A show that reflects on the mood of the monochromatic light, shadows, and atmosphere in the NW.”

Exhibiting NW artists Leopoldine “LEO” Brew, Agnes Field, Patricia Clark-Finley, Dorota Haber-Leligh, Ron Nicolaides, Neal Maine, Jan Rimerman, and Vanessa K. Stokes.

“Watching animals on television is extremely different than seeing them in their own habitat. 

Experiencing the fight for life and survival has given me a great respect for the wild animals of the Serengeti in Africa.    

My safari group saw the animals hunting, being hunted and living together in a complicated environment.” Jan Rimerman

 

Lioness mixed media by Jan Rimerman

The defined muscles and grace of the lioness in the painting doesn’t even hint at the clever maneuvers that she designs to feed her family.     

24″ x 24″ on panel

 

Watching the powerful discipline of the Lioness in the hunt allowed me to see the determination of survival.  Experiencing the lives of the African animals was not always pleasant or beautiful. 

Witnessing the patient dance of the hunt in the Ngorongoro Crater was both wild, beautiful and horrifying.  Luckily an attentive zebra made the warning call and, although the cubs went hungry, a wildebeest’s life was spared.” JR

 

 

 

Cape Buffalo mixed media by Jan Rimerman

The wild beauty in this painting is exhibited in the wonderful shapes found in the animal’s distinctive physical characteristics.

24″ x 24″ on panel

The Cape Buffalo has an entirely different kind of wild beauty.  This animal’s strength, shape and power is evident in its stare and stance. Although this 1,800lb. animal is a vegetarian, it can ward off lions, leopards, hyenas and African wild dogs.

It is considered one of the top most dangerous animals to encounter.  The cape buffalo exudes power as well as a stubborn personality. The snorts and sounds of this animal’s hooves are a good reminder to stay in the vehicle.  JR

 

Thomson’s Gazelle mixed media by Jan Rimerman

This painting captures the alert tension that is ever present.

24″ x 24″

The Thomson’s Gazelle has a beauty and grace of a different kind.  They live in herds alongside the zebras and wildebeests. They have many predators so their acute senses of sight, smell and hearing work in their favor.  They are the fastest and nimblest of all antelope and can reach speeds of between 40-60 miles per hour. 

 

Observing a herd running across the plains is like watching a ballet of well-proportioned muscle moving in synchronized rhythm.  The Thomson’s gazelles are known for their acrobatic leaps which confuse their predators and make them more difficult targets.”  JR

  

 

 

Jan Rimerman studied art at the City University in London, at Willamette University, Portland State University and at the University of Washington. Her work is found in ten books. Her art pieces are all painted on top of an underpainting of powdered charcoal on heavy watercolor paper.  Twenty-two layers of transparent fluid acrylic are applied to create a feeling of three-dimensionality and luminescence.

Jan is the Visual Arts Coordinator of the Lakewood Center, the Art Director of the LO Reads Program, the Director of Rock…Paper…Turtle…Art for Wetlands in partnership with The Wetlands Conservancy & the Director of the Rain Spark Gallery.   Jan’s art is well known for unusual perspectives and narrative.  She uses it for presentations promoting the arts and culture while raising awareness for the World Wildlife Fund and for clean water in Tanzania.

 WILD BEAUTY exhibition

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.

Welcoming  encaustic artist Claudia Fuenzalida Johns.

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 in their work but they use different techniques and the way they see it is distinctively unique.

“Nature can be beautiful in many ways.  My life consciously includes travel adventures whether in my own backyard or abroad.  The paintings for this exhibit include some of the wild beauty I was privileged to experience up close and personal in Kenya and Tanzania. Learning and understanding the animal hierarchy, the survival skills of each species and the interconnectedness of their lives allows their wild beauty to be even more vivid.” Jan Rimerman

“Sunflowers at Dawn”  mixed media by Jan Rimerman

36 x 36 x 1.75″ $1800

During this spring the Botanical Collection was created. The colors became brighter as the events unfolded.  The new work creates an escape into color and organic shapes.”  

OVER and UP exhibition

Through Sept. 26th

Fairweather House & Gallery

Seaside, Oregon

 

“OVER and UP” is extremely significant during this time period.  People in this time frame are searching for answers, safety and reassurance. For me, painting these bright and lively botanicals is my response to the hardships that each of us are tackling right now.  While getting lost in the design and applying the cheerful colors it lifts my spirits and brings me “Over & Up” beyond the immediate moment.”  Jan Rimerman

 

This new series is saucy & ready to brighten up the world. Each piece begins with a powdered charcoal under painting with an ink drawing drawn over it.  Transparent fluid acrylics are painted on top in many layers to create the luminescence & dimension.

