This is the Hoffman Center’s fifth year of inviting artists to participate in a community art show during the month of January.

With COVID-19, politics, the awakening of attitudes about history, fairness and equality, 2020 has been exceptionally challenging and a time of reflection. Like the earliest forms of human expression in cave paintings, Hoffman Center for the Arts wanted to provide an opportunity for artistic voice. Thus, they chose a provocative two-color combination for our 2021 color show: Black and Blue.

The Hoffman Center invites Tillamook and Clatsop county artists of all mediums to participate.

One (this means one!) piece of Art is due between 3-5 p.m. Dec. 27. Artwork must include both colors black and blue. The center prefers that the art be available for sale. They will display and offer with 70 percent commission to the artist and the remainder to the Hoffman Center for the Arts.

The show will open Jan. 2, 2021 and continue every weekend through Jan. 28. In the past, the community color shows have been a celebration at the center during the darkest month of the year.

But this year may be different with the crucial need for keeping safe. Who knows, the center might do something creative to extend a sense of connection when we can’t gather in a large group – stay tuned! For more information contact

Situated on the main street in Manzanita just a few blocks west of Highway 101, the Hoffman Center Art Gallery is located across the street from the North Tillamook Library.
