Since March, the gallery has tried to find solutions when, perhaps, others saw only losses. We have followed all the safety guidelines without whining and took an early leadership position in steadily promoting the arts, local artists, handmade goods and shopping local. We have continued delivering artist news, stories, ideas, and helped everyone stay connected through Fairweather blog posts, virtual shows, and limited attendance after hour events. And, finally as the year 2020 is nearly ready to be boxed up and put away in the history books, we have chosen to highlight glittering light and hope amidst the past months of darkness.
We are staying home for the holidays and are looking forward to seeing you all on the other side of good in January 2021.

The exhibition, which runs through Dec. 23, transformed the gallery into “an all-art, all-original, all-local fine art and fine craft gift destination where guests could, truly, shop safely.”
This lovely establishment is an important part of the cultural fabric of Seaside, as well as a dedicated supporter of coastal conservation!” — recent review from North Coast Land Conservancy, NCLC.
