Grace note received from artist Bev Drew Kindley:

“Thanks for choosing some of my paintings for the Sense Of Place show!”   

 

Artist Carolyn Macpherson has offered several Painting Seaside LIVE ™ episodes at Fairweather’s!

 

Last month, the artist explained why color was added,  why the composition changed and so on.  Patrons watched and realized how much effort goes into one painting and how unique the process really is.

Q: What is a Painting Seaside LIVE ™ episode, you ask?

A: Fariweather House and Gallery has had the privilege to offer do painting demonstrations, titled Painting Seaside LIVE ™ during the Seaside First Saturday Art Walks. Resident artists have been very generous, as it is a compliment to be asked, and they always immediately respond with an enthusiastic, “yes” when asked to perform a painting episode.

 

“Painting is a passion, and the Painting Seaside LIVE ™ process gives the artists the chance to share this passion with the onlookers. Artists enjoy the opportunity being authentic in what they are experiencing. Surely, the LIVE episodes, sponsored by Fairweather House and Gallery, are, truly, one of the ways that artists “live the process” and help patrons grow to appreciate art, as well.” D. Fairweather, gallerist.

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.

“As the hectic holiday season approaches, we seek beauty, in its solitude and silence, as well as seek time with family and friends.”

 

SEEK, Fairweather’s opening reception December art exhibition featured Duane Bolster, master harp builder and his harp petting zoo. For nearly 50 years, he worked in operating rooms and Intensive Care Units. He witnessed the wonderful healing and soothing effects that harp music had on the children he cared for, and on their parents. He won The Hero award from CCA “For Creating a Magnificent Harp for the Music Program”.

 

Featured December artist Renee Rowe offered an artist’s talk during the opening reception of SEEK. The artist, an Oregonian, spoke about being inspired by the beauty of nature.  She produces abstract art by following her heart. For the artist, celebrating art and life are inseparable.

Anny Sears, fellow floral artist, spoke about the understanding of florography and how it magnified the energy of Mike Mason’s art.

 

“The aster is the flower of the month for September. In the language of  asters represent afterthought and sentimental remembrance. COLOR IT FALL has ne thinking of  the light of summer…. and starting of the light moving towards the glow of autumn.” –Anny Sears

 

“I really enjoyed speaking to all the artists and, especially to you. Thank you for all that you do for the arts. CHEERS!” –Anny

 

Anny Sears visits with artist Carolyn Macpherson, who offered a Seaside Painting LIVE ™ episode during the opening reception of COLOR IT FALL at Fairweather’s on Sept. 2nd.

 

 

Star of Bahai by Mike Mason

This image is of a 9 point star. It is a symbol of faith. The back ground is composed of hydrangea representing: devotion, and remembrance.
Queen Anne’s lace, historically representing: haven, protection, and “I will return”.
Cosmos line the star. They represent: modesty and love of a virgin.
Rhododendron signifies romance, first love and moderation.
Tulips accent the stat points with perfect love and “happy years”.
The center of the star is a Gerbera daisy. Historically the flower represents sadness. This part is special, because the emotional heart is one that we all share. Examining ones center and letting it bloom is truly the origin of Love.
