Painting Seaside LIVE event by Paul Brent.

LIVE music by Shirley 88 throughout the evening.

 

Color, texture, form, light & shadow are important in Jan’s creations.  Beginning with a painting of powdered charcoal lends the finished painting a hint of textural mystery.  Rimerman occasionally adds & molding paste which gives a physical three dimensional aspect which heightens with the additional thin layers of transparent fluid acrylic paint.  As many as 22 layers of paint are applied on top of the initial black and white powdered charcoal foundations. Building up these various textures & color unveil hidden images in the different lights of the day & season.  The work presents something fresh each time you view it.

 

Rimerman studied art at the City University in London, at Willamette University, Portland State University and at the University of Washington.  She studied closely with Carl Hall and Robert Hess at Willamette University in Salem and has a great respect for both artists.  Jan exhibits her work at the Portland Art Museum Rental Sales Gallery, the Coos Art Museum, Fairweather Gallery & at the Blackfish Gallery in La Conner, WA.

Box is four by four by 1 1/2 inches.

Introducing Monet Rubin and Carolyn Myers Lindberg,  Northwest fused glass artists.

“Thirty years ago I began working with cold glass (non-kiln fused) creating framed mosaic mirrors, mixed media wall hanging and inlaid stepping stone.  After a few years, I desired more creative freedom to experiment with color and discovered the myriad ways that glass reacts and changes when kiln fusing at high temperatures.

I enrolled in class at **Bullseye Glass and used on-line resources.  At about the same my children entered public school with no art, so I began to teach glass therein.  That led to 15 years mentoring high school students designing and making their own fused glass artwork. I brought my experiences to adult education classes at Pacific Northwest College of Art and continue today with a few community venues.

Along the way, I have continued to research, experiment and challenge myself to new technical and visual achievements in fusing glass.  My work ranges from practical to whimsical including bowls, plates, wearable art and wall hanging.” Monet Rubin

 

“A former ceramicist, I have been working in glass since 2012 and recently moved to Seaside from Portland.  I have enjoyed my training through classes at **Bullseye Glass and with Bullseye instructors.  Most of my work is functional because I love not only the look and feel of glass, but I want my creations to be used and held.  Over the years, I have shown have exhibited my work in several Portland area galleries. Like many artists, I find inspiration in nature, whether it is the sea, the sky or the forest and I am constantly surprised by beauty in unexpected places.  I love exploring and experimenting with color and texture that I find in the natural world close to home or in faraway places around the world.” Carolyn Myers Lindberg

 

**Bullseye Glass is a glass manufacturer in Portland, Oregon. The company is a significant supplier of raw art glass for fused glass makers

Landscape oil by Ron Nicolaides, seascape oil by Lee Munsell and sunset/ sunrise oils by Nicholas Oberling.

“A simple walk along the beach, through a forest, or up a mountain can do wonders for your mental and emotional health. You do not have to have a specific destination in mind, either – your goal is not to hike X miles, but to immerse yourself in the natural, outside world around you.  Forest, mountain and sunset bathing can rejuvenate a weary mind.”

An interesting backstory or two or three…

On a Tuesday, during the peak season in August, visitors arrived in the gallery from Nevada, Montana, Missouri, New York, Ohio, FRANCE, Texas, Colorado, KENYA and a family of five from Utah who were seeing an ocean for the very first time!!!

 

And, on a Monday, the week before, visitors arrived from New York, Maine, Maryland, N. Carolina and from Missouri…this group started a road trip across the United States duplicating the Lewis and Clark journey.

We are fortunate in that The City of Seaside has installed wide sidewalks to allow for six people to walk together. Indeed, there is a  town ordinance, Title 12,  that lists driveway, sidewalk standards and advertising within the public right-of-way.

During the recent beach volleyball tournament, an estimated 6,000 visitors arrived and walked along Broadway.  Here are a few tidbits heard as they did their walkabouts: “My, oh, my, it’s a beautiful sunny day at the beach.” “Man, I could live here.”  “Life is just better at the beach. Everything is better at the beach!”

“The work selected for your show OUTSIDE INTERESTS is especially important because that’s where I learned to use art in my healing process.”  Dr. Dale Veith, Clinical Psychologist.

“Pacific Oysters Close Up III” oil on canvas by Paul Brent

 

“Oysters Close Up  II” original oil by Paul Bent.

For OUTSIDE INTERESTS,  Fairweather’s August exhibition, the artist Paul Brent has painted studies of the Pacific Oyster.

 

Q:  Why oysters, you ask?

A:  The waters of the Pacific Northwest support a variety of productive fisheries including oysters, clams, and mussels, which thrive in the cold, nutrient-rich waters that are periodically upwelled from the deep ocean to the surface along the western coast. Seafood, and oysters in particular, are the cornerstone upon which our establishment is built. The Pacific Northwest has always been known for its relationship with the Sea, with the native peoples of the area consuming and utilizing oysters in particular for over 4000 years.

 

There is a town nearby named Oysterville located on the Long Beach Peninsula.  “Going into its 153rd year, Oysterville exists primarily as a state of mind. A walk through Oysterville can reveal the supremacy of nature; evoking connections to generations gone by, while subtly forecasting the folly of generations present and future.”
