Melissa Jander

 

Melissa Jander is an award-winning Seattle area artist creating oil paintings full of color and emotion. She began her studies in the field of technical drawing and architecture, later adding a Bachelor of Arts in Foreign Language and Literature from Washington State University, a Graphic Design Certificate from the Art Institute of Seattle, and a Web Design Certificate from Bellevue College. Continuing art instruction included the Loveland Academy of Fine Art in Colorado, Gage Academy and Kirkland Arts Center in Washington, and additional private art instruction. Melissa is a Signature Member of Women Artists of the West, and Associate Member of American Impressionist Society, and Oil Painters of America, and member of Camano Arts Association.

In recent news, Melissa Jander was honored to receive the promoted status of “Signature Member” in Women Artists of the West in January 2020.

 

 

And, too, Melissa Jander’s painting “Lively Gathering” won “Best of Show” from Women Artists of the West.

Jane Hunt, a Master Signature Member was the show judge and offered these kind comments:

“This piece epitomizes the expression ‘painting light’. You can almost feel the air in this piece and that coupled with clever composition, strong drawing and nuanced color harmony makes the viewer keep coming back.”

“One of my favorite places to go when visiting Seaside, Oregon is Fairweather House & Gallery. Owner Denise Fairweather is a celebrated Interior Designer and also a Master Gardener. Her gallery is a showcase of her fresh and contemporary style and is a beautiful sanctuary of art, furniture and home accessories…so inspiring! While we are waiting to be able to visit again, she is still curating her monthly art shows. I’m honored to be featured this month for “Summer Served.” — Melissa Jander

Soon, we hope to be on the other side of the pandemic crisis.

The arts play a vital role in supporting tourism efforts in our community, and while we are currently in a holding pattern,

there is no time like the present for a bit of looking back and, hopefully, for moving forward.

We will continue sharing and connecting in the arts with the artists and you.

A curatorial virtual NW exhibiton titled ‘In Full Bloom’

Fairweather House and Gallery brings together artists’ works in a variety of genres and interpretations, grouping them into an on-line spectrum of theme and color.

Featuring art by Jo Pomeroy Crockett, Christine Downs, Bev Drew Kindley, Dorota Haber-Leligh, Greta Lindwood, Melissa Jander, Carmela Newstead, and Zifen Qian.

“I love flowers. If I could, I would have flowers for dessert and live in a greenhouse surrounded by them. I actually crave flowers for their lovely colors, textures, fragrance, and beauty,   D. Fairweather, galleriest

Featured floral art work includes botanical, realism, abstraction, and surrealism.

Research has found that being around flowers increases the level of compassion that they feel for others and are more willing to extend a helping hand to those in need.

Art can be purchased and picked-up by curbside appointment or delivered free locally.

Contact gallery curator @fairweatherkd@gmail.com or message on FB @fairweatherhouseandgallery

We will see you, hopefully, on the other side of the pandemic crisis.

 

 

Just viewing floral art causes joy in the same way as walking in nature and losing oneself in music.

“For if you think art is not necessary try to spend time without music, books, poems, movies and… art.”

Sharing a video recently posted by North Coast Land Conservancy.

 

 

Thank you for reading about the arts in Seaside.

“Loss of Common Ground” acrylic on canvas 20 x 24 by W.E Shumway

“I separated the two primary colors into similar sized areas just to see what sort of impact that might have on the viewer. The color saturation was intense and intimidating. My eyes moved from one color mass to the other, unable to focus on both simultaneously.I added the third primary color on the artist’s color wheel: yellow. True common ground is the kind where unexpected colors reveal themselves. Secondary and tertiary colors are formed and bring their symbolism to the gathering. This reminds me of what happens when people decide to talk about issues upon which they do not agree.”

“Boxed In” acrylic on canvas 11 x 14 by W.E. Shumway

“Without the addition of white pigment, I moved some of the red into the blue and vice versa. Both of those areas blended to dark purple. When I blended all of both colors, the entire painting turned to dark purple. The original colors were replaced with a new color, a condition not unlike a two- party system being replaced.”

 

“Crack Lets the Light In” aryclic on canvas 12 x 12 by by W.E. Shumway

“I added white pigment, to introduce light to the reds, the blues and the purples. It allowed for a much greater range of color and tonal values. The common ground areas were much more sensitively rendered, interspersed with lighter colors: pinks, lavenders, ice blues, etc. They each carried their own symbolic meanings within their primary derivatives. Light added another dimensional meaning to the imagery. Light helps delineate form and special relationships, as truth helps define what is and what isn’t.”

Q: What’s going on in your studio?

A: “It is certainly a time when we need to share and collaborate on-line with other artists and a community that has become global overnight. We can look back to other catastrophic moments, like 9/11 and the Great Depression, when large communities coalesced and found workable solutions. Those experiences serve to remind us that we can find ways to get to a healthier situation and find common ground creatively.”

Polarization and too little negotiated action  allowed the virus to remain unchecked for too long. This pandemic, however, offers us an opportunity to culture the common ground we find ourselves in now. Even though there is some divisiveness amongst politicians, economists and healthcare organizations, many in each group are earnestly looking to work together to divert potential disasters. With enough critical thinking, education and planning, humankind has an opportunity to evolve into a much wiser and planet friendly species. To this end we’ll need to legislate and fund the healthy practices that we discovered while we’ve been globally challenged.

As a species we have not, thus far, shown much ability to sustain healthy behavior beyond a few generations. Our capacity to forget the past and bend to greed, addiction and abuse of power is built deeply into our genes. However, if ever there was a time for reevaluation and evolutionary change, it is now.”

W E Shumway, 3/30/2020

**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.”

“Portal” side one by seed mosaic for spring 2020 by Gayle H. Seely

“Portal” side two by Gayle H. Seely

Q:  What is the definition of portal, you ask?

A:  A portal is a gate or doorway. Portal can be used to describe other types of doorways, both literal and metaphorical.  If you enjoy reading science fiction or fantasy, you may be familiar with the use of the word portal to mean “a doorway to another world.” The wardrobe in C.S. Lewis’s The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe functions as a portal to the land of Narnia.

“Running Water” seed pearl mosaic box by Gayle H. Seely.

“I like to combine a theme of an exhibit  with the subject “water” to create distinctive pieces that are tactile as well as visual,” Gayle H. Seely.

“I love seeing people become so involved in my boxes, Gayle H. Seely.

 

“I layer tiny beads and stones in painterly combinations onto small wooden boxes,” Gayle H. Seely.

Fairweather House and Gallery art display of Gayle H. Seely.

 

In 2019 Gayle H. Seely was selected as a Fairweather Gallery resident artist, having previously served as an emerging artist to watch.  2020 marks her sixth year in the gallery.

 

 

“The portal piece for FRESH START began with two earrings made of abalone. A circle from my Mom balanced on a tall triangle that was mine. It immediately reminded me of a keyhole and drew me to the idea of peeking through a portal to see what comes next. The black edges bring to mind a path through the liminal space between the two bigger sides shining colorfully and shimmering with the changing light source.” Gayle H. Seely

“Gayle H. Seely’s ancient methods of mosaic and beading combined with fresh, modern energy and emotions create intricate colorful boxes, bound to delight,”  wrote  Eve Marx, reporter for The Astorian.
