And, too…

July 3, 5-7 pm opening reception for the Fairweather exhibition PLACE BASED!!!

 

With 2020 on its way out, our top ten collection is complete!

Number 10:  Masked hostesses and patrons!

 

Number 9: Fairweather’s welcomed back visitors with the promise of a safe experience after the pandemic shutdown.

 

 

Number 8: New 2020 artists that chose Fairweather’s.

 

Number 7: A farewell to artists departing the area.

 

Number 6: We renewed our support of NCLC following the reopening after the pandemic shutdown. Indeed, in 2020, it was more important than ever to keep up with our mission.

“Fairweather House and Gallery attends to the well-being of family, community and business through an uncompromising commitment to honesty, fairness, integrity, and excellence.”

 

Number 5: Fairweather artists who made 2020 the headlines, magazine covers, and news.

 

Number 4: We continued to engage the community in uplifting artist lectures.

 

 

Number 3: We found ways to experiment on smaller projects.  Fairweather artists pivoted to make art masks. Surely, adapting is nothing new for artists know how to mold art to fit new opportunities. 

 

 

Number 2: Quarantine, although stressful, gave the Gallery time to think more about how art, and specifically, the role of art can have on the global conversation. And, so, we created a new exhibition, November’s WILD BEAUTY, after reaching out to colleagues, partners, and artists introducing art beyond regional works to engage with hopeful messaging.

 

 

 

Number One:  Fairweather virtual show. SHORE THING. All things Seaside.

 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
