Painting Seaside LIVE event by Paul Brent.

LIVE music by Shirley 88 throughout the evening.

 

Color, texture, form, light & shadow are important in Jan’s creations.  Beginning with a painting of powdered charcoal lends the finished painting a hint of textural mystery.  Rimerman occasionally adds & molding paste which gives a physical three dimensional aspect which heightens with the additional thin layers of transparent fluid acrylic paint.  As many as 22 layers of paint are applied on top of the initial black and white powdered charcoal foundations. Building up these various textures & color unveil hidden images in the different lights of the day & season.  The work presents something fresh each time you view it.

 

Rimerman studied art at the City University in London, at Willamette University, Portland State University and at the University of Washington.  She studied closely with Carl Hall and Robert Hess at Willamette University in Salem and has a great respect for both artists.  Jan exhibits her work at the Portland Art Museum Rental Sales Gallery, the Coos Art Museum, Fairweather Gallery & at the Blackfish Gallery in La Conner, WA.

Jun 11, 2018 – Lecture notes and magazine article about “Sense of Place” artist Jan Rimerman.

Handwritten thank you notes are so infrequent in our digital age that when one is received, it makes a statement. Sharing a few recent notes received.

 

“You are such an incredible inspiration. Thank you for doing so much to care for this precious coast and its people and for your amazing contributions to the planet. With deep gratitude.” Katie Voelke, Executive Director, NCLC, North Coast Land Conservancy, June 2019.

 

Katie Voelke, Executive Director/ North Coast Land Conservancy at Fairweather’s.

 

“I count on being in your gallery one of the most thrilling things in my life.  I enjoyed the show so much.  So did my family, who made a weekend in Seaside we will never forget.  Bless you for including me in your wonderful group of artists. It was fun to see a father unable to hold back his tears while watching his daughter give her talk at Fairweather’s.”  Carolynn Wagler June 2019

 

Carolynn Wagler, artist, and daughter with Saundra, gallery hostess.

 

“Thank you for a beautiful reception.  You are a class act.  I spent some time at the beach recently and talked to many business owners about the  current show at Fairweather’s.  Many knew you and said wonderful things about you and the gallery.  What a grand entity you have created.”  Jan Rimerman  July 2019

Q: Guess who visited recently on a Monday during the high season at the beach, you ask?

A: UK, Texas, Kentucky, Hood River, Arizona, Bend, New York, Seattle Florida, Colorado, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Tacoma, Missouri, Idaho, BC and California. And too, all visited on Monday July 8, 2019!  “Lots of people in; lots of appreciation for all the hard work you do for everyone,” Joan Smith, gallery hostess.

Over the years, more than 1500 hand written thank you notes have been mailed to the featured artists after an opening reception.

Joan Smith,  Fairweather’s Director of Style, has suggested a different hostess dress code for every exhibition since 2009.  For July 2019, Joan recommended dressing in blue and white for the opening reception of MAKING WAVES.

Kathy B., Fairweather’s Director of Hospitality, has created gorgeous plates of hors d’oeuvres, for every exhibit has been distinctive. For July 2019, Kathy designed  ruffle cups of blue berries and nuts combined with chocolate brownies.

Joan Smith, a retired school principal, has proof read each unique thank you note composed for over 140 exhibitions.  Indeed, Joan  corrected the grammar in the rough draft  with a red pen, always the educator

 

See how we giggle? What, did you say, another show post, so soon???  Indeed, it be summertime.  Truly ’tis high season at the beach. Joan, Kathy and Denise.

Grace note to the artists…

 

“Shape and Color, Fairweather’s September exhibition, would not be such a success without the beautiful work created by NW hands.  The selected artists provided new work to highlight the annual fall show.  We thank them all for the extraordinary opportunity to tell a seasonal story with their art.  Truly, the artists offered new exceptional work, and by doing so, they encourage those of us in the arts, to do more.”  Fairweather Gallery
