PLACE-BASED Exhibition 

NW art show and sale

Fairweather House and Gallery

612 Broadway

Seaside, Oregon

An exhibition that involves a focus on the importance and uniqueness of place. 

While selecting the artworks to local context will appeal to the summertime tourists and visitors, behind the exhibit is an understanding that fosters regional artists and their connection within the community. The exhibit doubles down on a link with the history of both place and keeping close tabs on how artists are based in visual story telling.

Quilted felt pillow by Cherry Harris

“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”
~ Emily Dickinson

 

And, too, just in! 
New hardcover cookbooks with chef-inspired recipes combined with inspiring plated photographs and Seattle chocolatier Fran’s famous caramels. In addition, Fairweather’s offers a fine selection of hardcover design, travel, and garden books.

“Now, my hunger to cook for those I love has translated into self care. Without friends over the past year, I have cooked for myself; and I realize now that my life has been much the richer for it. When at times it has felt like the world is crumbling around me, a proper meal is something I look forward to, taking the time to lay the table prettily, and eating by soft candlelight. My best distraction lately has been ending the day with a sweet morsel of fine chocolate.

As this global pandemic lifts and, little by little, the world opens up, without doubt what I look forward to most is sitting once again round a table in the company of those I love and eating together. But for now I’m plotting tonight’s dinner, leafing through cookbooks looking for food I long to eat; and then taking the time to cook it just for me. There is comfort— a lot of love—in that, too.” — S. McAlpine

The pandemic year, although stressful, has given us a lot of  time to think—about our NW artists, and specifically, the role that the gallery can have on our patrons. Indeed, many artists have produced more new work than ever before.  We are grateful for their inspirations and have been fortunate to have had the time to create new vibrant displays to complement the artwork and to highlight the month of February, always and forever, known as the season of Love.

“The Pace of Nature” mixed media plaque by paper artisan Kris Zorko

Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience. –Ralph Waldo Emerson

Using techniques with paper and mixed media I create paper-tiled quote plaques. These creations allow me to combine my love of beautiful handmade papers and my fascination with words, specifically quotes. A good quote is like a sparkling gem to me — a profound thought or feeling crystallized within a few well-chosen words. I work to capture the essence of the quote in the design and images of the tiles. I choose quotes that have meaning for me, and I hope they speak to you as well. The work is a labor of love.” KZ

 

 

My artistic  passion is making beautiful monotype prints on the gelli plate. Currently I am now focusing mixed media collage, using my own marbled papers, and am excited about the possibilities of using quotations to create a message of hope. My quote plaques can be custom made to order through sponsoring galleries with a specific color scheme and/or design motif. — Kris Zorko

 

 

For 2021, Kris Zorko created new handmade paper tile notebooks accented with silk ribbons and handmade glass.

Hold That Thought!© notebooks $35.

 

 

And, too, Kris Zorko  created a delightful series of refillable note totes with handmade paper tiles and sueded paper.

“Oh my goodness! I  love mine!  I am framing and putting it on the wall!” CP

Covid Lockdown = Lots of free time! I found myself playing with the gelli plate. I also pulled  gorgeous metallic prints on crinkled black tissue. If you wonder what I do with this kind of paper, I have included a photo of a pair of earrings.  KZ

And, now click to view a slide show of the woven art cards handmade by Kris Zorko.

“Making hand woven paper cards is an exercise in problem solving.  Lately, I have finished the edges with micro powder gold leaf medium.  Each card is an invented process to not waste the painted papers.” KZ
