The new exhibit at Lincoln City’s Chessman Gallery showcases work from all the artists involved in this year’s Art on the Edge studio tour.

The show opens this Friday, May 11, with a reception from 5 to 7 pm, offering guests the chance to chat with the artists and admire everything from oil paintings to weaving to driftwood furniture.

Running from Friday, May 18, through Sunday, May 20, the Art on the Edge tour will see artists from Neskowin to Depoe Bay show off their exclusive studio locations, demonstrate their creative processes and sell their work.

The tour map will guide participants to 25 studios, some nestled in the forests and others a block from the beach. There are cozy cottage-like studios, creative garages, professional photography studios, glass-blowing studios and basement studios in the Lincoln City Cultural Center itself.

“This tour is an exquisitely fun visual treasure hunt,” said Krista Eddy, tour organizer and Chessman Gallery director.

Tour maps and buttons, priced at $10, are on sale now at the Lincoln City Cultural Center and will be available during the tour from all of the participating studios.

The Chessman Gallery exhibit will run through June 4, available to view from 10 am to 4 pm daily except Tuesday.

The Chessman Gallery is located inside the Lincoln City Cultural Center at 540 NE Hwy. 101.
