Southern Coos Hospital & Health Center Quarterly Art Show
Call to Artists
Home: a Place, a Feeling, a State of Mind

The Southern Coos Hospital & Health Center will be hosting a show of artworks created reflecting upon the theme of “Home”. Some thoughts:
Home is where the heart is.”
Home away from home.”
Home, sweet home, etc.”

Artists may think of home as an actual place, a feeling, or a state of mind.

Artists may enter 1-3 pieces using painting, collage, mixed media, drawing, photography or assemblage in all artistic styles: representational, abstract, or futuristic. All works must be able to be hung on the wall.

Please remember that art on the hospital walls is meant to entertain and de-stress the patients, families, staff and general visitors. It is not a venue for nudity, violence, morbidity, or a political soapbox. Thank you for your continued positive approach to art in these shows.

Instructor Allen (Tony) Adams provides an introduction to acrylics, painting techniques and familiarizes both the beginning artist and artists already using acrylics in the preparation of the painting surface, application of the medium, and selecting a palette.  Each session will consist of a short painting demonstration by the instructor followed by a question and answer period.  The remainder of each session will be spent with students working on their own paintings, during which time Tony will work one-on-one with each student sharing helpful information he has gained in 60 years of painting in both commercial and fine arts. 

Recognized as one of the area’s premier realist painters, Allen (Tony) Adams’ qualifications include time spent as a screen cartoonist at Walt Disney Studios and 30 years as an illustrator and graphic designer at General Dynamics Corp. 

Class size is limited to 10 participants.  Cost is $115 for CAM members, $130 for non-members.  Registration ends February 4, 2016.  For registration go to or visit Coos Art Museum at 235 Anderson in Downtown Coos Bay.

Cuss and Discuss

ADVANCING THE DIALOGUE ~ Open forum community discussion group debuts at
So It Goes Coffeehouse
Coos Bay – So It Goes Coffeehouse is honored to host Advancing the Dialogue, a new open-forum discussion group on current local issues. Facilitated by Portland host Nick Martin, Advancing the Dialogue will begin with two sessions in February at the shop.

On February 9th at 7pm we kick off with a group discussion on Industry and the Environment. On February 23rd we continue with a discussion on Homelessness. These topics are intended as launching points for conversation and all are invited.

Nick Martin is a native of the Portland area where he hosted weekly discussion groups. A staunch adherent of truth, reason, compassion, and justice, he wants to extend the idea of an open group dialogue to the Coos Bay area, where he is currently sojourning, in hopes of adding to the local, national, and international conversation of various topics and ideas.

So It Goes is Coos Bays newest old-school coffeehouse - featuring great coffee, full bakery, killer art, live music, bad poetry readings, used books, free wifi, chess, and small absurdist theatrics.
