Paul Brent arrives for the summer of 2020 at Fairweather’s to paint LIVE during Seaside First Saturday Art Wal

From his watercolors to his recent oil paintings he captures nature in its best and most idyllic form.

While being best known for his beach subjects, he has painted landscapes that are equally indicative of his talent to recreate all aspects of nature.

He especially enjoys painting local scenes and beachscapes that he views near his two home studios in Panama City, Florida and Seaside, Oregon.

Paul Brent has offered painting demonstrations, a pop-up studio and painting classes during the past 11 years at Fairweather’s.

Emily Miller 

I have spent my life on the coast, and all my artwork has its roots in my love of the sea. My work explores natural beauty and cycles of change centered around coastal environments, where our human connection to nature becomes clear. I see the coast as a transition zone between our known human world and the deep unknown “otherness” of the open sea. By approaching this otherness in the context of playful curiosity, collaboration, and connection, my work creates an environment for positive transformation that enriches our relationships with ourselves, each other, and our world.

I am in Oregon. My work draws direct inspiration from the Pacific Northwest coast as well as my background in California, Kauai, and Down East Maine. I often incorporate natural and reclaimed materials into a wide range of work including watercolor and encaustic painting, mixed media sculpture, functional porcelain ware, and interactive installation art. I have been a practicing artist for over twenty-five years, and a full-time professional artist since 2016. My award-winning work is included in public and private collections around the United States.

I’ve appreciated your re-opening updates and glad to know you are staying safe out on the coast during the pandemic.

Thanks for all you do!”

“Devil’s Cauldron” oil impasto painting by Leah Kohlenberg. SOLD!

The Devil’s Cauldron is a cliff-backed cove just south of Short Sand Beach.

The ocean swells churn and froth around a handful of sea stacks,  making this a spectacular view on a fine day.

A viewpoint at the top of the cliffs can be reached from the nearby Oregon Coast Trail.

“I have been drawing and painting for 18 years, but the impasto work at Fairweather’s is entirely new for me.This oil painting was inspired by the Oregon coast, but the colors are wild and bright (sometimes wacky) and the land forms are intentionally abstract.” Leah Kohlenberg

Spot on!

Cauldron oil impasto by Leah Kohlenberg placed in a Fairweather lay-away plan!

 

 

Q: Did you know that people buy art on lay-away installment plans?  

A: It is a concept that has always been part of the art gallery world. 

 

 

 

“Following the Flowers” by Bev Drew Kindley SOLD!

 

“An Oregon artist, I paint impressionistic landscapes “en plein air” my paintings are based on site experience, memories, sketches and photos.

Searching for the brightness and joy in every season, inspired by the light and energy I find in nature, I experiment to transform the excitement I

feel into colors, shapes, movements and brushstrokes.”   Bev Drew Kindley

 

 

 

Q:  Who was the woman artist who did a painting demo in a Seaside hotel recently?  She was painting a landscape. I would like to purchase a work of art by the artist. She was very generous with her time visiting with me.

A: The River Inn at Seaside sponsored a painting LIVE event with Fairweather artist Bev Drew Kindley.  Painting demonstrations are a wonderful way to view an artist working.  Please make an appointment to visit the Fairweather Gallery in Seaside. This is the best way to see Bev’s newest work. In addition to being a Fairweather resident artist, Bev Drew Kindley participates in solo exhibitions, pop-up galleries, and studio shows.

 

 

“Following the Flowers” by Bev Drew Kindley placed in a Fairweather lay-away plan!

 

 

Fairweather’s lay-away plan for art:

We take the price of the art divide by however many months the patron wants to pay the art off and set up a payment plan with an automatic credit card payment each month. 

The art remains in the gallery, safely stored, in layaway until it is paid. There are no additional holding or finance charges, and the art may be viewed anytime a patron wishes to visit it until it is ready to go home.

Fairweather’s has always believed art should be available to all people and that is why we offer lay-away payment plans for art.

“Art touches people in a way that words cannot.

