Weekly Open Gallery At Hoffman Center For The Arts

The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will hold “Open Gallery” hours every Friday, from 2 to 4 p.m., beginning March 4.
The Center frequently has art shows on display throughout the month, but it is not open except during specific events. Local artist and former board member Peggy Biskar developed the Open Gallery idea.
“It was a shame that people didn’t know when they could get in to see our latest shows, so we created a special time each week,” she said.
Hoffman Center volunteers will be on hand during Open Gallery hours to greet the public, discuss the artworks, and help with sales if someone is interested in purchasing one or more pieces.

Dan Haag
Born and raised in the great white north of Minnesota, Dan Haag felt the pull of the north Oregon Coast in the early 90s. Finding that rain never needed to be shoveled, he married an Oregon girl and settled in Manzanita, where he works as director of the Manzanita Visitors Center. He is also a freelance writer whose work has appeared in a variety of state and national publications. He spends his free time wandering the area’s many trails, supporting the Oregon wine and beer industry, perusing coastal bookstores, and chasing his black Labrador, Lilo, along the beach.
