Pastel by Kathy Moberg

 

 

What a journey it has been! I have painted for fifty years now and each painting is still a new adventure…a mystery to be solved. My work evolves in layers of texture and color. Sometimes I paint from life or from a series of sketches or photos letting my imagination take hold from there.

A specific style is not something I worked to develop but came quite naturally. I have a light touch and rather loose stroke. My mantra is, ‘Every stroke affects every other stroke, every line affects every other line, every color affects every other color’. I approach painting from a more abstract, broader perspective, and work the entire canvas at once rather than small areas at a time. The first layer is usually painted in watercolor using the compliment in the following layers of pastel, often letting the watercolor show through to build continuity throughout the work.

 

One of my favorite quotes by Marc Chagall is “If I create from the heart everything works: if from the head, almost nothing works.”

Since the mid 80’s I have been painting with a community of women artists. Some women have left our group, and others have continued through the years, opening their arms and hearts to newcomers. In turn, they instill new and fresh ideas. We share our lives, our hopes, our aspirations…and our art. Painting connects us. These women sustain my art. My inspiration is enhanced by their physical presence…coming together to paint. Their mentoring spirit, their tenacity and perseverance gives me the boost I need to press on. This spiritual presence carries me through the slumps and the moments of self-doubt.

These women create a momentum for me. They offer themselves to the nurturing of art, and in so doing enrich my life.   Kathy Moberg

Exploring New Surfaces, an exhibition curated by Agnes Field, Astoria based artist with a Master’s Degree in Studio Fine Art from New York University, through October 31st.

Artist, curator Agnes Field

 

“The works included in this exhibit use either new materials or methods and techniques to amplify the meaning in the content of their art. Adding or embedding new materials to the surface creates surprise, and occasionally, deeper interpretation and understanding of the subject.” –Agnes Field

 

 

October  exhibit includes Leah Kohlenberg, Kathy Moberg and Carmela Newstead.

 

 

Agnes Field discusses the art of Linda Moberg during the opening reception of “Exploring New Surfaces” at Faiweather’s.

“Cauldron” by Leah Kohlenberg

 

Leah Kohlenberg,  artist statement:

I have been drawing and painting for 18 years, but the work you see today is entirely new for me.

These pastels and oil paintings are inspired by the Oregon coast, but the colors are wild and bright (sometimes wacky) and the land forms are intentionally abstract. This is to allow some of the raw brushwork and initial power that comes from an artistic first impression. It’s also an attempt to share the more vibrantly colorful world that’s in my head onto the canvas.

I started painting in my 30s, so have always had a sense of being “behind” – there were people who’d been doing art much longer than me, who knew more about the craft than I, who were way better artists than I. As I practiced my skills, I also did a lot of painting over my first attempts until I made the work “correct.”

My lack of confidence resulted in a stuttering “over-painting” that could lose the initial rawness and beauty of the initial strokes. I sometimes missed what I had created in the first pass, and at the same time, I didn’t trust it.

Now 18 years later, this series is an attempt to trust and honor that first pass. You are the first people to see these works. They have all been made this year, with this venue in mind. Many thanks for being the number one audience.

Review

“The work inspired by the Oregon coast artist uses raw brush work and unexpected colors to focus on the initial power that comes from the first artistic impressions.  An experienced painter for over 18 years  Kohlenberg also teaches drawing to many local professionals.”

Agnes Field II

Here is the work on paper and other pieces for the exhibit opening May 6. I have one slightly larger on panel…similar image and color. –Agnes Field

Artist Statement:

“This work is assembled from my surrounding using ephemeral and commonly accessible materials, such as styrofoam, plastic, cardboard, wood and fabric. Tied to the contemporary legacy of Arte Povera, the work attempts to create intrinsic objects that minimize the boundary between everyday experience and the commercialization of formal practice.” –AgF

For more about the artist please go to http://www.fairweatherhouseandgallery.com/ …artists/ …Agnes Field

Q: What is the art movement called, Arte Povera, you ask?
A: Arte Povera means literally ‘poor art’ but the word poor here refers to the movement’s signature exploration of a wide range of materials beyond the traditional ones of oil paint on canvas, bronze, or carved marble. Materials used by the artists included soil, rags and twigs. In using such throwaway materials they aimed to challenge and disrupt the values of the commercialised contemporary gallery system.

Opening reception for HELLO…BEAVER TALES!

New original work by Fairweather resident artists Paul Brent, Mike Brown, Agnes Field, Mike Brown, Jo Pomeroy Crockett, PhD., and Neal Maine, as well as selected NW artists.

Beaver, our beloved state animal, is woefully misunderstood and blamed for dam building, flooding and munching on plants. In fact, Oregon beaver creates wetlands, habitat for salmon and create pools that keep water clean and moderate fluctuations in water flow.

They are nature’s hydrologists. There is a slow but growing appreciation and recognition of the positive benefits that beaver play in Oregon. It is time for more Oregonians to know about and celebrate our state mammal. Art exhibits are a great way to raise the profile of beaver, wetlands and Oregon artists.
The goal of the exhibition is to recognize the aesthetic and ecological significance our state animal plays in the creation and maintenance of wetland habitats.

Speaker guest speaker at Fairweather’s BEAVER TALES will be Katie Voelke, executive director of the North Coast Land Conservancy.

NCLC is a nonprofit based in Seaside, working toward a Oregon Coast where healthy communities of people, plants and wildlife all thrive.

Please go to http://www.NCLC.org for more information about the land trust.

Katie Voelke grew up in Sacramento and earned a bachelor’s degree in biology at the University of California, Santa Cruz. She worked as a field biologist for the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife before joining NCLC as its first stewardship director in 2005; three years later, she became its second executive director.

She and her husband, Scott Kirby, are the parents of three boys. They live in Nehalem.

Seaside/ Gearhart nature photographer Neal Maine, co-founder of NCLC, North Coast Land Conservancy, will be available to meet and greet visiting artists, guests and art patrons.

Please go to http://www.fairweatherhouseandgallery.com/ …artists/… Neal Maine to view a catalog of images available. Proceeds in support of NCLC.

Seaside First Saturday Art Walk hostesses will assist with photo ops, lite bites, and beverages.

Q: What is an  Art Walk, you ask?
A: Residents and visitors alike enjoy an evening of community and culture as various art venues within walking distance of each other host art exhibits, between 5-7 p.m. with the Seaside First Saturday Art Walk. The Art Walk, celebrating 13 years in 2017, is in the historic Gilbert Block Building. It is free and open to the public. Motto: “Those that live for the arts, support the arts.”

FUN FACT:
The Gilbert District, established in 1914, celebrated 100 years of rich history and timeless tradition in 2014. The historic district was awarded the 2004 Oregon Main Street Downtown Gateway Award.

The area is now home to shops, restaurants, galleries and boutiques. Dedicated parking for the district is located one block West off the Pacific Coast Highway 101, on the corner of Holladay and Broadway. Next Art Walk is May 6th, 2017.
