Yellow Radio Class – September 17, 2022, 11 am – 1 pm

Submitted By: – Click to email about this post

You must be located in the Nehalem Bay region to sign up for this class.

Yellow Radio program is neighbors using small walkie-talkie type radios to communicate locally within their neighborhoods. Yellow Radios will allow neighbors to communicate about news, needs, and available local resources.

Communication is one of the most important components of emergency preparedness and response. In many emergencies, especially a major earthquake and tsunami like the anticipated Cascadia Subduction Zone event, usual communication pathways like landlines, cell phones, and the internet will be unavailable.

Register for a Yellow Radio class where you will learn how to operate your radio and communicate effectively in your neighborhood. Classes are also a great way to refresh your skills.

Witnessing what is arising and passing through us…

the joys and sorrows and inspirations…

Seeing clearly and allowing space for the pain in ourselves…and others.

Developing kindness as the capacity to feel and offer what is needed.

3 Leg Torso formed in 1996 as a violin, cello and accordion trio with the mission of creating modern chamber music for their unique instrumentation.

Over the following years, the ensemble, now a quartet, have been performing original compositions based on an eclectic mix of chamber music, tango, klezmer, Latin, and Roma (Gypsy) music.

As principal composers, founding members Béla R. Balogh (violin, trumpet, octave mandolin) and Courtney Von Drehle (accordion, saxophone) provide the core of 3 Leg Torso’s sound. They will be joined by unique musicians T.J.Arko and Bill Athens.

3 Leg Torso’s international reputation includes composing music for a United Nations documentary in Thailand, recording music for Deutsche Komtel in Germany and providing theme music for a Bosnian television series.

This will be their long awaited second appearance at NCRD.
3 Leg Torso is a great show for the family!
Children under 12 will be admitted for free!

Emerging from the Deep: Artist Reception!

Submitted By: – Click to email about this post
The Cannon Beach Gallery invites you to our “Emerging from the Deep” artist reception. Saturday August 6 from 4:30 – 6:30PM. Meet the artists, enjoy refreshments, and view the work.This exhibit will be on view July 27 – August 28, 2022

About the Artists:

Pam Greene:

My daily life looks west to the Pacific. The background roar is a soundtrack of increasing and decreasing volume in step with the magnitude of tidal force. These paintings hold within them my experiences as an artist on the edge of the ocean.

The arrival and retreat of the sea is as predictable as clockwork, and yet unknowable in final form. The hypnotic shoreward surge rearranges itself into sets, no two ever the same.

There are days with green and blue waves, (more than a few) gray days, aqua and mint days, and precious, spectacular days of turquoise, emerald, sapphire and gold. There are days when the depths are concealed by reflections of the sky above, and days of transparency.

The waves leave behind a sculpted landscape of quiet pools, windows into the world of mysterious life below.

Each day the shoreline is restored, and for those who love the ocean, we are restored as well.

With an MFA in art and design from Stanford, and an undergraduate degree in botany, I am a perpetual observer of nature’s inspiring forms. I learned to paint in oils in the early 70’s, and have been painting ever since. In 1988 I moved to Oregon, where my visual perceptions were further shaped by a 30-year career of shoe design and innovation at Nike. I’ve been painting Central Oregon and the Oregon Coast professionally since 1994.

As an innovator, I approach each painting as something of an experiment. I like to be surprised as the composition emerges, and create balance with distilled, delineated shapes using brushstrokes aiming to capture nature’s spontaneity. The resulting pieces have a graphic quality with influences from my many years of travel to East Asia, and study of East Asian art.

My work is represented in private collections nationally and internationally, and available through the Portland Art Museum’s Rental Sales gallery.

MJ Anderson:

I create sculpture in collaboration with marble, carving a material that once was alive under the sea. Ancient coral reefs and bones from ocean creatures accumulated over millennia on the bottom of changing seas. With geologic shifts and the weight of time, these deposits were highly compressed under extreme heat and pressure and thrust upwards into marble mountains. The quarrying process cuts open these mountains to expose the history of our planet. My marble is from Carrara, Italy – where I have worked for 40 years, bringing sculptures to fruition in my studios both in Carrara and on the Oregon Coast.

Garden Tea & Lecture with Doug Kenck-Crispin

Garden Tea with Beaver Tales and Treasure Trails Lecture
To Benefit Cannon Beach History Center & Museum

Cannon Beach, OR – Doug Kenck-Crispin of Kick Ass Oregon History podcast fame enjoys finding quirky, under-represented and not oft-told tales from Oregon’s past. He has travelled the extreme four corners of Oregon, and many of the roads in between, seeking authentic and weird stories of the Beaver State. He will share his stories of Oregon’s Beaver Money and tales of legendary treasures from actual archival maps. Audience members will receive copies of these maps. Doug Kenck-Crispin, his name a result of his “hippie parents”, says this “may be the only history lecture where an audience member could end up stinking, filthy rich”. The filthy rich part depends, of course, on using the maps to find the elusive treasures.

While there is no guarantee of riches, the Garden Tea and Lecture promises to be informative and delicious featuring teas donated by North Fork 53 Communitea Wellness, sweet treats donated by Cannon Beach Bakery and savory tea sandwiches creations. Join fellow history buffs at the Chamber Hall on Sunday, September 11 at 11:00am. The lecture and tea are part of a larger weekend of festivities including the Opening Night Benefit Bash at the museum on Friday evening featuring a splendid Silent Auction and the Cottage & Garden Tour itself. The tour this year, which features the most cottages ever, takes place amidst the Presidential Streets of Cannon Beach on Saturday, September 10 from 12noon to 5pm.

The Cannon Beach Cottage & Garden Tour tickets, which are $40.00 will not sell out and are available the day of the tour. The tickets for the Garden Tea & Lecture have historically sold out, so buy early. Doug Kenck-Crispin, whose writings have appeared in The Oregonian, Portland Monthly, Willamette Week, Street Roots and the Portland Mercury, is an entertaining speaker you will not want to miss. Tickets for the lecture and tea are $25.00 and the proceeds from the entire weekend go to benefit the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum.

The Cannon Beach History Center & Museum is a private not-for-profit organization that preserves and shares the history of the Cannon Beach and Arch Cape area. The museum is alive and well thanks to the many sponsors, supporters, volunteers, members, and donors that are coming together to make the 2022 Cottage & Garden Tour weekend a great success.