Especially now in our time of Covid-19 crisis, art reaches out and holds a light of hope.

Through color and expression, art is healing for the artist and for humanity.

In our most dire hours, art keeps us sane, lights the dark and ensures we stay human.”

~ Benjamin Law, journalist/writer

“Summer Fun” 18 x 24 original oil on linen  by Victoria Brooks

 

“Sometimes a painting resonates emotionally goes to a home to savor the feelings it evokes again and again. Sometimes a painting reminds someone of something in their own life,  perhaps, rekindling memories of shared moments, and sometimes clients just like a painting’s technical execution or want to add a little more beauty to their lives.”  VB

“It was good to see you!  I’m so happy you are hanging in there with the Gallery during the COVID crisis. It brings joy to so many people.  Take special care.”  Victoria Brooks

“Indeed, at the  gallery, new safety measures are proving more of a plus than an inconvenience.  Visitors’ newfound awareness of their surroundings following the reopening have created a more focused, harmonious gallery experience. These days, you feel like everything is slowing down generally, it is actually kind of nice to take time to really see an exhibit. 

As a curator,  balancing public safety along with the desire to allow visitors to freely engage with art;  truly, everyone seems to understand the situation we are all in, and for this, I am thankful.”  D. Fairweather, gallerist

She was a founding member of a jazz ensemble, “Clear Daze” as a keyboardist/pianist, composer and arranger, which released a CD of original jazz compositions. Colette continues to compose music for various music libraries.

Colette studied with two oil painting instructors, Thomas Fulwider and Betty Raymond, who made a profound impact in her life. Colette has received numerous awards in juried shows.

“In my travels, I find the Oregon Coast as one of my most favorite places to visit.  The coastal veranda offers spectacular vistas that are ever changing. I never tire of the incredible expansive beauty the Oregon Coast offers”.  CF

 

 

 

 

Artist grace note received.
“It was a pleasure visiting with you recently.  Your gallery, displayed with a plethora of mediums, was a visual delight. I am very excited to be a part of the family of artists in your gallery.”  Colette Fallon
And, too, a pair of new grace notes received…

“I’ve been enjoying all of your info about your gallery! Fun to see everything! One of these days I’ll pop in, mask and all! Hope you have a lovely reopening.” Joan S.

“I know you will be able to manage all the changes for the gallery you are implementing.  It is hard for everyone at this time.  Please take it slow and steady until summer is in full swing.  I know you will keep everyone stay safe.”  Kathy B.
“Enclosed is the ” Clear Daze” CD. The music was written by Jerry Paul, the guitar player and myself.  It’s an eclectic group of compositions with jazz influences.  The cover has a photo of Tillamook Head  in Seaside.  Jerry is a photographer, as well. He did that photo of me that I sent you.  Thank you for selecting the CD as a music choice in your gallery.”  Colette Fallon
Clear Daze CD review:
“A delicate sound for a perplexed world. An instrumental jazz ensemble that blends a broad spectrum of original sounds with a captivating mix of styles and dynamics.  In a “dazed” world of conflict and confusion, the music gives a “clear” sense of calm and certainty.”

“Crowded Kindesses” by Emily McNeil

24″ x 24″ oil on canvas

$1600

 

Emily McNeil’s  art education consisted of taking classes and workshops, reading books, watching videos of her favorite artists, going to museums and galleries and studying her grandfather’s copies of Art of the West.

 

She is grateful to Brent Burkett, who nurtured her in his quiet way through the techniques of “real art”; to Tom Browning, who told her he thought she could make it as an artist; to Morgan Weistling, for his kindness and critique that still makes the artist smile to think of; to Scott Christensen, for the abundance of knowledge he shared; and to Dan Gerhartz for his teaching on color temperature, his critiques, and his inspiring life and paintings.

