According to Trails End President Richard Newman, “We are the oldest gallery on the Oregon Coast featuring a variety of art techniques by our members.   While we have new monthly shows all throughout the year, the Judged Annual Show is our highlight.  We encourage not only members to submit art work, but this show is open to the entire Northwest.  As a photographer, I like to capture real life moments in time.  I print some of my work on metal, but also use paper, wood, and glass. I also use the computer for enhancement.  Having taken pictures for a long time, I see the progression of my work over the years.  I joined Trails End a few years ago and won first in show that first year in this Annual Judged Show. So,  I do encourage all artists to enter.”
