“All of this made possible within 24 hours with a lot of help from volunteer artists who worked tirelessly Just to name a few: Mary Burgess, Tom Willing, Jane McGeehan, Emily Miller, curator Sara Vickerman and driver Jeff Gage. Thank you to the City of Seaside for saving the parking spaces on Broadway for the caravan of deliveries as it was transported (by SUV’s one trip at a time from the airport hangar/warehouse).”  D. Fairweather

 

Note received
“The Corvallis/OSU run of the Ode to the Tides art exhibit has been a success.   Tina, the La Sells Stewart  Gallery director said there has been a lot of traffic and excitement about the show and pieces sold. The show has now been installed in Seaside at Fairweather Gallery and Beach Books, where it is being promoted as part of the Seaside Art Walk with a harp concert. There will also be a lecture by Neal Maine (local naturalist and photographer) on June 13 at the Library from 6-8 PM.  

 

Thank you all for your involvement in this project, as it is a great opportunity to get people excited about the conservation of our oceans and estuaries through your beautiful art work. Next to the ocean and estuaries themselves, you are the best ambassadors. We are expecting a great turnout of artists in Seaside Saturday for the opening. If you miss Art Walk, hopefully you can make it Seaside before the show closes at the end of June. We are planning lots of special events for later this summer when the show moves to Newport. We will keep you posted.”

R.J. Marx is a leading tenor saxophone stylist, specializing in bebop, swing, hard bop and modern jazz.

 

After classical and jazz studies, Marx attended Berklee College of Music in Boston in the mid-1970s. While pursuing a career in journalism, he maintained a lifelong interest in jazz. He returned to performance in 2001, continuing studies with celebrated jazz pianist Pete Malinverni and saxophonists Ralph Lalama and Charlie Lagond.

Marx, a founding member of the Katonah Studio Jazz Band, appeared regularly at prestige venues throughout the metro New York region.
Moving to the Oregon Coast in 2015, he teamed with guitarist John Orr, drummer Dave Gager and bassist Joe Church to record and produce “The R.J. Marx Quartet,” a collection of hard-driving and contemporary jazz tunes, through Bent Rabbit Records.

As a duo, Marx and Orr appeared in February with jazz great Tom Grant and singer Shelly Rudolph in concert. They gig along the coast and can be heard monthly at WineKraft in Astoria.

As a solo player, Marx weaves a musical history reflecting his influences from swing, bebop and modern jazz, inspired by Coleman Hawkins, Charlie Parker, Sonny Rollins and the greats of American music.

Artist Statement:

Happiness is being outdoors absorbing nature– watching, waiting, sensing, and beginning to notice the poetry of the flow of shapes and colors, the grand design.  Next best are my many reminders and memories of the beauty seen and felt.  A strong wish to share observations leads to ideas, sketches, and choices. 

Sometimes I may feel watercolor best expresses the mood with its depth of color and independent ways of spontaneously creating shapes and textures suggesting nature.  

I have learned to “Let IT do IT”, meaning to allow and appreciate the ways of water with pigment while gently modifying to strengthen the emerging theme.  Watercolor on gesso-primed board or canvas gives more possibilities and can be varnished for protection.

Sometimes varied layers of acrylic paint as well can create intriguing depth and texture.  My paintings can be reminders to you of how refreshing it is to let intuition and experimenting be your guide.

 

 

Celebrating 15 years in 2019, Seaside First Saturday Art Walk is free and is open to the public.

Bev Drew Kindley will offer an artist talk during the opening reception on March 2 at Fairweather’s

Bev Drew Kindley

“I’m a native Oregonian who paints to understand, and enjoy the inspiration of unique moments of light and weather. My impressionistic works of art are to viewed as visual celebrations, connecting with light, color, form, texture and design. It’s my way of communicating with the world. My hope is to encourage appreciate and protection of our heritage and world. 

Learning to paint has been an on-going process since I first began drawing, with further education from Portland State University, Portland Community College and individual workshops…I have been always curious and fascinated with the power of the individual to create.

Exhibiting throughout Oregon, as well as, painting the coastal areas, has encouraged my productivity and experimenting with different medias– oil, gouache, watercolor, pastel and others.

I have taught painting classes and worked in the art business for quite some time. At present, my greater enthusiasm is painting “en plein air”, a French term, meaning to paint working outdoors, and capturing the light without a short time frame because of the immediacy of the experience, as well as, the abundance of visual information along with the possibility of sudden breakthroughs in methods due to improvising.

All of my recent work begins with the experience of the real location, later finished in the studio, oftentimes with the aid of sketches and photos of the location.”  

