Sharing a few August artist grace notes:

 

Artists were prepared for the emotional challenges that come with a predominantly remote means for creating work during COVID-19.

“One unforeseen emotional benefit of the pandemic has been the recognition of an innate need for authenticity. The trust we place in each other at these vulnerable moments gives us a better sense of empathy.”  A. Schneider/ August, 2020

 

“Thank you for the article on following your passion. It was a wonderful read. I agree, more than ever, supporting artists and small businesses are  important. I know you are continuing to have support from visitors and your community.  I’m nearly finished with a piece that works well with your future shows. Coming soon. Best regards. –Diane Copenhaver

 

“Primordial Bay” abstract by Martha Lee

30″ x 30″

Thank you for your lovely note about my painting “Primordial Bay.” It was so uplifting. I have read it over at least 25 times and will read it every day. How thoughtful of you to reach out to me. I do hope that the planning for ongoing exhibitions is going well.  I  thank you that my paintings will be continued to be welcome in your elegant gallery. I treasure our connection to the arts.”   –Martha  Lee

“With this COVID disrupting routines plus having to stay home we haven’t been to Seaside this year! I thought I would check in to see how things are going at the gallery and if there is anything I need to do in regards to my artwork. I am developing another body of art that is mixed media artwork that will be using all of my artistic skills (e.g.,drawing, painting, sculpting, weaving) to produce 2-D and 3-D images of rock formations. My goal is to feature Oregon’s rock formations from ocean to desert, to the mountains.

As I develop pieces that might be of interest to you I’ll keep you posted. Hoping you’re having a good recovery from the COVID shutdown and latest restrictions. You have such a nice gallery I’d like to see it continue thriving! We’ll be heading to Seaside soon.”  Martha Denham

 

 

 

Fairweather Gallery has been the place for cultural art gatherings, art talks, music events, art education, artist socializing,; indeed, it is a perfect event space to throw that perfect party. First and foremost,  however, it is an art gallery.

Throughout the years, many people have visited the gallery, locals and people from out of town, to enjoy the beautiful surroundings, art, music, wine tastings, listen to an inspiring artist talk, and, oftentimes, to offer a comforting ear about a good works event (Arctic Light/ Beaver Tales/ Ode to the Tides).

And, so, it goes forward, while maintaining balance during a pandemic within the arts community, Fairweather continues to develop a list of best practices following approved guidelines. The Gallery has taken into account a continuing shift moving on …with more steps forward with each passing month in offering after-hours arts events. What is on hold, until there is a containment of the virus is the LIVE music and wine tastings,  thereby keeping everyone safe and healthy.

What remains, and, truly, what is most important, is the art, artists, uplifting stories, and sense of community while observing social distancing practices.

“In my travels, I find the Oregon Coast as one of my most favorite places to visit.  The coastal veranda offers spectacular vistas that are ever changing. I never tire of the incredible expansive beauty the Oregon Coast offers”.  CF

 

 

 

 

Artist grace note received.
“It was a pleasure visiting with you recently.  Your gallery, displayed with a plethora of mediums, was a visual delight. I am very excited to be a part of the family of artists in your gallery.”  Colette Fallon
And, too, a pair of new grace notes received…

“I’ve been enjoying all of your info about your gallery! Fun to see everything! One of these days I’ll pop in, mask and all! Hope you have a lovely reopening.” Joan S.

“I know you will be able to manage all the changes for the gallery you are implementing.  It is hard for everyone at this time.  Please take it slow and steady until summer is in full swing.  I know you will keep everyone stay safe.”  Kathy B.
“Enclosed is the ” Clear Daze” CD. The music was written by Jerry Paul, the guitar player and myself.  It’s an eclectic group of compositions with jazz influences.  The cover has a photo of Tillamook Head  in Seaside.  Jerry is a photographer, as well. He did that photo of me that I sent you.  Thank you for selecting the CD as a music choice in your gallery.”  Colette Fallon
Clear Daze CD review:
“A delicate sound for a perplexed world. An instrumental jazz ensemble that blends a broad spectrum of original sounds with a captivating mix of styles and dynamics.  In a “dazed” world of conflict and confusion, the music gives a “clear” sense of calm and certainty.”

