About the event
The Oregon Coast Council for the Arts is pleased to present the exhibit “Oregon Coast Jazz Party Series” photographs by Chris Graamans in the Olive Street Gallery at the Newport Performing Arts Center. The exhibit will run from September 2 through October 30 and will include photos of performers from the past 6 years of the Oregon Coast Jazz Party.
Graamans, a photographer based in Yachats, Oregon, specializes in the photography of people. “I like to photograph people who are immersed in doing what they love. What better subject than top-flight jazz performers improvising? From the very beginning of my pursuit of photography, I've been captivated by the performing arts. Theater rehearsals and concerts were my training ground. There is a wealth of expression on display that is hard to match elsewhere. I've been photographing the Oregon Coast Jazz Party since 2015. The 13 pieces in this show are my personal favorites, selected from 6 years' worth of live concert material.”
The Oregon Coast Jazz Party celebrates great live jazz – and the dedicated fans who love it – on the central Oregon coast. This year’s event is from September 30 – October 1. Music director Ken Peplowski is the master of mixing and matching these stars to make magic happen on stage over two days and three unforgettable performances - with no two alike!
The Olive Street Gallery is located at 777 W. Olive Street at the Newport Performing Arts Center.
Public hours are Tuesday – Friday from 10am – 5pm.
