“Buoy Composition” by Paul Brent, oil on canvas, 24 x 36/ with frame 29 x 41

Location: Seaside, Oregon with Tillamook Head in the background


Q: What are buoys, you ask?

A:  Generally associated with fishing and boating activities (recreational or commercial), a buoy floats at the surface and is moored to the bottom. Brightly colored buoys are used for the marking of crab pot locations so the person fishing for crabs can find their traps. Crab pot buoys come in various sizes, shapes, and colors. › articles › oregon-shellfish-regulations…
Oregon has over 360 miles of coastline — that’s a big sandbox for crabbing… Crabbing is available at the 12th Street Bridge in downtown Seaside…

“Please accept our sincere thanks for the excellent support provided by the Fairweather Gallery in organizing the Paul Brent art exhibit at the library.  Your efforts contributed substantially to the quality of  the overall exhibit.  As curator of Paul’s exhibit, I would like to personally add that is was such a pleasure to work with you. 


The success of Paul’s art exhibit was due, in no small part, to the expertise provided by you.  Thank you for your professionalism and continued support of the Seaside Library and Art Committee.” Tess Ratty/ The Seaside Library Art Committee

“Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life”. Oscar Wilde

Reality is the world or the state of things as they actually exist, as opposed to an idealistic or notional idea of them.
The COVID-19 shutdown,  a pause, a reality,  a stumbling block,  gave many the time to place safety standards in place for the common good.

Fairweather House and Gallery shut its doors mid-March following the Governor’s order that nonessential retailers and services must be closed.


“At a moment when our physical location is closed due to the health crisis, online viewing is offered as a primary means to present art and to connect with art enthusiasts,”  galleriest D. Fairweather.

Soon, we hope to be on the other side of the pandemic crisis.

The arts play a vital role in supporting tourism efforts in our community, and while we are currently in a holding pattern,

there is no time like the present for a bit of looking back and, hopefully, for moving forward.

We will continue sharing and connecting in the arts with the artists and you.

“This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never all dried at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn and gloaming, on seas and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.”
– John of the Mountains: The Unpublished Journals of John Muir, (1938), page 438.

Q; Who was John Muir, you ask?

A: John Muir was an influential Scottish-American naturalist, author, environmental philosopher, glaciologist, and early advocate for the preservation of wilderness in the United States of America. John Muir was perhaps this country’s most famous and influential naturalist and conservationist. He taught the people of his time and ours the importance of experiencing and protecting our natural heritage.

John Muir was  founder of The Sierra Club and is called the father of the National Parks in the United States.

Outdoor garden **folly filled with  cattail dyed green spheres and handmade moss decorative moss spheres.


**Q:  What is a garden folly, you ask?

A: A garden folly is usually considered a building or structure that is designed for decoration with no other purpose than to add a touch of whimsy or extravagance to the surrounding landscape. The term began as “a name for any costly structure considered to have shown folly in the builder” and was often named after the individual who commissioned or designed the project. The connotations of silliness or madness in this definition are in accord with the general meaning of the French word “folie”; however, another older meaning of this word is “delight.”

Photos by Linda Fenton-Mendenhall.


“This exhibit’s expectation lies in its possibility to present fresh, new perspectives, inspiration, experiences, reflection and even the possibility for transcendence in some way. Indeed, the meaning of “fresh start” is the beginning of a new period or step.  The North Coast land, truly, is in full springtime bloom for FRESH START, Fairweather’s March exhibition.”

“GO PLACIDLY amid the noise and the haste. Remember what peace there may be in silence. Whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.” –M. Ehrmann/ 1927

Hammered silver pendant with sand dollar fossil stone.

Under a mouth blown cloche- hornet’s nest placed on a vintage tray at D. Fairweather’s home  (a personal and private collection).


January 2020 designer notes:

“For inspiration, turn to nature.  Display shed antlers, moss, branches, deeply imprinted fossils, seashells and inert hornets’ nests. 

A collection in natural history is a pleasing and perfect design element. Collect things that have character and have a story to tell.  A collection starts with a desire to live with beautiful things.

Find one thing that that has character, add another interesting item which will lead to another kind of object.  Embrace being authentic and real. 

Pare down, edit to LUXE, rugged and peaceful items and  remove layers of disputed origins.  Embrace genuine, pleasing and natural items.  Live with want you desire.”

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.”

“Made” an exhibition for the one-of-a-kind and the unexpected works made by Northwest hands. Alluring, distinctive and exquisite products, never-before-seen, with just the right dose of imperfection to suggest a human element in the creative process.

“This is the time of year, before the gift-giving season, the gallery digs a bit deeper into the subject of the handmade, with a reverence for artisans who are producing exclusive objects, artisans who have made craft cool and luxurious.”

Featuring harp maker Duane Bolster, basket maker Carol Bolster, wood worker Mike Brown, calligrapher Penelope Culbertson, glass maker Christine Downs, paper crane maker Peggy Evans, quilt maker Cherry Jones Harris, maker of pottery Suzy Holland and mixed media maker JoAnn Pari-Mueller.

Welcoming pine needle artisan Martha Denham and wood turner Tom Willing.

Introducing metalsmith Nikki Hall and potter Marcia Hudson.

“Every design by metalsmith Nikki Hatt starts with an original idea, sketched out to create an exquisite handmade piece of jewelry. Smithing is one of the oldest metalworking occupations. Shaping metal by forging with a hammer is the archetypical component of smithing. Handmade jewelry is literally just that, made by the “hands” of the artisan or maker. The pieces are soldered, sawed, carved and shaped without the use of mass produced manufacturing machinery.” 

Grace note:

“My daughter had a lot of nice things to say about your gallery and I look forward to being a part of it. I am happy to curate what I send to the theme of your store. Here is a little bit about me: I teach metal smithing. I have been making jewelry for about 12 years. I hand craft every piece. Each piece is one of a kind. I use high quality materials and craftsmanship.”  NH
