September 7, 5-7:pm

Opening reception for 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.

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

‘Mystery’ original pen and ink by Vanessa K. Stokes

 

 

“Complete Me” by Vanessa K. Stokes.

Portraiture art work with mirror.

Vanessa Kalani Stokes  creates traditional and original anime (pronounced AH-nee-may) work. The word anime is often defined as “animation from Japan.” When you see “anime,” images of large doe-like eyes, funny and colorful hair, and peculiar fashion come to mind. Outside Japan, anime refers specifically to animation from Japan or as a Japanese-disseminated animation style often characterized by colorful graphics, vibrant characters and fantastical themes. One of the most distinctive characteristics of anime resides in the characters’ faces. While anime characters may possess bodies with relatively proportional body parts, the heads, hair, and facial expressions are usually exaggerated and brightly colored.

“Determination”  original watercolor by Tamara Watanabe

Emerging portraiture artist statement:

“I am not a professional artist, nor do I have an art degree, however, art is an integral part of my life. As a child, reared on a small farm, in the peace and tranquility of the Puyallup valley, I grew to love the arts. Right next door, my grandmother’s art studio buzzed with activity; a place where my first paintings and drawings sprang to life.

As I pursued my formal education, I could not help but add art classes into my schedule. From drawing, to painting, photography and watercolor, it was always there. I took classes for a while from a local artist, Lou Innocenti, in the 90’s. In 2004, I sold an oil painting and was commissioned to paint a larger version of the work. I moved to Hawaii, where I continued to experiment with oils and attended the University of Hawaii as Tropical Plant and Soil Science Major. Right now, though, I am using my love for art and learning and drawing faces to help promote an organization known as faces4hope.” Tamara Watanabe

 

“Exuberance” original watercolor by Tamara Watanabe

“The founders of faces4hope, Holly and Jack Stagge, tell a marvelous story of how these beautiful, brown faces on the Maasailand in Tanzania, Africa captured their hearts. Now, they live to educate young girls who would not otherwise have that chance. The portraits are faces of two young Maasai girls in Tanzania, who have been touched by the love and dedication of Holly and Jack. If I can help spread the word of a severely great need and open up the hearts of others, then my artwork has changed someone’s life near and, hopefully far, and served a greater purpose. I hope you enjoy these beautiful faces. May they light a spark in your heart.” Tamara Watanabe

 

 

On view through May 29.

Introducing emerging artists Tamara Watanabe and Vanessa Stokes.

“Love Tamara Watanbe’s work. She catches the essence of these beautiful young Maasai girls, who, without the work of organizations like Faces4Hope, would be sold into marriage soon. Once married, it would be their responsibility to build the home they would live in and begin having and supporting children. Thank you, Tamara, for these works of love. And thank you, Leah Brooks, for giving yourself over to save these girls.” Boni Webster

Q: How are emerging artists selected by the gallery, you ask?

A: Emerging artists are selected through an audition process and receive gallery mentoring.  Fairweather House and Gallery has championed more than twelve emerging artists. Emerging artists  have taken the risks, embraced the challenges and have continued to be rigorous, disciplined and dedicated in their approach to creation and production.

“Green Flash Terrible Tilly Backsplash”

8 x 10 black ink linoleum block print, over a watercolor painting with hand-deckled edging by Veronica Russell. 1 of 1.

Veronica Russell is a mixed media and block print artist whose works on paper typically center around block printing, over a hand-painted or assembled background. Russell’s current series Life at the Edge depicts classic snapshots one wishes to capture while exploring the intersection of land and sea. Russell hopes to capture a sense of natural wonder we feel when—finally—we see the perfect sunset, or that one elusive coastal creature.

 

Veronica Russell

 

“I’ve been working on more single pieces and focusing more on the block print, a little less on the backgrounds.”

“This way, I thought I might introduce a new block print, having it framed for the show on my favorite background, but may also have it available on one or two different, more simple backgrounds. I want to keep it fresh and new for people browsing in your gallery.”  Veronica Russell

 

2019 Spring Whale Watching Week on Oregon’s Adventure Coast

https://oregonsadventurecoast.com/…/2019-spring-whale-watching-week-on-oregon-s…

Watch For Whales! 2019 Spring Whale Watching Week Is Coming. In late March 2019, up to 20,000 migrating gray whales will start their northbound voyage back to Alaska. Visitors and locals will have a special opportunity to spot them as they pass the Oregon Coast.

Hundreds of Whale Watching Spoken Here® volunteers will be available from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. at 26 whale-watching locations along on the coast the week of March 23rd – 31st, 2019.

 

 

 

 

 

Veronica Russell was introduced at Fairweathers’s as an emerging artist in 2018…

2018 – Fairweather House and Gallery Emerging Artist Hall of Fame Kristin Qian … Trexler Diane Copenhaver Veronica Russell 12th Annual Emerging …

About the artist:

Veronica Russell is a mixed media & block print artist living on the Oregon Coast. Trained in fine arts at Pacific University (Forest Grove), and Clatsop Community College in Astoria, Russell grew up with artistic parents, so she has essentially been creating most of her life.

Her work draws from her deep infatuation with the natural world, particularly the flora and fauna that inhabit the 363-mile stretch of our Oregon coastline.

“I’m also working on a  Seastar piece and a moon jellyfish triptych piece for the show.”

 

“The seastar and the jellies are on smaller blocks, so their finished size will be 7″ x 7″ with the same deckle edges. They will be one-offs, also.”

 

 

 “I can’t thank you enough for coaxing me out of my safe little shell of “playing in art,” onto this path of allowing my creativity into the light and truly creating finished art, ready to share with the world. This is happening in parallel with my personal journey as a 50-something women in this #TimesUp world, and it is incredible. Your mentorship as I learn the “business of being an artist” is invaluable to me and I am so loving this journey. I am forever indebted to you, my friend.”  Veronica
