Opening reception for the exhibit Rain or Shine, juxtaposed an array of art, images and voices in a way that resonated with the spring season at the beach.

Two artists offered a Seaside Painting LIVE ™ episode,  starting with a blank canvas then completing a quick finish during the April Seaside First Saturday evening at Fairweather’s. The free event offered art patrons a marvelous opportunity to watch masters create, in addition,  visitors enjoyed LIVE music by Shirley 88, artists lectures, guest speakers, wine tasting and more.

And, so, too, a patron’s grace note received:

“Thank you for a delightful evening of artworks, artist presentations, gifts, music and hors d’oeuvres. We enjoyed the entire event from start to finish. Your gallery is delightful and therapeutic. We will visit again on our next trip. Thank you for wrapping the artworks safely for our travels. With much appreciation” –A. R. Joseph, Ed. D, educational consultant.

Local Lore:

The  Broadway Bridge spans the Necanicum River which is nearly 84 miles long.  The Necanicum one of the most healthy rivers in Oregon for it has never had a dam built over it.

East on Broadway, over the bridge, towards Highway 101 (the Pacific Coast Highway), is the historic Gilbert District, an area that oftentimes  is called “adult land” with boutiques, restaurants, fine art galleries and the famous Seaside antique mall.

West on Broadway, over the bridge, towards the ocean (the other side),  is an area sometimes called “fun land” for it houses an arcade, a carousel, paddle boats to rent, salt water taffy and ice cream shops, bumper cars and more, an amazing boardwalk and, for course, the fabulous Seaside beach!

The  Broadway Bridge,  spanning the Necancium River, is nearly 84 miles long.  The Necanicum one of the most healthy rivers in Oregon for it has never had a dam built over it.

Seaside was the first ocean resort town in Oregon.
