Oregon Coast Council for the Arts Presents “Oregon Coast Art Talks,” a New 13-Week Online Series
Series to feature artist talks, panel discussions and studio tours
The Oregon Coast Council for the Arts (OCCA) announces a new 13-week online series of artist talks, panel discussions and studio tours. The “Oregon Coast Art Talks” program is being presented in conjunction with the “Oregon Coast Online Art Show,” which has been extended beyond its scheduled closing on Labor Day. Both programs have been developed by the OCCA and the Newport Visual Arts Center.
“Oregon Coast Art Talks” will kick off with an opening reception on Saturday, August 15 at 5:30pm, and then online events will be aired every Sunday, noon, from August 23 to November 15 (no Labor Day weekend event). Admission to the series and exhibition is free, though donations are accepted. All proceeds benefit the participating artists and OCCA.
Organized in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the “Oregon Coast Online Art Show” was developed as most galleries and art spaces are shuttered and artists are unable to present their work to a viewing public. The exhibit includes the work of over 160 contributing artists, exhibiting painting, sculpture, photography, mixed media wearable art works. The show remains open to all artists living on the Oregon coast, artists who have shown their work at the Newport Visual Arts Center or current members of the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts. The Oregon Coast Online Art Show went live on May 29.

Mr and Mrs Lincoln County, if you haven’t heard, officials of the Lincoln County School District have trashed their original plans for opening the new school year while the Covid-19 virus circles over our heads.
The district has decided that there will be only “Distance Learning” – learning from home. Nobody’s going to school where the Corona-19 virus can do some real damage. There will be contact between students and teachers but no face-to-face. Teachers will be able to communicate with parents and coordinate learning materials.
The whole process is rather complicated and parents should start learning how the schools will teach and the students will learn. Here’s the website to get every family going. https://lincoln.k12.or.us/enroll//
