“A Pile of Pelicans” by Neal Maine/ PaicificLight Images. Proceeds in support of NCLC.

White pelicans photographed in Youngs Bay, Oregon, rarely spotted in the Pacific Northwest. White Pelicans forage by swimming on surface, dipping bill into water and scooping up fish in pouch.

 

 

Q: Where in the world is Youngs Bay, you ask?

A: Youngs Bay, or Youngs River Bay, is located in the northwestern corner of the U.S. state of Oregon. The Youngs River meets the Columbia River at this point, which is situated between Astoria and Warrenton.

 

White pelican normal migration:  Northern breeding populations migrate to southern California, the Gulf States, Mexico, and Central America. Yet, too, white pelicans were spotted along the North coast, recently! In fact, have been banded in the Columbia River.

Veith.

 

“Award-winning artist Melissa Jander brings together the elements of color, composition and expressive brushwork to create beautiful paintings of everyday life. She enjoys orchestrating these elements in such a way that invites the viewer to fill in the rest of the story, perhaps stir a memory, a feeling, or the imagination. Melissa’s newest paintings contribute her own “Outside Interests” of gardening, books, beautiful northwest views, and collecting sentimental objects.”
Welcoming new artists:  oil painter Vicky Combs-Snider, glass artist Christine Downs and encaustic artist Elina Zebergs to the gallery.

Melissa’s beautiful paintings feature flowers grown on her Camano Island garden.  She has a unique synthesis of Post-Impressionist style art seen in the work of Van Gogh, Cezanne and Bonnard. Originating in France, the Post-Impressionist movement sought to expand the horizons of Impressionism, further exploring distortion of form and richness of color. Melissa harnesses this freedom of expression in the energetic art she creates.”

Q: Where in in the world is Camano Island, you ask?

A: Camano Island is a large island in the Puget Sound, located in Island County, Washington, between Whidbey Island and the mainland.

 

 

“If you have a yearning to experience the beautiful Oregon Coast in the summertime, visit Seaside. The art galleries of Seaside, all within walking distance, offer a delightful Art Walk on the first Saturday of each month. The galleries are located in the historic Gilbert District and there are several wonderful restaurants and cafes for your enjoyment.”  Melissa Jander

 

 

And, too a shout out for the arts.

 

 Melissa Jander will have an exhibition on September 12-October 12 at the Mary Williams Fine Arts in Boulder, CO.  It is the Women Artist of the West 49th Annual Show “Mountain Aire.”

“It’s a huge honor to be selected among this group of talented artists.” Melissa Jander

“White tailed deer” oil by Vicky Combs-Snider

“I was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I was very blessed growing up and living in seven different states. After graduating in Kansas City, Missouri, I went on to college and majored in Art. In Kansas City, I showed in several art exhibits and taught oil painting for five years. After the passing of my mother, who was also a well-known artist in Arkansas, I lost my passion for painting.

I moved to Oregon, eleven years ago and took a job in sales, which allowed me to travel the back roads of Oregon, Washington, Utah, and Idaho. Through work and pleasure, I have been blessed to travel throughout all 50 states. Our country is a beautiful canvas, full of vibrant colors and majestic subject matter.

Since retiring to the Oregon coast and with the encouragement of my husband, am painting again.  The passion I once had, painting with my mother, has returned.” Vicky Combs-Snider.

 

“Coastal Elk”, oil on canvas, by Vicky Combs-Snider

 

“With all the wildlife, mountains, and the ocean, I have an unlimited list to paint from.”

 

“Eagles”, oil on canvas, by Vicky Combs-Snider.

“I love to push the limits of oil.”

“Determination”  original watercolor by Tamara Watanabe

Emerging portraiture artist statement:

“I am not a professional artist, nor do I have an art degree, however, art is an integral part of my life. As a child, reared on a small farm, in the peace and tranquility of the Puyallup valley, I grew to love the arts. Right next door, my grandmother’s art studio buzzed with activity; a place where my first paintings and drawings sprang to life.

As I pursued my formal education, I could not help but add art classes into my schedule. From drawing, to painting, photography and watercolor, it was always there. I took classes for a while from a local artist, Lou Innocenti, in the 90’s. In 2004, I sold an oil painting and was commissioned to paint a larger version of the work. I moved to Hawaii, where I continued to experiment with oils and attended the University of Hawaii as Tropical Plant and Soil Science Major. Right now, though, I am using my love for art and learning and drawing faces to help promote an organization known as faces4hope.” Tamara Watanabe

 

“Exuberance” original watercolor by Tamara Watanabe

“The founders of faces4hope, Holly and Jack Stagge, tell a marvelous story of how these beautiful, brown faces on the Maasailand in Tanzania, Africa captured their hearts. Now, they live to educate young girls who would not otherwise have that chance. The portraits are faces of two young Maasai girls in Tanzania, who have been touched by the love and dedication of Holly and Jack. If I can help spread the word of a severely great need and open up the hearts of others, then my artwork has changed someone’s life near and, hopefully far, and served a greater purpose. I hope you enjoy these beautiful faces. May they light a spark in your heart.” Tamara Watanabe

 

 

On view through May 29.

The art selected is a debut exhibition contemplating character in portrait drawings and oil sketches displaying the relationship between artist and sitter as its central subject,” D. Fairweather, gallerist.

 

 “Portraiture” featuring regional artists Leah Kohlenberg, Susan Romersa, Patricia Clark-Finley, Rebecca Gore, Carolynn Wagler, Carolyn Macpherson, Mike Mason and Russell J. Young.

Welcoming artists Karen Doyle, Lisa Sofia Robinson and Shelby Silver.

Introducing emerging artists Tamara Watanabe and Vanessa Stokes.

“Love Tamara Watanbe’s work. She catches the essence of these beautiful young Maasai girls, who, without the work of organizations like Faces4Hope, would be sold into marriage soon. Once married, it would be their responsibility to build the home they would live in and begin having and supporting children. Thank you, Tamara, for these works of love. And thank you, Leah Brooks, for giving yourself over to save these girls.” Boni Webster

Q: How are emerging artists selected by the gallery, you ask?

A: Emerging artists are selected through an audition process and receive gallery mentoring.  Fairweather House and Gallery has championed more than twelve emerging artists. Emerging artists  have taken the risks, embraced the challenges and have continued to be rigorous, disciplined and dedicated in their approach to creation and production.
