Event

Art by the Sea Gallery and Studio announces that gallery member Sunny Kudo is participating in a two-person exhibit at the Coos Art Museum.

“The Nature of the Gourd” will showcase at least 15 new works by Kudo from Dec. 15 through Feb. 17, 2018. Kudo tied for first place in last year’s CAM Biennial Art Show, along with watercolorist Jean Kyle.

Kudo’s work is inspired by the prolific wildlife and natural beauty of Oregon’s south coast. She portrays salmon, heron, flowers, otters and much more on her gourd art through carving, painting and intricate design. Her work is widely collected and she likes to keep her prices reasonable so that her art is affordable.

The opening reception will be held from 5-7 p.m., Friday, Dec. 15, at the Coos Art Museum, 535 Anderson Ave., Coos Bay.
