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.

COLOR IT FALL

Artist Lecture 

 

We see color thanks to the cones in our eyes. (The rods are for night vision.) Humans are trichromats, that is, we see red, green, and blue. . . and mixtures of all these.

Many birds and fish, on the other hand, are tetrochromats and see 4 colors including ultraviolet colors invisible to us. A small percentage of women, some 2% – 3%, are tetrachromats and see at least one additional ultraviolet color.

What is your favorite color?

Ask a few people around the room. Chances are, between 50 – 60% will favor blue.

What can color do? It can . . .
* attract attention. People see color before they see anything else.
* hold attention. People pay attention to black and white for about ½ second or less. They pay attention to color for 2 – 3 seconds.
* Color has power. Consider the colors of STOP, GO and CAUTION.
*Color increases memory.

*Color images are processed before black and white images, so they are remembered better.
*Color informs better than black and white.

Research shows color improves readership by 40%, learning by 55 – 78%, and comprehension by 73%.
*Colors have personality and meaning and personalities vary with one’s culture.
*Color combined with shape sends special messages.
*Color attracts attention to brands better than words. What colors are signs? What is on the background of a sign?
*The color of your clothing tells a lot about you, your profession, and your status.
*Color transmits messages without ever using a word.

Aren’t artists lucky?  We have free use of color which can to do and say so many different things! All we have to do is to learn to make use of the many meanings of color as we create our treasures. —Jo Pomeroy- Crockett, Ph.D, writer and artist.

“I’m drawn to the vibrant colors of our sunsets and forests to the contrasts of coastal storms.”

“The ever-changing weather and lighting are a constant inspiration.”

 

Linda Fenton-Mendenhall

“As a lifelong resident of Clatsop County, I still discover new views and perspectives that I love to share through my images.”

“I’m driven to seek out those moments that may be fleeting, so that they can be enjoyed by others.”

 

The biggest reward is hearing how one of my images sparked a memory or gave the viewer a true sense of “being there”.
