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.

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”.

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

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

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.

Fairweather artist Carolyn Macpherson received Second Place for her “Necanicum Estuary” watercolor at the Southwest Washington Watercolor Society Spring Show!

And, too, Carolyn Macpherson will offer a Painting Seaside LIVE ™ episode on June 3rd 5-7:pm, during the opening reception for ICONIC, Seaside First Saturday Art Walk at Fairweather House and Gallery.

More about the artist and her art work:

Carolyn Macpherson, as a self-taught oil painter, readily sold her art, but wished for the training that would give her more confidence. Upon graduation from Lewis & Clark, she was hired by the local community college to teach evening art classes and. She was also active in the Washington State Arts Commission and directed the SW Washington Arts Festival.

Numerous awards and accolades followed, including showing at Sacramento art galleries, the Crocker Art Museum, wine label design awards, publications in the American Artist magazine and the book, “How Did You Paint That?”

Carolyn served as an interpretive host at Smith Rock State Park in Oregon, setting up her easel and using art to explain the region’s geology. She was commissioned to illustrate all of the interpretative displays at the Visitor’s Center, as well as the signage for the park’s hiking trails and botanical gardens. Loss of her husband has left a distinct impression on her current work, which is now softer, more atmospheric and introspective. Carolyn’s work is a reflection of her commitment to plein air painting, and the natural environment.

Happiness times three! Just in! Paper cranes by Fairweather artist Peggy Evans.

“Folding Origami Cranes– Each one a small miracle. Folding cranes can be very soothing and calming – almost meditative in nature.
Once the folds are learned a rhythm develops. A rhythm that is easy and comforting. And after going through the folds, a crane emerges.” —
Peggy Evans

Peggy Evans is a NE Portland Artist and 3rd generation Oregonian. Following graduation from Oregon State University, she enjoyed a 25 year career as a retail advertising designer and illustrator. Now she splits her time between her Garden and studio where creates new Origami Crane Designs.
