The group of over thirty quilters includes artists from southwestern Washington and as far south as Eugene. “Blue” features work from nine different artists from all over the Pacific Northwest. The exhibit is an exploration of the color and concept of blue. Blue is more than just a color on the spectrum between violet and green, it is the color of the clear sky, the sea, of clothing, cars, flowers, but more than that, it is a concept. What is blue to you?

As the group explains, “Conceptually, the word blue can inspire thoughts of a blue moon, the infinity of a blue sky, the darkest depths of the blues, and the foot-tapping beat of the blues music that engages our souls and soothes our hearts.” Don’t miss this innovative and fun show! This exhibit was sponsored by Center Diamond of Cannon Beach. Center Diamond has been selling fabric for over 20 years in Cannon Beach with a focus on contemporary batiks, brights, Asian, landscape/beach and modern fabrics. Look for their custom made Haystack Rock batik and Tufted Puffin fabric — available only at Center Diamond — along with a large selection of sewing supplies and notions.

The Cannon Beach History Center & Museum is open from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Wednesday through Monday, closed on Tuesday.
