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.

Marigold  dichroic fused glass art by Carolyn Myers Lindberg 

10 in. diameter

On exhibition August 1st through August 25th


Close up  to show the flash and sparkle of the marigold artistic elements. Dichroic (pronounced “dye-crow-ick”) glass means two colored, from the Greek words “di” for two, and “chroma” for color. It was named because of its fantastic multicolored and reflective properties.





On exhibition August 1st through August 25th

“Window in the Sun” handmade fused glass by Fedor Zubanov

12 x 12 in.

“You can easily find a 4-section window in the center of the plate. But if you look closer you notice that there are no clear boundaries: this window is just a combination of colors within diagonal chevrons. Sometimes halves of chevrons – sunny rays – simply go through the window, sometimes they reflect and change the color. Those reflections create the illusion of the window shape.”




“This clock was done using the original glass fusing technique  called 3-D chevrons.

Edges of this clock are professionally hand worked to look straight and shiny.”  FZ





“Every item is produced  in the USA. Every item shines like a small sun.”

Artist Mike Mason in his studio.

In order to protect the health and safety our guests, our community, and our staff (who are over the age of 65 and are deemed to be a high health risk), the Gallery is closing its doors to visitors through April.

“This decision comes after careful review of guidance from public health authorities and projections for the spread of COVID-19, and reflects our desire to ensure it is not contributing to transmission of the disease which could overwhelm our health care system. This is a difficult decision, but we are confident is the right choice.”

Please re-visit our previously published blog post articles throughout this time.

Questions or concerns, please email fairweatherkd@gmail.com.

Thank you for your understanding.


March 14, 2019 Question to the Fairweather artists.

Q: “Here is an idea. Please send images of the art being created in your studio during this crisis. We will publish  a blog post and keep it updated as you share with us what you are creating. Are you interested? Let me know your thoughts.”




“I am painting in my art studio.” Toni Avery


“Social distancing doesn’t require you to become a shut-in. I go outside to paint,”  en plein arist Emily Miller.


“In addition, I’m finishing up a few smaller baskets for a large collaborative display of reclaimed fishing rope ( ghost net collected by Cape Lookeout rangers).basket sculptures called Undersea Garden.”  Emily Miller


“I like this idea! You can use this one and will try to send a few more. Thanks for the up date about the gallery,” artist/ Professor Emeritus of Art Pacific University Jan Shield.



“It is my plan to create tomorrow, I would love to send some pictures while I am creating! I have been wondering how things will go with all of this virus worry.  If there is anything I can do to be of help, please don’t hesitate to ask.”  Rene’e Hafeman, jewelry designer.


“Here is an image of a book I just published in early 2020 on a series Weekend Projects  I tried to provide day-by-day instructions different projects which use one common element: stringers. Thanks for the proposal. I think it’s very useful to have a venue that helps especially during the crisis. I’m working now on a couple of new big works and will share photos as soon as I have them completed,”  fused glass artist Fyodor Zubanov.


“I have scheduled kids art on-line classes (ages 8-18) all week in three different time zones: Central Europe / US East Coast / and US West Coast time. We are learning how to draw puffins!”   Leah Kohlenberg www.leahkohlenberg.com/book-online



“Hope everyone is staying healthy! I’m staying home painting.” Pam Haunschild

“This strange virus has affected everyone.  We are 3 weeks behind the Italians infections so things are going to get way more interesting.  I appreciate the information and understand if other schedules need to be altered.  Thank you for keeping me updated. Stay safe!” Jan Rimerman, Artist/Art Administrator.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has  issued guidelines for “community mitigation strategies” to limit the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, which include recommendations for “social distancing”—a term that epidemiologists are using to refer to a conscious effort to reduce close contact between people and hopefully stymie community transmission of the virus.



  • Be in nature. Breathe fresh air. Notice things about the world around you that you didn’t see before.
  • Start birdwatching. Coronavirus hasn’t bothered the birds. Find out what species nest near you, dust off your binoculars if you’ve got ’em and download a birdwatching map.
  • Make art. Whether it’s a page out of a coloring book or paint-by-numbers masterpiece, a knitted scarf or a piece of pottery, creating will ease your mind and keep your fingers nimble.



“Thank you with the list of things to do.  It’s one of the most uplifting ones I’ve received,” artist Sandy Visse

About the artist.

Bill Baily lives with his wife, Donna, in Lake Oswego, Oregon.  They have a weekend place on the Oregon coast. Although he was a professional pharmacist, he has also been an artist for over forty-six years. Bill is now retired and he spends his time painting.

