 ‘Shannon’ crystal candle sticks.

Ireland is home to some of the world’s most impressive crystal designs, among them ‘Shannon’  crystal. The craft of Irish crystal making is an art form that has been developed and modified over hundreds of years, going back as far as the Celts, who brought the first glass to Ireland in for jewelry making.

The show covers every aspect of art, textures, materials and finishes, highlighting the quintessentially colorful fall season.

Grace note to the artists…

 

“Shape and Color, Fairweather’s September exhibition, would not be such a success without the beautiful work created by NW hands.  The selected artists provided new work to highlight the annual fall show.  We thank them all for the extraordinary opportunity to tell a seasonal story with their art.  Truly, the artists offered new exceptional work, and by doing so, they encourage those of us in the arts, to do more.”  Fairweather Gallery

And, too, a grace note received from a gallery hostess to share.

“Thank you for the beautiful crystal I picked out for a gift.  Most, of all, thanks for bringing the utmost beauty to many, many people.  Most of all, thanks for inviting me to work in your stunning establishment.  It delights my eyes every time I come in.  Your artists are beyond comparison.” Kemy Kay

A grace note received from an artist.

 

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs.  Ask yourself  what makes you come alive and then do that.  Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” –Howard Thurman, educator and theologian.
“Thank you for your encouragement and support in showing and growing my art.  You have created such a wonderful group of artists, and display our work in beautiful ways.  I am extremely grateful for your friendship and aliveness in out shared vision.”  Gayle H. Seely

September 1, 2018

5-7pm

Fairweather House and Gallery

612 Broadway

Seaside

Opening reception for Color and Shape, an exhibition, featuring new contemporary art from regional artists Bill Baily, Diane Copenhaver, Tanya Gardner, Renée Hafeman, Mike Mason, Emily Miller, Zifen Qian and Jorjett Strumme, as well as  introducing new artists Donna Sanson and Candy Swartz. The show covers every aspect of abstract art, textures, materials and finishes, highlighting the quintessentially colorful fall season.

“Color and Shape are key elements in the language of abstract art.  Both of these elements of design offer infinite possibilities to communicate visually. Both have the power to create an energy that is almost palpable.   Whether cool and calming, warm and energizing, light or dark, color can transport us to another place or time.   Shape can create an illusion, a feeling, or sense of something.  In my current art work, I have used both of these elements of design incorporating colors inspired by the beautiful Oregon coast and explored the continuum of abstraction through shape,” Diane Copenhaver.

Fall habitat lecture by naturalist and wildlife photographer Neal Maine at 6: pm.  Live music by Shirley 88.  Light bites and beverages.

P.S.S.T!!! You have just one week left to see EMERGING art work before our next opening!

 

Gayle H. Seely  spoke during the opening reception of EMERGING, Fairweather’s August exhibition.

“As a four-year emerging artist I am happy to identify with the Latin word emerge. A combination of the sounds ‘e’ for out, and ‘mergere’ meaning dip or immerse. Such an appropriate description of my process: filling all sides of the box with colors, shapes, textures, emotion.

Turning it around and around to see what develops…bringing to mind the Mobius strip:
Discovered by the German mathematician August Ferdinand Mobius in the early 1800’s. “A surface with only one side, formed by giving a half twist to a narrow, rectangular strip of paper and then pasting its two ends together.”

 

Give it a try…let the twist be room for creativity and apply the idea to your day, to enliven your moments.” Gayle H. Seely

“Fresh: flourishing, active and new.”  Gayle H. Seely

 

“Lately, I’ve been fascinated by the idea of objects as functional, not in how they hold liquid or whatever, but in how they hold history.” Tim Christensen, potter

“There are very few human beings who receive the truth, complete and staggering, by instant illumination. Most of them acquire it fragment by fragment, on a small scale, by successive developments, cellular, like a laborious mosaic.” Anaiis Nin

“The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” Marcel Proust

“He paints like a man going over the top of a hill, singing.” THE ART SPIRIT Robert Henri

 

“Have fun, enjoy your creativity, and surround yourself with beauty.” Gayle H. Seely

Thank you, Eve Marx, reporter, for Coast Weekend!
