Trail's end art association to hold 68th annual judged show


The Trail’s End Art Association’s (TEAA) 68th Annual Judged Show is open to all artists. This year’s show will take place from August 4 –August 31. According to Trail’s End President Jim Schoeffel, "We are the oldest art association on the North Oregon Coast. We were organized in 1950 to foster the creation of original fine art in all media, and to provide art education and enjoyment opportunities to the community. While we have new monthly shows of members’ art at the gallery throughout the year, our Annual Judged Show is open to non-member artists as well. This Annual Judged Show has gained in popularity each year, and we welcome all members of the surrounding communities to enter art.”

A reception is planned on Saturday, August 4 from 2-5 p.m. The Award Ceremony is scheduled for 3 p.m. This year’s prizes include $100 for “Best in Show,” and a $50 award for the “Mayor’s Award.” Prizes were also donated by McMenamin’s Gearhart Hotel and Dots ‘N Doodles Art Supply in Astoria.
