    At Hoffman Center for the Arts

    Manzanita, Oregon

    For the month of March we are featuring ceramics of Mary Roberts. 

    Mary is interested in elegant and modern forms with a feeling of volume. She seeks tension between perfection in the forms with imperfection in surface through carving, texturing, etching, drawing, or applying slip to a refined shape.

    This balancing act seems like a metaphor for just about everything. The search for perfection or ideal and then the beauty that comes from messiness and imperfection. 

    Mary is a local potter and volunteer with the Hoffman Center for the Arts.  

    This exhibit opens this Friday March 4 and continues every Friday through Sunday, 1-5pm, until March 27. Hoffman Center for the Arts

    594 Laneda Avenue, Manzanita, Oregon

    The gallery is free and open to the public.

    The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita Oregon is very pleased to feature OPA member Serafine Lilien through the month of September. The Gallery is open 1-5 Thursdays through Sundays until September 26 at 594 Laneda Avenue, Manzanita Oregon. 

    Serafine works in clay to create whimsical yet realistic sculptures of dogs and cats. She captures the character of the animals and sees and creates their love and sensitivity in the gestures and poses of her pieces. Her art background is classic from studying and sculpting the figure at the National Academy of Design in NY and Artida Arts Inc. in Italy. She has an undergraduate degree in Medical Illustration, hence her realism style.

    Also note- the gallery is accepting applications for shows in 2022 through Oct. 15 for artists with a connection to the Oregon Coast. We encourage those interested to read through the application information. Check it out here!

    The Hoffman Center for the Arts is pleased to show the exceptional Anagama-fired ceramics of OPA members Joe Robinson & Audrey Sloan through August. These collaborative works speak to the wind, the ocean, and the earth. Made in proximity to the water, each piece was hand thrown on the potters wheel by Joe Robinson and carved by Aubrey Sloan. Each work is fired with trees and air from Oregon’s coastal mountains for 5 days and nights around the clock. Inspired by the movements of the water observed from our Bay City home overlooking Tillamook Bay, the pots serve as a record in stone of artists and water. Opening Reception August 7 from 3-5pm, the Show runs through August 29th. Located in Manzanita, Oregon. We hope you visit!

Just across from Arbor Lodge Park, where your kids can romp around, if you’d like. Please RSVP so I know how many to expect.

    Friday, June 11th 6pm 

    19438 SW Neugebauer Road, Hillsboro Larry & Debi Nelson

    Join the Nelsons on their woodsy homestead. Come ‘self-sufficient’ with your own chair and picnic, though some homebrew may be available. We have room for lots of folks and about 20 cars.

RSVP flashpointartworks@gmail.combut if you get a last minute urge to come by, do so! We’re easy to find--- I-5 to the Brownsville exit, once in Brownsville (4 miles off the freeway) turn south at the 76 gas station and go 3.2 miles on Washburn/Gap Rd.  Rhoda has big signs, and a blue mailbox. She’s got a large parking lot, but carpooling is a nice idea. She also reports that Brownville is a fun little town to explore if you want to make a day of it.

  • Wed, March 31, 2021 5:55 AM | Mary Roberts

    Located in Manzanita, Oregon, the Hoffman Center Gallery will feature Mary Roberts functional wheel-thrown vessels from April 2 through 25. Gallery hours are Fridays through Sundays 1-5. 

    Mary’s works are elegant and modern: round, oval, angular, often brought to conclusion by exaggeration: a diminutive or elongated neck, platters ample, bowls coaxed upward or folded. .

    The Pacific Northwest coast inspires each surface – delicately lined shells, sculpted driftwood, fissured bark, overcast skies and granite rock, incandescent spring growth. Subtle and understated.

    All are food and dishwasher safe. See more examples of her work here Mary Roberts Ceramics

    We are very pleased to have Chayo Wilson's ceramic and metal sculptures in the Hoffman Center Gallery through February. Open Fridays through Sundays 1-4. 

    Chayo Wilson

    I am inspired each day by the leaf I pick up on my morning walk, the colors of the sky, texture of bark, bringing divine to Earth through our Vessel, Age and Beauty, Journey and Story, and the highly charged emotional climate of our Present Time.
