If you have never been, Icefire Glassworks is located in the old Van Vleet logging building at the corner of Gower Street and Hemlock. At Icefire Glassworks, visitors can watch as glass artists Jim Kingwell and Suzanne Kindland create vessels with dramatic colors and specialized techniques.
Who wouldn’t want to take home an original painting by Washington artist Mary Arnold? Arnold is a versatile artist that is as comfortable working with textile as she is with oil. Her love of nature and the sea comes through in everything that she does. This original piece, entitled “From the Path,” was inspired by Arnold’s favorite place – Cannon Beach. Not to mention a few great pieces Pacific Northwest illustrator Gabri Kirkendall. Kirkendall specializes in hand lettering, watercolor, and pen & ink. Other prizes include a dinner for two from Cannon Beach Mo’s, or one of two $25 gift cards from Insomnia Coffee, one of two $20 gift certificates from Cannon Beach Treasure Company, a gift card from the Human Bean, an original Beth Willis CD, or any of our other twenty amazing prizes!
