It is welcome news that Fairweather House and Gallery is able to announce that it is entering Phase Two of Oregon’s reopening plan!

Beginning June 6th restrictions imposed statewide last March to help fight the coronavirus pandemic will be relaxed. 

 

 

Fairweather House and Gallery thanks you for your patience as we continue navigate the ever-changing requirements.
The more we work together, the faster our community will recover from this crisis.
Fairweather House and Gallery
612 Broadway
Seaside, Oregon
Open Mon, Thu, Fri, and Sat 11- 4:pm

 Sun 12-3:pm

And, so, throughout Oregon’s Phase 2 plan our hours will remain somewhat limited until there is a convincing containment of the coronavirus.

Closed Tue and Wed until July 2020.

Please read through the  information below as it will help you understand how best to visit us and what your experience will be like during Phase Two of Re-opening.

We will utilize the following ways to ensure social distancing and to reduce the possibility of infection for you, our staff and our community:

  • Gallery areas will be marked  with 6′ social distancing stickers, which will help guide safe distances between guests
  • A hand sanitizing station will be available at the front entrance.
  • The number of guests in the gallery will be limited to 6 at one time.
  • A pair of complimentary disposable gloves will be available for your convenience.
  • Staying safe, be advised that our staff will be wearing protective masks.

All proven practices aimed at keeping everyone healthy.

We are keeping close track of key COVID-19 indicators in our area and will be ready to make any adjustment needed to keep safe and well.

The last thing we want is to see a spike in the number of cases.

Kate Brown, Oregon Governor:

 

“Phase 2 will likely be a long-lasting step of Oregon’s reopening plan.

 

Health officials say that counties won’t see Phase 3 until at least September — and possibly further — until a reliable treatment or vaccine is available. 

For now, face coverings, regular hand washing and social distancing will be a part of daily life through the summer.” 

 

Grace note received

 

June 04, 2020

Dearest Fairweather friends,

I look forward to your blog posts and I admire how well you support and promote your town and your artists. You are the soul of integrity and graciousness. I think of you often, especially now and hope my offer will be a tiny way of thanking you for the many years I have had my Celtic jewelry at the Fairweather gallery.

There are pieces of my jewelry at the gallery. I would be pleased if you could take the proceeds and make a donation to a cause you care about in your community.  In the scheme of things I’d feel better knowing that in a tiny way I can thank you for the many years we have done business together and for your appreciation of your artists, customers and staff.

I wish you the very best in all aspects of your life, please stay safe and keep well.

With immense gratitude,

Most sincerely,

Mary Hurst

 

 

And, so it goes forward.

Mary Hurst’s letter of gratitude and encouragement moves into a ‘Doing Good Works’ plan to help others during a difficult time.

An artist’s generous gesture will be honored.

Proceeds from Mary Hurst Ryan’s jewelry will be given in support of our local food banks.

Summer Breeze by Helen Brown

Watercolor on rice paper mounted on canvas
12″ x 12″
$350

“I love the texture and look of watercolor on rice paper.  In my paintings, I use a batik process where I apply a resist to the paper (molten wax) over previously applied colors that I really like. That preserves that color from any further glazing. The result is a luminous, transparent painting.” HB

 

Helen Brown is a former French language instructor turned artist. She teaches watercolor painting and is a member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon. Helen has been the recipient of many awards for her watercolor landscape paintings, and many other subjects.

 

“Jubilee” by Mary Burgess

$350

Watercolor 10″ x 10″, framed 20″ x 20″

 

Mary Burgess is a watercolor artist living and working in Oregon. After teaching High School Art classes she began her second career as a professional watercolor artist and painting instructor.

 

 

 

“My paintings are about joyful experiences. As a long time bird watcher, hiker and nature enthusiast, I love the challenge of capturing the essence of each little creature and enjoy painting each as a ‘portrait’. A bee and a butterfly are often the subject on my easel, and are captured through the spontaneity of the dynamic medium of watercolor.”  —Mary Burgess

 

 

 “Rose City Blossoms” by Mary Burgess

Watercolor on cradled panel

12″ x 12″ x 1.5″

$275.

 

“Mary Burgess is especially interested in the effect of light and shadow in her work.  Each painting is begun with a colorful wash which acts to provide unity in the paintings and masterful color shifts reflect the subtleties found in nature. The paint is glazed, one layer over another to achieve a rich and complex color palette.”

 

Mary Burgess  and Helen Brown, both well-known Oregon artists, are sisters.

Mary Burgess is married to woodturner Tom Willing, another Fairweather artist.

Mary Burgess and Tom Willing have a flock of four chickens.

And, too, Melissa Jander’s painting “Lively Gathering” won “Best of Show” from Women Artists of the West.

Jane Hunt, a Master Signature Member was the show judge and offered these kind comments:

“This piece epitomizes the expression ‘painting light’. You can almost feel the air in this piece and that coupled with clever composition, strong drawing and nuanced color harmony makes the viewer keep coming back.”

“One of my favorite places to go when visiting Seaside, Oregon is Fairweather House & Gallery. Owner Denise Fairweather is a celebrated Interior Designer and also a Master Gardener. Her gallery is a showcase of her fresh and contemporary style and is a beautiful sanctuary of art, furniture and home accessories…so inspiring! While we are waiting to be able to visit again, she is still curating her monthly art shows. I’m honored to be featured this month for “Summer Served.” — Melissa Jander

“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.

A curatorial virtual NW exhibiton titled ‘In Full Bloom’

Fairweather House and Gallery brings together artists’ works in a variety of genres and interpretations, grouping them into an on-line spectrum of theme and color.

Featuring art by Jo Pomeroy Crockett, Christine Downs, Bev Drew Kindley, Dorota Haber-Leligh, Greta Lindwood, Melissa Jander, Carmela Newstead, and Zifen Qian.

“I love flowers. If I could, I would have flowers for dessert and live in a greenhouse surrounded by them. I actually crave flowers for their lovely colors, textures, fragrance, and beauty,   D. Fairweather, galleriest

Featured floral art work includes botanical, realism, abstraction, and surrealism.

Research has found that being around flowers increases the level of compassion that they feel for others and are more willing to extend a helping hand to those in need.

Art can be purchased and picked-up by curbside appointment or delivered free locally.

Contact gallery curator @fairweatherkd@gmail.com or message on FB @fairweatherhouseandgallery

We will see you, hopefully, on the other side of the pandemic crisis.

 

 

Just viewing floral art causes joy in the same way as walking in nature and losing oneself in music.

“For if you think art is not necessary try to spend time without music, books, poems, movies and… art.”

Sharing a video recently posted by North Coast Land Conservancy.

 

 

Thank you for reading about the arts in Seaside.

Hopefully … late spring 2020

612 Broadway, Seaside Oregon

Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our community.
We are in this together.

In the meantime, we are offering a video about the arts and artists at Fairweather’s during the opening reception of Fresh Start, an exhibition.

Enjoy the virtual tour created today by Linda Fenton-Mendenhall.

Indeed, she is at home working and following the Oregon Stay Home/ Save Lives order.

Although,  we are dismayed over the worldwide pandemic crisis, about our gallery being shut, and about not being able to serve our community in person at this time, we hope that you will find comfort in the season of spring in this time of darkness.

We hope to see you on the other side of this…possibly in late spring 2020.
