The Lincoln City Cultural Center has a tradition of honoring its member artists with a show during the height of the summer season so that visitors from near and far can see some of the works created by the talented local arts community.

The Summer Members’ Show is composed of new artwork exclusively done by LCCC members, and it showcases a wide variety of styles and mediums. This year the theme is “Green,” and the interpretation of the theme is left up to each artist to decide.

The opening reception for this new exhibit will be today (Friday), July 12, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The public is invited to come and meet the artists and chat with them about medium, process, color or just life in general.

To add to the fun, both the Beachstone Gallery at Artists Studio Association ( and the Pacific Artists Co-op Gallery ( will be having opening receptions on this same evening. People can easily walk between the three and absorb three times the artwork. The Beachstone Gallery’s summer show is titled “Lazy Daz,” and the Pacific Artists Co-op Gallery is celebrating 10 years of business. Both are at 620 NE Highway 101 in Lincoln City.

People can become a member of the Lincoln City Cultural Center by way of its website —, or by coming in to fill out the short membership form. Membership for a year is $35 for individuals and $60 for a family.
