“Habitat” beaded mosaic box by Gayle H. Seely

 

 

The ancient methods of mosaic and beading are combined with fresh, modern energy and emotions to create intricate, colorful boxes of delight.

 

 

 

 

“Take a moment to discover the peace of mind to be found in these delicate expressions of love and happiness.” –Gayle H. Seely

 

“Freedom” beaded box by Gayle H. Seely, 2017.

 

 

“Gayle’s  artwork is not passive: it directly challenges the façade of pretense and completely eradicates narratives bound in familiar human patterns. She beautifully reshapes living things and elements, interweaving them with our individual stories and understandings in order to create a delightfully fresh arrival to a place once unknown.” Tina Miller Anders, art patron, Fairweather House and Gallery.

Seed pearl box

 

Gayle’s boxes, created in hand applied seed pearls, and decorated with translucent agates, micro river stones, often studded in gemstones, are set as a picture within a story. The underside of each unique box is decorated in a companion work of art with  seed pearls.

 

“Thanks for your all help promoting my work and encouraging my development.”
Sincerely, Gayle H. Seely, February 2018

Here is the quote I shared in my artist talk. It is from Concerning the Spiritual in Art by Wassily Kandinsky. –Gayle H. Seely

“Colour is a power which directly influences the soul. Colour is the keyboard, the eyes are the hammers, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand which plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul.”

 

 

Gayle H. Seely offers a personal one-to-one time with an art patron during the opening of COLOR IT FALL, an exhibition at Fairweather’s through Sept. 30th.

Featured in the display cabinet, found for Fairweather’s by artist Paul Brent, seed pearl mosaics by Gayle H. Seely,  vintage jewelry by Renee Hafeman, beaded  cuffs by Elaine Sawyer and leather purses by Luans Leathers.

Paul Brent  recently said “you must have this cabinet! We put your name on it for you.”

Thank you, Paul and Lana Jane Brent.  Thank you, Tina Cook/ John Cook Glass Studio

 

 

“Thank you for all your hard work presenting such a wonderful group of artists. I thoroughly enjoyed the Art Walk on Saturday and met some great folks; shoppers and fellow artists.”  Gayle H. Seely

Artist statement:
“One bead at a time, continuing the ancient process of creation – layering multiple parts into a unified whole. Allowing the flow of colors, shapes and textures to combine with inner thoughts, feelings and desires to create meaningful expressions. Each box covered in agates, beads and trinkets wrapping around the sides and back. A joyful treasure to behold.” Gayle H. Seely

Art Review:
“Beading is an ancient process of creation, allowing colors, shapes and textures to combine with inner thoughts and feelings to create external meaningful expressions. All you need to know is where to put the next bead.” Tina Miller

Emerging artists have taken risks and embraced challenges.  

Indeed, emerging artists  are rigorous in their approach to creation and production.

Emerging Northwest artists  have some evidence of professional achievement but not a substantial record of accomplishment.  

Emerging artists introduced  at Fairweather’s are not recognized as established artists by other artists, curators, and galleries.

And, so, it goes forward!

Introducing emerging artist Ashley Howarth, 2017.

“After graduating from Oregon State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts , life experiences have given me an appreciation  for the Pacific Northwest and the natural world which has, in turn, provided me with the basic foundation for my artistic choices.

I want to push the boundaries of the mediums I work with to create art that draws in the viewer. I also want to continue developing my understanding of color and explore combinations in my palette to create a harmonious piece. Although, up until this point the natural world has been my main source of inspiration, as well as my love to imagine a fantasy world where past myths, legends and stories come to life in my mediums.

As I continue to grow I will always strive to push my boundaries and continue to bloom as a young emerging artist.” – Ashley Howarth

Mermaid and Moon Intaglio first edition. 

Q:  What is intaglio art, you ask?

A:  In intaglio printing, the image is etched into a metal plate by using a cutting tool to engrave. To print an intaglio plate, ink is applied to the surface to push the ink into the recessed lines.

Damp  paper is placed on the plate, so that when going through the press the damp paper will be able to be squeezed into the plate’s ink-filled grooves.  The rolling press applies high pressure to push the paper into the grooves on the plate, then lifted, revealing the paper and printed image.–Ashley Howarth

Q:  What is a screen print, you ask?

A:  Screen printing is a printing technique where mesh screen is used to transfer ink onto paper, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. One color is printed at a time, creating layers of colors that work together to create a composition.–Ashley

 

 

Snowy Fox. Lino cut by Ashley Howarth.

Q:  What is a lino cut print, you ask?

A: A lino cut relief printing is a process where you carve away the negative space to create a positive image by carving away protruding surface from the plate; after the surface is inked and printed onto paper. –Ashley

“The mermaids in the front window look great! It’s nice seeing my work up where everyone can see them. They look wonderful at night with the spot light on them. I came back on a recent evening with my family and they thought that they looked great up in the window display, as well. Thank you again, I really appreciate all the help and guidance.”   –Ashley Howarth

 

 

 

Q:  What is an emerging artist, you ask?

A:   “The term emerging refers to artistic development, professional accomplishment, and recognition. Emerging artists take risks and embrace challenges; are rigorous in their approach to creation and production; have some evidence of professional achievement but not a substantial record of accomplishment; and are not recognized as established artists by other artists, curators, and galleries. Fairweather House and Gallery has sought to support emerging regional artists who show significant potential.” –Denise Fairweather, gallerist.
