Every month I feature a different artist as part of my Coastal Art and Artist showcase in Salem. This little gallery has become a tradition in my office, and brings many visitors to the 4th floor! We’ve had paintings, ceramics, photographs, and textiles. For the final month of the 2019 session, I am pleased to feature photographs from Simply Design Studios in Newport of commercial fishing boats, the Coast Guard, and our magnificent coastal landscape.
Coastal art is not just about culture. It is also about local jobs and a growing business sector. Simply Design Studios began in a garage in 2006 and now has a prime location on Highway 101 and five employees. I would like to extend a thank you to all the artists who showcased their work here in Salem. I look forward to exhibiting more wonderful artists from the Central Coast.
