Hand fused art glass bowl, vanilla and amber, by Bob Heath.

“I  create individual components that are fused separately, and then cut and shaped before ultimately being fused together. After the work is fused, it is cold-worked to achieve a professional finish on the surface and edges that brings out the inherent beauty of the glass.” BH

    Indeed, we have wonderful holiday memories that make us smile at the remembering of them. So this year, we decided we would do a full embrace of of ALL THAT GLITTERS. These days, we can all use an extra dose of “feel good”! And, our designer, affiliated as an allied member, of A.S.I.D., American Society of Interior Designers, will be on hand to show you how to turn all this shimmering inspiration into high impact displays you will love in a few key spots in your own home.

    Trending in 2020

    “Think  impermanent and incomplete… two words for the mood we are going to see with decorating at home during the on-going global pandemic.  Design is focused on choosing objects with texture, by adding imperfect items, wrinkled natural fabrics, and by choosing handmade beauty. Colors are muted and raw as well, grey, perhaps, to match the mood of restraint and understated, as holiday celebrations will continue to be limited for the safety of family and friends during COVID.” D. Fairweather, gallerist/ designer

     

     

     

     

    “Indeed, we have found wonderful glass ornaments that tugged at our heartstrings, sparking memories of our own glittering trees growing up.” DF

     

     

     

     

     

    And, too, a note from our Governor:

    “Wild Beauty/ Ash” pen and ink with watercolor by emerging artist Vanessa K. Stokes 

    “Get hopelessly lost in the art you make. Go down for days and come out on the other side with scrapes and bruises and a masterpiece.” – Ariel Bloomer

     

    “Wild Beauty/ Wolf Spirit” watercolor mixed media by emerging artist Vanessa K. Stokes

     

    Vanessa K. Stokes was introduced at Fairweather’s when she was fifteen, as an artist to watch. An emerging artist is someone who is in the early stage of their career, someone who has caught the eye of an art curator at a gallery.

     

    “Dragonfly Paradise” sealed watercolor on board by Diana Nadal

    Diana Nadal’s inspirations are captured in the quotation:

    “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” 
    Henry David Thoreau

     “Feather Boa” water media by Pam Haunschild

     

    In my paintings, I attempt to capture the essence of nature without copying it exactly.  I want to get past the obvious — to get to the essence of why many of us find being outside in nature soothing to our souls.  Conveying the power behind a bird’s gaze, the wonder of the vast number and variety of creatures that live in a tidepool, or the majesty of a salmon swimming upstream to spawn, I hope to capture something that will inspire viewers to connect more deeply with the natural world.” PH

    “Swan” graphite on yupo by Patricia Clark-Finley

    With the first snows falling in the Pacific Northwest, it’s an appropriate time to turn our attention to wintering birds that can be found in our region.

    Trumpeter Swans, Tundra Swans, and Snow Geese are three white birds that are of particular interest  at this time because their populations are growing and expanding to new locations within the Northwest.

    The Snowy Owl is an irregular visitor to the North Coast, with sightings most likely from early November to mid-March. Abundance varies from year to year, with none reported some winters, over 100 reported in others, and at least a few most years.

    “My art process reflects the family cultures I come from. At the foreground are issues of migration, movement, and constant change. My own nomadic wandering is both intellectual and also physical as my studio location and my reading list seems to change every few years. The birds which populate my images seem to echo this freedom of wandering. Most recently, the broad expanse of abstraction and light are inspired by the weather watching I do from my Long Beach Peninsula studio window in Washington.” Patricia Clark-Finley

    “Fairweather Art Walk is always good. It seems effortless and relaxed as only a talented designer could orchestrate. The space is lighted with precision to display over 100 artworks from a variety of genres and mediums. The artists are comfortable and welcomed as they mingle with visitors and one another. Greetings are pleasant and well-mannered. The evening  progresses with explanations from the artists about their work, and a word from the curator about current projects and events.  Gallerist Denise Fairweather works tirelessly along with loyal friends to set the stage for this genuine paradigm for art in the community.”  PCF

    Claudia Fuenzalida Johns

    I paint because of a deeply rooted desire to create something that expresses deep emotion. A retrospection of loving, giving, risking, suffering. Painting allows me to relax, daydream, escape from the demands of family and work. It is my retreat, my sanctuary.

    I am from a creative and emotionally charged family. Santiago, Chile is my birthplace. My family is made up of painters, dancers, opera singers. It was the natural thing to do, to dance and paint. I came to the USA in 1972 at the age of 9 when my mother, fearing the inevitable military takeover of the Augusto Pinochet regime, sent my brother, sister, and me to Seattle to live with a distant aunt. We were to be here six months, we never went back. We lived in a mystical, enigmatic household that alluded to a spiritual world not bound by religion. I attended North Carolina School of the Arts and majored in art & dance at the University of Washington. My work is featured in selected fine art galleries in the Pacific Northwest.

     

     

    Images of birds and wings suggest hope, nurturing, protecting and spirituality. Along with a very bright color pallet, I use the texture of encaustic, a technique  of painting with  wax. I love the unpredictable element it adds to a work of art.”  CFJ

     

     

    “Falling with the Moon” encaustic by Claudia Fuenzalida Johns

    20.5” x 24”

     

     

    In the midst of living, I paint about  life with its hope and its disappointments. I try to transcend reality by painting the imagined. And what I leave behind is my thoughts on living and our relationships to nature.”  CHJ

    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.

