CDABA: First Friday In Reedsport

First Friday, Art for Everyone will feature Photographer Duane A. Beach on Friday, March 1st, between 5 and 7pm. Duane has always had an interest in photography, but as a master electrician did not have the time to do more than treat is as a hobby. After retiring in 2008, his hobby developed into something more. Most of Duane’s photos are of the north and central Oregon coast, but a few come from central Oregon and Arizona. This First Friday event will also feature Mariam Harvey, of Lakeside. Mariam is a violinist who will also play for the attendees’ enjoyment.

The event will be hosted by Greg Viert and Patsy Sichley, the new owners of the Reedsport Natural Foods store. The store is at 1891 Winchester Avenue, Reedsport.
