For Fairweather’s FINDINGS exhibition, Paul Brent’s paintings.

Paul Brent is an artist whose work has become internationally known to represent the coastal lifestyle.

 

From his watercolors to his recent oil paintings he captures nature in its best and most idyllic form. While being best known for his beach subjects, he has painted landscapes that are equally indicative of his talent to recreate all aspects of nature. He especially enjoys painting local scenes and beachscapes that he views near his two home studios in Panama City, Florida and Seaside, Oregon.

Paul Brent was born in Oklahoma City and lived in rural Southwest Oklahoma with his family until he was thirteen. His parents, who were educators, moved their family to Long Beach, California, and Paul attended high school and California State College in Long Beach. He majored in art but in his junior year of college he transferred to the University of California at Berkeley to study architecture. He completed his Bachelors of Architecture and joined the Air Force where he was stationed in Panama City, Florida. There he met his wife, Lana Jane and after they were married he left the service and they returned to California where he completed his Masters degree in Architecture at Cal Berkeley.

He and Lana Jane have an art gallery in Panama City, Florida, where they live part of the year. From June to October they live in Seaside, Oregon, where they have had a home and an artist’s studio for the past 10 years.

 

Paul Brent exhibits his work in Seaside at Fairweather House and Gallery on Broadway.

 

Brent has been profiled in many publications including the Wall Street Journal, Coastal Living, Florida Monthly and many more.

Paul Brent, an artist who exhibits nationally, has been known from the beginning of his career as a watercolorist.

 

 

 

 

 

Multnomah Falls, a watercolor  by Paul Brent,  inspired by a recent river cruise going “against the current”  (traveling east on the Columbia River from the Pacific Ocean through The Dalles).

 

Q: Where is Multnomah Falls, you ask?
A: Multnomah Falls, at 611 feet, is the second tallest waterfall in the US and is located in the Columbia River Gorge. It is exactly halfway between Portland and Hood River, Oregon. According to Native American lore, Multnomah Falls was created to win the heart of a young princess who wanted a hidden place to bathe. Although you can see the top portion of the falls from Oregon Interstate Highway 84, to view both tiers you have to walk to the viewing area located in a carved-out opening in the rock face. Tilting your head up in the narrow rocky confines of the steep cliffs, you get a mind-boggling perspective on the sheer magnitude of the falls.

While Pelican near The Dalles, Oregon

New watercolor from Paul Brent, titled “White Pelican at The Dalles, Oregon”.

Q: Why  is the term “against the current” being used, you ask?

A:  The Columbia River is a river connecting the east-side watershed of the Cascade Mountain Range to the Pacific Ocean. The river has created a gorge through the Cascade Mountain Range. The Columbia River Gorge marks the state line between Oregon and Washington. The wide range of elevation and precipitation makes the Columbia River Gorge an extremely diverse and dynamic place. Ranging from 4,000 feet to sea level, and transitioning from 100 inches of precipitation to only 10 inches in 80 miles the Gorge creates a diverse collection of ecosystems from the temperate rain forest on the western end to the eastern grasslands with a transitional dry woodland between Hood River and The Dalles.

The gorge holds federally protected status as a National Scenic Area called the Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area and is managed by the Columbia River Gorge Commission and the US Forest Service. The gorge is a popular recreational destination.

Ellen Swanson< Art Walk hostess, presents a show and tell with art by Paul Brent that was created for an upcoming Beaver exhibit.

First Shout Out on a very special BEAVER exhibit!
Sara Vickerman, curator, speaks about “doing good works” for the Oregon beavers at the Moments Like This opening reception at the Fairweather Gallery on August 6, 2016.

“I am working with the Wetlands Conservancy, North Coast Land Conservancy, and several coastal watershed groups on a beaver art project. The purpose is to highlight the beauty and ecological significance of beavers in creating and maintaining wetland habitat. We currently have 75 artists and 5 venues, including the Fairweather Gallery at Seaside. Denise Fairweather will feature the beaver art during the May 6, 2017 Art Walk. We will also have presentations from resource professionals, tours of beaver dams, and possibly the author of Once They Were Hats (a new book on beaver).” –Sara Vickerman

Fun Fact:
Fairweather artists Paul Brent, Neal Maine, Nick Brakel, Mike Brown, Patricia Clark-Finley and Agnes Field are “busy as beavers” creating art work for the 2017 exhibit. Stay tuned for more news and updates.

And, too, a second shout out:
http://www.coastweekend.com August 8, 2016

FROM NEHALEM — The Lower Nehalem Watershed Council is partnering with The Wetlands Conservancy to host a Beaver Art Exhibit and Sale at the North County Recreation District during the month of August 2017 as part of a number of exhibits around the state.

