Fairweather House and Gallery
Fairweather Gallery’s July exhibition PLACE-BASED, an art show and sale, involves a focus on the importance and uniqueness of place.
While selecting the artworks to local context will appeal to the summertime tourists and visitors, behind the exhibit is an understanding that fosters regional artists and their connection within the community. The exhibit doubles down on a link with the history of both place and keeping close tabs on how artists are based in visual story telling.
Featuring Northwest artists Barbara Bacon Folawn, Paul Brent, Victoria Brooks, Pam Haunschild, Bev Drew Kindley, Phil Juttlestad, Lee Munsell, Jan Shield, and Sharon Kathleen Johnson.
FUN FACT: Paul Brent is celebrating 12 years with the Fairweather Gallery in 2021!
