Showcasing the watercolors and oil paintings of its eponymous artist, the Jeffrey Hull Gallery celebrates 35 years in the heart of downtown Cannon Beach Oregon this April. Known for capturing the beauty and ambiance of places where land meets sea, Hull and his wife Carol started the gallery in a small, unique unit centrally located in Sandpiper Square in 1987. It has grown over the decades. and the spacious gallery now takes up most of the Square’s second-floor retail space.

When asked what he attributes to the gallery’s longevity, Hull shares, “I think people are deeply connected to my figurative art because of a shared love for the Pacific Northwest coast and are also really attracted by the friendly professionalism of our gallery. I consider myself blessed not only to do what I feel called to do, but also to be strongly supported by my family and surrounded by encouraging clients and a wonderful local artistic community. And it doesn’t hurt to be surrounded by endless inspiration here on Oregon’s beautiful North Coast.

To celebrate the gallery’s milestone, the artist will release several brand-new original paintings and at least one new print in conjunction with the Spring Unveiling Arts Festival in Cannon Beach, May 6-8.

Hull has been painting for almost five decades and exhibited her work in other local galleries before opening her own space. His deep love for the Pacific Northwest coast is evident in his seascapes, which feature wind-sculpted trees, crashing waves, and rugged cliffs blanketed in coastal mist. Primarily self-taught, Hull worked primarily in the difficult medium of watercolor for many years, but decided to return to oil as well some 15 years ago. He has painted over 2000 original works in his career (so far) and is a member of the prestigious American Society of Marine Artists. Her work has won several accolades at the annual juried exhibition of maritime art at the Coos Art Museum over the years, as well as multiple audience awards at the former Plein Air & More festival in Cannon Beach.
