“I like simple relationships. I marvel how complex, at times, these simple arrangements can be. The Oregon Coast presents them everywhere you look – sky, rock, sand, water, wind, wildlife. How a shell sits on the sand catching the light in a certain way. How the setting sunlight backlights and highlights some of the smallest facets in objects that translate into the most complex image. In this project, I limited my palette and, while this is not a new artistic concept, it’s often hard for me to do. I concentrated on shape and relationship to describe what I see where I live. I celebrated the arrangements and how they translate such immense power, beauty and tranquility.”  Gregory Bell

 

CONTRASTS on view through September 25.

 CONTRASTS, an exhibition, showing art from selected regional artists using bright, abstract palettes – electric yellows, brilliant blues, wild reds and shining greens, as well as abstract monotones found only in the natural world.

Featuring contemporary illustrative artists Bill Baily, Gregory Bell, Tanya Gardner, Agnes Field, Sharon Kathleen Johnson, Jan Rimerman, Renee Rowe, Russell J. Young and Zifen Qian.

In addition Renee Hafeman, mid-century jewelry designer, and Gayle H. Seely, mosaic-bead artist, reveal bright, new fall work.

Introducing Monet Rubin and Carolyn Myers Lindberg,  Northwest fused glass artists.

“Thirty years ago I began working with cold glass (non-kiln fused) creating framed mosaic mirrors, mixed media wall hanging and inlaid stepping stone.  After a few years, I desired more creative freedom to experiment with color and discovered the myriad ways that glass reacts and changes when kiln fusing at high temperatures.

I enrolled in class at **Bullseye Glass and used on-line resources.  At about the same my children entered public school with no art, so I began to teach glass therein.  That led to 15 years mentoring high school students designing and making their own fused glass artwork. I brought my experiences to adult education classes at Pacific Northwest College of Art and continue today with a few community venues.

Along the way, I have continued to research, experiment and challenge myself to new technical and visual achievements in fusing glass.  My work ranges from practical to whimsical including bowls, plates, wearable art and wall hanging.” Monet Rubin

 

“A former ceramicist, I have been working in glass since 2012 and recently moved to Seaside from Portland.  I have enjoyed my training through classes at **Bullseye Glass and with Bullseye instructors.  Most of my work is functional because I love not only the look and feel of glass, but I want my creations to be used and held.  Over the years, I have shown have exhibited my work in several Portland area galleries. Like many artists, I find inspiration in nature, whether it is the sea, the sky or the forest and I am constantly surprised by beauty in unexpected places.  I love exploring and experimenting with color and texture that I find in the natural world close to home or in faraway places around the world.” Carolyn Myers Lindberg

 

**Bullseye Glass is a glass manufacturer in Portland, Oregon. The company is a significant supplier of raw art glass for fused glass makers

Five questions for Gayle H. Seely

When did your love of beading begin?
“I am pretty sure my love of beading began the first time I saw beads. I remember admiring Native American beadwork in museums and wanting to learn how to create with beads at a young age. My first beading project was in Junior High when a friend showed me how to make a seed bead daisy chain necklace. It was a real source of pride to get it figured out and looking good, and I liked that feeling.”  

Your favorite beaded piece?
“My most recently completed piece, titled “Stream Bed” is my current favorite. It came from the idea of a block of crisp mountain stream, with a nod to Richard Brautigan’s Trout Fishing in America story about warehousing old chunks of rivers to save and appreciate in the future. I like the idea of sitting this piece of the river on a desktop to provide calming comfort in the midst of a busy workday.”

First piece you designed?
“A Chinese ring necked pheasant with a German shorthaired pointer in a lush green field of alfalfa. It was a fun challenge to use beads to create the feather patterns on this incredible bird contrasting with the green field and revered hunting dog.”

Your source of inspiration?
“Nature, feelings, experiences, color, shapes, conversations…everything goes into my expressions. It provides me a way to examine and reflect upon myself as I see it develop and unfold in the process of creation.”

The one piece of beaded mosaic you wish you owned?
“I really enjoy the work of Zemula Fleming and would be happy to own any of her pieces. I have already purchased nine, and thoroughly enjoy seeing her work as she continues to evolve and grow. I am also very drawn to religious beaded icons and Native American bead regalia and would love to own a piece of history.”
