Books have been an integral part of Christine Trexel’s life since early childhood. She firmly believes a day without time set aside for reading is an incomplete day. As an adult, she began her journey into creating her own books, which led to boxes and making paper. Christine grows, harvests, and processes plants from her garden to make paper for the books and boxes she creates. Christine has had the opportunity to show her work at Fairweather Gallery in Seaside, in juried shows, and in selected venues.

**The numbering system equals the number of items Christine has created for Fairweather’s!

Christine Trexel is a member of Focus on Book Arts, a group of book artists dedicated to making educational experiences available.

Seaside sunset by Linda Fenton-Mendenhall

The day after the last of the January King Tides, a term people used to describe exceptionally high tides that occur during a new or full moon, along the Oregon coast.

 

 

Linda Fenton-Mendenhall is a photographer living and working in one of the most beautiful parts of the Pacific Northwest, the Oregon Coast. Her love of photography is born from a life steeped in nature. “It is easy to see beauty in everything when you have grown up in days framed with spectacular sunrises, incredible scenery, and breathtaking ocean views.” LFM

And, too, Linda has served as the professional Seaside First Saturday Art Walk photographer for more than 10 years and is a featured artist at Fairweather’s, as well.

Fairweather House and Gallery annouces the 2022 Seaside First Saturday Art Walk opening artist receptions.

NW art in a selected theme will be displayed March-December 2022 and the exhibitions will be photographed by Linda Fenton-Mendenhall.

“Part curatorial, part installation Fairweather brings together artists’ works from a wide variety of genres and mediums, grouping them into an expansive spectrum of theme and color.” –-Seaside Signal

By watercolor artist and CBAA Board member Mary Lyn Gough

The CBAA Board & Staff exhibition is now open! This is a two-week exhibition highlighting all of the creative individuals who make up our board of directors. This show will run through Jan 23, 2022.

Mary Lyn is a Principal Program Delivery Partner at Providence. Mary Lyn Gough is a long time artist, painting in watercolor. Mary Lyn is honored to serve on the CBAA board, giving back to the art community she loves. Most recently, her art was juried into the Natioinal Watercolor Society show.

 

And, too, in March, 2022, Mary Lyn Gough returns to Seaside, with an exhibition of new watercolors at Fairweather Gallery. 

The Oregon Coast Council for the Arts presents the exhibit “The Short Days of Winter,” by Agnes Field,  through Feb. 26, 2022 at the Newport Visual Arts Center. 

 

Born and raised in Astoria, Agnes Field moved to New York City and studied at the School of Visual Arts. She completed her graduate work in studio art at New York University before working at Studio Art International in Florence and Venice. Fields is a founding board member of Astoria Visual Arts,  KMUN-FM radio, and has been a practicing artist on the North Oregon Coast for over 20 years. Most recently she awarded a PICA Precipice Fund grant—funded by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Arts and the Calligram Foundation—to restore and repurpose, along with two other artists, an historic local park. Field’s work has been shown nationally and internationally and can be found on the coast at Astoria Visual Arts Gallery, Cannon Beach Gallery, Fairweather Gallery, and others.

Most of the materials I use are recycled or found material and occasionally the materials define the direction of my work. I do believe in material identity—that certain materials have their own possibilities and sense of time. The tension is between chance and choice—the unexpected given or the decisions made.”  Agnes Field

Fairweather Gallery opening artist receptions dates and month-to-month art exhibitions for 2022.

  • Mar. 05 through Mar. 25  Fearturing Mary Lyn Gough among other regional artists

For Valentine’s Day, February 14,  2022. Exclusive jewelry designs and chocolates.

Loving relationships require a “we”-rather than focusing on “me.”

Just in. Chanel’s hearts were designed into lovely pendant necklaces by NW jewelry designer Rene’e Hafeman for 2022.

“Growing up, my grandmother would pull out her jewelry box, take each piece out one-by-one and explain in detail what it was, where it came from and why it was so special to her. This developed my love of jewelry.” — RH

CHANEL heart pendant on 14k 18″ gold-filled chain. One only. For 2022.

I started to think of how the treasured pieces, many handed down from generation to generation, could be re-imagined into new design. I give them new life.”  –RH

The use of “we” implies a strong bond: a partnership, a team, a couple, a family, and a community. When you use “we,” you connect your thoughts, values, and intentions to another who you feel is on the same page as you in the chapter of life.

And, too, we -the Fairweather Gallery in Seaside, Oregon, are pleased to offer Fran’s Chocolates, for discrimmating couples, who know.

A blank canvas is slightly daunting, so the sooner the process can be initiated the better.  —Diana Nadal

I have disciplined myself to paint in a series or themes to create a body of work. –DN

6 x 6 watercolor on board

It doesn’t matter which subject to paint, the initial response to a blank canvas has to be strong enough to create a good theme, design, and composition.   –-Diana Nadal, watercolor artist

This is a painting started at the beginning of a challenge as a background. Everyone needs a little color to brighten loving spirits.DN
