Here is the quote I shared in my artist talk. It is from Concerning the Spiritual in Art by Wassily Kandinsky. –Gayle H. Seely

“Colour is a power which directly influences the soul. Colour is the keyboard, the eyes are the hammers, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand which plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul.”

 

 

Gayle H. Seely offers a personal one-to-one time with an art patron during the opening of COLOR IT FALL, an exhibition at Fairweather’s through Sept. 30th.

Featured in the display cabinet, found for Fairweather’s by artist Paul Brent, seed pearl mosaics by Gayle H. Seely,  vintage jewelry by Renee Hafeman, beaded  cuffs by Elaine Sawyer and leather purses by Luans Leathers.  In the background, is Art Walk hostess and artist Linda Trexler.

“Thank you for all your hard work presenting such a wonderful group of artists. I thoroughly enjoyed the Art Walk on Saturday and met some great folks; shoppers and fellow artists.”  Gayle H. Seely

What took one and 1/2 hours to install?

What took 5 men to move?

What has the number 88 to do with this piece?

 

And, the art patron who answered the question…is it the grand  piano?  The lovely lady in black.  She graciously called for a round of applause, after listening to the piano stories  (past, current and future musical lives).

Renee Hafeman, vintage jewelry artist

FINDINGS in my work is a collection of tools and other articles used by an artisan to make jewelry.

 

Q:  What is the difference Between “Art Nouveau” and “Art Deco”, you ask?

A: Art Nouveau: means “new art,” reigned from roughly 1880 until just before World War I. It features naturalistic but stylized forms, often combined with more geometric shapes, particularly arcs, parabolas, and semicircles (think of the Eiffel Tower). The movement brought in natural forms that had often been overlooked like insects, weeds, even mythical faeries, as evidenced by Lalique jewelry or Tiffany lamps.

Art Deco emerged after World War I. In fact, the deprivations of the Great War years gave way to a whole new opulence and extravagance that defined the Jazz Age and the Art Deco aesthetic. The movement, prevalent from the 1920s until roughly the start of World War II, took its name from the 1925 Exposition Internationales des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes, held in France and is characterized by streamlined and geometric shapes. It also utilized modern materials like chrome, stainless steel, and inlaid wood. If Art Deco dabbled with natural materials, they tended to be graphic or textural, like jagged fern leaves. As a result, Deco featured bold shapes like sunbursts and zigzags and broad curves.

Renee Hafeman offered an artist’s lecture during the opening reception of FINDINGS, an exhibition through August at Fairweather’s.

Note the difference?

Q: Who is Louis Vuitton, you ask?

A: Louis Vuitton is a fashion house and luxury retail company founded in 1854. The label’s LV monogram appears on most of its products, ranging from luxury trunks and leather goods, shoes, jewelry and accessories. Louis Vuitton is one of the world’s leading international fashion houses. For six consecutive years (2006–2012), Louis Vuitton was named the world’s most valuable luxury brand.

 

“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.”–Renee Hafeman

Petrified Wood is a fossil. It forms when plant material is buried by sediment. Groundwater flows through the sediment, replacing the original plant material by inorganic materials such as opal. The result is a fossil of the original woody material that often exhibits preserved details of the wood
Some specimens of petrified wood are such accurate preservations that people do not realize they are fossils until they pick them up and are shocked by their weight.

Oregon Picture Jasper is distinguished from other Chalcedony varieties such as Agate and Carnelian by its opacity. The appeal of Jasper is its interesting color patterns and formations. Jasper is an ancient gemstone, and is mentioned in the bible and other classical sources.

Fossilized Coral is a natural stone that is formed when ancient coral is gradually replaced with agate. The fossilized coral typically appears as small flower-like patterns in the stone.

Lapis is a blue rock composed of multiple minerals that has been used by people as a gemstone, sculpting material, and ornamental material for thousands of years.

Thundereggs are nodules or geodes that form when agate, chalcedony, or opal precipitate within the cavities of rhyolite, welded tuff, or perlite. When they are cut open, a treasure of colorful gem material and crystals is often revealed. The most popular rock in Oregon is said to be the thunderegg.

Tiger’s Eye forms when Quartz forms over existing Crocidolite, and eventually entirely replaces it. During the replacement process, the iron within the Crocidolite dissolves and stains the Quartz, thereby providing the golden yellow to brown color of the Tiger’s Eye.
