Full Moon Bowl by Emily Miller

 

 

“I have a brand new full moon bowl (first one out of the kiln!) Creating a different perspective on my passion for exploring unknown environments in art. Although most of my artwork has focused on the ocean, I find the beauty, mystery, and science of outer space as compelling as the deep-sea.”  —Emily Miller, artist

 

Q: When is the full moon in June, you ask?

A: The full moon will be on June 27 and June 28. To the casual observer, however, the moon will appear full the day before and after its peak brightness. https://www.moongiant.com/moonphases/June/2018

 

 

Concept drawings by Emily Miller.

“I love the fanciful scientific names for the lunar “seas” (which are actually flat regions of dark basalt where lava oozed to the surface, pulled by Earth’s gravity up towards the near side of the moon). The Sea of Nectar and the Sea of Clouds are two of my favorites. I also love that the Seas of Tranquility and Crises are right next to each other.”  Emily Miller

 

 

“I am captivated by the beautiful contrast between light and darkness in our natural world, and the necessity of both for life to thrive. .”  Emily Miller

End note: Two Fairweather Gallery artists featuring a North Oregon coast night scene with a full moon over the Pacific Ocean, which is the largest ocean in the world.   At full moon, the Moon and Sun are in a straight line on opposite sides of the Earth. Their gravitational forces combine to create larger waves.

“High Seas” 8 x 10 Original oil on linen by Ron Nicolaides.

 

The  Pacific coast is the predominant subject of Nicolaides’ paintings. With years of study and experience, Ron Nicolaides  has become a powerful accomplished artist. He has captured majestic landscapes and has mastered the mesmerizing translucent waves in his depiction of the sea without freezing its energetic rhythms. 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.

About the illuminating art wood display:

Hand made and hand-finished lighted display stands for art glass and other translucent objects.  Each display is solid natural wood, textures and colors are unique.  Finishes include cherry, maple and walnut. High-intensity LED lights (without the need of batteries)  emphasize the intricate details of art and objects – much like a fine p[picture frame.  LED bulbs last up to ten years.  “Investing in art is spiritually and emotionally rewarding,” Andrew Nelson.

 

About the painted glass jewelry:

Pouring paint into glass is the artist’s favorite medium because of the bright color mixing.  The Northwest artist creates colorful  drippings, reminiscence of ocean waves and skies, to make one-of-a-kind  personal jewelry.   “I hope you enjoy my art, as much as I enjoyed creating it,” Tanya Gardner

 

 

It’s beginning to look like high season at the beach. Yes, indeed,  it is the nearly that time of year when Seaside has most tourists or visitors.

Kemy Kay, gallery hostess.

“Welcome to the Seaside.”

 

The lists are “Best Summer Vacations” and “Best Summer Vacations in the U.S.”

U.S. News Travel considered 700 cities, parks, beaches and small towns around the world and in this country, measuring “affordability, weather and variety of things to do plus traveler and expert sentiment.”

According to the rankings, Paris, France is the world’s No. 1 summer vacation list, followed by Florence, Italy; Boston, Massachusetts; and Dublin, Ireland. Seaside, Oregon is fifth. I mean, we’re talking about Paris, the City of Lights, and Seaside, the city of surreys and fried clams.

Southern Exposure: Seaside under the radar no more
Can you say ‘Seaside’ and ‘Boston’ in the same sentence?

Editor Gwendolyn Shearman of U.S. News Travel said her team initiates the process by selecting destinations from throughout the world. They score each destination in 11 different categories.

For rankings such as the Best Summer Vacations and the Best Summer Vacations in the USA, editors also factor in the seasonality of a destination and when the best time to visit is for the everyday traveler. Rankings are based on user ratings and editors’ scores, from 0 to 5 — “phenomenal.”

Editors apply these ratings to categories including sights, culture, people, food, shopping, family, nightlife, adventure, romance and accessibility. Destinations’ overall scores are a weighted average of the individual editors’ averages, based on which factors users said were most important to them.

This is the first year Seaside has been included in the scoring, Shearman said, receiving high marks in the sights, family, food and accessibility categories.

“Seaside stood out this year because of its appeal to both beach-going families and outdoor enthusiasts. Plus, its location in the Pacific Northwest is a great alternative to more well-known (and more crowded) beach destinations further south.”

 

In 2018, editors have found readers are particularly interested in visiting more under-the-radar vacation spots and smaller towns in the United States, she said. “More of those types of vacations appearing on many of our ranking lists.”

In Seaside, all you have to do is take a leisurely stroll along the Prom on a clear  morning  to place the city high on your own list. We’re proud to have our home named among the finest in the world.

About the artist:

Ron Nicolaides, lives and works 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 visiting museums as a basis for his continuing knowledge of art and the style of the Hudson River School of Painting, a style he pursues.

Artist Eugene Garin has served as his mentor. However, his work is heavily inspired by the European Old Masters with his greatest stylistic influence being the Hudson River School of artists, such as Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Moran, Frederic Church and Herman Herzog.

The western landscape and Pacific coast are the predominant subjects of Nicolaides’ paintings.

Evening Surf

 Ron Nicolaides, with years of study and experience has become a powerful accomplished artist. He has captured majestic landscapes and has mastered the mesmerizing translucent waves in his depiction of the sea without freezing its energetic rhythms.

“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 accomplishment as an artist can be clearly seen in his use of fine detail, vibrant color and the multiple glazes. The stylistic influences he uses give his compositions a sense of wonderful depth.” 

 

Water and Light

“His accomplishment as an artist can be clearly seen in his use of fine detail, vibrant color and the multiple glazes. The stylistic influences he uses give his compositions a sense of wonderful depth.”

His paintings can be found in many private collections and selected  fine art galleries.  His work is in a permanent exhibition in the North Lincoln County Historical Museum in Lincoln City, Oregon.

Q: What is the Hudson River School of Painting style, you ask?

A: Hudson River School of Painting,  an American art Movement, was  originally a large group of American landscape painters of several generations who worked between about 1825 and 1870. The name, applied retrospectively, refers to a similarity of intent rather than to a geographic location, though many of the older members of the group drew inspiration from the picturesque Catskill region north of New York City, through which the Hudson River flows.
An outgrowth of the Romantic movement, the Hudson River school was the first native school of painting in the United States; it was strongly nationalistic both in its proud celebration of the natural beauty of the American landscape and in the desire of its artists to become independent of European schools of painting.

Hudson River School paintings reflect three themes of America: discovery, exploration, and settlement. The paintings also depict the American landscape as a pastoral setting, where human beings and nature coexist peacefully. Hudson River School landscapes are characterized by their realistic, detailed, and sometimes idealized portrayal of nature, often juxtaposing peaceful agriculture and the remaining wilderness, which was fast disappearing from the Hudson Valley in the 19th century just as it was coming to be appreciated for its qualities of ruggedness and sublimity.
