PLACE-BASED Exhibition 

On display July 3-25

Fairweather House and Gallery

612 Broadway

Seaside, Oregon

Fairweather Gallery’s July exhibition PLACE-BASED, an art show and sale, involves a focus on the importance and uniqueness of place. 

While selecting the artworks to local context will appeal to the summertime tourists and visitors, behind the  exhibit is an understanding that fosters regional artists and their connection within the community. The exhibit doubles down on a link with the history of both place and keeping close tabs on how artists are based in visual story telling.

Featuring Northwest artists Barbara Bacon Folawn, Paul Brent, Victoria Brooks, Pam Haunschild, Bev Drew Kindley, Phil Juttlestad, Lee Munsell, Jan Shield, and Sharon Kathleen Johnson.

Seaside Painting LIVE ™ episode by Paul Brent throughout the evening

Grace note received May/ 2021

I’ve selected new work for the gallery . I would be happy to speak during the reception in July. I’m looking forward to having a fun and prosperous summer! Best regards, Victoria Brooks

Grace note received June/ 2021

Thank you for the beautiful job on the blog article! See you soon. Hugs, Victoria

 

With 2020 on its way out, our top ten collection is complete!

Number 10:  Masked hostesses and patrons!

 

Number 9: Fairweather’s welcomed back visitors with the promise of a safe experience after the pandemic shutdown.

 

 

Number 8: New 2020 artists that chose Fairweather’s.

 

Number 7: A farewell to artists departing the area.

 

Number 6: We renewed our support of NCLC following the reopening after the pandemic shutdown. Indeed, in 2020, it was more important than ever to keep up with our mission.

“Fairweather House and Gallery attends to the well-being of family, community and business through an uncompromising commitment to honesty, fairness, integrity, and excellence.”

 

Number 5: Fairweather artists who made 2020 the headlines, magazine covers, and news.

 

Number 4: We continued to engage the community in uplifting artist lectures.

 

 

Number 3: We found ways to experiment on smaller projects.  Fairweather artists pivoted to make art masks. Surely, adapting is nothing new for artists know how to mold art to fit new opportunities. 

 

 

Number 2: Quarantine, although stressful, gave the Gallery time to think more about how art, and specifically, the role of art can have on the global conversation. And, so, we created a new exhibition, November’s WILD BEAUTY, after reaching out to colleagues, partners, and artists introducing art beyond regional works to engage with hopeful messaging.

 

 

 

Number One:  Fairweather virtual show. SHORE THING. All things Seaside.

Produced by Linda Fenton-Mendenhall.

Gallery visitor recently spotted artist Bev Drew Kindley photographing her HELLO SUNSHINE art on display.

Sharing a few August artist grace notes:

Artists were prepared for the emotional challenges that come with a predominantly remote means for creating work during COVID-19.

“One unforeseen emotional benefit of the pandemic has been the recognition of an innate need for authenticity. The trust we place in each other at these vulnerable moments gives us a better sense of empathy.”  A. Schneider/ August, 2020

“Thank you for the article on following your passion. It was a wonderful read. I agree, more than ever, supporting artists and small businesses are  important. I know you are continuing to have support from visitors and your community.  I’m nearly finished with a piece that works well with your future shows. Coming soon. Best regards. –Diane Copenhaver

“Primordial Bay” abstract by Martha Lee

30″ x 30″

Thank you for your lovely note about my painting “Primordial Bay.” It was so uplifting. I have read it over at least 25 times and will read it every day. How thoughtful of you to reach out to me. I do hope that the planning for ongoing exhibitions is going well.  I  thank you that my paintings will be continued to be welcome in your elegant gallery. I treasure our connection to the arts.”   –Martha  Lee

Fairweather Gallery has been the place for cultural art gatherings, art talks, music events, art education, artist socializing,; indeed, it is a perfect event space to throw that perfect party. First and foremost,  however, it is an art gallery.

Throughout the years, many people have visited the gallery, locals and people from out of town, to enjoy the beautiful surroundings, art, music, wine tastings, listen to an inspiring artist talk, and, oftentimes, to offer a comforting ear about a good works event (Arctic Light/ Beaver Tales/ Ode to the Tides).

And, so, it goes forward, while maintaining balance during a pandemic within the arts community, Fairweather continues to develop a list of best practices following approved guidelines. The Gallery has taken into account a continuing shift moving on …with more steps forward with each passing month in offering after-hours arts events. What is on hold, until there is a containment of the virus is the LIVE music and wine tastings,  thereby keeping everyone safe and healthy.

What remains, and, truly, what is most important, is the art, artists, uplifting stories, and sense of community while observing social distancing practices.

Opening Reception

OVER and UP Exhibition

Sept. 5th, 5-7 p.m.

Featuring Northwest artists Paul Brent, Victoria Brooks, Patricia Clark-Finley, Pam Haunschild, Bob Kroll, Martha Lee, Jan Rimerman, Emily McNeil, Neal Maine, and Peg Wells.

“Surf Play” 16 x 20 original oil on linen by Victoria Brooks

 

 

“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

 

 

“Splash” 20 x 16 original oil on linen by Victoria Brooks

“Beach Ballet” 11 x 14 original oil on linen by  Victoria Brooks

 

“A graceful woman strolls along a beach alone, the wind teasing her hair… sun-washed children discover treasures translucent, breaking waves have tossed ashore… a monumental rock formation, bathed in a kaleidoscope of hues by the setting sun, stands guard where sea meets land and day meets night…” VB

Victoria Brooks and her art on display at Fairweather’s.

After a successful career and many national awards as an art director in television and motion pictures, she pursued her love of painting, which she has been doing for 25 years.

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.”
