Three new shows at coastal art museum

COOS BAY - Washington artist Frank Gaffney is the featured maritime artist for the Coos Art Museum's 22nd annual Maritime Art Exhibition, which opens Friday in the Perkins Gallery at 235 Anderson Ave. and runs through Sept. 26.

Gaffney is a signature member and past president of The Puget Sound Group of Northwest painters and is a frequent participant in the museum's annual maritime art show.

The Coos Art Museum's exhibit is the official competition for the western United States region of the American Society of Marine Artists and is the oldest continuous competition on the West Coast.

The opening of the show coincides with the art museum's major fundraiser that takes place Friday, starting with a 5 p.m. social hour and silent auction preview followed by a "seafood extravaganza" dinner catered by the Coach House. Tickets are available at 541-267-3901, at a cost of $50 or $45 for members.

Two other exhibits also open Friday.

"Beach 'Seen' " features work by three artists that explore the barrier between land and sea. The show in the Uno E. Richter Atrium Gallery runs through Oct. 3 and features bronze sculptures by North Bend artist Ken Ayers, fish prints from Gold Beach artist Don Jenson and Brookings artist Valerie Tucker's paintings, sculptures and installations.

The Mabel Hansen Gallery hosts a traveling exhibit of contemporary Alaskan art curated by the Valdez Museum and Historical Archive, called "Communities, Disaster and Change," which opened originally to mark the 50th anniversary of the devastating earthquake that shook Alaska on March 27, 1964.

The 28 Alaska artists in the show submitted one artwork depicting the way their communities were affected by the quake and how they responded to the challenge. The show runs through Sept. 26.

Regular museum hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Admission is $5 for adults, $2 for students, military veterans and senior citizens and free to museum members.
