Trading the snowy Maine coast for the lush green of Oregon, husband and wife Al Erikson and Kelle Bates Erikson opened Dancing Dogs Pottery & Art last fall. Located in the Greenhouse Market Place just north of downtown Yachats, this artist-owned gallery is a showcase for Al's functional porcelain pottery and impressionistic oil paintings, and Kelle's jewelry collages that repurpose furniture hardware, old coins and tin into necklaces, earrings and bracelets. Al worked as an art teacher for over 30 years and in this clean and airy setting, the duo's accomplished art shines bright. Dancing Dogs Pottery & Art, Yachats (541) 563-3578
