Sun sets on gallery season

Thanksgiving weekend is last opening until April  

Marie Powell Gallery will be open Friday & Saturday, Nov. 29-30, before we close for winter. The gallery typically reopens for spring in April.

In case you can't make it this weekend you can always browse art online at and email us to arrange a showing or purchase.

Here's some good news: the art show "The Edge" featuring my work at AVA Gallery in Astoria, OR has been extended to run through Dec. 7! That's an additional week to not only see a selection of my pieces, but to explore the works of five other area artists. Call it an early Christmas gift!

Final gallery weekend!

Visit Nov. 29-30 before we close for winter


Fiber artist Susan Spence here Thanksgiving weekend

Head our way this Friday and Saturday, Nov. 29-30, during the Fall Open Studio Tour when local fiber artist extraordinaire Susan Spence will be heading the gallery. This very well may be the last time you can visit us before Christmas, so don't wait!

Randy and I plan to close the gallery for winter Dec. 1 through March. We'll announce any spontaneous openings on Facebook, so keep an eye on social media.

We spend the winter months in New Zealand, where almost every day I work with other artists, expand my techniques and immerse myself in creativity. I'll use Facebook and this enews to keep you all abreast of my adventures!

Christmas in Ilwaco
Concert on Dec. 8 is a holiday highlight


Tickets are $10 at

The Long Beach Peninsula's Water Music Society celebrates the beauty and spirit of the holiday season with an afternoon of extraordinary Christmas and holiday music performed by the delightful and extremely talented vocalist Eugenie Jones and her instrumental combo. 

Eugenie performed at Jazz & Oysters in August, as well as in 2018, to delighted audiences! The Water Music Society's annual Christmas concert is Sunday, Dec. 8, at the festively decorated Eagle's Nest in Ilwaco. The concert is the perfect way to commence the holiday season!

Festivities begin at 1:35 p.m. with sweet and savory treats, beverages and a no-host champagne and wine bar. Then enjoy a musical feast starting at 2:35 p.m.
–  the :35 represents this year's 35th anniversary of the Water Music Society, started in 1985. 

Tickets are $10 online at or at the door, if tickets remain. A portion of proceeds is donated to the local school music department to further students' music education and opportunities.

Exploration in creativity

Winter scenes at the Port

Sublime sunrises and stacked crab pots are familiar winter sights at the Port of Ilwaco. 
"Christmas crab" is a holiday tradition in many Long Beach Peninsula homes. Watch the catch arrive at the port and then buy your own fresh Christmas crab at one of the Long Beach Peninsula's seafood markets.
