The annual show is an open air, public art display on the picturesque Bandon boardwalk. Submissions are accepted March 31 through May 19, 2017, at 12:00 p.m. Artwork will be displayed Memorial Day weekend through the second weekend in September.
Artists of all ages create original works on weatherproof boards. Acrylic or oil painting are the most common media, but past shows have featured photography, collage and three-dimensional works. Art boards and entry forms are available in Bandon at the Port of Bandon office, 390 1st St. SW; and Art by the Sea Gallery, 125 Chicago Ave. SE. A $10 entry fee covers the cost of art boards and prizes. Scholarship boards are available: inquire at the Port of Bandon.
Now in its 15th year, the boardwalk art show features works by amateur and professional artists living throughout southwestern Oregon. Prizes are awarded in youth and adult categories, along with people’s choice winners. Winning and honored works are featured in an encore exhibition at the Bandon Professional Center.
The theme “Blossoms, Butterflies and Bees,” celebrates native plants and the pollinators that help them grow. Artists may explore all aspects of native plant pollination. Insect pollinators include bees, butterflies, moths, wasps, ants and beetles. Birds, mammals and reptiles can also be pollinators, such as hummingbirds, bats, mice and lizards. Even the wind is a pollinator.
The show is sponsored by the Port of Bandon with the Bandon Professional Center. Contact port staff for more information, 541-347-3206, or visit portofbandon.com.
