There will be, for the next two weeks, a spotlight show featuring the photography of JerriLynn Woolley, Donna McCoy and Artisan Jill Keck at the Yaquina Art Association Gallery at the foot of the Nye Beach Turnaround. JerriLynn Woolley loves being out doors and enjoying nature’s beauty. She is most happy when she can combine her love for nature with sharing it with family and friends through photography. Sunsets and sunrises are her favorite times of the day. Living on the Oregon Coast has opened up many opportunities for her photography.
Donna McCoy’s spotlight show is titled, “Wrack’d Photography”. Turning her macro lens to the plants, animals and things washed ashore in the wrack line —Donna says, “That line of stuff left by the out going tide is loaded with art!” She hopes that visitors to the gallery will be inspired to walk the wrack line and bring their camera. She also adds, “Oh and bring a trash bag for plastics.” Donna’s photography can also be seen at the Lincoln City Artist’s Co-op as well as at the Wave gallery in Yachats.
Jill Keck of Calise Soapworks will be displaying her award winning soap and unique jewelry. Most items are ocean inspired. “I love to create functional art with soap that brings a smile,” says Jill. Her soaps are not only beautiful, but formulated with skin loving ingredients. Her jewelry ranges from whimsical holiday themes to hammered metal with upcycled bottle glass that make great gifts.
