BLOOM, an exhibition at Fairweather’s through April. “It’s like living inside a garden, the gallery is layered  with colorful accessories, beautiful artworks, and gorgeous garden books.”

So lovely.  So perfect.  So right.  

Photo layout  by Fairweather artist and Seaside Art Walk photographer, Linda Fenton-Mendenhall featuring  the April  2017 salon-style display of art.

Selected BLOOM artists in salon style gallery display, left to right:   floral oil on linen art by Michael Muldoon,  still life oil on linen by Melissa Jander,  landscape pastels by Gretha Lindwood, encaustic (painting in beeswax) by emerging artist Rebecca Gore, abstract floral pastels by Gretha Lindwood, emerging artist mermaids in sea florals by emerging artist Ashley Howarth, and “Garden Party” tulips and hyacinths  original oil by Melissa Jander.

A round of applause for BLOOM, an exhibition at Fairweather’s throughout the month of April! You  introduced an imaginative way of displaying many diverse  NW artists.  The artwork brings together design drama in extraordinary intimacy and charm that creates a feeling of a springtime garden stroll. Thank you!” — Bonnie W.

Q: What is salon style display in the context of a gallery exhibition, you ask?

A:  Hanging art salon-style can be a dramatic and brave  way to decorate a wall, placing a range of art with unusual dimensions to create an interesting effect.   Neutral walls are considered a perfect way to cleanse the palette for the eye in  salon-style display.

Roseway by Gretha Lindwood,  pastel

“Thus in art, does nature work through the will of a man filled with the beauty of her first works,” wrote the 19th-century poet Ralph Waldo Emerson. And so it does. Emerson’s simple musing captures the spirit of  painters, who sing nature’s praises with their brushes and palette knives.

“The use of vibrant color and strong design are hallmarks of my work which I developed during my career as an illustrator and graphic designer. As a lifelong resident of the Pacific Northwest, I cherish our unique landscapes honed by water and time and delight in capturing their beauty in the lush colors of pastels or oils to share with the viewer.” —Gretha Lindwood, featured artist for BLOOM, an exhibition at Fairweather’s throughout April, 2017.

And, too, on April 1st, Bev Drew Kindley offered a Painting Seaside LIVE ™ event at the opening of BLOOM, an exhibition throughout April at Fairweather’s.

In addition, the artist, Bev Drew Kindley, with dual degrees in art and philosophy, offered a lecture of being in the moment while painting nature  during the opening reception of BLOOM at Fairweather’s on April 1st.

  “Thanks, Denise, I am proud to be part of your artistically designed BLOOM show and enjoy seeing how you fit all our paintings in among the other unique treasures.      BLOOM to me is about the time after this year’s dark  season when plants reawaken and we feel like celebrating each hopeful victory–the first faint coloring of new leaves and branches, (like my painting “Awakening Wetlands “), the first crocus, daffodils, tulips and wildflowers for  “The Joy of Spring “.        Sometimes we need a bouquet of flowers to keep our spirits up–or a pot of bright cyclamen –or photos of flowers to remind us there is more to come. Soon the steady rhythm of blooming begins, each flower in its own time, and then on to fields of lavender, crimson clover and more!  Flowers do make us happy!”

The language of flowers…

A team of researchers explored the link between flowers and life satisfaction in a study of participants’ behavioral and emotional responses to seeing flowers, either in a bouquet or in nature. The results show that flowers are a natural and healthful moderator of moods.

“What’s most exciting about this study is that it challenges established scientific beliefs about how people can manage their day-to-day moods in a healthy and natural way,” said Jeannette Haviland-Jones, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology at Rutgers and lead researcher on the study.

Growing flowers, handling flowers, seeing flowers in art have an immediate impact on happiness. All study participants expressed smiles upon being near flowers, demonstrating extraordinary delight and gratitude. The language of flowers have a long-term positive effect on moods.
Flowers and nature make intimate connections. The presence of flowers led to increased contact with family and friends.

“Common sense tells us that flowers make us happy,” said Dr. Haviland-Jones. “Now, science shows that not only do flowers and nature make us happier than we know, they have strong positive effects on our emotional well-being.”

 

And, too, a favorite quote in art by Penelope Culbertson, calligrapher for BLOOM, an exhibition at Fairweather’s through April.

BLOOM grace note received:

“Thank you for inviting me to participate in this fun event in your beautiful gallery. I had a wonderful time visiting with the gallery visitors as I created my pastel painting in a live painting demonstration.” Best regards, Gretha Lindwood, artist

“I’m working on new pieces for June. Thanks for the sweet and supportive card you sent.
It was the nicest card I’ve ever gotten from a gallery!”
Penelope Culbertson

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

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

Recap:

In Full Flower opening reception, an exquisite exhibition through the month of May featuring the perfection of flowers depicted in art and display. Flowers are nature’s gift, dating back at least 125 million years. “Most importantly, flowers commemorate all the passages in our life. They express renewal and hope in a single bloom.”—Denise Fairweather

Fairweather’s introduces new artists Rebecca Gore and Savvy Dani to the gallery. Rebecca Gore’s paintings are done with acrylics and or oil, with cold wax incorporated as a finish. Paintings include the human form within a landscape of flowers. The style ranges (often in the same piece) from a loose realism to stylized or lyrical abstraction.

Cold wax medium is a medium composed mainly of beeswax with a small amount of to aid in drying time, for use with oil paint. It has a soft, paste-like consistency and adds body, increases transparency, does not require the special ventilation and allows the artist to build up textural effects.

Savvy Dani, Seattle artist, is classically trained visual artist and presents art work depicting cluster blooms amid greenery luminously painted. In addition living works of flowers will be showcased in a veritable collection vignettes created by interior designer/ gallery owner Denise Fairweather to compliment new floral art from accomplished regional artists Melissa Jander, Paul Brent, Lori Wallace-Lloyd, Joanna Donaca and Kathryn Delany and more.

Resident artist Michael Muldoon will offer a Seaside Painting LIVE ™ episode completing a quick finish painting. Seaside/ Gearhart nature photographer Neal Maine introduces his latest natural history journal of images and will speak at 6:pm. Wine tasting, light bites and live music by Shirley Smith-Yates will be provided throughout the evening. Gifts to all patrons.
