A round of applause for BLOOM, an exhibition at Fairweather’s throughout the month of April! You  introduced an imaginative way of displaying many diverse  NW artists.  The artwork brings together design drama in extraordinary intimacy and charm that creates a feeling of a springtime garden stroll. Thank you!” — Bonnie W.

Q: What is salon style display in the context of a gallery exhibition, you ask?

A:  Hanging art salon-style can be a dramatic and brave  way to decorate a wall, placing a range of art with unusual dimensions to create an interesting effect.   Neutral walls are considered a perfect way to cleanse the palette for the eye in  salon-style display.

From artist Kathryn Delany ‘HEART SAVER’

“One of my strengths is the ability to match my style of art to the requests and dreams of clients. I developed a style in decorative finishes that was unique and reflects a love of layered finishes. I love to use a lot of metallics in my work too. The metallics reflect light and creates a sense of luxury.”–Kathryn Delany

Fairweather House and Gallery
612 Broadway
Nov. 5th. 5-7:pm
Opening reception for the exhibition titled A SIMPLE APPROACH.

The essence of every sanctuary one creates in the approaching season can be distilled down to the principles of classic neutrals, materials that endure and soothing sight lines in art pulled from a serene environment.

Arriving to meet and greet art patrons are regional artists Lori Wallace-Lloyd, Denise Joy McFadden and Kathryn Delany.

Lori Wallace-Lloyd will be offer a Painting Seaside LIVE ™ demonstration!

“After doing a lot of bird drawings this summer, I’m back to oil painting this fall and I am doing another shell where I have experimented and lightened up the background. The shell that I have sent you is a drawing in pastel pencil, that inspired doing one in oils.”–Lori


Lori Wallace-Lloyd joined the Navy at 17, becoming the first female helicopter aircrew member in 1977. Later, after becoming an officer, she became fascinated by Italian painting, having been stationed for 3 years in Sicily. Though she had a family and career she began the long road of classical art training, eventually studying in the Bay area with several renowned portraitists including Virgil Elliott.

The rigorous atelier training built the skills needed to produce the realist figurative work, for which she has won many awards, including Grand prize at the Portland Rose Festival and Best of Show with the St. Louis Artist’s Guild.

Denise Joy McFadden will introduce a new woven watercolor and will speak about the art of weaving two paintings to create one original work of art.


The artist especially enjoys the spontaneity, as well as the risks encountered with watercolor. Denise Joy McFadden often works on dampened paper and mixes color directly onto her painting, rather than the palette. This technique creates wonderful effects and textures, which make no two paintings the same.

As a signature member of the Southwest Washington Watercolor Society and the Northwest Watercolor Society, Denise is an award winner and her work has been displayed in many shows. She is also a member of Watercolor West and the National Watercolor Society.
