First look at Robin Montero’s Show Off Glam Masks.

Robin Montero, a former professional theater costume designer, knows how to work with fabric, says “when you catch the twinkle — that’s what it’s all about. It’s all about the sparkle.”

Fancy front, 100% cotton lining, Nosey-Bendy-Thingy ™, and handmade in Seaside, Oregon.

“Covering the community one face at a time.” RM

 

 

 

As we must continue to wear a face mask in public places around town, as public areas are very small, and as we need everyone’s help to keep each other safe we are happy to offer hand sewn, reusable, and lined face masks from Robin, Beth, Katie, Sai, Don, and Paul (six Seaside seamstresses and tailors). –FH&G
And, too, we will be serving up glitter, going forward.
Indeed, as we need every bit of sparkle in a year like the one we are experiencing.
Finding things for your home, family, and friends feeds your desires, sense of well-being, and doing good works.
“The real promise, and the hidden premise, during the global health crisis when many of us feel powerless, is creating a personal sanctuary.”

Indeed, we have wonderful holiday memories that make us smile at the remembering of them. So this year, we decided we would do a full embrace of of ALL THAT GLITTERS. These days, we can all use an extra dose of “feel good”! And, our designer, affiliated as an allied member, of A.S.I.D., American Society of Interior Designers, will be on hand to show you how to turn all this shimmering inspiration into high impact displays you will love in a few key spots in your own home.

Trending in 2020

“Think  impermanent and incomplete… two words for the mood we are going to see with decorating at home during the on-going global pandemic.  Design is focused on choosing objects with texture, by adding imperfect items, wrinkled natural fabrics, and by choosing handmade beauty. Colors are muted and raw as well, grey, perhaps, to match the mood of restraint and understated, as holiday celebrations will continue to be limited for the safety of family and friends during COVID.” D. Fairweather, gallerist/ designer

 

 

 

 

“Indeed, we have found wonderful glass ornaments that tugged at our heartstrings, sparking memories of our own glittering trees growing up.” DF

 

 

 

 

 

And, too, a note from our Governor:

“This holiday season, give the gift of Oregon! Our local businesses need support. One way Oregonians can help is to shop homegrown businesses that are run by our neighbors, family, and friends. Local retailers are prepared for you to shop safely.”

“Wild Beauty/ Ash” pen and ink with watercolor by emerging artist Vanessa K. Stokes 

“Get hopelessly lost in the art you make. Go down for days and come out on the other side with scrapes and bruises and a masterpiece.” – Ariel Bloomer

 

“Wild Beauty/ Wolf Spirit” watercolor mixed media by emerging artist Vanessa K. Stokes

 

Vanessa K. Stokes was introduced at Fairweather’s when she was fifteen, as an artist to watch. An emerging artist is someone who is in the early stage of their career, someone who has caught the eye of an art curator at a gallery.

 

“Dragonfly Paradise” sealed watercolor on board by Diana Nadal

Diana Nadal’s inspirations are captured in the quotation:

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” 
Henry David Thoreau

 “Feather Boa” water media by Pam Haunschild

 

In my paintings, I attempt to capture the essence of nature without copying it exactly.  I want to get past the obvious — to get to the essence of why many of us find being outside in nature soothing to our souls.  Conveying the power behind a bird’s gaze, the wonder of the vast number and variety of creatures that live in a tidepool, or the majesty of a salmon swimming upstream to spawn, I hope to capture something that will inspire viewers to connect more deeply with the natural world.” PH

 

 

“Mountain Cabin” oil impasto by Tedd Chilless

When computers took over my architectural practice. I experienced graphite withdrawal.  The transition from architecture to painting has been easy since the knowledge of form and composition are similar in both.” TC

 

Northwest artists Vanessa K. Stokes, Diana Nadal, Pam Haunschild, and Tedd Chilless created new original work for WILD BEAUTY, a Fairweather exhibition and art sale now through November 24th.

“Swan” graphite on yupo by Patricia Clark-Finley

With the first snows falling in the Pacific Northwest, it’s an appropriate time to turn our attention to wintering birds that can be found in our region.

Trumpeter Swans, Tundra Swans, and Snow Geese are three white birds that are of particular interest  at this time because their populations are growing and expanding to new locations within the Northwest.

The Snowy Owl is an irregular visitor to the North Coast, with sightings most likely from early November to mid-March. Abundance varies from year to year, with none reported some winters, over 100 reported in others, and at least a few most years.

Welcoming  encaustic artist Claudia Fuenzalida Johns.

“My art process reflects the family cultures I come from. At the foreground are issues of migration, movement, and constant change. My own nomadic wandering is both intellectual and also physical as my studio location and my reading list seems to change every few years. The birds which populate my images seem to echo this freedom of wandering. Most recently, the broad expanse of abstraction and light are inspired by the weather watching I do from my Long Beach Peninsula studio window in Washington.” Patricia Clark-Finley

 

The strength of WILD BEAUTY lies in the detailed and multivariate perspectives each artist brings showing us a different viewpoint.

They all use WILD BEAUTY as the theme in their work but they use different techniques and the way they see it is distinctively unique.

“Fairweather Art Walk is always good. It seems effortless and relaxed as only a talented designer could orchestrate. The space is lighted with precision to display over 100 artworks from a variety of genres and mediums. The artists are comfortable and welcomed as they mingle with visitors and one another. Greetings are pleasant and well-mannered. The evening  progresses with explanations from the artists about their work, and a word from the curator about current projects and events.  Gallerist Denise Fairweather works tirelessly along with loyal friends to set the stage for this genuine paradigm for art in the community.”  PCF

 

Patricia Clark-Finley studied at the UW, UC Berkeley, and completed a BFA at the San Francisco Art Institute. She spent time at the San Francisco Center for the Book, Carl Jung Institute, and Crown Point Press. Her work has been included in exhibitions juried by artists such as Viola Frey, Carlos Villa, and Christopher Brown. She was in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art Gallery. Her work has been included in galleries and invitational exhibitions.

