Coos Art Museum continues its tradition of hosting an annual Maritime Art Exhibition on the scenic southern Oregon Coast. Coinciding with the opening of this annual maritime art exhibit is the Plein-Air/Paint out event for maritime painters. A day of painting outdoors on the Coos Bay; city docks, shipyards, boat basins, sandy beaches, rocky coves, rugged shorelines, dramatic cliffs, lush rain forests and cultured gardens that are all within 10 miles of the Coos Art Museum. The 25th Annual Maritime Art Exhibition is officially recognized and co-sponsored by the American Society of Marine Artists (ASMA).
Featured Artist: Pacific Northwest marine artist Jeffrey Hull was born in Portland and has been a resident of Cannon Beach, Oregon since 1972. He has earned his living from art since 1987 when he opened the Jeffrey Hull Gallery. Known for his ability to capture the beauty and moods of the places where water joins land, Hull controls the difficult medium of watercolor, often in very large paintings. He has been featured at the Kirsten Gallery in Seattle and various coastal galleries. In 2008 he was profiled on Oregon Art Beat. Hull is a Signature Member of the American Society of Maritime Artists. Hull is one of our best known Oregon coast artists and has been exhibiting at Coos Art Museum Annual Maritime Art Exhibitions since 2000. He has won numerous awards at these group exhibitions including most recently, People’s Choice awards in 2017 and 2015, Port Award in 2017 and Honorable Mention also in 2017. In 2017 Coos Art Museum acquired a Hull painting “Along the Path” through the Oregon Art Commission Art Acquisition program.
