“Summer Fun” 18 x 24 original oil on linen  by Victoria Brooks

 

“Sometimes a painting resonates emotionally goes to a home to savor the feelings it evokes again and again. Sometimes a painting reminds someone of something in their own life,  perhaps, rekindling memories of shared moments, and sometimes clients just like a painting’s technical execution or want to add a little more beauty to their lives.”  VB

Grace note received…

 

“It was good to see you!  I’m so happy you are hanging in there with the Gallery during the COVID crisis. It brings joy to so many people.  Take special care.”  Victoria Brooks

“Indeed, at the  gallery, new safety measures are proving more of a plus than an inconvenience.  Visitors’ newfound awareness of their surroundings following the reopening have created a more focused, harmonious gallery experience. These days, you feel like everything is slowing down generally, it is actually kind of nice to take time to really see an exhibit. 

As a curator,  balancing public safety along with the desire to allow visitors to freely engage with art;  truly, everyone seems to understand the situation we are all in, and for this, I am thankful.”  D. Fairweather, gallerist

 

 

Grace notes received

“I read that you have survived the quarantine. It has really been a real test for all of us!! We are coming over and I have some new work. If my husband and I could help in any way we would be more than willing. Best wishes and looking forward to seeing you.” Peg Wells

 

“I hope that everything with the re-opening is going smoothly. I’m selecting new work for you. I will bring the new art in June if that works for you. In addition,  I will have new Plein Air for the gallery that I will do while I’m up there this summer. Thanks so much for what you do. All the best.”  Victoria Brooks

“Hope the re-opening goes as smoothly as possible.

Honestly, I have only been off the property 7 times since March.

Not really comfortable with the opening of the state yet. If we can make an appointment that is safe for everyone, I will drive down with the art that I have for you.

I do want to make everything successful for you and the gallery, so let’s make a plan.” Jan Rimmerman

 

“Hope plans are going well for the gallery.

I have some ideas for display at your gallery. I can get choices to you in June.

I will make an appointment with you to show you some in person.

Thank you for supporting the arts as we all progress through these changing times.”   Susan Romersa

 

 

“Welcome back to this new unsettled world we are living in!  I am glad that your gallery is opening back up, I ‘m sure it’s not been without a lot of new planning and hopefully some joy to be back at it!
Before all of this hit, I was to bring some of my ceramic work and was planning to do so for the June and August shows. 
Please let me know if there is time or space (!) available for me to bring up to 3 pieces and if so, when could I schedule a time to deliver?
My schedule is not as full as it used to be and I would love to make a trip to the beach if that is a possibility!”  Sandy Visse

 

“Just checking in. How are the gallery plans coming for this summer? We have booked a flight to Oregon in June. At any rate we will see you shortly thereafter.  Hopefully things will be open for the usual July Art Walk.”  Paul and LJ.

“Mary and I should be able to make a delivery run to Seaside over the weekend or early next week.

What works for you?  I will have salad bowls and burl show pieces. Mary has paintings.

Let us know when you would like is to show up and we’ll time it right.”  Tom Willing and Mary Burgess

 

It is our hope to continue to bring you informative and regional art notes that provide unique knowledge and inspiration for moving through this extraordinary period of change in our lives. 

 

Fairweather House and Gallery thanks you for your continued support, patience, and assistance as we navigate the ever-changing mandates and requirements.
The more we work together, the faster our community can begin to recover from this crisis.
Strategies that the gallery is implementing to adapt to changes and well being.
These are temporary practices aimed at keeping our community healthy.

Opening Mon, Thu, Fri, Sat, and Sun 12-3:pm

Closed Tue and Wed

Moving forward our hours will remain limited until there is a convincing containment of the coronavirus.

Staying safe.

“The pandemic has made clear the importance of good trauma-informed practices. Art saves. Art helps build resilience and coping skills. Art provides a much needed sense of safety and routine. Art connects with people who might otherwise be isolated and overwhelmed.”

“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.”

Q: Where in the world, recently, was Victoria Brooks, you ask?

A:  “We just returned from our first trip to Africa. It was a photo safari, led by the same instructor we went to Patagonia with a couple of years ago. First we went to the Serengeti, in Tanzania  and then to hike to the gorillas in Uganda.  We saw over 90 lions, almost every imaginable animal native to the area. We stopped at a Maasi Village for a performance and cultural exchange. I hope to paint some of these beautiful people as well as the animals in their environment.”  Victoria Brooks

“I love reading your blogs, looks like the Gallery is the most happening place on earth! I’m very excited about my show with you in July. I’m attaching images of the work I will be bringing. I’m also working on a series of small wave paintings. I will send photos of the waves when I get them. Thanks so much. See you soon.”  Victoria Brooks
