Trail’s End Gallery will open a new show during the Gearhart ArtWalk on Saturday, June 1, featuring the gallery’s pastel group of eight which meet weekly at the gallery.

A reception will be held in their honor from 2 to 5 p.m.

Other Trail’s End artists will be displaying their work around the gallery, which is located at 656 A Street in Gearhart.

The pastel group is made up of intermediate and advanced pastel artists. It was started by Kathy Moberg and has been meeting for at least 15 years.

All are professional artists and most have won awards over the years from their presence in various shows and competitions.

Along with Moberg are long-time painters, Lynda Campbell, Mary Ann Gantenbein, Jan Clawson, Deanne Johnson and Susan Thomas. Newer to the group are Claire McIntyre and Linda Rook.

In May this group will be moving to the outdoors weekly, painting in various scenic spots along the coast in Washington and Oregon.

Trail’s End is the oldest gallery on the North Coast, having been built as a schoolhouse in the early 1900s and reverted to art classrooms and a gallery mid-century.

For further information, contact the gallery during from Wednesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.; 503-717-9458 or visit
