PLACE-BASED Exhibition 

NW art show and sale

Fairweather House and Gallery

612 Broadway

Seaside, Oregon

An exhibition that involves a focus on the importance and uniqueness of place. 

While selecting the artworks to local context will appeal to the summertime tourists and visitors, behind the exhibit is an understanding that fosters regional artists and their connection within the community. The exhibit doubles down on a link with the history of both place and keeping close tabs on how artists are based in visual story telling.

As this holiday season is upon us, it is important for each of us to do what we can for one another – it is the ultimate gift.
Staying safe.  Staying well.

Since March, the gallery has tried to find solutions when, perhaps, others saw only losses. We have followed all the safety guidelines without whining and took an early leadership position in steadily promoting the arts, local artists, handmade goods and shopping local. We have continued delivering artist news, stories, ideas, and helped everyone stay connected through Fairweather blog posts, virtual shows, and limited attendance after hour events.  And, finally as the year 2020 is nearly ready to be boxed up and put away in the history books, we have chosen to highlight glittering light and hope amidst the past months of darkness.

We are staying home for the holidays and are looking forward to seeing you all on the other side of good in January 2021.

Enjoy the display images from ALL THAT GLITTERS show, the Fairweather December exhibition.

 WILD BEAUTY Exhibition and Art Sale

Through Nov. 24th

Featuring NW artists Leopoldine “LEO” Brew, Agnes Field, Patricia Clark-Finley, Dorota Haber-Leligh, Ron Nicolaides, Neal Maine, Jan Rimerman, and Vanessa K. Stokes, among others.

The strength of WILD BEAUTY lies in the detailed and multivariate perspectives each artist brings showing us a different viewpoint.

They all use WILD BEAUTY as the theme of their work but they use different techniques and the way they see it is distinctively unique.

 

The Fairweather’s WILD BEAUTY exhibition is finely nuanced — in the selection of works, their judicious placement and the mastery of composition and diverse spot lighting.” —KR

Gallerist Denise Fairweather draws upon her life experience in design, principally as a senior level project designer/ Allied Member of the American Society of Interior Designers.  She thinks in terms of staging when designing exhibits.

 

 

“I do see staging art as a kind of a set.  When an exhibit is set, complete with the proper lighting, signing and art on display, so to speak, I want to see a perfect scene, for the artists, of course, for the visitors.  The assembled accessories  are placed to complement the art created with a specifically appointed theme … all working together to create a perfect exhibition.”

Q: What goes into the thought process when selecting an exhibition title, you ask?

A:  An exhibition title is selected one year in advance. HELLO SUNSHINE was chosen to herald in the Indian Summer season, at time when the sun, seems to (finally) shine on the North coast lands.

 

Yet, too, as in the August 2020  exhibition, a theme became a metaphor in relation to current events happening; it became a beacon of light, artistically speaking, amidst all the the darkness in the world happening during COVID-19.

A curatorial virtual NW exhibiton titled ‘In Full Bloom’

Fairweather House and Gallery brings together artists’ works in a variety of genres and interpretations, grouping them into an on-line spectrum of theme and color.

Featuring art by Jo Pomeroy Crockett, Christine Downs, Bev Drew Kindley, Dorota Haber-Leligh, Greta Lindwood, Melissa Jander, Carmela Newstead, and Zifen Qian.

“I love flowers. If I could, I would have flowers for dessert and live in a greenhouse surrounded by them. I actually crave flowers for their lovely colors, textures, fragrance, and beauty,   D. Fairweather, galleriest

Featured floral art work includes botanical, realism, abstraction, and surrealism.

Research has found that being around flowers increases the level of compassion that they feel for others and are more willing to extend a helping hand to those in need.

Art can be purchased and picked-up by curbside appointment or delivered free locally.

Contact gallery curator @fairweatherkd@gmail.com or message on FB @fairweatherhouseandgallery

We will see you, hopefully, on the other side of the pandemic crisis.

 

 

Just viewing floral art causes joy in the same way as walking in nature and losing oneself in music.

“For if you think art is not necessary try to spend time without music, books, poems, movies and… art.”

Sharing a video recently posted by North Coast Land Conservancy.

