Port of Bandon 2016 Call to Artists : Wind Whales II, from the 2015 Port of Bandon Boardwalk Art Show

Wind Whales II, by David Black, won first place in the People’s Choice category for the 2015 Port of Bandon Boardwalk Art Show on the theme Coastal Creatures.

The 2016 theme, “Slice of Life,” is a figure of speech coined by playwrights and applied to all art forms. Artists may explore scenes from everyday life, ordinary but memorable moments. Paint is the most common medium, but past shows have featured photography, collage and three dimensional works.

The show is sponsored by the Port of Bandon with the Bandon Professional Center. Contact port staff for more information, 541-347-3206.
