|Art Quilt Invitational “Landscape of the Whale" at Cannon Beach History Center|
An art quilt exhibit entitled “Landscape of the Whale” will be on display at the Cannon Beach History Center from November 16, 2009 through April 15, 2010. The North Coast quilters invited to participate in this show: Kathryn Allison. Cathie Favret, Kathie Kerler, Carol Pierce, and Carol Weber, will display artwork directly inspired by the Greater Ecola Natural Area, a landscape stretching from the ridge tops east of Cannon Beach to the Pacific Ocean and designated the “Landscape of the Whale.”
A Cannon Beach group called the Ecola Creek Awareness Project (ECAP) is working with the City of Cannon Beach on a proposal to incorporate all of the natural resource lands around Cannon Beach into a comprehensive planning process, with a view to protecting and celebrating the unique ecosystem of Cannon Beach. Currently the vision is being called the Greater Ecola Plan with a concentration on creating a hub in downtown called the Cannon Beach Natural History Park. This park would incorporate an interpretive and transportation trail, conservation, and habitat enhancement around the lagoon and Little Pompey areas. Ecola Creek Awareness Project is a non-profit organization working to understand and protect the Ecola Creek ecosystem through education and exploration (visit ecolacreek.blogspot.com).
The Cannon Beach History Center is located at the corner of Spruce and Sunset Streets in Cannon Beach. For more information, call 503-436-9301, or visit cbhistory.org.
