“Ocra Frolic” 24 x 24″ mixed media by Jan Rimerman

“Orca Friends”  24 x 24″ mixed media by Jan Rimerman

Q: What is the inspiration for The Orca Whale Collection?

A: The Orca Whale Collection is inspired by the love of these graceful animals.  Having a studio on Orcas Island for many years brought me up close and personal to these animals.  Watching them in the wild as they danced through the San Juan currents off the state of Washington is truly an experience. 

Observing the beautiful playfulness with each other as they breach, communicate and then disappear into the deep ocean is unforgettable.  There is an important Whale Museum on San Juan Island which gives a comprehensive explanation of the history of the orca pods and scientific information on how they operate as a species. It also brings to the surface the environmental issues that are harming the orca whale’s health and well being.

The Orca Whale painting series has five 24” x 24” paintings that all work together.  They would be impressive exhibited down a large stairway or in an office complex.  The collection reminds me how fabulous yet fragile these mammals are.  Note that the whales in the paintings are not whole.  Little by little these wonderful beings are disappearing.  Their food source of salmon is shrinking, pollution and plastics are invading their environment and whale watching is disrupting their daily lives.  My intent is to bring forth the magic of these creatures while reminding us that we can all do a small part to help protect our fellow beings.

Orca Sightings Through the Roof on Oregon Coast by Oregon Coast Beach Connection staff

 

Recent reports indicate a little Orca spy hopping, which is always spectacular.

The Transient Killer Whale Research Project actually identified the three Orcas in the various footage and photos spotted along the Oregon coast.  According to their lead scientist, Josh McInnes, they were the cataloged whales known as T049A2, T073, and T073D. They are known to be travel in coastal inland waters of Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and southeast Alaska.

On May 18, 2021, orcas were reported at the Cove in Seaside, which is a rare sight.

Among the finds:

And, too, just this weekend, those in Gearhart got to watch grays and Orcas. First, a series of spouts from a couple of gray whales, and then there was an Orca surfacing behind them a way back. 

Even spotting gray whales – which are still migrating up the coast – is a patience game, so finding an Orca will be similar. It’s important to note gray whales have no dorsal fin (top fin), but killer whales do.

Q: What do Orcas symbolize?

A: The Orca symbolizes family, romance, longevity, harmony, travel, community and protection. Orcas travel in large family groups, working together to protect all members of their pod.

“Fabric, needle, and thread became a part of my experience at an early age. Mother gave me a needle and thread of my own when I was about five and I embroidered my first tea towel. The desire to embellish is inherent in me. Art is everywhere. With a studio filled with machines and fabrics which had been gathered over the years is my creative haven now. I design quilts, utility items and, dare I say, art work, without restraint. Dreams keep me motivated.”

Why is working with your hands good, you ask?
They actually produce endorphins, reducing your stress and anxiety levels. Working with your hands is a way of improving your mental health. They’re also a great way to relieve stress, improve neuroplasticity, and work on your skills, concentration, and calmness.

“Driftwood and Milky Way” nightscape photography by Bob Kroll

$550.

Artist’s statement:

“This beautiful piece of driftwood was found during a late-night exploration on the South end of Rockaway Beach.  The photos used to create this image were taken during the early morning of June 23, 2020, around 1:00 a.m.  This image is a blend of multiple frames taken without moving the camera; which combine different focus points, exposure settings, shutter speeds, and “light painting” the driftwood with a flashlight in order to create the final image.” 

For maximum longevity it is framed under UV filtering ArtGlass ™  and is printed at a size of 16″ x 24″ on archival paper with pigments inks using UltraChrome®   

“A Rare Visitor” nightscape photography by Bob Kroll

$750.

Artist’s statement:

“In July 2020, Comet Neowise put on a dazzling display and was visible in much of the Northern Hemisphere.  The comet was only discovered on Mar. 20, 2020 by NASA’s Near Earth Object Wide-field Survey Explorer (NEOWISE) mission and is not be seen again for another 6800 years. This signed photograph of the comet over Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach, Oregon, was taken on July 14th just after 11:00 p.m.”

For maximum longevity it is framed under UV filtering ArtGlass ™  and is printed at a size of 16″ x 24″ on archival paper with pigments inks using UltraChrome®   

“The Lion Sleeps” nightscape photography by Bob Kroll

$495.

Artist’s statement:

“The sea stack known as Lion Rock is located at the North end of Arcadia Beach State Recreation area, between Cannon Beach and Arch Cape.  This image had been in my mind for months and required the right combination of clear night skies, low tide, and alignment of The Milky Way.

The photos to create this image were taken on the early morning of July 14, 2020 between 1:00 and 1:30 a.m.  This image is a blend of multiple frames without moving the camera; with a combination of different focus points, exposure settings, shutter speeds, and painting the Lion Rock with a flashlight; in order to create the final image.”

For maximum longevity it is framed under UV filtering ArtGlass ™  and is printed at a size of 16″ x 24″ on archival paper with pigments inks using UltraChrome®   

Q: What is  astrophotography, you ask?
A:  Astrophotography is photography of astronomical bodies and celestial events including stars, the moon, the sun, planets, asteroids, and galaxies. Night photography containing large swaths of sky with stars is considered astrophotography.

