Three days of art, music and literary events will showcase the galleries and artists of Cannon Beach at the 25th annual Stormy Weather Arts Festival, November 2-4, 2012. And if it rains, or the wind blows, that’s just part of what makes this festival so memorable.

Cannon Beach shops, restaurants and galleries will also be hosting music, art and literary events throughout the weekend.

This fascinating event kicks off the weekend of activities on Friday, Nov. 2 as artists demonstrate their techniques, working for a full hour on a single painting, which will be finished and offered for sale during the weekend.  Each artist will also offer work that will be auctioned off Friday evening.