Bill studied with Nelson Sandgren, Charles Mulvey, Perry Acker, Phil Tyler and George Hamilton. He has had work included in the annual Northwest Watercolor Society Show in Seattle, Artists of Oregon Exhibit at the Portland Art Museum, and numerous Watercolor Society of Oregon Biannual exhibits. He has contributed his paintings to the Cascade Aids Auctions where his work was usually selected to be in their published catalogues.

“Patch work Quilt”  fused glass plate by Fedor Zubanov

“This rectangular plate looks like a patchwork quilt. It’s composed of absolutely different pieces: thin and thick “threads”, chevrons, tapestry, colorful rectangles, etc. Colors are transitioning from orange red to green blue, and in general this could be a bright accent to any room.  Handmade.”  9″x11″  Fedor Zubanov


“Window in the Sun’s Ray” fused glass plate by Fedor Zubanov

“You can easily find a 4-section window in the center of the plate. But if you look closer you notice that there are no clear boundaries: this window is just a combination of colors within diagonal chevrons. Sometimes halves of chevrons – Sunny rays – simply go through the window, sometimes they “reflect” and change the color. Those reflections create the illusion of the window shape.

This plate was done using the original glass fusing technique 3D Chevrons. Edges of this plate are professionally cold worked and look straight and shiny.  Handmade.”  12 “x12” Fedor Zubanov


Fedor Zubanov and Irina Nazarkina, Northwest fused glass artists, handcraft decorative plates, bowls and vases, using various techniques known as glass fusing. “Excellent fused glass work. The beveled edges are perfect and show that a lot of love was put into this piece. Most of the glass is semi-transparent.”


Square plate rotation series in red and teal, 8 x 8, fused glass plates by Fedor Zubanov


“A couple of new square plates. In these plates I combined solid color triangular glass pieces and a waived square in the center. These pieces are separated by sets of stripes. Each set contains 3 light opalescent and 2 transparent stripes. The resulting pattern imitates rotation of the square in the center.” Fedor Zubanov

By joining different pieces of glass at almost melting temperatures Fedor Zubanov and Irina Nazarkina create one-of-a-kind artworks.



“This bowl looks like a malachite vessel because it’s made of a special type of murrini. This murrini imitate stone structure while being fused with another glass. The edges and the bottom are professionally cold worked. This bowl can be used for candies, salads, snacks and other cold food.” 3.5″ x 5.5″ (top diameter) Fedor 



Fun Facts about Fedor Zubanov:

Works at Mircosoft.

Originally from Moscow.

Author of  e-books on creating fused glass.


“e-book From scrap to Artworks with a vitrigraph…159 pages, more than 170 illustrations and photos. All temperatures and dimensions specified in both metric and US systems.  It could be considered as containing two separate books: the first one describes work with vitrigraph for making stringers, cane and murrini. Also it explains how to manage colors, get predictable results, and effectively use glass; the second one contains detailed instructions for 11 different projects of various complexity, and 6 other projects provided for your inspiration without detailed instructions. All those projects doesn’t require a vitrigraph.  


So, this book is addressed to two groups of readers: those who want to enhance their vitrigraph skills, and for those, who want to make projects with stringers, rods and murrini available in the market.” Fedor Zubanov




“e-book Weekend projects:  Stringers in glass fusing…For many of us glass fusing is a hobby and we can dedicate time for it only at weekends. So, it would be great to have instructions which allow to complete a relatively complex project in 2-3 days. In this book I tried to provide day-by-day instructions for four different projects which use one common element: stringers.”  Fedor Zubanov



“e-Book: Mondrian pattern in glass … describes a creation of nice looking fused glass plates in Mondrian style. ​There are 40 pages and a lot of illustrations. All recommendations are provided for COE96 glass, but firing schedules have notes for COE90 glass as well. This book is useful for both novice and experienced fusers. Tips will allow you to make professionally looking glass works with stripes, squares/rectangles/triangles and other geometrical patterns.”  Fedor Zubanov


Thu, Aug 29, 8:18 PM (7 days ago)

Hello Fairweather,

I visited your gallery last week and I talked about glass works for your exhibitions in September – November. I would be happy to present 3-5 of my works in September. I will bring them to you (I live near Seattle, so it takes about 5 hours only.)  Fedor Zubanov


Done!  Delivered and installed.  Thu, Sep 04, 11:00AM (1 day ago)  Welcome! Fedor Zubanov
