A free public reception for two recently opened exhibitions will take place on the second floor of the Coos Art Museum on Friday, July 23, from 5 to 7 p.m. The reception honors two Oregon artists Susan Dimock of Bandon and Claire Duncan of Ashland. The exhibitions are Rocks, Vines and Lines in the Sand (Susan Dimock) and Reflections on the Human Epoch (Claire Duncan). This would also be a wonderful opportunity to view the Museum’s 27th Maritime Art Exhibition.
