Artists represent the heartbeat of the Fairweather Gallery.  What we strive to put out in the arts community is  the artist’s conversations.  We have been fortunate to experience the sharing and giving of many, many creative minds  for over 11 years.

 

So, for us,  in 2018, the opportunity to continue to present an arts platform forward  is all about shining a bright light on the reminder that we are all connected… artists, patrons and community.

 On August 2nd FINDINGS, an opening art exhibition introduced past and present emerging artists at the Fairweather House and Gallery.

Q: What is an emerging artist, you ask?

A:  An emerging artist is considered an artist without commercial representation who has a dedicated art practice but has had limited opportunities to show at a gallery or non-profit spaces.

And, too,  questions to the audience at FINDINGS, the opening reception for the August exhibition, at Fairweather House and Gallery.

What is new?

What is bigger than a bread box?

What took one and 1/2 hours to install?

What took 5 men to move?

What has the number 88 to do with this piece?

 

And, the art patron who answered the question…is it the grand  piano?  The lovely lady in black.  She graciously called for a round of applause, after listening to the piano stories  (past, current and future musical lives).

August 5th, 5-7pm
Fairweather House and Gallery
612 Broadway, Seaside, OR
Opening reception for FINDINGS

Britney Drumheller arrives with new art for 2017.

 

Opening reception for the exhibit “Findings,” which juxtaposes an array of art by Emily Miller, Mariana Mace, JoAnn Pari-Mueller and Chris Boyer about the pleasures of beach combing.

“Findings,” will be the 11th annual emerging artist exhibition in the  Fairweather Gallery and will include former emerging artists Britney Drumheller, Nick Brakel, Linda Trexler, Ashley Howarth, Diane Copenhaver,  Gayle H. Seely, Kristin Qian and Rebecca Gore.

Each of the artists in attendance will discuss the development of their work and the ideas that drive their creativity.

Seaside nature photographer, ecologist and biologist Neal Maine will speak at 6 p.m. Summertime beverages and light bites.

 

Britney Drumheller has a degree from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, but moved back to her hometown of Cannon Beach – she could not leave the beauty and inspiration of the beach behind. Her work functions as symbolic expressions relating to the value people attach to the North coastal tidelands and its marine life.

 

 

Artist statement:

Art has always been a part of me; in all of its forms, it enriches my life. After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, my career in fashion design focused on fashion illustration – until my Dad suggested I try to sell some beach-inspired art. I went to the beach, studied all of the creatures in the tide pools, and tried to put onto paper my discoveries.

 

My good friends suggested I bring my sketches to Fairweather House & Gallery in Seaside, and I was so pleased to be able to put my art in such a beautiful gallery.

My favorite media is to work with markers and colored pencils. The markers I use can give the allure of looking like watercolors, but can also give you crisp, clean lines. I enjoy working within the contrast of the freedom of watercolor and the preciseness of markers. Always sketching when I have a chance, I can get lost in a sketch for hours.

“Through my art, I hope to beautifully translate the sea life that I do so dearly love and honor.” the North coastal tidelands and its marine life.”

FUN FACT:

Fairweather’s launched Britney Drumheller in an emerging artist exhibition several years ago.

Q: Where in the world is Britney’s art today, you ask?

A:  Here, there and everywhere.

Emerging artists have taken risks and embraced challenges.  

Indeed, emerging artists  are rigorous in their approach to creation and production.

Emerging Northwest artists  have some evidence of professional achievement but not a substantial record of accomplishment.  

Emerging artists introduced  at Fairweather’s are not recognized as established artists by other artists, curators, and galleries.

And, so, it goes forward!
