Selden of Coos Bay received the “Port Award” for his oil “Sunrise over Charleston Marina.” Don McMichael of North Bend received the Directors’ Award for his oil, “Narwhal in Ice.”
The Directors’ Award is selected through a vote by the Coos Art Museum board of directors.
The Best of Show juror and featured artist of the 26th Annual Maritime Art Exhibition is Calvin Liang of Corona, California. Liang is known for landscape and seascape painting using strong brushwork and a commanding color pallet.
