Top ten 2016 smile times.
 Laughter has a magnetic quality.
Laughter is contagious and uncontrollable.
Laughter can create unique bonds between people.

Indeed.

The ability to have a good laugh — especially at our own expense — may be essential for survival.

TIME magazine reported: Ursula Beermann of the University of California, Berkeley, and Willibald Ruch of the University of Zurich studied 70 psychology students to gauge their ability to laugh at themselves. The findings support what has long been believed: that being able to laugh at oneself is not only a distinct trait, but is also linked with having an upbeat personality and good mood and may be the foundation for a good sense of humor.

And, so, we move forward to 2017!!!

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.

woven-owl

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.

Kathryn Delany introduces art that features “a little bit of the feeling of isolation of the birds, the vastness of their universe and the landscape underneath them.”

 

Kathryn Delany, a creative fine artist based in Portland, specializes in customized art work to fit a lifestyle. She offers commissioned art, fine art prints, digital painting, photo-painting and art on tile, glass, and aluminum. Her style can range from impressionist to trompe l’oeile, abstract to whimsical.

 

 

“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.” —

At 6: pm, Neal Maine, ecologist, premier wildlife photographer, and co-founder of the North Coast Land Conservancy, will offer a lecture on the local habitat.

A habitat is an ecological area that is inhabited by a particular species. The term typically refers to the zone in which the species lives and where it can find food, shelter, protection and mates for reproduction. The local vegetation ecological area type may be a coastal rain forest, grass land plains, or dunes. Fresh water habitats include marshes, streams, rivers, lakes, ponds and estuaries, and marine habitats include salt marshes, the coast and the intertidal zone. (From Wikipedia)

About Lori

Lori Wallace-Lloyd was born in Austin, Texas. 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.

Wallace-Lloyd’s work is complicated and involves many aspects. She strives to convey emotion, yet not necessarily mainstream ideals of happiness. While still inviting, the paintings of adolescent girls and women stare at us with reality, almost daring us to question their femininity, their moodiness, their confidence. Sometimes their expressions are at odds within the allegorical situations, which have historical and modern context. Wallace-Lloyd frequently uses her daughters and their friends as models, and describes herself as “constantly surrounded by the feminine expression of life.” This gives her work the depth of intimacy and uses her art as a metaphor for exploring our strong, yet fragile humanness.

Wallace-Lloyd frequently works in still life, one of her favorite subjects being roses and other florals. She loves to combine flowers, pottery and other forms of nature and study the chiaroscuro effects.

Wallace-Lloyd’s master drawings convey a timeless sense of composition and draftsmanship. She works in mixed media with pastel pencils as her main medium, especially with another of her favorite subjects, birds of the world. She believes in bringing attention to the habitat and climate changes many of our winged friends are experiencing.

Artful Simplicity featured calligraphy by Penelope Culbertson.

“Those the live for the arts, surely, have traveled so much, and have seen the best of everything. If anything, the simplicity of the quiet season and the beauty of creating a thoughtful art collection are, truly, about living a life of great quality. No need to overstate it. Patrons support the arts. Indeed, we are grateful.”

“Your art walks have become well-attended events. You have a wonderful supportive group of friends which include all your artists. I really enjoyed talking and getting to know each and every one. Bruce and I really enjoyed our weekend! ” D. Joy Mc Fadden

“The natural world inspires and fascinates me. I start with and believe in my instinctual response to a critter. One I know what I want to draw, I think about the size and colors of the surface of the paper I use. It has to be able to take a lot of abuse because I never know my direction. failure and uncertainty are just part of the process.”–Lori Wallace-Lloyd.
