The Waves at Shore Acres, Oregon Coast by Linda Fenton-Mendenhall

Linda Fenton-Mendenhall is a photographer living and working in one of the most beautiful parts of the Pacific Northwest, the Oregon Coast.  Her love of photography is born from a life steeped in nature. “It is easy to see beauty in everything when you have grown up in days framed with spectacular sunrises, incredible scenery, and breathtaking ocean views.”

The Rocks at Ecola oil on canvas by Philip Juttelstad

With artwork influenced by prior training in architecture and related disciplines,  my design aesthetic is inspired by the environment of the Pacific Northwest- the skies; the land and the water.” –Philip Juttelstad

Enduring the Sea, oil on linen, by Ron Nicolaides. 18×24

Ron Nicoladies paints realistic waves amidst the winter stormy seas of the Pacific Ocean for Fairweather’s exhibition, THE SEA ENDURES. The artist portrays the movement of the waves, the breath of the sea, the blaze of the skies. He paints the seascapes in his studio relying on the memory, history, and imagination.

PLACE-BASED Exhibition 

NW art show and sale

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.

 WILD BEAUTY exhibition

Through Nov. 24th

 

Featuring NW artists Leopoldine “LEO” Brew, Agnes Field, Patricia Clark-Finley, Dorota Haber-Leligh, Ron Nicolaides, Neal Maine, Jan Rimerman, and Vanessa K. Stokes.

Welcoming  encaustic artist Claudia Fuenzalida Johns.

The strength of WILD BEAUTY lies in the detailed and multivariate perspectives each artist brings showing us a different viewpoint.

They all use WILD BEAUTY as the theme in their work but they use different techniques and the way they see it is distinctively unique.

 

 

 

 

Ron Nicolaides lives in Oregon and studied art at Washington University in St. Louis Missouri, but is primarily a self-taught artist. He painted his first oil seascape in his teens and credits art museums as a basis for his continuing knowledge of art and the Hudson River School style he pursues.

His strength is his capacity to push the limits of oils and multiply glazes to create the masterful works that bring the viewer right into the scene. His work is on exhibit in museums and selected galleries throughout the United States.

 

 

 

 

Ron Nicolaides is a featured artist in the book  Northwest Artists- A Collection of Works by Notable Northwest Artists.  Hardbound. 223 pages, 400 color illustrations. Signed copies available at Fairweather’s.  $29.95

 

 

 

 

Published Cameron Blagg Jr. is a founding member of the Northwest Artists Association. He developed the concept for the recent book Northwest Artists as a way to honor and promote painters and sculptors based in this region. The publication highlights more than 150 artists with several examples of their work.

“Hues or colors are so pure – no white or blacks added – just rich, delightful, lose yourself in the color.”

In addition, HUE features a lavish array of handmade jewelry of mixed-metal, leather, gold-filled and semi-precious stones from many of the Northwest’s most reputable jewelry artists. It is a once a year exclusive private jewelry shopping experience to select the latest edgy fashion forward works.

In addition, new, never-before-seen photographs  and selected “encore” polar bear photographs from Neal Maine’s Arctic Light Images.

Raffle opportunity – only 14 chances to win a signed and framed Arctic Light  by Neal Maine (valued at $295).

The Last Polar Bear, a book published by Braided River. In addition to  Steven Kazlowski’s photos, the book features essays by Alaska-based writers Charles Wohlforth, Richard Nelson and Nick Jans, as well as Newsweek correspondent Dan Glick, Frances Beinecke, president of the National Resources Defense Council, and Theodore Roosevelt IV, conservationist and great-grandson of the president.

The photographs that make up the book show the polar bears and other Arctic species in their threatened natural habitat — swimming, playing, caring for their young and dozing on late-summer ice floes. One image is beautiful but the caption reminds the reader of the reality: “If we do nothing as a society, and the ice continues to melt, zoos could be the only place on Earth where polar bears can be found.”
