So lovely.  So perfect.  So right.

A round of applause for BLOOM, an exhibition at Fairweather’s throughout the month of April! You  introduced an imaginative way of displaying many diverse  NW artists.  The artwork brings together design drama in extraordinary intimacy and charm that creates a feeling of a springtime garden stroll. Thank you!” — Bonnie W.

Q: What is salon style display in the context of a gallery exhibition, you ask?

A:  Hanging art salon-style can be a dramatic and brave  way to decorate a wall, placing a range of art with unusual dimensions to create an interesting effect.   Neutral walls are considered a perfect way to cleanse the palette for the eye in  salon-style display.

Artful Simplicity featured calligraphy by Penelope Culbertson.

“Those the live for the arts, surely, have traveled so much, and have seen the best of everything. If anything, the simplicity of the quiet season and the beauty of creating a thoughtful art collection are, truly, about living a life of great quality. No need to overstate it. Patrons support the arts. Indeed, we are grateful.”


The grand finale. Smiles and Art.

Indeed, more Vino Van Gogh ™  evenings surely will follow.

“You are right – VVG (Vino Van Gogh ™ will only get better! I know the experience will just need a few adjustments  (side bar: adjustments  to factor in  for last-minute registrations-with backup supplies, chairs and tables) for next time – everything is a learning experience, isn’t it?  Next time I hope to create a seascape painting for VVG. That will be fun. Thank you again for a fabulous weekend experience at Fairweather House and Gallery.” Katherine Taylor