Claudia Fuenzalida Johns

I paint because of a deeply rooted desire to create something that expresses deep emotion. A retrospection of loving, giving, risking, suffering. Painting allows me to relax, daydream, escape from the demands of family and work. It is my retreat, my sanctuary.

I am from a creative and emotionally charged family. Santiago, Chile is my birthplace. My family is made up of painters, dancers, opera singers. It was the natural thing to do, to dance and paint. I came to the USA in 1972 at the age of 9 when my mother, fearing the inevitable military takeover of the Augusto Pinochet regime, sent my brother, sister, and me to Seattle to live with a distant aunt. We were to be here six months, we never went back. We lived in a mystical, enigmatic household that alluded to a spiritual world not bound by religion. I attended North Carolina School of the Arts and majored in art & dance at the University of Washington. My work is featured in selected fine art galleries in the Pacific Northwest.

 

 

Images of birds and wings suggest hope, nurturing, protecting and spirituality. Along with a very bright color pallet, I use the texture of encaustic, a technique  of painting with  wax. I love the unpredictable element it adds to a work of art.”  CFJ

34” x 40” with frame

 

“ Birds on a Wire” encaustic by Claudia Fuenzalida Johns
11.5” x 25”

 

“Taking Flight” encaustic by Claudia Fuenzalida Johns
20.5” x 24”

 

 

In the midst of living, I paint about  life with its hope and its disappointments. I try to transcend reality by painting the imagined. And what I leave behind is my thoughts on living and our relationships to nature.”  CHJ

 Iridescent glass plate by Carolyn Meyers Lindberg

“The glass changes according to the angle from which it is viewed with a source of light. The iridescence is a deliberate effect achieved by the introduction of metallic substances into the glass.”

Handmade box with handmade paper by Christine Trexel

Christine Trexel  makes special boxes. “It is intensive hand work. And, I like the piece to have a function.”  From her days helping those with neurological deficits back to health as a former occupational therapist, Christine puts her heart and soul into her work.

And, now, to see the story of a tree requires stillness beside near beauty…

“Part art, part science, and all heart. We are blessed to have Neal Maine as a gifted interpreter.”

“Designed by Nature” black and white photograph by Neal Maine.

An ancient crab apple tree on the North Coast by Neal Maine

30″ x 22″ Framed, matted, and signed.

$395.

Available exclusively at Fairweather’s.

When Neal Maine looks at a tree, what he sees isn’t just a static object but a story—an adventure story, one full of unexpected plot twists and plenty of character development. Take this crab apple tree growing in NCLC’s Neacoxie Forest Habitat Reserve near Seaside, for example.

“It could be just a pretty picture,” he says, “but trees are products of their life histories. They have all these capacities for change and adaptation. So when you look at a tree like this, you’re saying, Thank you, wind, thank you, shade’—all these forces that made the tree like that.”

It’s not hard to see trees as stories, Neal says. “You just have to get tuned into in a different way of seeing than you might normally walk around with in a forest.”

“Wanderers” by Emily Miller

Wheel-thrown porcelain orbs with an open top and bottom. Interior coated with UV-reactive aqua blue glow-in-the-dark pigment.

by Emily Miller

$80- $60

“Wanderers” by gifted maker Emily Miller explores the unknown.

From the beginning of the pandemic the idea of a return to normal has been part of our consciousness all year. Change has already happened and is happening around us. I see no way to hold on to the past normal that caused our present circumstances. Growth is uncomfortable. Change is unpredictable. I am trying my best to be kind to myself and others as all our worlds continue to be thrown upside down. I know we can choose to do better than we have been.”  EM

Racing clouds and gusts of rain whip through the marshlands, blowing the leaves and seeds of autumn along the ground.

“The encaustic painting process uses layers of colored wax melted together with heat, creating a velvety, luminous surface. I love the medium because it pushes me to create emotional work centered on color, gesture and texture. Float mounted and framed in solid maple wood with a natural finish exterior and satin black interior.” EM

“Underfoot IV” by Emily Miller
Encaustic wax, ink, and found objects on board 10×10″ $400

“Mud, ice, stones, and leaves compressed into a layered fabric underfoot.”

“Golden Hour in the Estuary”  fine art photograph by Linda Fenton-Mendenhdall.

Framed in driftwood toned wood. First edition. Signed. $295.

I look at a scene in a non-traditional way. I look for something unusual about a sunset instead of just watching the sun go down on the horizon. For example, in Seaside one night, everyone was focused on the sunset and looking directly at it, so I looked the opposite direction and snapped a shot. I try to think outside the obvious.”  LFM

What is an estuary, you ask?

A partly enclosed coastal body of water in which river water is mixed with seawater is called an estuary.

Where is the Seaside estuary, you ask?

Neawanna Point is the land mass of the Necanicum Estuary in Seaside. It is covered in Sitka spruce, dunes, coastal prairie, and tidal marsh. 

“The sea level here has risen about 20 feet in the last 4500 years. Land is building at the same rate the sea is rising. The sand in the soil tells about the force and wave energy hitting the shore.” Geologist Tom Horning

“It’s all about the light. It’s the way the light is used in combination with shadows that makes a subject come to life.”

Emily Miller forwarded an artist statement: “a central part of my art practice deals with changes at the meeting point of the natural and human worlds. I see it as a border between light, the known and shadows, the unknown and I am fascinated with what lies beyond this dividing line.”