Inspirational quote:

“…All things await the sensitive and imaginative mind that may be aroused to pleasurable emotion at sight of them. This is beauty. The art student that should be, and is so rare, is the one whose life is spent in the love and culture of his personal sensations, the cherishing of his emotions, never undervaluing them, the pleasure of exclaiming them to others, and an eager search for their clearest expression.” – Robert Henri

“Pink Garland”  by Emily McNeil

6″ x 8″ oil on canvas

$295

Symbolically, a pink rose means perfect happiness,

June has long been considered an ideal month for roses. Not only are they in season, but they are a popular choice for still life paintings.

 

“Sweet Garland” by Emily McNeil

6″ x 8″ oil on canvas

$295

Symbolically,  a white rose signifies innocence, purity, and new beginnings.

 

To create art.                                                                                               

One needs time. Long stretches of time.

Let  yourself have this time, without media distractions.

Let all your senses participate in the moment. I

t is this elevated way of seeing that gives you something to share.

What you see most deeply is the thing to create from.

Take from your experience and make it your own. 

Arrange things the way they were in your daydream.

 

 

 

“Through her paintings, Emily McNeil invites you to see the world through her perspective of beauty and elegance, of exquisite light and rich color. Her trained eye and disciplined skill are blended with an alluring charm, making her paintings delight your senses and touch your heart.”

Strike off to show complementing frame detail
I was a Navy wife, mother, critical care nurse and golfer for many years. We lived in many different states and countries.  I spend summers on the Oregon Coast, enjoying family, and live in the Willamette Valley during the winter. My art background has been with clay – hand built, pottery and tile design, until discovering painting with encaustic (bees wax).”   Peg Wells

“With a history that stretches back to the hauntingly beautiful portraits of ancient Greece, modern encaustic art is enjoying a renewal of popularity among artists and art lovers alike.  Art collectors are assimilating encaustic art into their collections.  Peg Well’s encaustic works depict a broad range of surface effects and has a luminous translucency that is, truly, unique in innovation and creativity.”   —D. Fairweather, gallerist

 

Another note received:

Jackie Leloff artist statement:

Primarily painting landscapes and nature, I am always in search of new techniques.

Having lived in the Pacific Northwest for 20 years, I find the landscape intriguing. The colors of this beautiful state has influenced and giving me my impressionistic style. I embellish the beauty of what I see with color and texture. I hope to convey peace and calm, making the viewer feel right in the scenery.

I have worked as a surgical nurse for 23 years, painting is my creative outlet.  It gives me balance.

Peg Wells and Jackie Leloff are  nurses who use art as a strategy to maintain balance and meaning in their lives as healers. Both, surely, share an equally ambitious vision that includes promoting the arts, humanities, and the therapeutic benefits of creativity.” —D. Fairweather, gallerist

 

“Fairweather House and Gallery had a few sales during the recent mandated shutdown. Some galleries pinned their hopes on online sales.  To thrive online we would have to forfeit our main role: our knowledge on a work of art and our capacity to transform an art object into a story. Therefore, the solution to go online was never an option;  we needed to stay mindful about the fact that this was totally contrary to what our business is.

And, too, on-going messages from artists during the 3 month shutdown provided much-needed solace for us. Art lovers will drive future sales for it is really the special artist stories that people are waiting for, in our opinion.

 

As Peg Wells and Jackie Leloff have found balance in their lives, we, too, embraced  therapeutic benefits of creativity. We are adjusting to a new reality and we will continue to find solutions in order to support the arts, to the artists, to our patrons, to our friends and family and to the wider community.

Looking back, previous exhibitions featured more than 100 new works of art.  It was heartwarming to find that moving forward during a partial reopening that artists delivered 76 new works of art  in original oils, watercolors, and other media as well as new pottery and bronzes with everyone following reopening safety guidelines. 

Since reopening in June  we are working much harder for the artists than in normal times. Indeed, the pandemic crisis is a strange situation for everyone all over the world. 

The arts have always helped people to cope in dark times. We are grateful for the artists who used their time in isolation to create, to be more hopeful,  to be even more connected to each other, to reaching out even more to the gallery, sharing their art stories and caring even more deeply for all the citizens of the world.”  –-D. Fairweather, gallerist
