Fish and Fishing have been key to life on the Oregon Coast. Artists in this competition were challenged to submit works on these themes. From 182 submissions the jurors have selected 70 works for display. Works in many media are on view and demonstrate the broadest range of interpretations of the theme. Also, the Coquille Tribe and Confederated Tribes of the Coos, Lower Umpqua, and Siuslaw have generously provided items reflecting the long tradition of fishing on the Coast.
Here is a few of these great pieces from this exciting exhibition, I wouldn't miss it if I lived close by, but Denmark is very far away so I have to settle with the web-version.
