Oregon Myrtle Wood artisan bowl with azul filler embedded to accent the knot and grain by Mike Brown. 

Myrtlewood grows only along the Pacific Coast in Oregon, to San Diego and Klamath mountains and along the west slope of the Sierra Nevada. Wood artist Mike Brown  forages for Myrtlewood from trees downed by winter storms.

Surprisingly, these nests take a considerable amount of time to create. I first cut a lot of tiny strips of glass of varying lengths and colors, assembled them to look like twigs and fired them in my kiln.  Then the “twigs” were layered flat to resemble how a bird might have built its nest.  The assemblage is fired again to meld all the “twigs” together.  Then, finally, the entire nest is fired for the third time in a mold to create the bowl shape of the nest. It was a long process but fun to see the nests take shape!  In fused glass, you can’t ever get a completely round shape since fusing is done on a flat kiln shelf.  So, I spent some time trying different elements to take the place of nest eggs and decided on tumbled agate stones, or chalcedony.  I think they complement the glass nests. –-Carolyn Myers Lindberg

 

“Sandpipers” watercolor by Paul Brent

At Seaside estuary along the Necanciium River, flocks of many thousands of the Western sandpipers can be sighted swirling around over shallow water, landing to feed, before resuming migration. Their tightly coordinated escape flights are breathtaking to observe.

“Rendezvous” mixed media fresco painting on panel by Agnes Field 32″ x 32.5″

Q: What is mixed media fresco painting?

A: Three coats of plaster, sand, and marble dust are troweled onto a surface. A final smooth coat of plaster is added onto as much of the surface as can be painted in one session. The boundaries are confined carefully along contour lines, so that the edges of each successive section of fresh plastering are imperceptible. Agnes Field

And, too, brilliantly illuminating her talent,  Agnes Field created a YouTube video from her workspace to participate in the revised Astoria Open Studio Tours in 2021.  View her art on line this Saturday and Sunday, July 24 and 25/ 11-5:pm.

“Hummingbird on Blue I’ by Bob Kroll

Anna’s Hummingbirds are the only hummingbirds to stay in Oregon year-round, and they are a  common visitor to our garden and feeder. Here, a male Anna’s is perched on Arbor Vitae, showing  blue clouds. This composition was created using image processing software. Only 30 of these  artist-signed photographs will be made. This limited-edition photograph is printed at 12” x 18”  on archival UltraPro Satin paper with Ultrachrome® pigmented inks and is framed with acid-free  matte and backing, as well as UV-filtering ArtGlass, for maximum longevity.”  

“Hummingbird on Blue II” by Bob Kroll

Since I retired from veterinary specialty practice (as a board-certified veterinary neurologist), my wife Nancy and I spend a majority of our time on the North Oregon coast in Cannon Beach, contributing our time as volunteers to North Coast Land Conservancy. In addition, I serve on the board of Cannon Beach Gallery. Bob Kroll

“Caspian Terns can be seen along the Pacific Northwest coast when migrating during the Spring and Fall.  Here,  silhouetted against the colorful sky about 15 minutes after sunset over the blue Pacific.”  BK

“Tern into Dusk II” by Bob Kroll

“The  blur of the background was created by intentionally moving the camera horizontally during a long exposure  (¼ second). Images of the Terns were taken at a separate time and layered over the background, using  image processing software, to create this composition. Each panel is printed at 12” x 18” on archival Art  White premium matte paper with Ultrachrome® pigmented inks and is framed with acid-free mat and  backing under UV-filtering ArtGlassfor maximum longevity.”  Bob Kroll

“Terns into Dusk I, II, and II” by Bob Kroll

The three separate images are available as framed or signed prints with mats to display beautifully as a triptych.

Photography is a means of self-expression and creativity, and it gives me joy in 4 different ways.  First, I find it joyful being outdoors in nature, envisioning a unique composition, and creating a photo that will display that vision.  Second, there is joy once the photo is “developed” in seeing that vision realized.  Third, it brings me joy to share images with others and know that the work is appreciated.  And fourth, there is joy in continuing to learn and improve as an artist. 

