“First Snow” original oil on board by Blue Bond

 

“Winter visitors” original oil on canvas by Blue Bond

Fairweather House and Gallery exhibits selected oil paintings by Blue Bond, a well-known Northwest artist and fellow Seaside gallerist.

 

 

“Blue Bond paints with bold swaths of color, showing inner emotion and incredible talent.”

 

About the artist:

Blue was born in Kentucky and comes by his southern charm with grace and dignity. His father was a lifelong military man, so the family moved frequently, even to Panama. Blue has always loved to travel, see new and exciting places, and has based much of his art on the vibrancy of life itself.

Art has played an extremely important role in his life, from designing and painting signs, doing window displays, to producing thousands  of oil paintings over the span of fifty years. Blue is a self-taught artist.

Blue’s bold, colorful paintings can be found in art collections throughout the United States and Canada. He is best known for his Western art and portraits.

 

“In 2017, Blue and his wife Karen opened the Blue Bond Studio and Gallery in Seaside, Oregon.  He began teaching art to novices as well as accomplished painters. His ability to teach students to paint what they see is at the heart of his lessons.  They learn to view the world through the eyes of a painter, and gain real appreciation for all forms of art.  Accomplished artists learn from Blue how to paint fast, and wet on wet. Blue also teaches painting in oil and acrylic to students from 12 years old and up, in private or group classes.”  copyright Blue Bond Art Studio and Gallery.

Blue Bond’s selected art is on display on our wall for the entire duration of an exhibit.

 Fairweather House and Gallery has 2,500 sq. ft. of exhibition space and features regional artists.
