And, too, Melissa Jander’s painting “Lively Gathering” won “Best of Show” from Women Artists of the West.
Jane Hunt, a Master Signature Member was the show judge and offered these kind comments:
“This piece epitomizes the expression ‘painting light’. You can almost feel the air in this piece and that coupled with clever composition, strong drawing and nuanced color harmony makes the viewer keep coming back.”
“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! While we are waiting to be able to visit again, she is still curating her monthly art shows. I’m honored to be featured this month for “Summer Served.” — Melissa Jander
