“Fairweather House and Gallery has become one of the historic Gilbert District’s sought after destinations offering an ever-changing amazing visual experience.”  –Seaside Signal/ 2008

 

 

 

“Stroll across the arched Broadway Bridge and you’ll see the historic Gilbert Block Building, est. 1914. The upscale Fairweather House and  Gallery, at 612 Broadway Street,  is a must-visit for anyone who is serious about Northwest artists.”  –Seaside Visitor’s Bureau/ 2021

One-of-a-kind handmade blue paper triangle box by Christine Trexel.

Triangle bow with four handmade boxes within accented with seed pearls pulls by NW paper artist Christine Trexel.

Indeed, blue signifies life-giving air and often signifies hope and courage.

“Spring 2021” encaustic composition art by Peg Wells.

 Wells, a retired nurse, remains consistent with hopeful art emerging from this time of change.

“We’ve all gone inside to reflect and heal, but after this period of isolation, there was always time to create comforting and healing art. Everyone is uneasy, all over the globe, but art can help us process the fear. Art also has the power to transform. Artists let their creativity flow, as a tool for understanding and courage.”

 

 

Aquamarine and turquoise gemstone necklace by jewelry designer Mary Truhler.

 

“Some people think that the blue colors of the gemstones symbolize the sky and sea, and that this means truth, sincerity and inspiration.”

“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”
~ Emily Dickinson

 

And, too, just in! 
New hardcover cookbooks with chef-inspired recipes combined with inspiring plated photographs and Seattle chocolatier Fran’s famous caramels. In addition, Fairweather’s offers a fine selection of hardcover design, travel, and garden books.

“Now, my hunger to cook for those I love has translated into self care. Without friends over the past year, I have cooked for myself; and I realize now that my life has been much the richer for it. When at times it has felt like the world is crumbling around me, a proper meal is something I look forward to, taking the time to lay the table prettily, and eating by soft candlelight. My best distraction lately has been ending the day with a sweet morsel of fine chocolate.

As this global pandemic lifts and, little by little, the world opens up, without doubt what I look forward to most is sitting once again round a table in the company of those I love and eating together. But for now I’m plotting tonight’s dinner, leafing through cookbooks looking for food I long to eat; and then taking the time to cook it just for me. There is comfort— a lot of love—in that, too.” — S. McAlpine

The pandemic year, although stressful, has given us a lot of  time to think—about our NW artists, and specifically, the role that the gallery can have on our patrons. Indeed, many artists have produced more new work than ever before.  We are grateful for their inspirations and have been fortunate to have had the time to create new vibrant displays to complement the artwork and to highlight the month of February, always and forever, known as the season of Love.

French latch clip, rhinestone bauble, and faceted crystal earrings by Michelle Shigemasa.

 

 

Shepherd hook and mother of pearl oval earrings by Michelle Shigemasa.

 

Fused glass, crystals, seed pearls and hammered hook earrings by Michelle Shigemasa.

 

Handmade lampwork, onyx, seed pearls and silver hook earrings by Michelle Shigemasa.

 

“Lampworking is a glass technique in which a torch lamp is used to melt glass. The glasswork beads are formed by blowing and shaping with hand movements. Selecting beads, faceted crystals, and silver is a skilled undertaking for a  jewelry artist.  Knowledge of which colors work well together and good hand coordination are important.”  FH&G

 

Just in for 2021.

Michelle’s  black and white lampwork three dimensional earrings range from $35 to $45.

 

Miniature ou pettie, oh-so-pretty,  oh-so-petite, and oh là là bauble earrings at $25 from Michelle Shigemasa.

 

“Artists love using the two shades together when designing because they contrast with one another so well. Black is a bold color, which can embody a feeling of strength. White embodies purity or light. We continue to associate the two colors with good taste.”  FH&G

 

My motivational byline is design work offering artful, sassy, and classy jewelry pieces with color intertwined. I am curious about a variety of techniques to utilize in creating ageless composition.

Works of jewelry art that depict one’s zest for life grab my attention. I enjoy taking a vision and combining it with the inventive, the distinctive, and the unique into a wearable reality. I also work with dichroic, furnace, and molded glass.

Before the pandemic, my catalog of work was part of a successful fundraiser in Hillsboro, Oregon as well as shown in home gatherings, jewelry parties, and salons.   —Michelle Shigemasa.

 

 

 

 

My first muse took form as a tribute to my grandmother’s dear friend, Emma Ward. She was so loved we called her Aunt Emmy. Even as a five-year-old I knew she was a fashion icon, adorned in stylish hats, trendsetting gloves, stunning brooches, and standout ensembles of earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. She was the gilded lily of her day.reminiscent of those which she dazzled
my five-year-old self. Aunt Emmy’s positive feelings were there for me to see whenever she walked into a room.

 

 

Fifteen years ago I crafted my inaugural piece, a necklace composed of gemstones, beads, findings, and a lifetime of collected charms. Since then, I have moved on to incorporate natural materials, fused and lamp work glass, and beads in making jewelry pieces reminiscent of those which Aunt Emmy dazzled my five-year-old self.  —Michelle Shigemasa.

 

“Iʻm honored to call this amazing, creative, loving woman, Michelle Shigemasa, as my friend and after decades of nurturing the next generation as one of the most amazing teachers Iʻve ever known…you go, girl.” –S. Ward

 

 

And, too, complimentary signature gift wrapping just for Michelle’s jewelry through February at Fairweather’s!