    “Watching animals on television is extremely different than seeing them in their own habitat. 

    Experiencing the fight for life and survival has given me a great respect for the wild animals of the Serengeti in Africa.    

    My safari group saw the animals hunting, being hunted and living together in a complicated environment.” Jan Rimerman

     

    Lioness mixed media by Jan Rimerman

    The defined muscles and grace of the lioness in the painting doesn’t even hint at the clever maneuvers that she designs to feed her family.     

    24″ x 24″ on panel

     

    Watching the powerful discipline of the Lioness in the hunt allowed me to see the determination of survival.  Experiencing the lives of the African animals was not always pleasant or beautiful. 

    Witnessing the patient dance of the hunt in the Ngorongoro Crater was both wild, beautiful and horrifying.  Luckily an attentive zebra made the warning call and, although the cubs went hungry, a wildebeest’s life was spared.” JR

     

     

     

    Cape Buffalo mixed media by Jan Rimerman

    The wild beauty in this painting is exhibited in the wonderful shapes found in the animal’s distinctive physical characteristics.

    24″ x 24″ on panel

    The Cape Buffalo has an entirely different kind of wild beauty.  This animal’s strength, shape and power is evident in its stare and stance. Although this 1,800lb. animal is a vegetarian, it can ward off lions, leopards, hyenas and African wild dogs.

    It is considered one of the top most dangerous animals to encounter.  The cape buffalo exudes power as well as a stubborn personality. The snorts and sounds of this animal’s hooves are a good reminder to stay in the vehicle.  JR

     

    Thomson’s Gazelle mixed media by Jan Rimerman

    This painting captures the alert tension that is ever present.

    24″ x 24″

    The Thomson’s Gazelle has a beauty and grace of a different kind.  They live in herds alongside the zebras and wildebeests. They have many predators so their acute senses of sight, smell and hearing work in their favor.  They are the fastest and nimblest of all antelope and can reach speeds of between 40-60 miles per hour. 

     

    Observing a herd running across the plains is like watching a ballet of well-proportioned muscle moving in synchronized rhythm.  The Thomson’s gazelles are known for their acrobatic leaps which confuse their predators and make them more difficult targets.”  JR

      

     

     

    Jan Rimerman studied art at the City University in London, at Willamette University, Portland State University and at the University of Washington. Her work is found in ten books. Her art pieces are all painted on top of an underpainting of powdered charcoal on heavy watercolor paper.  Twenty-two layers of transparent fluid acrylic are applied to create a feeling of three-dimensionality and luminescence.

    Jan is the Visual Arts Coordinator of the Lakewood Center, the Art Director of the LO Reads Program, the Director of Rock…Paper…Turtle…Art for Wetlands in partnership with The Wetlands Conservancy & the Director of the Rain Spark Gallery.   Jan’s art is well known for unusual perspectives and narrative.  She uses it for presentations promoting the arts and culture while raising awareness for the World Wildlife Fund and for clean water in Tanzania.

    “Nature can be beautiful in many ways.  My life consciously includes travel adventures whether in my own backyard or abroad.  The paintings for this exhibit include some of the wild beauty I was privileged to experience up close and personal in Kenya and Tanzania. Learning and understanding the animal hierarchy, the survival skills of each species and the interconnectedness of their lives allows their wild beauty to be even more vivid.” Jan Rimerman

    “Petrichor” by Agnes Field

    Mixed media fresco painting on panel

    24”x 30”

    “I paint what I need to see, with references to nature and poetry.”  AF

     

    Q:  What is the meaning of petrichor, you ask?

    A: Pet·ri·chor/ noun means a pleasant smell that frequently accompanies the first rain after a long period of warm, dry weather.

     

     

    “Most of the studio is work-in-progress and I consider them emotional totems– indications of expressions under the surface.” AF

     

     

    I produce mixed media paintings assembled from my surroundings using commonly accessible materials, such as cardboard, wood, plaster and fabric.  The artwork attempts to minimize the boundary between everyday experience and objects.   I have shown work and worked as an artist-in-residence in Finland, Italy (SACI-Florence; NYU-Venice, and the Atlantic Center for the Arts in Florida.”  AF

     

     

     

    Agnes Field  creates her distinctive art work in an off-the-grid studio on a working farm with her husband high above the Lewis and Clark Road near Seaside. They built their home to be self-sufficient in cooling, electricity, heating, and hot water.

     


    Agnes Field, of native Chinook Indian and Finnish descent, uses non-traditional materials and found objects in paintings attempting to imbue the kind of energy found in leftover artifacts.

    Painting makes the wild beauty of the world more knowable and more mysterious at the same time.”  AF

     

    Oregonian Agnes Field completed her graduate work at New York University and studied at the Pacific NW College of Art, School of Visual Arts, New York, and SACI in Florence, Italy. The award-winning artist has shown nationally and included in shows at the Portland Art Museum, Coos Bay Art Museum, and the Cheney Cowles Museum.

    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.
