Seal Twist installed at The Village, Cannon Beach, Oregon

At the end of February we installed the Seal Twist at "The Village" a newly renovated area on the Main Street of Cannon Beach, Oregon. Here are a few photos and the press release written by Joyce Lincoln of the Northwest By Northwest Gallery, who represents us in Cannon Beach. As long as we're taking about the town, we would like to thank the Tolovana Inn for their continuing support of the arts. They have been very generous to us in our many trips to our favorite business destination.

Bronze sculptor Georgia Gerber is pictured with "Seal Twist" at The Village in downtown Cannon Beach. Believing public art transforms public spaces, the newly remodeled village center makes a commitment to Public Art creating an inviting courtyard gathering place for visitors in a village environment. This is Georgia Gerber's second public sculpture in Cannon Beach. She is the winner of the 2010 Sculpture Without Walls public choice vote for her Tufted Puffins. She is known for Rachel the Pike Place Pig & twenty six sculptures depicting Oregon Wildlife in downtown Portland's Pioneer Courthouse Square. Georgia Gerber is represented by Northwest By Northwest Gallery in Cannon Beach. This installation of public art marks one more step in the remodeling process of  The Village. Anchor businesses include Cannon Beach Treasure Co., Coastal Yarns & Seasons Cafe with a new "surprise" business opening soon.
