Seaside - Gearhart

Seaside OregonSeaside has been the Oregon Coast's most popular ocean resort since the mid 1800s and is only 90 minutes from Portland, Oregon. The name "Seaside" came from a summer resort built by the railroad magnate Ben Holladay in the 1870s, Seaside House, located a mile south of the business center.

There is an annual volleyball tournament held every August that draws thousands of competitors and participants. Seaside is the destination for the Hood to Coast relay race and Portland-to-Coast relay walk, which also take place in August. The Seaside Three-Course Challenge, a cross country race, is also held at Fort Rilea, near Seaside, every fall, and is hosted by Seaside High School.

Every spring, Seaside hosts the Dorchester Conference, a convention of the Oregon Republican Party. This convention was founded in 1964, by then-state representative Bob Packwood as a forum for liberal Republicans, but within the next few years it attracted interest from other Republicans, and in the 1990s was dominated by members of the conservative branch of the party. Over the years the conference has attracted visits from presidential candidates, debates between Republican primary candidates, and discussions of wider political and social issues.

Seaside is home to the Seaside Aquarium a short walk from the Lewis & Clark monument.

The Miss Oregon Pageant, the official state finals to Miss America takes place annually at the Seaside Civic Center.

At the end of Broadway, Seaside's main street, lies "The Turnaround". It is a roundabout designed to turn traffic around when the street dead ends at the Pacific Ocean. In the middle of "The Turnaround" stands a statue of Lewis and Clark. The statue signifies that not only tourists "turn around" in Seaside, but that Lewis and Clark turned again for home, and their report to fellow Albemarle, Virginia resident Thomas Jefferson, when they reached the Pacific Ocean. "The Turnaround" is also one end of Seaside's 1.5-mile long ocean front Promenade is perfect for strollers, joggers and bike riders.

‘Simulacrums’ a collection of new works by John Payne
Seaside - Gearhart

John PayneOpening Reception:  Thursday, September 24, 2009 6-10pm
‘Simulacrums’ runs from September 24, 2009 through January 6, 2010.

The Gallery @ Yummy wine bar & bistro is proud to premier ‘Simulacrums’ a collection of new works by John Payne.

‘Simulacrums,’ is a vibrant collection of new paintings by Portland Oregon artist John Payne presented at The Gallery @ Yummy wine bar & bistro and his first solo exhibition.

At first glance the abstracted façades of the figures populating Payne’s creations are misleadingly simple and raw, yet as the viewer looks deeper into each piece the profound issues of personal identity and social commentary are unveiled to them.  John confronts the harsh philosophical realities of the world, filtering them through his stylistic interpretations of wide-eyed figures and exaggerated proportions.  Payne’s child like imagination, combined with a playful style of painting, take the viewer on an exploration through a darker, more complex and often melancholy universe enhanced by the viewers own interpretation of what they are seeing.

Of the process of creating art Payne says it is “simple and emotional at the same time,” and something he thoroughly enjoys.

Join us at Yummy wine bar & bistro for the opening reception of ‘Simulacrums’ on Thursday September 24, 2009 from 6-10pm to view the collection of new works by John Payne and meet the artist.

‘Simulacrums’ by John Payne is presented at ‘The Gallery @ Yummy wine bar & bistro’ located at 831 Broadway, in Seaside.  For more information please call at (503) 738-3100 or visit us at www.yummywinebarbistro.com