Bob Kroll spoke about his INTO THE BLUE art photography at Fairweather’s on June 5

“Goldfinch and Sage” watercolor on wood panel by Mary Burgess

My paintings are about joyful experiences. As a long-time bird watcher, hiker, and nature enthusiast, I love the challenge of capturing the essence of each little creature and enjoy painting each as a portrait.”  MB

Mary Burgess is a watercolor artist living and working in Lake Oswego, Oregon. After teaching High School Art classes for 15 years, she began her second career as a professional watercolor artist and painting instructor

“Once a teacher, always an educator.  Mary Burgess enjoys the best of all worlds because she is using her skills to educate others about the arts and develops artwork to show what she is passionate about.”-– FH&G

“Redknot and Oceans” watercolor on panel by Mary Burgess

Red Knots nest above the Arctic Circle and winter near the tip of South America. So they migrate about 16,000 miles round trip each year. They can live more than 15 years, which means red knots travel to the moon and back several times on their cumulative migration flights.

When it’s winter here in the northern hemisphere, it’s summer in the southern — a fact that helps explain how the red knot’s vast migration evolved.

This is one of the most spectacular migrations available in bird life along the Pacific Ocean/ Western region migration and along the Atlantic Ocean/ Eastern region migration. 

Mary Burgess recommends reading the book “RISING”…

“RISING” by Elizabeth Rushing
Review: The short answer is: a writer’s sensibility. Rush, who teaches creative nonfiction at Brown University, has chosen to examine climate change through the lens of American places and people devastated by rising seas and higher temperatures. … An empathetic writer and observer, Rush hints that she is learning alongside you. Hailed as “deeply felt” (New York Times), “a revelation” (Pacific Standard), and “the book on climate change and sea levels that was missing” (Chicago Tribune), Rising is both a highly original work of lyric reportage

ON YOUR MARKS, an exhibition, featuring NW artists Gayle H. Seely, Diane Copenhaver, Mary Burges, and Lee Munsell. Debuting the pastel art of Susan Mitchell. 

“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”. 

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

“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

Seely has been represented by the Fairweather Gallery since 2015.

Seely and her husband live in Seaside where she also has a studio. When she isn’t working, she enjoys walking and spending time with her beautiful dog.

“I love seeing people become so involved in my boxes,” Gayle H. Seely. The artist’s unique creations will be on display at Fairweather House and Gallery’s Art Walk kick off at the ON YOUR MARKS opening reception on Saturday, May 1 from 5 to 7 p.m. Her painting methods combined with fresh, modern energy and emotions create intricate colorful boxes, bound to delight.

Seely, an Oregon native, moved to the North Coast from Trinidad in 1984. She became familiar with the area after her parents, Carol and Al Vernon, moved to Gearhart in 1980.

After graduating from the University of Oregon with a degree in fine art, she moved to San Francisco to take a job in an architectural design firm.

To offset the artistic constrictions of her day job, she enrolled at Humboldt State College as a post baccalaureate unclassified, which meant she could take any art class she liked.

“There was a senior year seminar where I was thrown in with the messy artists, and I realized I wanted to feel that,” Seely said.

She decided to pay off her school loan and her and car loan and eventually quit her job in San Francisco to move to Trinidad to make art. To support herself, she took a job waiting tables. 

“When I wasn’t working, I drew. I was drawn to seascapes,” Seely said. “I’ve always loved the beach.”

Not long after, Seely had an epiphany she wanted to focus exclusively on boxes, a direction she’s taken for several years.

“The boxes are surprisingly durable,” Seely said. All the same, she said people collect them and regard them as talismans.

Excerpts from Seaside Signal newspaper

 

END NOTE:

“My dog is a trained pheasant hunter,” Seely says.

It’s easy to imagine one day, perhaps, in May, during the artist talk at the Seaside First Saturday Art Walk… Gayle will describe how feathers found their way into her enchanting and imaginative work…

This Orchid Collection is inspired by attending the Garden Island Orchid Society Spring Fantasy Show on the island of Kauai in Hawaii. Strolling through the colorful display of orchid plants was like traveling into a fragrant dream full of colors and shapes.  Some of the orchids were as tiny as a thumbnail while others had flowers as large as grapefruit.  I have attempted to recreate the orchid essence.” JR


“Part of the abstract composition is created by using powdered charcoal, light molding paste, and transparent fluid acrylic paint. To create the initial black and white underpainting, organic forms are used as stencils.  In this collection, you may see cedar boughs, sword ferns, or even the outlines of garden rake tines.  After the powdered charcoal is sealed onto the paper as many as 16 to 22 layers of transparent fluid acrylic paint are applied.
JR

“The most difficult part of the process is waiting for each layer to dry between each application of color and/or texture.  This building up of layers gives the impression that there is something more beyond the visible veneer.  The pieces transform and reveal new imagery in the various lights during the progression of the day.  By changing your observation angle you may see shapes and currents that were not viewed previously.” JR

“Grace helps us do more than we can on our own. Nature brings truths that we could never discover without the help of grace.”
