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.

Sharing a few August artist grace notes:

Artists were prepared for the emotional challenges that come with a predominantly remote means for creating work during COVID-19.

“One unforeseen emotional benefit of the pandemic has been the recognition of an innate need for authenticity. The trust we place in each other at these vulnerable moments gives us a better sense of empathy.”  A. Schneider/ August, 2020

“Thank you for the article on following your passion. It was a wonderful read. I agree, more than ever, supporting artists and small businesses are  important. I know you are continuing to have support from visitors and your community.  I’m nearly finished with a piece that works well with your future shows. Coming soon. Best regards. –Diane Copenhaver

“Primordial Bay” abstract by Martha Lee

30″ x 30″

Thank you for your lovely note about my painting “Primordial Bay.” It was so uplifting. I have read it over at least 25 times and will read it every day. How thoughtful of you to reach out to me. I do hope that the planning for ongoing exhibitions is going well.  I  thank you that my paintings will be continued to be welcome in your elegant gallery. I treasure our connection to the arts.”   –Martha  Lee

Fairweather Gallery has been the place for cultural art gatherings, art talks, music events, art education, artist socializing,; indeed, it is a perfect event space to throw that perfect party. First and foremost,  however, it is an art gallery.

Throughout the years, many people have visited the gallery, locals and people from out of town, to enjoy the beautiful surroundings, art, music, wine tastings, listen to an inspiring artist talk, and, oftentimes, to offer a comforting ear about a good works event (Arctic Light/ Beaver Tales/ Ode to the Tides).

And, so, it goes forward, while maintaining balance during a pandemic within the arts community, Fairweather continues to develop a list of best practices following approved guidelines. The Gallery has taken into account a continuing shift moving on …with more steps forward with each passing month in offering after-hours arts events. What is on hold, until there is a containment of the virus is the LIVE music and wine tastings,  thereby keeping everyone safe and healthy.

What remains, and, truly, what is most important, is the art, artists, uplifting stories, and sense of community while observing social distancing practices.

“As Fairweather House and Gallery- amid continued concerns – progresses forward towards regaining events while practicing health and safety measures and exercising agility among the changes that impact being open. Much is still needed in the recovery; however, the arts community is working together to be resilient and overcome the ongoing challenges. Indeed, art saves.”  D. Fairweather, gallerist

“Crowded Kindesses” by Emily McNeil

24″ x 24″ oil on canvas

$1600

 

Emily McNeil’s  art education consisted of taking classes and workshops, reading books, watching videos of her favorite artists, going to museums and galleries and studying her grandfather’s copies of Art of the West.

 

She is grateful to Brent Burkett, who nurtured her in his quiet way through the techniques of “real art”; to Tom Browning, who told her he thought she could make it as an artist; to Morgan Weistling, for his kindness and critique that still makes the artist smile to think of; to Scott Christensen, for the abundance of knowledge he shared; and to Dan Gerhartz for his teaching on color temperature, his critiques, and his inspiring life and paintings.

Inspirational quote:

“…All things await the sensitive and imaginative mind that may be aroused to pleasurable emotion at sight of them. This is beauty. The art student that should be, and is so rare, is the one whose life is spent in the love and culture of his personal sensations, the cherishing of his emotions, never undervaluing them, the pleasure of exclaiming them to others, and an eager search for their clearest expression.” – Robert Henri

“Pink Garland”  by Emily McNeil

6″ x 8″ oil on canvas

$295

Symbolically, a pink rose means perfect happiness,

June has long been considered an ideal month for roses. Not only are they in season, but they are a popular choice for still life paintings.

 

“Sweet Garland” by Emily McNeil

6″ x 8″ oil on canvas

$295

Symbolically,  a white rose signifies innocence, purity, and new beginnings.

 

To create art.                                                                                               

One needs time. Long stretches of time.

Let  yourself have this time, without media distractions.

Let all your senses participate in the moment. I

t is this elevated way of seeing that gives you something to share.

What you see most deeply is the thing to create from.

Take from your experience and make it your own. 

Arrange things the way they were in your daydream.

 

 

 

“Through her paintings, Emily McNeil invites you to see the world through her perspective of beauty and elegance, of exquisite light and rich color. Her trained eye and disciplined skill are blended with an alluring charm, making her paintings delight your senses and touch your heart.”