Each piece is a party of movement and energy.  This is very different from my typical work, but the freedom of pattern and bright colors gives me hope of a more joyous time in our lives.  My time spent in France runs through these compositions.  The beautiful luminescent light tickling the sunflowers while they are gently dancing in the warm breeze is one of my best memories.”

We are concerned about the fires right now. Dave’s stone sculpture studio was evacuated. As of this minute, it is still standing. Our home & my studio and the area close to it are at level #2. I have the turtle tubs out for a fast evacuation & our “to go” bags in the car. Jan

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.

Opening Reception

Grace notes received

“I read that you have survived the quarantine. It has really been a real test for all of us!! We are coming over and I have some new work. If my husband and I could help in any way we would be more than willing. Best wishes and looking forward to seeing you.” Peg Wells

 

“I hope that everything with the re-opening is going smoothly. I’m selecting new work for you. I will bring the new art in June if that works for you. In addition,  I will have new Plein Air for the gallery that I will do while I’m up there this summer. Thanks so much for what you do. All the best.”  Victoria Brooks

“Hope the re-opening goes as smoothly as possible.

Honestly, I have only been off the property 7 times since March.

Not really comfortable with the opening of the state yet. If we can make an appointment that is safe for everyone, I will drive down with the art that I have for you.

I do want to make everything successful for you and the gallery, so let’s make a plan.” Jan Rimmerman

 

“Hope plans are going well for the gallery.

I have some ideas for display at your gallery. I can get choices to you in June.

I will make an appointment with you to show you some in person.

Thank you for supporting the arts as we all progress through these changing times.”   Susan Romersa

 

 

“Welcome back to this new unsettled world we are living in!  I am glad that your gallery is opening back up, I ‘m sure it’s not been without a lot of new planning and hopefully some joy to be back at it!
Before all of this hit, I was to bring some of my ceramic work and was planning to do so for the June and August shows. 
Please let me know if there is time or space (!) available for me to bring up to 3 pieces and if so, when could I schedule a time to deliver?
My schedule is not as full as it used to be and I would love to make a trip to the beach if that is a possibility!”  Sandy Visse

 

“Just checking in. How are the gallery plans coming for this summer? We have booked a flight to Oregon in June. At any rate we will see you shortly thereafter.  Hopefully things will be open for the usual July Art Walk.”  Paul and LJ.

“Mary and I should be able to make a delivery run to Seaside over the weekend or early next week.

What works for you?  I will have salad bowls and burl show pieces. Mary has paintings.

Let us know when you would like is to show up and we’ll time it right.”  Tom Willing and Mary Burgess

 

It is our hope to continue to bring you informative and regional art notes that provide unique knowledge and inspiration for moving through this extraordinary period of change in our lives. 

 

Fairweather House and Gallery thanks you for your continued support, patience, and assistance as we navigate the ever-changing mandates and requirements.
The more we work together, the faster our community can begin to recover from this crisis.
Strategies that the gallery is implementing to adapt to changes and well being.
These are temporary practices aimed at keeping our community healthy.

Opening Mon, Thu, Fri, Sat, and Sun 12-3:pm

Closed Tue and Wed

Moving forward our hours will remain limited until there is a convincing containment of the coronavirus.

Staying safe.

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

“Hedge Rows of Devon” by Jan Rimerman mixed media 36 x36

 

Fairweather House and Gallery

612 Broadway St. located in the Historic Gilbert Block Building

 

CONTRASTS, an exhibition, showing art from selected regional artists using bright, abstract palettes – electric yellows, brilliant blues, wild reds and shining greens, as well as abstract monotones found only in the natural world.

Featuring contemporary illustrative artists Bill Baily, Gregory Bell, Tanya Gardner, Agnes Field, Sharon Kathleen Johnson, Jan Rimerman, Renee Rowe, Russell J. Young and Zifen Qian.

Jan Rimerman is inspired by her 2019 travels to India & the British Isles.

“The “Contrasts” in this new collection of mixed media layered paintings expresses the stark differences of color, shape, light, and texture as well as the weather, the two distinct cultures, and the people. Travel opens minds.” Jan Rimerman

 

Contrasts on view through September 25.

 

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.

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

 

MAKING WAVES opening artist reception. July 2019

Photo collage by Linda Fenton-Mendenhall, Seaside First Saturday Art Walk photographer.

 

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.
