The Oregon Coast Council for the Arts welcomes Douglas County visual artist Bill Karcher to the Coastal Oregon Visual Artist Showcase and Video Archive at the Newport Visual Arts Center.

Coastal Catch, an exhibit of sculptural ceramics by Karcher, will open today (Friday) along with the premier showing of a video of his studio and process. An opening reception is set for 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. today at the Newport Visual Arts Center in the second floor conference room.

Karcher received a gift when he retired from a 30-year career in education teaching math, science, marine biology and forestry in Reedsport. This brought about a significant change in his life.
