New Show At Newport Visual Arts Center

Newport Visual Arts Center Show, Upstairs Gallery
“The Published Word: Literary Art of Lincoln County”
January 22 - February 27, 2010
Reception:  Friday, February 5th, 4-7 pm


Check out this show of diverse literary talent in Lincoln County.  More than 50 authors and 100 books are on display.  Most of the books will be available for sale at the gallery.  A visitor handout will provide a list of authors, books, and sales information.  Readings will be scheduled during the month of February [click here to check dates posted on the VAC website].  The Newport VAC is open Tuesday through Sunday from noon to 4 pm.

Two artists books by Jackie Niemi are included in the show, and are entitled, “Historic Voices of Beaver Creek” (excerpts of oral histories of Beaver Creek pioneers), and “Living on Lattes: Drawing in Cafes” (drawings & collage from cafes around the Northwest).  Both books are printed on one sheet of paper and are cut & folded in such a way as to make a small eight-page book.  Each book sells for $5.00.  In addition to the show, these books are available at Canyon Way Bookstore, the 9th Street Gallery, and the historic book at the Oregon Coast History Center Museum Bookstore.