Bob Kroll Photographer

“I have been passionate about photography for nearly 30 years, with much of my work focused on travel, landscape, and wildlife.  For me, photography is a means of self-expression and creativity, and it gives me joy in at least 4 different ways.  First, I find joy in being outdoors in nature, envisioning a unique composition, and working to create a photo that will display that vision.  Second, there is joy once the photo is “developed” in seeing that creative vision realized.  Third, it brings me joy to share my images with others and know that the work is appreciated.  And fourth, there is great joy in continuing to learn and improve as an artist. 

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. Recently, I have begun to explore nightscape imaging – combining landscape features with astrophotography.”

Through Sept. 25th 

OVER and UP September Art Exhibition featuring Northwest artists Paul Brent, Victoria Brooks, Patricia Clark-Finley, Pam Haunschild, Bob Kroll, Jan Rimerman, Emily McNeil, Neal Maine and Peg Wells.

OVER and UP focuses on contemporary art, showcasing a wide variety of art forms, mediums and expressions.

My nightscape images seem perfectly suited for this exhibit, “OVER and UP,” as the stars and other celestial bodies in our solar system rise Up in the night sky and are visible Over the landscape.  The long exposures needed to create these images allow the camera’s sensor to see very dim light that our eyes could not otherwise detect and allow us to appreciate the vastness and beauty of the universe.  Combining a view of the night sky with details of the foreground landscape seems to bring the images to life.  In order to see the details of the landscape element, I often use a technique called “light painting,” using a light source such as a flashlight to “brush” light onto the object during the exposure.  Some of these nightscape images have been blended from multiple frames to provide the desired exposure or focus through all parts of the photo.” Bob Kroll

Gallerist Denise Fairweather draws upon her life experience in design, principally as a senior level project designer/ Allied Member of the American Society of Interior Designers.  She thinks in terms of staging when designing exhibits.

 

 

“I do see staging art as a kind of a set.  When an exhibit is set, complete with the proper lighting, signing and art on display, so to speak, I want to see a perfect scene, for the artists, of course, for the visitors.  The assembled accessories  are placed to complement the art created with a specifically appointed theme … all working together to create a perfect exhibition.”

Q: What goes into the thought process when selecting an exhibition title, you ask?

A:  An exhibition title is selected one year in advance. HELLO SUNSHINE was chosen to herald in the Indian Summer season, at time when the sun, seems to (finally) shine on the North coast lands.

 

Yet, too, as in the August 2020  exhibition, a theme became a metaphor in relation to current events happening; it became a beacon of light, artistically speaking, amidst all the the darkness in the world happening during COVID-19.

**What is a Western Gull, you ask?

Did you know that there’s no such thing as a Seagull? Say what!? Yep, there are actually many different species of gulls that live near the sea… 28 types in North America to be precise, and not one of them is named Seagull.

The birds that we often call Seagulls here on the Oregon coast are in fact called Western Gulls. Endemic to the Pacific Northwest coast, it might be hard to imagine, but Western Gulls have the smallest population of any of the North American Gulls. They also have another unique quality: they’re the only gull that nests along the rocky coastline, rather than in estuaries.- – Seaside Aquarium article Aug/2020

 

“Blue Boats” Mask

Made of 100% high thread count cotton and lined with soft OEKO-TEX certified Bamboo/Cotton fabric

Reviews:

“Love the adjustable straps, the best construction I have found.”  

“Amazing sewing skills and pattern.”

“Beautifully sewn, wonderful breathable quality fabric.”

“Very good quality.  Still looks like new and  has kept its lovely shape after many machine washings.”

 

How are the masks made, you ask?

Each mask is constructed of with one layer of heavyweight “quilters cotton” with a thread count of at least 180, and has certified  Bamboo cotton liner. Each mask takes one hour to make and all the seams are double stitched.

 

THE POWER OF MASKS:

At long last, we have made a truly game-changing scientific breakthrough in preventing the spread of COVID-19. The impact of this breakthrough seems almost too good to be true.

We have found a disease control tool that when used properly, can dramatically reduce the person-to-person transmission of COVID-19. Studies have shown that this tool could reduce transmission by 50%  to 85%. It has no significant side effects. And with each passing day, the scientific research showing the tool’s effectiveness gets stronger. -Gavin Yamey/June 2020

 

“I have chosen to donate a mask for every one purchased.” BF

Indeed, the local textile artist has donated masks to the staff at ACE Hardware, to the staff at Seaside Coffee House, to the staff at Fairweather’s, and many more staff members in our business neighborhood and hometown. Truly, it is now a beloved community-wide “Doing Good Works” platform!

