Fairweather House and Gallery
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.
An art patron appreciates the artist stories that are posted with the art on display.
Fairweather’s represents 200 regional artists, showing original works of art through rotating exhibitions throughout the year.
And, too, Fairweather’s welcomed new historic Gilbert District business owners of The Whet Spot during the opening reception of SEEK at Fairweather’s.

Seek, inquire, search for, pursue, long for, wish for, desire, look for, expect from…
