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.

 

 

 

Table display I for HELLO SUNSHINE:

Hand painted transparent metallic luster wood turned candlesticks, hand dipped tapers, silk cording spools,  seed  pearl mosaic box by Gayle H. Seely, hand-dyed silk scarf,  hand-wrapped silk flowers,  glass art by Carolyn Myers Lindberg, hand-woven bamboo runner and encaustic art by Emily Miller.

 

 

 

Meticulous displays, like none other, with disciplined attention to design perspectives. Find harmony in exquisite materials, combined with the spirit of many artists who know how to apply the mark of being in the Northwest.

 

 

Table display II for HELLO SUNSHINE:

 

Hand-made kitchen/bath textile gifts for summer hostesses tied with sunny ribbon, bright hand-dipped candle tapers, hand-cast nickel candlesticks, linen/ cotton hand-hemmed runner, and glittering one-of-a-kind jewelry by Reneé Hafeman.

 

 

 

 

 

Find where interior design is not decorating but rather giving coastal homes the peaceful lifestyle. Find where everyday dreams are integrated with irreplaceable humanity, friendship and beauty.

 

 

 

Table display III for HELLO SUNSHINE:

Hand-made hostess gifts topped with a silk sunflowers, fused glass soap trays by Christine Downs, hand-made beaded ear-rings by Mary Truhler, and hand-carved bone picture frame.

Gallerist Denise Fairweather draws upon her life experience in design, principally as a senior level project designer/ Allied Member of the American Society of Interior Designers.  She thinks in terms of staging when designing exhibits.

 

 

“I do see staging art as a kind of a set.  When an exhibit is set, complete with the proper lighting, signing and art on display, so to speak, I want to see a perfect scene, for the artists, of course, for the visitors.  The assembled accessories  are placed to complement the art created with a specifically appointed theme … all working together to create a perfect exhibition.”

HELLO SUNSHINE

“The sun is but a morning star.” – Henry David Thoreau

Now on exhibit through August 25th

Art for the exhibition created entirely by North coast artists. Featuring art by Paul Brent, Lieta Gratteri,  Reneé Hafeman,  Bev Drew Kindley, Karen E. Lewis, Carolyn Lindberg, Neal Maine and Fedor Zubanov.

Q: What goes into the thought process when selecting an exhibition title, you ask?

A:  An exhibition title is selected one year in advance. HELLO SUNSHINE was chosen to herald in the Indian Summer season, at time when the sun, seems to (finally) shine on the North coast lands.

 

Yet, too, as in the August 2020  exhibition, a theme became a metaphor in relation to current events happening; it became a beacon of light, artistically speaking, amidst all the the darkness in the world happening during COVID-19.

Making stuff with your hands is important.

Truly, our generation unlike any other before views its work through a computer screen.

We are disconnected from the products and services that we create.

Surely, the art, craft, and maker movements are an attempt to redress the balance.

 

 

Ceramicist Suzy Holland’s stoney matte bowls and casseroles  are oven-proof and dishwasher safe (top shelf). Each piece is signed and one-of-a-kind.

 

 

 

 

 

Ceramicist Marcia Hudson’s waterfall glaze platter is food safe and signed with her maker’s mark.

 

 

 

 

 

Emily Miller’s salamander jar. The history folded into each ceramic work sustains its connection to its heritage may not appear to the naked eye of the viewer. This is what  constitutes the unique double life of contemporary ceramics- they are wildly sensual, visually tactile objects.

 

 

Fairweather’s ceramicists such as Suzy Holland, Marcia Hudson, and Emily Miller are keeping a craft alive that has been practiced since humankind got into the business of making things out of materials from the physical world.

 

 

And, too, Fairweather’s peeps are out there finding vintage stuff for the gallery to display on consignment.  Thankful for PB, SV-G, and LF-M for discovering delightful pieces that reconnect with the art, craft, and skills of previous generations. “Past creations, processes, and traditions lend their immense value as art objects.”