“A new Pelican painting in oil that I completed for the 2020 SHORE THINGS exhibit at the Fairweather Gallery in Seaside, Oregon. The exhibit opened July 4th and continues through July 30th.”  Paul Brent

 

Grace notes received about Paul Brent’s “Salty Pelican”

Tillamook Head and the Necanicum River in Seaside. Never get tired of looking at it. JW

Fantastic!! You NEVER disappoint! Just beautiful! Best to you at your exhibit. PS

Beautiful bird and quite at home in that familiar setting! CM

Spectacular! This portrayal moves me beyond words. TB

Very soothing artwork. We need a lot of this now. JM

He has such character. Beautiful scenery! JG

He looks like he could speak to us! RB

 

To read more, please visit Paul Brent’s artist tab at  fairweatherhouseandgallery.com

 

 

Q: Where in the world is Tillamook Head, you ask?

A: Tillamook Head  is high off the Pacific coast of northwest Oregon in the United States. It is located in Clatsop County, approximately 5 mi southwest of Seaside. It is a steep rocky bluff on the ocean, approximately 1,200 ft high, forested with Sitka spruce.

 

 

 

Q: Where in the world is the Necanicum River, you ask?

A: The Necanicum River enters the Pacific Ocean at  Seaside, Oregon with its final approach to the ocean is nearly parallel to the coast running south to north through the downtown.

It is approximately 21 miles long and drains a timber-producing area of the Oregon Coast Range in Clatsop County.

 

Necanicum an anglicization of Ne-hay-ne-hum, which was the name of an Indian lodge near the ocean (now Seaside, Oregon) and utilizes the prefix, ne-, meaning “place.” William Clark first marked it as Kil â mox (a variant that would eventually become Killamook, then Tillamook) to describe a “butifull river” that emptied into ..

 

Brown Pelican photo

The  abundance of this seabird species represents a success story for conservationists, who halted the use of DDT in the United States.

The Brown Pelican is a comically elegant bird with an oversized bill lives year-round in estuaries and coastal habitats.

They have long necks and bills with a stretchy throat with an expandable pouch to hold food after capturing fish.

“Devil’s Cauldron” oil impasto painting by Leah Kohlenberg. SOLD!

The Devil’s Cauldron is a cliff-backed cove just south of Short Sand Beach.

The ocean swells churn and froth around a handful of sea stacks,  making this a spectacular view on a fine day.

A viewpoint at the top of the cliffs can be reached from the nearby Oregon Coast Trail.

“I have been drawing and painting for 18 years, but the impasto work at Fairweather’s is entirely new for me.This oil painting was inspired by the Oregon coast, but the colors are wild and bright (sometimes wacky) and the land forms are intentionally abstract.” Leah Kohlenberg

Spot on!

Cauldron oil impasto by Leah Kohlenberg placed in a Fairweather lay-away plan!

 

 

Q: Did you know that people buy art on lay-away installment plans?  

A: It is a concept that has always been part of the art gallery world. 

 

 

 

“Following the Flowers” by Bev Drew Kindley SOLD!

 

“An Oregon artist, I paint impressionistic landscapes “en plein air” my paintings are based on site experience, memories, sketches and photos.

Searching for the brightness and joy in every season, inspired by the light and energy I find in nature, I experiment to transform the excitement I

feel into colors, shapes, movements and brushstrokes.”   Bev Drew Kindley

 

 

 

Q:  Who was the woman artist who did a painting demo in a Seaside hotel recently?  She was painting a landscape. I would like to purchase a work of art by the artist. She was very generous with her time visiting with me.

A: The River Inn at Seaside sponsored a painting LIVE event with Fairweather artist Bev Drew Kindley.  Painting demonstrations are a wonderful way to view an artist working.  Please make an appointment to visit the Fairweather Gallery in Seaside. This is the best way to see Bev’s newest work. In addition to being a Fairweather resident artist, Bev Drew Kindley participates in solo exhibitions, pop-up galleries, and studio shows.

 

 

“Following the Flowers” by Bev Drew Kindley placed in a Fairweather lay-away plan!

 

 

Fairweather’s lay-away plan for art:

We take the price of the art divide by however many months the patron wants to pay the art off and set up a payment plan with an automatic credit card payment each month. 

The art remains in the gallery, safely stored, in layaway until it is paid. There are no additional holding or finance charges, and the art may be viewed anytime a patron wishes to visit it until it is ready to go home.

Fairweather’s has always believed art should be available to all people and that is why we offer lay-away payment plans for art.

“Art touches people in a way that words cannot.

Especially now in our time of Covid-19 crisis, art reaches out and holds a light of hope.

Through color and expression, art is healing for the artist and for humanity.

In our most dire hours, art keeps us sane, lights the dark and ensures we stay human.”

Stay-at-home quarantine

“That’s me back there!. This plant is outrageous!  I cut 9 artichokes today.”  Christine Trexel, artist/ fellow gardener.

Comments to CT:

“Wow. I did not know the plants got that big. I have never grown them.”

“Never seen them growing before! They look so healthy!!!”
“You will have tasty eats during stay home time.”
“What!!!! I love artichokes! You are so lucky!”
“Cute posts on the garden, I may just have to try some recipes!” Christine Trexel
And, so, the stay-at-home order baked a lot of delicious artichoke dishes.

Gardening and cooking became an excellent way to fight stress and attention fatigue.

In quarantine, many of us were more alone than we’ve ever been, experiencing, for the first time, prolonged solitude.
