A team of dedicated volunteers unpacked art on May 30 in the wee hours of the morning.

 

“All of this made possible within 24 hours with a lot of help from volunteer artists who worked tirelessly Just to name a few: Mary Burgess, Tom Willing, Jane McGeehan, Emily Miller, curator Sara Vickerman and driver Jeff Gage. Thank you to the City of Seaside for saving the parking spaces on Broadway for the caravan of deliveries as it was transported (by SUV’s one trip at a time from the airport hangar/warehouse).”  D. Fairweather

 

Note received
“The Corvallis/OSU run of the Ode to the Tides art exhibit has been a success.   Tina, the La Sells Stewart  Gallery director said there has been a lot of traffic and excitement about the show and pieces sold. The show has now been installed in Seaside at Fairweather Gallery and Beach Books, where it is being promoted as part of the Seaside Art Walk with a harp concert. There will also be a lecture by Neal Maine (local naturalist and photographer) on June 13 at the Library from 6-8 PM.  

 

Thank you all for your involvement in this project, as it is a great opportunity to get people excited about the conservation of our oceans and estuaries through your beautiful art work. Next to the ocean and estuaries themselves, you are the best ambassadors. We are expecting a great turnout of artists in Seaside Saturday for the opening. If you miss Art Walk, hopefully you can make it Seaside before the show closes at the end of June. We are planning lots of special events for later this summer when the show moves to Newport. We will keep you posted.”

Q: What is a nudibranch, you ask?

“From a single tidepool and a turtle’s nest, to vast oceans and the forest floor, my artwork approaches conservation issues with the beauty and richness of the natural world.”

 

Emily Miller

“I have spent my life on the coast, and all my artwork has its roots in my love of the sea. I see the coast as a border between the known and unknown, amid constant cycles of change. My work explores these transition environments to illuminate our connection to the larger network of natural systems. I believe that joyful exploration of the unknown creates a positive, active environment that enriches our relationships with ourselves, each other, and our world.

I am a lifelong artist with a passion for materials. My work in different media ranges from watercolor painting to glass and metal sculpture, functional porcelain ware, digital and darkroom photo processes, and interactive installation work. So far I haven’t met a medium I didn’t like.”

“I got an inquiry from Oceana, the world’s largest ocean conservation group, asking if I could create new work for their summer fundraiser in July. They wanted to see a few samples, and selected two Ukidama baskets on display at Fairweather’s. The baskets were with rope from Japan found in Oregon and  named for the Japanese fishing floats that came with them.” Emily Miller

 

“Exciting news, my ghost net baskets will be going to Oceana! They’ve requested 34 large blue and aqua baskets for their 12th annual gala fundraiser, SeaChange Summer Party. It’s in Laguna Beach California on September 7. This year’s theme is ocean plastic pollution. They’re partnering with several ecological artists for the event, which is so wonderful to see, and I’m excited to be one of them!”

“THE LONG GREY LINE”  Dr. Dale J. Veith, fine art photographer

 

“When I think of, “March,” I cannot help but think of the many miles that my son and his fellow cadets spent marching during their tenure at West Point.

 

“The Cadet Chapel in March” by  Dr. Dale J. Veith, fine art photographer.

So, for my take on, “March,” I selected photos that were either taken at West Point during the month of March, or the photos are related to important marching events that occurred there.

 

For instance, the photo of the dark lines in the grass is titled, “THE LONG GREY LINE.” West Point Graduates are referred to as being part of “The Long Grey Line.” The lines in the lawn were worn into the lawn during an Acceptance Day parade when the cadets “accepted” into the Corps of Cadets.” Dr. Dale J. Veith

“He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.”  Friedrich Nietzsche

 

“An Oregon native, I am a clinical psychologist. I work in medical settings and my work is with people who have chronic medical conditions. The management pain is one of my passions.

My love of treating patients grew out of my personal experiences as a chronic pain patient. My pain started around 40 years ago through a combination of sports injuries, heavy physical labor, and motor vehicle crashes. Wonderful physicians, psychologists, and physical therapists helped me. Their examples inspired me to return to school so that I might find meaning through transforming my pain into an asset by helping others cope.

One of the most valuable lessons my rehab team taught me was the truth of the Nietzsche quote that introduces my bio. Having a sense of purpose, an awareness of what gives life meaning helps us tolerate the many challenges that life sends our way.

 

Having my photos in my office also allows me to share them. I use them to model for my clients how they might go about finding symbols that can perform the same function for them, symbols that remind them what gives their life’s meaning and purpose no matter what challenges confront them on their journey through life.  I hope they do that for all who see them.”  Dr. Dale J. Veith
