SALEM—Thanks to the Lincoln City Cultural Center, there is new art, created by coastal artists, on display at the State Capitol. Five coastal landscape photographs by local artists Vonelle Swanson and Ralph Elliott are on now displayed hanging in State Rep. David Gomberg’s outer office. Gomberg regularly hosts rotating art exhibitions when the Legislative Assembly is in session.
“The Oregon coast is blessed with incredible natural beauty. It is a pleasure to bring some of that indoors to share with folks as they go about their legislative business,” Gomberg said. “It is also a great opportunity to highlight and promote the prolific arts scene on the Oregon coast. The Lincoln City Cultural Center is an important creative venue in our community and I’m happy to help display these artistic contributions here at the Capitol,” he added.
Niki Price, executive director of the Lincoln City Cultural Center delivered and installed the pieces in the Capitol last week. Rep. Gomberg introduced Niki from the House floor.
The works to display were selected by gallery director Krista Eddy. The artwork is on display in Room 371 in the House office wing; the public is encouraged to stop by and enjoy them.