It is welcome news that Fairweather House and Gallery is able to announce that it is entering Phase Two of Oregon’s reopening plan!

Beginning June 6th restrictions imposed statewide last March to help fight the coronavirus pandemic will be relaxed. 

 

 

Fairweather House and Gallery thanks you for your patience as we continue navigate the ever-changing requirements.
The more we work together, the faster our community will recover from this crisis.
Fairweather House and Gallery
612 Broadway
Seaside, Oregon
Open Mon, Thu, Fri, and Sat 11- 4:pm

 Sun 12-3:pm

And, so, throughout Oregon’s Phase 2 plan our hours will remain somewhat limited until there is a convincing containment of the coronavirus.

Closed Tue and Wed until July 2020.

Please read through the  information below as it will help you understand how best to visit us and what your experience will be like during Phase Two of Re-opening.

We will utilize the following ways to ensure social distancing and to reduce the possibility of infection for you, our staff and our community:

  • Gallery areas will be marked  with 6′ social distancing stickers, which will help guide safe distances between guests
  • A hand sanitizing station will be available at the front entrance.
  • The number of guests in the gallery will be limited to 6 at one time.
  • A pair of complimentary disposable gloves will be available for your convenience.
  • Staying safe, be advised that our staff will be wearing protective masks.

All proven practices aimed at keeping everyone healthy.

We are keeping close track of key COVID-19 indicators in our area and will be ready to make any adjustment needed to keep safe and well.

The last thing we want is to see a spike in the number of cases.

Kate Brown, Oregon Governor:

 

“Phase 2 will likely be a long-lasting step of Oregon’s reopening plan.

 

Health officials say that counties won’t see Phase 3 until at least September — and possibly further — until a reliable treatment or vaccine is available. 

For now, face coverings, regular hand washing and social distancing will be a part of daily life through the summer.” 

 

Grace note received

Dearest Fairweather friends,

I look forward to your blog posts and I admire how well you support and promote your town and your artists. You are the soul of integrity and graciousness. I think of you often, especially now and hope my offer will be a tiny way of thanking you for the many years I have had my Celtic jewelry at the Fairweather gallery.

There are pieces of my jewelry at the gallery. I would be pleased if you could take the proceeds and make a donation to a cause you care about in your community.  In the scheme of things I’d feel better knowing that in a tiny way I can thank you for the many years we have done business together and for your appreciation of your artists, customers and staff.

I wish you the very best in all aspects of your life, please stay safe and keep well.

With immense gratitude,

Most sincerely,

Mary Hurst

 

 

And, so it goes forward.

Mary Hurst’s letter of gratitude and encouragement moves into a ‘Doing Good Works’ plan to help others during a difficult time.

“One of my favorite places to go when visiting Seaside, Oregon is Fairweather House & Gallery. Owner Denise Fairweather is a celebrated Interior Designer and also a Master Gardener. Her gallery is a showcase of her fresh and contemporary style and is a beautiful sanctuary of art, furniture and home accessories…so inspiring!

“Buoy Composition” by Paul Brent, oil on canvas, 24 x 36/ with frame 29 x 41

Location: Seaside, Oregon with Tillamook Head in the background

 

Q: What are buoys, you ask?

A:  Generally associated with fishing and boating activities (recreational or commercial), a buoy floats at the surface and is moored to the bottom. Brightly colored buoys are used for the marking of crab pot locations so the person fishing for crabs can find their traps. Crab pot buoys come in various sizes, shapes, and colors.

Oregon has over 360 miles of coastline — that’s a big sandbox for crabbing… Crabbing is available at the 12th Street Bridge in downtown Seaside…

Featured floral art work includes botanical, realism, abstraction, and surrealism.

