PLACE-BASED Exhibition

Fairweather House and Gallery

Seaside, Oregon

An exhibition that involves a focus on the importance and uniqueness of place. 

While selecting the artworks to local context will appeal to the summertime tourists and visitors, behind the exhibit is an understanding that fosters regional artists and their connection within the community. The exhibit doubles down on a link with the history of both place and keeping close tabs on how artists are based in visual story telling.

17-68 vase

A technique known as drop-out which was used to create this hand made vase by carefully managing heat, time and gravity to stretch and shape glass in a kiln. A technique that  was combined with strip-construction to create a dramatically patterned piece in the colors of red, white, blue, black and purple.   Bob Heath, glass artist

9-60b

My primary technique is fused glass, but that covers a broad range. I am mostly known for strip-construction work that features geometric patterns with bright colors, strong lines and sharp contrasts. Very often my intricate designs require the creation of multiple component pieces that are fused separately and then cut, shaped and fused together to create the wholeMy work is typically very colorful and often features geometric patterns with strong lines and sharp contrasts. Edges and rims are cold-worked and polished to give them a professional finish.

“My engineering background expresses itself in my glass artwork, both in terms of design influence and in the precision and attention to detail that I strive for in my glass creations.

I have active part of the Oregon glass community, serving on the board of directors of the Oregon Glass Guild since 2005, and as its state president.

Oregon is home to many glass artists, due in large part to the presence of several of the world’s major manufacturers of raw art glass materials and numerous glass schools.

Bob Heath has had the opportunity to study with many of the leading artists in the field including; Avery Anderson, Patty Gray, Marty Kremer, Richard LaLonde (a cousin of the gallerist), Peter McGrain, Robert Oddy, Stan Price and Raphael Schnepf.

I really enjoy working with the process of fusing glass and like to try and accomplish things beyond the ordinary. My work is carefully planned, starting out as a detailed drawing. I  try out multiple variations on each idea and to think through the steps that I will use to implement the design in glass. The complexity of the design requires that I start by creating multiple individual components that are fused separately, and then cut and shaped before ultimately being fused together to create the whole. After the work is fused, it is cold-worked to achieve a professional finish on the surface and edges that brings out the inherent beauty of the glass.  Bob Heath, glass artist

ON YOUR MARKS

by Gayle H. Seely

  Every December Fairweather House and Gallery sends out the next year’s Art Walk themes. There is always one that jumps in front of the rest. This past year I switched from working with beads and stones to drawing on boxes with oil markers.

So “On your marks” was the perfect theme to create around.

 

I am exploring this new medium, having fun “marking” with color, wrapping layers around the sides to create full, vividly colorful pieces. My square boxes include tiny vases, a way to customize each piece and “make your mark” by adding your choice of feather.

Some of the feathers here are from birds I have harvested with my “marksmanship“. 

My larger companion piece is a way to share a story or awaken a memory in the viewer. Like a poem or a song in a visual, colorful language.”Gayle H. Seely

 

“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

 

“If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough.”

“On your marks”  a command given to runners at the beginning of a race in order to get them into the correct position to start. In the words of the Fairweather exhibition, it “ means to begin something, indicating the arts season is opening for the summertime”. 

“For by the coastal summer season, is that nothing is enjoyed without community, without creative collaboration, without pure joy, and resolute faith in living safely and sharing generously with friends, family, and visitors.”  FH&G

The show offers a fresh and dynamic experience with new art specially created for the upcoming summer season.

   I hail from California and my two loves are buying bulbs and shoes with flowers on them.”  Mary Lyn Gough

About the artist:

Like any artist, as a child, I started by painting on the walls. 

I sold my first painting in 7th grade. Won 1st prize in the County Fair 5 times in a row. Creating a balance of right & left-brain hemispheres, I collected a few college degrees. I received income in my college years by selling art.  MLG

Art is a luxury we all can afford. I have the experience of witnessing people find the right artwork. Being both a maker and seller of art- I worked at LaHina Gallery in San Francisco. You can tell when someone falls in love with a piece by their expression, body language. Somehow helping them and sharing in that experience of discovery – that Ahaa moment- was compelling. MLG

“Spring Pageant” watercolor 23 x 30 framed by Mary Lyn Gough

“Watercolors have the transparency of oils and a vibrancy of acrylics with the beguiling nature of water. Painting with watercolors is an attempt to control the uncontrollable.” MLG

Arching Glory” 23 x 30 watercolor by Mary Lyn Gough

You can teach the basics of structure, the technique of any art process, however, to access the 7th element within cannot be taught. It comes from your soul or intestines, depending on the day.

It is like Picasso, who during his Blue Period, mastered techniques which allowed him to break all the rules and create Cubism.”  MLG

Making do.

Hands-on art like sewing, paper folding, and painting has gained traction as relaxing alternatives to screen-heavy activities going forward into the 2nd COVID year.

Indeed, art enhances the overall quality of life, generates a better environment for sheltering in place, allows more accommodations for those joyful moments at home, and inspires more make-it-work creativity..”  FH&G

The Green Room

Fairweather House and Gallery

612 Broadway St.

Seaside, Oregon

Fittingly, the first Fairweather presentation of the year, for the month-long exhibit, the GREEN ROOM, spotlights art by regional fellow gallerists.

In the entertainment business, the green room is the space in a theatre or similar venue that functions as a waiting room and lounge for artists before, during, and after a performance or show when they are not engaged on stage. The origin of the term is often ascribed to such rooms historically being painted green.

Featuring:

Watercolors by Bill Baily, exhibiting artist from the Portland Art Museum

Fresco art by Agnes Field, founder and past president of the non-profit Astoria Visual Arts

Watermedia by Diana Nadal, fellow designer and frequently showing at Gusitina Gallery

Mixed media work by Jan Rimerman, curator for Lakewood Center Gallery and Rain Spark Gallery Director

Abstracts by Bill Shumway, founder of Pegasus Gallery and creator of the Vistas and Vineyards en plein art program

Other historical green room fun facts:

Richard Southern, in his studies of Medieval theatre in the round, states that in this period the performing area was referred to as the green. This central space, often grass-covered, was used by the actors, while the surrounding space and circular banks were occupied by the spectators. From this source then The Green has been a traditional actors’ term for the stage. The green room could thus be considered the transition room on the way to the green/stage. Technical staff at some theatres (such as the London Coliseum) still refer to the stage as the green.

Another explanation is that in the 18th-century theater makeup was a greenish-clay in color.  It took a long time to dry without cracking, so actors waited in the “green room” until it had fully cured.
