Saturday and Sunday saw Nestucca Valley Artisans (NVA) host their 26th annual art show located at the Kiawanda Community Center in Pacific City.
They had 20 artists, all part of NVA, presenting and selling their work. Artwork ranged from glasswork and pottery to acrylic and watercolor paintings. There were also artists selling hand made rugs and quilts.
NVA also held a raffle for several pieces of work donated by the artists at the art show. The proceeds from the raffle go to Community Art Project (CAP), a local organization promoting community involvement in the arts.
CAP was founded in 1988. Their mission is to create environments that enable people to freely explore healthy avenues of learning and expression in the arts. In 2002 they received a grant and were able to initiate its Art Literacy Program at Nestucca Valley Elementary School. In 2005 they were then able to open a second program at Garibaldi grade school.
