"Jelly" by Donna McCoy

"Beach Sunset" by John Legeman

The latest Spotlight Show from the Yaquina Art Association features photography from John Legeman and Donna McCoy.

A former English teacher who branched out into digital photography, Legeman retired and moved to the Oregon Coast in the summer of 2011. He enjoys walking the forests and beaches with his camera, shooting in both black and white and color. Sunsets, light streaming through forests, beach and river scenes and more moments of nature can be found in his photos.

As a child, McCoy spent her summers chasing bugs with a magnifying glass. Today, she shares that passion as she captures animals on film.

Often outfitted with a macro lens and waders, McCoy explores the ocean’s edge, capturing and sharing amazing details, colors, patterns and textures.

“I enjoy working within one inch — a world just within the reach of the human eye” she said. “I love being surprised by the art hidden just within sight. My job is to find and share. The art is already there.”

The Spotlight Show runs through Friday, Dec. 15, available to view from 11 am to 4 pm daily at the Yaquina Art Association Gallery, 789 NW Beach Drive.
