Manzanita’s Hoffman Center for the Arts will host an art exhibit throughout March, featuring mixed media by Dennis Worrel, pen and ink drawings by Reed Wilson and textured ceramics by a group of North Coast potters.

The show is available to view from 2 to 5 pm every Friday and Saturday, and opens with a public reception from 2 to 5 pm this Saturday, March 3.

Dennis Worrel’s recent works, called “Remembrances,” stem from his interest in the Oregon Coast, where he has lived the past 20 years. Working with paint, ink and graphite, Worrel reimagines memories and stories left behind by those who came here to work in the woods, the mills, railroads and small towns. His intention is to deepen our connection by merging stories we bring with memories and stories from people who came before us.

Guests can also view a series of delicate and detailed postage-stamp-sized pen and ink drawings of moths by Reed Wilson, a physician and life-long illustrator.

And 10 North Coast ceramicists will show pieces that incorporate texture to add depth, interest and storytelling.

The Hoffman Center is located at 594 Laneda Avenue.
