The Art on the Edge Studio Tour of the Central Oregon Coast will take place May 21, 22 and 23, and this year the tour will consist of 18 studio sites, 35 participating artists and more than 25 mediums.

Art on the Edge is a self-guided tour of the studio spaces of well-known visual artists along the coast. These artists will show off their exclusive locations, demonstrate their creative processes and sell their work. Studios will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day of the tour.

To give people a taste of what’s in store, the Chessman Gallery — located inside the Lincoln City Cultural Center at 540 NE Highway 101 — will be hosting a showcase exhibit of all participating artists. The gallery exhibit opens today (Friday) and runs through June 6. This is a great opportunity to see work from all participating artists in one place. A virtual gallery tour of this exhibit will also be posted on Facebook@LincolnCityCulture. And down the hall at the cultural center, you will find Joanne Daschel’s Mosaic Studio, LCCC’s Fiber Arts Studio, Danelle Jones studio, and in the basement, Pam Young’s Clay Studio — all under one roof.

An in-person opening reception for this showcase exhibit takes place from 5 to 7 p.m. today. Entrance to the gallery will be limited to 10 people at a time, and appetizers and wine will be available outside and spaced out in the auditorium.

People can get guide booklets for the studio tour at the cultural center Thursday through Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., or at any of the studio sites throughout the tour on May 21, 22 or 23. The studio sites range in location from Neskowin to Newport along Highway 101 and then east to Toledo. The tour booklet also includes many local businesses that have supported the participating artists. COVID precautions will be in place — all visitors will be required to wear masks and practice social distancing while visiting the studios during the tour.