 

 

 

 

The magic of a maker’s mark. “Ceramics are maybe the most fundamental of endeavors- a direct transformation of raw earth into something new born of human hands and the human mind.”  D. Fairweather, gallerist.

Outdoor garden **folly filled with  cattail dyed green spheres and handmade moss decorative moss spheres.

 

**Q:  What is a garden folly, you ask?

A: A garden folly is usually considered a building or structure that is designed for decoration with no other purpose than to add a touch of whimsy or extravagance to the surrounding landscape. The term began as “a name for any costly structure considered to have shown folly in the builder” and was often named after the individual who commissioned or designed the project. The connotations of silliness or madness in this definition are in accord with the general meaning of the French word “folie”; however, another older meaning of this word is “delight.”

“This exhibit’s expectation lies in its possibility to present fresh, new perspectives, inspiration, experiences, reflection and even the possibility for transcendence in some way. Indeed, the meaning of “fresh start” is the beginning of a new period or step.  The North Coast land, truly, is in full springtime bloom for FRESH START, Fairweather’s March exhibition.”

At the beach, the winter garden is usually a peaceful sanctuary in hustle and bustle of the holiday season. However, this year the front yard has hosted a three week, up to 7 trucks a day repair crew with all sorts of ladders, multiple levels of scaffolding, and surely, miles of electrical cords. Discovering, at first, a simple indoor water feature/ or rather, a small leak…the issue eventually developed into an extensive time and materials on-going repair project. I had offered to park the car outside in order to allow the garage space for material and equipment storage, every plug hosted multiple portable tool charging devices. Seeing daylight on the western front of the house today (windows and doors were previously boarded up) and seeing cedar shingles on the exterior curved walls… the end is in sight. Thankful for the insurance company who has covered: Mt. St. Helens volcano eruption repair (we lived 14 miles away); boating death; 1996 Portland flooding issue; gallery destruction in a 2007 windstorm and this current matter. Thankful for the contractor who was referred, who pulled together a crew from his home building company (has built ten homes in the Reserve). “Basically, we have used all the tools and equipment to build a complete house other than the plumbing on this repair.”

I would highly recommend the contractor and his crew, as they have proven themselves knowledgeable and efficient in the task associated with this water search and destroy repair project. PM for contractor and insurance references.

“This collection of jewelry is inspired by Joanie’s fun yet classy style. The earrings and bracelets are simple in design, light weight and are made of mixed metal, including sterling silver, pewter, brass, gold filled, copper, gemstones and pearls. I live and handcraft all of the jewelry in Oregon. I received my Graduate Gemology degree from the Gemological Institute of America  and have many years of experience working with diamonds, gemstones and other boutique jewelry.  In memory of Joanie, my mother, I will be donating 10% of sales to OHSU Knight Cancer Institute.”

Signed and dated by the potter.

 

“I fire in my own kiln with low fire glazes, which until a few years ago were all purchased redi-made, but lately I have ventured out into the challenging world of chemicals and recipes and am quite proud of my very own home made glazes.”

 

“I am a functional potter and tend to make anything that can be used in everyday life.”

“My husband and I have moved all over this country following his career. Once my five children were grown, I knew I would need a “hobby” to fill my time and fell in love with the medium of clay from the first moment sitting at the wheel. I never imagined I would someday call myself a ceramic artist.

After 20 years of classes, workshops and thousands of hours of working/playing in clay and making glazes, I finally have my own studio in my new home in Cannon Beach.

We are so thrilled to be living in this lovely area with so much beauty and relaxing vibe. You cannot help be inspired by just taking a walk.

I am a functional potter and tend to make anything that can be used in everyday life. I love handles and tend to lean to the whimsical.

Most recently, I have enjoyed working on different shapes and designs that are done on flat surfaces.” Marcia Hudson, potter.

 

 

I  am working on my favorite designs which are unique birdhouses that inspire thoughts of fairies who live amongst our feathered friends. MS