Research has found that being around flowers increases the level of compassion that they feel for others and are more willing to extend a helping hand to those in need.

Stunning spring 2020 magnolia study by Dorota Haber-Lehigh

Ethnobotany and native plant Oregon Coast artist

Watercolor palette for magnolia artwork. Dorota Haber-Lehigh

“Drawing magnolia branch! What a beautiful tree. Trying to find some beauty amidst the chaos of life.”  DHL

 

Seaside artist Dorota Haber-Lehigh depicts Pacific Northwest native plants, portraying their sculptural beauty and brings attention to importance of ecological diversity of nature to emphasize natures and human fragility.

She is interested in portraying individual plants with their sculptural and ephemeral beauty. Her passion is to bring attention to importance of ecological diversity of nature and emphasize nature’s and human fragility. She is interested in the healing power of plants and nature and enjoys drawing plants that have medicinal properties. She has authored two ethnobotanical coloring books: “ABC of Native Plants of the Coastal PNW” and “Native Berries of the Coastal PNW.”

“Oregon Grape beginning of a composition. I will keep adding elements throughout the year. Love the resilience of the plant.” DHL

Indeed, reminds ourselves of our own resilience.  This will be a lovely study…

A story on resilience:

To become more resilient, fill your mind with thoughts of stories of resilience. Read stories or biographies of tough people who have overcome hardships. Watch movies that have a theme of courage. Associate with courageous and disciplined people. Ask your courageous friends to share some interesting stories. Humor eases tension and anxiety; pay attention to the things that make you laugh and smile. Keep in mind that your objective is to become a more resilient person – not to escape reality.  Shared by  Susan Peterson, fellow Seasider and cultural arts supporter.  (Boost of Positivity for Professionals).

 

“The beach, creeks, rivers, parks and waysides are closed from the north end of Seaside to the south end, in support of the governor’s Stay Home Save Lives order.  Our local communities near each area — many of them small– need our support and understanding.” –Oregon Parks and Recreation Department

 

The closure halts all beach activities, including clamming, surfing, swimming and other activities. “Where the beaches and parks are closed, they are indeed closed for all uses. Closed means closed. Full stop.” Seaside Chief Dave Ham stated that officers are being asked repeatedly if the beach is open or if the closure applies to “locals.” He made it clear, with capital letters, “THE SEASIDE BEACH IS CLOSED!”

We are all looking at a new normal and are following Seaside’s guidelines.

Without our daily dose of being able to be outisde with nature, about living near a lot of parks and not being able to visit the parks, about living at the beach and not being able to walk on the sands, all the while honoring the state’s order to being safe and saving lives during the pandemic crisis— art can help us all cope and offers us hope.

Q: What is realism in the arts, you ask?

A: Realism, sometimes callednaturalism, in the arts is the attempt to represent subject matter truthfully, without artificiality and avoiding artistic conventions, or implausible, exotic, and supernatural elements.  This is the type of art Dorota Haber-Leligh creates.

Although some would think that art is not essential, however, in our world,  indeed, art saves.

“For if you think art is not essential try to spend any shelter-at- home time without music, books, poems, movies and time to create.”

We respect the Governor’s guidelines for business restrictions in the wake of  COVID-19.

We are continuing in a course of action despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.

We hope to see you on the other side of the pandemic.

We are persevering.

“We promise you that we are taking time to stay in touch with the art community that surrounds the gallery, including staff, artists, fellow curators and collectors. Enduring relationships have always been integral to operating the gallery. We hope to weather the storm.” D. Fairweather.

We are committed to carefully reopening our doors when the government begins to lift business restrictions.

“I will be more than thrilled to be opening when it is safe to do so. Our gallery cannot exist in an online-only world. The gallery is a personal social space where every visitor is greeted personally by myself or my staff. We are always happy to answer questions and talk about the art we represent. That is what we live for.”  D. Fairweather
