The North Lincoln County Historical Museum will hold an opening reception for “Painting History,” a show that will be held in the museum’s new Anne Hall Gallery.

All are invited to this free reception from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 22. The museum is located at 4907 SW Highway 101 in Lincoln City.

Anne Hall, former executive director of the North Lincoln County Historical Museum, dedicated 20 years to making the museum what it is today. In honor of her and all of the work she has done over the years, her old office space has been converted into an art gallery. The gallery will show historic art from the museum’s collection and will later feature current local artists.

This first show, “Painting History,” will feature scenes of landscapes and buildings painted by historic artists, including Maude Wanker, Lincoln City’s most prestigious painter. Snacks and drinks will be provided. This gallery shows will rotate often, so people are encouraged to come and see “Painting History” while it’s up.

For more information, call the North Lincoln County Historical Museum at 541-996-6614. Museum hours are Wednesday through Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
