Launching of the 100 Turtles project by artist Emily Miller, who has spent the early summer sculpting tiny ceramic sea turtles: curling and shaping two hundred front flippers and carving details into two hundred eyes. 25% of July sale proceeds in support of conservation.

“I have spent my life on the coast, and all my artwork has its roots in my love of the sea. I see the coast as a border between the known and the unknown, and a place where our connection to larger natural systems becomes clear. My artwork focuses on the delight of exploring this mysterious and beautiful environment. I found a positive voice in SeaLegacy, a conservation group creating a movement towards healthy oceans through visual storytelling. 25% of July sale proceeds in support of SeaLegacy,”  Emily Miller.

Artists will offer talks about their “Ocean Folk” artwork.

“Riverbend Birch.” 18 x 24 oil. Karen E. Lewis.

 

“Cottonwood Shoreline.” 18 x 24 oil. Karen E. Lewis.

 

“Lavender Chairs in the Shade.” 12 x 16 oil. Karen E. Lewis.

 

 

Karen E. Lewis grew up on the water, swimming, kayaking and later guiding rafting tours down the Deschutes River. She came to painting accidentally, but quickly became obsessed. Water naturally became her main subject, and a new way for her to connect with what she treasured the most. Karen’s landscapes, with their warm tones and atmospheric light, project a great love of the scenery and nature.

“Thank you so much for your letter about the Fairweather art exhibitions for 2018. I would be able to participate in Fresh Greens.”

Grace notes:

I certainly cannot claim to be an expert on art, but I know what moves me.  I enjoy Karen E. Lewis’s paintings each time I pass through our living room… somehow she’s able to capture on canvas why I love living in the Northwest.    — J. Kerekanich

 

Karen E. Lewis’s Northwest oils and watercolors have long been important elements in our collection.  Her skies are simply breathtaking and her ability to capture the luminescence of the Atlantic is truly unique.    –John & Nancy Peace

 

The serenity of the Oregon Coast, no one captures the nuances of Northwest landscapes quite like Karen E. Lewis.  Lewis’s oils unmistakably invoke a sense of place, which is why we have become enthusiastic collectors.  — David & Karen Lutes

 

For over 12 years, Fairweather House and Gallery has offered an opening reception for selected regional artists.  The exhibitions give art patrons the opportunity to listen to an artist talk, to see new original art, to view gorgeous  new displays staged in a specific theme, listen to LIVE music and to watch an artist (or two) painting LIVE.
