Late June’s hotter weather arrived just in time to usher in the White Lotus Gallery’s summer exhibit, Oregon Coast, with its feelings of cool breezes, tangy ocean scents, and varied landscapes.

The show features the work of 10 artists well-known to the gallery and its patrons: Rich Bergeman, Jon Jay Cruson, Dirk Eshleman, Analee Fuentes, Satoko Motouji, Connie Mueller, Jamie Newton, Lillian Pitt, Margaret Prentice and Gary Tepfer, giving vision to the way these artists see the world, and particularly here, the Oregon Coast.

These artists work in a variety of subjects and mediums, ranging from photography and paintings to reduction linocut and other prints, mixed-media and sculpture.
