keep our water clean, water that surrounds us everywhere, we are making  changes in our habits. One such change that is easy to do is to use ordinary vinegar in a spray bottle as a surface cleaning agent.
