Five local artists from Thursday Art Gallery have each donated a selected piece to be sold at the first Thursday of October show with all proceeds going toward their favorite charities. Renowned local artist, Sarah Goodnough, has selected Boat & Bridge, Blue Night, 24 x 36, Acrylic on Canvas, to go on sale with all money raised going to the Oregon Chapter of the Sierra Club.

“Donating our art is a fabulous way we can all pay back to our communities with work that we are so fortunate to be able to produce. It’s a win-win for everyone.” Goodnough chose the  Sierra Club because she feels deeply about the importance of preserving our wilderness and promoting sustainability and renewable energy.

Sarah Goodnough has shown extensively throughout the Northwest and is best known for her abstract expressionistic views of the natural world.  Her riverscapes and salmon paintings have been very popular in Astoria, where she is the featured artist and interior designer of the Cannery Pier Hotel, a luxery boutique hotel in Astoria.  Additional samples of her work can be viewed at
