Tanya Gardner, glass pouring jewelry artist

 

Pouring paint into glass is the artist’s favorite medium because of the bright color mixing.  The Northwest artist creates colorful   drippings, reminiscence of ocean waves and skies, to make one-of-a-kind  personal jewelry.

 

  “I hope you enjoy my art, as much as I enjoyed creating it.” –Tanya

 

 

For more than eleven years, Fairweather House and Gallery has featured many incredibly gifted artists that create art in a wide range of traditions and innovative techniques.

 

“We are absolutely thrilled to be showcasing the lovely wearable art created Tanya Gardner.”

 

 

And, so it goes forward, regional artists referring fellow artists to the gallery.

Artists are selected on the basis of originality, craftsmanship, and the creative exploration materials.

Two new works of art by Marga!

“My art training comes from watching and experimenting and then doing it all over again, exposing a little more of me, Marga, with every attempt.

With each coat of paint, whether it’s watercolors, gouache, acrylics and oil comes depth and motion…it’s exciting and satisfying to see my work evolve from one layer to the next. I love using odd tools to paint with….for instance, the main images on my mini whimsy collection, were painted with a toothpick (I couldn’t find a small enough pallet knife).” –Marga

A grace note received by a fellow Fairweather artist:

“Marga, I love your work…very touching and it has a dreamy quality. Wonderful!” –Melissa Jander

“There is a Way” original oil by Lee Munsell. Location:  Ruby Beach, Olympic Peninsula, WA

 

Lee Munsell is a Luminist, as he explores a range of naturalistic subject matter with a sensitive eye for varying degrees of luminosity. He takes on the more difficult subjects of water, its weight, and its undertow in the tidal current.

The art critic William Havlicek wrote: ”Munsell uses nuances of light to create transcendent evocations. At a time when excess is a great temptation for an artist, it is refreshing to find an individual like Munsell who embraces time-honored tradition then attempts the difficult. He may approach a silent mountain terrain where clouds and light are as much the subjects of the work as are the peaks, rivers and strong pines. Munsell explores the profundity of water and light, presenting a shimmering work on rocks, or a glow of luminosity in backlit waves. Taking effects of light is his way of expressing a belief in a supernatural origin for the natural universe.”

For over eleven years, the gallery has presented original art by  recognized and emerging regional artists.

Available exclusively at Fairweather House and Gallery.

 

 

 

 

“Here are the pictures  for my work in progress using the myrtlewood I harvested.” –Mike Brown

He has won multiple Best of Awards at the Annual Artistry in Wood Juried show. He also enjoys turning bowls and vases on his lathe.

Available exclusively at Fairweather House and Gallery.

Artists represent the heartbeat of the Fairweather Gallery.  What we strive to put out in the arts community is  the artist’s conversations.  We have been fortunate to experience the sharing and giving of many, many creative minds  for over 11 years.

 

So, for us,  in 2018, the opportunity to continue to present an arts platform forward  is all about shining a bright light on the reminder that we are all connected… artists, patrons and community.

Reneé Hafeman and her fabulous  jewelry. 

“Smile like I have just given you the checkbook.” –Mike Hafeman

Just in a fabulous Marco Fabroso  exclusive design by Reneé Hafeman :

Fraboso Argento’ has been making Silver Jewelry Since 1985 Where Marco Fraboso’s father, Paolo Fraboso, passed on his passion to his Son for Silver, also serving as his expert guide and mentor. Marco Fraboso officially joined the family firm when he was 20 years old and has since expanded his knowledge handed down to him by his father which has proved crucial as it forms the foundations of Marco’s creative output today.

About Reneé Hafeman jewelry designer:

 

“Growing up, my grandmother would pull out her jewelry box, take each piece out one-by-one and explain in detail what it was, where it came from and why it was so special to her. This developed my love of antique and vintage jewelry. I started to think of how many treasured pieces are sitting in drawers and jewelry boxes, many handed down, some outdated, some broken and others, just put away because they didn’t match anything you wore. I decided enough of that! Let’s dig out those pieces and give them new life. As I design, I pray over my work that whoever wears this piece, may be blessed in some way. I thank God for blessing me with this creativity and passion.”–Reneé Hafeman

Volez Voguez Voyagez – Assouline book $50

 

Book Review:

Since the company’s inception by its namesake founder more than 150 years ago and the creation of its universally recognized monogram in 1896, Louis Vuitton has expanded its borders to encompass everything from perfumes to handbags to ready-to-wear. But Louis Vuitton Malletier has always been rooted in the timeless spirit of travel. Based on the exhibition curated by Olivier Saillard at Paris’s Grand Palais, this album was created to accompany the show on its travels around the world, beginning in Japan in spring 2016. Louis Vuitton’s Volez, Voguez, Voyagez gives readers an understanding of the history and vision of the brand whose innovation made traveling effortless as well as fashionable. From the flat trunk perfected by Louis Vuitton himself to the present direction of Nicolas Ghesquière, a piece of Vuitton luggage has always been the quintessential tool in the jet-set traveler’s arsenal. For almost two centuries, practicality and whimsy have famously fused to influence the brand’s every endeavor. The pages of Volez, Voguez, Voyagez are an expedition within themselves, reflecting the wanderlust that Louis Vuitton inspires every day.

 

And, too, a personal favorite! A blue Chanel pendant necklace must have!

SEEK, an art exhibition, through December

Opening reception images

“As the hectic holiday season approaches, we seek beauty, in its solitude and silence, as well as seek time with family and friends.”

 

SEEK, Fairweather’s opening reception December art exhibition featured Duane Bolster, master harp builder and his harp petting zoo. For nearly 50 years, he worked in operating rooms and Intensive Care Units. He witnessed the wonderful healing and soothing effects that harp music had on the children he cared for, and on their parents. He won The Hero award from CCA “For Creating a Magnificent Harp for the Music Program”.

 

Featured December artist Renee Rowe offered an artist’s talk during the opening reception of SEEK. The artist, an Oregonian, spoke about being inspired by the beauty of nature.  She produces abstract art by following her heart. For the artist, celebrating art and life are inseparable.
