Logo: Astoria Open Studio Tour July 30-31 10AM-4PM astoriavisualarts.org red/white text superimposed on blue and gray drawing of ocean wavesMake plans to discover the talents and diversity of Astoria, Oregon’s arts community when artists welcome you into their studios from 10 am to 4 pm Saturday, July 30 and Sunday, July 31, 2016. Their sixth annual Astoria Open Studio Tour showcases 47 different artists who are waiting to greet you and discuss their art and sources of inspiration. You’ll meet both professional artists and emerging talent who work in all kinds of media – sculptors, painters, fiber artists, potters, photographers, and more. You will see works in progress as well as finished pieces for sale, and learn what has drawn different artists to this beautiful location.
The Tour is self-guided and self-paced, allowing you time to watch live demonstrations as well as engage with the artists at the different studios and locations throughout the peninsula. Before you begin, be sure to visit the Astoria Visual Arts’ 2016 Open Studio Tour web page, where you will find a map, information about each of the artists participating in the 2016 Tour, their biographies, and examples of their creations. The Open Studio Tour website currently features the work of participants in the 2015 Tour.
The tour guide and map, which includes the 24 locations and all of the participating artists, is available on the Astoria Visual Arts website and at several gallery locations in Astoria. Best of all, you’ll find a number of the Open Studio Tour locations are clustered within an easy 5 to 10 minute walk from Clementine’s Bed and Breakfast on Exchange Street. Book your weekend stay at our B&B the last weekend in July and you’ll find yourself perfectly located for the Tour!

Get Shanghaied in Astoria July 7 – September 10 2016!

June 30th, 2016 by Clementines B&B

Need an excuse for a weekend getaway? Tell them you were Shanghaied in Astoria! ‘Part-vaudeville, part-soap opera, and part 1950’s style Hollywood musical’, this award-winning three-act melodrama has been entertaining audiences every summer for 32 years, and should be on your bucket list for 2016.

So get ready to travel back in time to 1904, and Astoria’s Scandinavian Midsummer Festival, where Miss Virginia Sweet must be rescued from her guardian by the Norwegian hero, Eric Olson. You can cheer for the heroes, sigh with the heroine, and boo, hiss and throw popcorn at the villains while you enjoy a tale about Astoria’s infamous history. At intermission, belly up at the bar in Miss Vivian’s Saloon for refreshments if you wish – a local draft from Fort George Brewery, soft drinks, hot dogs, candy, and that essential popcorn, of course.

The Astor Street Opry Company is ready to Shanghai you Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, and Sunday afternoons this summer.

July 7 – September 10, 2016

Box Office opens at 6:00 pm, doors open at 6:30 pm, and show time is 7:00 pm.

We promise you won’t be Shanghaied when you come to Clementine’s – you’ll awaken in a delightfully comfy bed, and Judith’s breakfasts featuring the summer’s local bounty will reassure you that you are right here in Astoria and not in a bunk on a ship bound for parts unknown! Book now for an entertaining adventure and a tale you can tell on Monday morning.