Education:

Portland State University, degrees in Art and Philosophy
Portland Community College, degree in Art
Independent studies and workshops, including Al Brouilette

Update:

A federal agency and five conservation groups have put together a reward totaling $15,500 for information on the illegal killing of an Oregon wolf in Klamath County.  The wolf, OR-33, died of gunshot wounds in late April but the case was not confirmed until October following tests on the wolf’s DNA.

It is a violation of the federal Endangered Species Act to kill a gray wolf in the western two-thirds of Oregon, along with a violation of Oregon state game laws.

The wolf’s carcass was found about 20 miles northwest of Klamath Falls in Fremont-Winema National Forest, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials said.

“This is a heartbreaking loss for Oregon’s wolves,” said Amaroq Weiss, West Coast wolf advocate at the Center for Biological Diversity, one of the groups that contributed money.

“Wolf recovery in Oregon depends on wolves like OR-33 making their way west and thriving, so his death is a major setback. We hope someone will do the right thing and come forward with information.”

OR-33 was a 4-year-old male gray wolf that dispersed from northeast Oregon’s Imnaha Pack to southwest Oregon, where he became well known.  He was seen by multiple residents, and his photo was captured by a hunter’s trail camera near Emigrant Reservoir, about six miles southeast of Ashland.

“This wolf is acting like David Lee Roth,” said Greg Roberts, a media personality in Southern Oregon said at the time. “I’ve had eight people in Ashland say that they’ve seen him around their property.”

“Hurt No Living Thing”

 

Hurt no living thing;

Ladybird, nor butterfly,

Nor moth with dusty wing,

Not cricket chirping cheerily,

Nor grasshopper so light of leap,

Nor dancing gnat, nor beetle fat,

Nor harmless worms that creep.

— Christina Rossetti

During the opening reception of SHADOWS, Gregory Bell offered an artist talk about the encaustic works depicting the wildlife found in coastal habitat of the area.

 

 

 

 

And, too, during the SHADOWS reception,  the artist was  inspired by FLYNN,   “the handsomest Kestrel around and one of the  WCNC Ambassador Birds!”    I will paint FLYNN next! — Gregory Bell 

 

At the opening reception of  SHADOWS on October 7th there was an  auction  of selected Neal Maine images.  More than $300 was raised in less than five minutes to benefit the  WCNC!!!

 

Wildlife Center of the North Coast (WCNC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit Oregon corporation, that specializes in wildlife rehabilitation of resident and migratory birds, mammals and other wild creatures naturally occurring in Oregon.

WCNC provides primary services to communities along 167 miles of coastline in Oregon and southwest Washington offering humane care and professional medical treatment to sick, injured, orphaned and displaced native wildlife with the goal of releasing healthy wild animals back into their appropriate habitat; offers quality conservation + environmental education programs concerning local wildlife, their ecosystems, and the human impact on these systems and individuals.

Shadows quote by Penelope Culbertson.

 

Penelope Culbertson began her art studies at the Portland Art Museum as a child, in the art department at Cleveland High School, at Reed College with calligraphy master Lloyd Reynolds, at Willamette University in Salem, at the San Francisco Art Institute, and the Institute de Bellas Artes in San Miguel, Mexico.

Penelope was the co-founder of the Art Academy of Kona and the West Hawaii Arts Guild where she served on the Executive Board. Penelope worked in the Hawaii State Artist-in-School program and showed as the Artist-in-Residence at the Hyatt Regency. Her work is in the permanent collection at the Royal Waikoloan Hotel.

Since her return to Portland, Penelope has had seventeen solo exhibits of her watercolors. She showed year round at the Hawthorne Arts Gallery and annually at the Buckman Art Show where she was the founding chairman of the Children’s Art Sale. She taught children’s art classes at the Buckman Arts Magnet Elementary and for the Portland Parks Dept. in their after-school program. In 1999 she helped produce a book of children’s watercolors about the Portland Water System. She was co-founder of The Hawthorne Arts Guild and showed in all their monthly group shows.

 

 

Penelope teaches weekly classes in calligraphy and watercolors for the disabled. She experiments in watercolors, oil pastels, collage, tapestry weaving and calligraphy. She is a member of the Portland Society of Calligraphy. She exhibits her art at Fairweather  Gallery in Seaside, Oregon.

 

Fun facts: 

In Penelope Culberston’s calligraphy class at Reed College there was a fellow student, Steve Jobs (Apple computer founder).

There is a theory that the computers today would not have the font choices without the learning seed  planted by Reed College calligraphy professor Lloyd Reynolds.
