A tradition in Cannon Beach, Sandcastle weekend attracts thousands of visitors and locals, who come to build fanciful creations or just watch the fun.
The contest includes division ranging from Masters, who create amazing sculptures, to groups and children ready for creative fun in the sand.
Plein air is a term derived from the French expression “en plein air”, meaning “in the open air” and specifically refers to the act of painting outdoors. Cannon Beach’s popular “Plein Air & More” is a three day event which includes a Friday night “meet & greet” with the participating artists and gallery owners, along with a collaborative show of art work. On Saturday and Sunday, more than fifty artists, represented by Cannon Beach’s art galleries will be creating works of art on location throughout town and on the beach. Many will work in the traditional method of plein-aire painting, while others will sculpt, create and photograph in their own unique styles. Individual galleries display the finished works along with hosting receptions for the artists Saturday and Sunday.