The project sponsors are seeking artwork of all kinds for the Nehalem exhibition: photographs, paintings, prints, cards, quilts, etc. that depict beavers and wetland habitat. They can be in any style — realistic, abstract, whimsical, collage, and etc. Three-dimensional pieces could be ceramic, wood, fiber art, or other media.

Artists can choose to sell or display their work. A percentage of sales will help support the conservation activities of The Wetlands Conservancy and Lower Nehalem Watershed Council, a 501(c) (3) nonprofit dedicated to the preservation, protection and enhancement of the Lower Nehalem Watershed. An opening reception, presentations and tours are also being planned.

Interested artists should contact Sara Vickerman by email at svickerman@comcast.net or by calling 503-936-4284.

The Beaver Art Exhibit and Sale at the NCRD in Nehalem is just one of several art exhibits planned throughout Oregon by The Wetlands Conservancy’s Beaver Lodge advisory group in honor of International Beaver Day on April 7, 2017.

Events will kick off in February with a reception, exhibit and sale at Oregon State University’s LaSells-Stewart Center. Other exhibits and events will be held in Lake Oswego, Seaside and at the Oregon Zoo.

The beaver, Oregon’s state animal, has been woefully misunderstood and blamed for dam building, flooding and munching on plants. In fact, Oregon beavers, nearly extirpated by trappers by 1900, create wetlands, spawning and rearing habitat for salmon and steelhead, habitat for insects, birds and amphibians, and create pools that keep water clean and moderate fluctuations in water flow. They are nature’s hydrologists.

There is growing appreciation and recognition of the positive benefits that beavers play in Oregon. The planned art exhibits in 2017 are a way to raise the profile of beavers, wetlands and Oregon artists.

Seaside Moment

Seaside Sunset by Bev Drew Kindley original on canvas.

“A special moment on a Seaside evening when we can feel the atmosphere and the high-lighted textures at sunset.”–Bev

Seaside First Saturday Art Walk
August 6th, 5-7pm

Fairweather House and Gallery, 612 Broadway
Opening reception for MOMENTS LIKE THIS, an exhibition of selected art created by artists mesmerized by the sparkling ocean and fiery sunsets, “in light so soft and tender, despite its brilliance” as artist Henri Matisse said.

Artists appearing Bev Drew Kindley and Paul Brent, among others.

On certain days, and in a favorite spot, artist Bev Drew Kindley can be seen painting outside-usually about mid-afternoon, in the en plein air style, near the ocean. The artist, a native Oregonian, paints to understand the unique moments of light and weather. All of her recent work begins with the experience of the real location, later finished in the studio.

The artist, with dual degrees in Art and Philosophy, strives to encourage appreciation and protection of our heritage and world through her art.

Paul Brent is an artist whose paintings of coastal life and nature have gained widespread recognition both nationally and internationally.

He especially enjoys painting local scenes and beach scapes that he views near his two home studios in Panama City, Florida and Seaside, Oregon.

Take note: Paul Brent arrives to paint LIVE ™ during all summer Seaside First Saturday Art Walks at Fairweather’s.

“It’s hard to imagine that you think about something you’d like to happen, artists painting LIVE for visitors, and it happens beautifully. We are so very fortunate and grateful for artists and patrons.”–Denise Fairweather.

On July 2nd, for the opening reception of THE POWER OF TWO during the Seaside First Saturday Art Walk, two Fairweather resident artists, Paul Brent and Victoria Brooks, introduced the 2016 summer season with a Seaside Painting LIVE ™, our 8th summer edition!

“Thanks again for the wonderful reception and all your work putting on such a grand show! Such a lovely crew you have, as well.” –Victoria Brooks

Fairweather House and Gallery, 612 Broadway

Power of Two, an exhibition that includes regional artists who have produced a body of work that reads like an oasis of calm, a subtle backdrop during the time of high season in vacation land. Perhaps, the show title sounds a bit like a recipe for chaos given the summer busy activities and adventures, yet, when teamed with the artists selected and combined with the work they have created, the gallery truly adds a dimension of serenity that is sensed as much as seen. Power of Two through July 31st.

And so, it was for the eighth consecutive year watercolorist Paul Brent, as well as oil painter Victoria Brooks painted LIVE at Fairweather’s!!

Each artist offered visitors an art demonstration, artist lecture and, too, a signed work of art as a raffle gift during the Seaside First Saturday Art Walk on July 2nd!

Indeed meeting an artist in person and listening to an artist talk is half the fun of attending an Art Walk!” –Denise Fairweather, gallery owner.

Grace note received:
“Fantastic article! You have such a gift with words and putting everything together so eloquently! Thank you so much!” Victoria
