Introducing oil painter Colette Fallon

Paul Brent arrives for the summer of 2020 at Fairweather’s to paint LIVE during Seaside First Saturday Art Walks.

Paul Brent is an artist whose work has become internationally known to represent the coastal lifestyle.

From his watercolors to his recent oil paintings he captures nature in its best and most idyllic form.

While being best known for his beach subjects, he has painted landscapes that are equally indicative of his talent to recreate all aspects of nature.

He especially enjoys painting local scenes and beachscapes that he views near his two home studios in Panama City, Florida and Seaside, Oregon.

Paul Brent has offered painting demonstrations, a pop-up studio and painting classes during the past 11 years at Fairweather’s.

“Buoy Composition” by Paul Brent, oil on canvas, 24 x 36/ with frame 29 x 41

Location: Seaside, Oregon with Tillamook Head in the background

 

Q: What are buoys, you ask?

A:  Generally associated with fishing and boating activities (recreational or commercial), a buoy floats at the surface and is moored to the bottom. Brightly colored buoys are used for the marking of crab pot locations so the person fishing for crabs can find their traps. Crab pot buoys come in various sizes, shapes, and colors.

Oregon has over 360 miles of coastline — that’s a big sandbox for crabbing… Crabbing is available at the 12th Street Bridge in downtown Seaside…

“I read that you have survived the quarantine. It has really been a real test for all of us!! We are coming over and I have some new work. If my husband and I could help in any way we would be more than willing. Best wishes and looking forward to seeing you.” Peg Wells

 

“I hope that everything with the re-opening is going smoothly. I’m selecting new work for you. I will bring the new art in June if that works for you. In addition,  I will have new Plein Air for the gallery that I will do while I’m up there this summer. Thanks so much for what you do. All the best.”  Victoria Brooks

“Hope the re-opening goes as smoothly as possible.

Honestly, I have only been off the property 7 times since March.

Not really comfortable with the opening of the state yet. If we can make an appointment that is safe for everyone, I will drive down with the art that I have for you.

I do want to make everything successful for you and the gallery, so let’s make a plan.” Jan Rimmerman

 

“Hope plans are going well for the gallery.

I have some ideas for display at your gallery. I can get choices to you in June.

I will make an appointment with you to show you some in person.

Thank you for supporting the arts as we all progress through these changing times.”   Susan Romersa

 

 

“Welcome back to this new unsettled world we are living in!  I am glad that your gallery is opening back up, I ‘m sure it’s not been without a lot of new planning and hopefully some joy to be back at it!
Before all of this hit, I was to bring some of my ceramic work and was planning to do so for the June and August shows. 
Please let me know if there is time or space (!) available for me to bring up to 3 pieces and if so, when could I schedule a time to deliver?
My schedule is not as full as it used to be and I would love to make a trip to the beach if that is a possibility!”  Sandy Visse

 

“Just checking in. How are the gallery plans coming for this summer? We have booked a flight to Oregon in June. At any rate we will see you shortly thereafter.  Hopefully things will be open for the usual July Art Walk.”  Paul and LJ.

“Mary and I should be able to make a delivery run to Seaside over the weekend or early next week.

What works for you?  I will have salad bowls and burl show pieces. Mary has paintings.

Let us know when you would like is to show up and we’ll time it right.”  Tom Willing and Mary Burgess

 

It is our hope to continue to bring you informative and regional art notes that provide unique knowledge and inspiration for moving through this extraordinary period of change in our lives. 

 

Fairweather House and Gallery thanks you for your continued support, patience, and assistance as we navigate the ever-changing mandates and requirements.

Reposting  Fairweather Gallery March 15, 2020:

In order to protect the health and safety our guests, our community, and our staff the Gallery is closing its doors to visitors through April.

 

“Artists and those that support the arts have a unique sensitivity in the ability to pivot and meet needs that enlighten and inform, in my opinion.”  D. Fairweather, galleriest

Paul Brent is an artist whose work has become internationally known to represent the coastal lifestyle. From his watercolors to his recent oil paintings he captures nature in its best and most idyllic form.

While being best known for his beach subjects, he has painted landscapes that are equally indicative of his talent to recreate all aspects of nature. He especially enjoys painting local scenes and beachscapes that he views near his two home studios in Panama City, Florida and Seaside, Oregon.

Paul Brent was born in Oklahoma City and lived in rural Southwest Oklahoma with his family until he was thirteen. His parents, who were educators, moved their family to Long Beach, California, and Paul attended high school and California State College in Long Beach.

He completed his Bachelors of Architecture and joined the Air Force where he was stationed in Panama City, Florida. There he met his wife, Lana Jane and after they were married he left the service and they returned to California where he completed his Masters degree in Architecture at Cal Berkeley.

From June to October they live in Seaside, Oregon, where they have had a home and an artist’s studio. For the past 10 years Paul Brent has exhibited his work in Seaside at Fairweather Home and Gallery on Broadway.

Brent has been profiled in many publications including the Wall Street Journal, Coastal Living, Florida Monthly and many more.

End note:

“The fire inspector’s report showed that an undetermined electrical issue caused the fire that left the gallery and offices in charred rubble and ashes in November 2019..  Our business building of nearly 30 years and my architectural design were destroyed. We are now diligently looking for space in the downtown area– another challenge as many building were damaged and need repair or renovation from Hurricane Micheal (2018). We plan to spend the summer months in Oregon in 2020.  We are well and busy on projects.”  Paul