 

 

Thank you for reading about the arts in Seaside.

**Q:  What is a garden folly, you ask?

A: A garden folly is usually considered a building or structure that is designed for decoration with no other purpose than to add a touch of whimsy or extravagance to the surrounding landscape. The term began as “a name for any costly structure considered to have shown folly in the builder” and was often named after the individual who commissioned or designed the project. The connotations of silliness or madness in this definition are in accord with the general meaning of the French word “folie”; however, another older meaning of this word is “delight.”

Photos by Linda Fenton-Mendenhall.

 

“This exhibit’s expectation lies in its possibility to present fresh, new perspectives, inspiration, experiences, reflection and even the possibility for transcendence in some way. Indeed, the meaning of “fresh start” is the beginning of a new period or step.  The North Coast land, truly, is in full springtime bloom for FRESH START, Fairweather’s March exhibition.”

Reed Grass (Diptych ea. pc. 24×24)  by Toni Avery. 

“Painter of the commonplace.”

Toni Avery Statement:

“My paintings begin where memory and emotion merge and this is where my creativity is born. As a child growing up in the small Los Angeles neighborhood of Echo Park, I was exposed to a world of art, music, and surprisingly back then, nature.

I spent countless hours outside, climbing trees, bike riding or going on endless walks over the many staircases that wind throughout the hills of Echo Park and Elysian park.  During those long summer days I became connected “to” and also a part “of” the outdoors. I would study the way the light played off of the leaves or how the rolling hills turned a deep gold; the way the wind would create waves in the tall grass and how the shadows faded to blue and purple in the late afternoon sun.

Something inside me wants to recapture those times  and I believe that is why I am fascinated by the contrast and color there may be in a shadow, or the defining opposition of a streak of light cutting through the cool darkness of the shade; the world at its most basic level.  I find the greatest joy through color, texture, shadow and light. Not perfection, but rather imperfections, limitations and nuances that bring meaning.

I’ve come to appreciate that recognizing an object and knowing it are quite different. Trying to capture the essence of ones connection to a thing, a place or a person allows it to transform into more… something unique to the artist.

My work is not seeking perfection, but rather glimpsing the beauty of the commonplace. My paintings are a reflection of times past, and of things that never change.  This is a sample of my work, my experiences, my translation of life.”

At the beach, the winter garden is usually a peaceful sanctuary in hustle and bustle of the holiday season. However, this year the front yard has hosted a three week, up to 7 trucks a day repair crew with all sorts of ladders, multiple levels of scaffolding, and surely, miles of electrical cords. Discovering, at first, a simple indoor water feature/ or rather, a small leak…the issue eventually developed into an extensive time and materials on-going repair project. I had offered to park the car outside in order to allow the garage space for material and equipment storage, every plug hosted multiple portable tool charging devices. Seeing daylight on the western front of the house today (windows and doors were previously boarded up) and seeing cedar shingles on the exterior curved walls… the end is in sight. Thankful for the insurance company who has covered: Mt. St. Helens volcano eruption repair (we lived 14 miles away); boating death; 1996 Portland flooding issue; gallery destruction in a 2007 windstorm and this current matter. Thankful for the contractor who was referred, who pulled together a crew from his home building company (has built ten homes in the Reserve). “Basically, we have used all the tools and equipment to build a complete house other than the plumbing on this repair.”

I would highly recommend the contractor and his crew, as they have proven themselves knowledgeable and efficient in the task associated with this water search and destroy repair project. PM for contractor and insurance references.

“Pinecone” pen and ink art by Dorota Haber-Lehigh. Handmade shell tree and hand sewn silk and seed pearl pillow. New hammered copper, gold and silver earrings by Cher Flick for Joanie and ME.

“This collection of jewelry is inspired by Joanie’s fun yet classy style. The earrings and bracelets are simple in design, light weight and are made of mixed metal, including sterling silver, pewter, brass, gold filled, copper, gemstones and pearls. I live and handcraft all of the jewelry in Oregon. I received my Graduate Gemology degree from the Gemological Institute of America  and have many years of experience working with diamonds, gemstones and other boutique jewelry.  In memory of Joanie, my mother, I will be donating 10% of sales to OHSU Knight Cancer Institute.”
