By request, SEA SYMPHONY article and inspirations from artist Jan Rimerman.

Sea Symphonies are more than being under the sea; it is all of the activity and excitement which goes on above the surf in a collection of rings, ropes, and boats.

The fishers of the ocean inspire paintings. A seaport offers mystery, a gritty natural beauty, and reveals a gentle ruggedness that takes you back to a time when the seas were as fierce as the people living upon them.  

Paintings depict sea remnants, resonating in pulses of lives long past. They are full of texture and secrets, which allow you almost to feel the salty wind and smell the briny sea.

Histories of lives echo over the misty water when walking on a pier during an early morning fog. A dawn walk along the seaboard offers crisp, spicy air over a low-tide land with barnacle-encrusted rocks exposed.

Frequently with no soul in sight, it feels like the world has rolled back into the centuries. Strolling on a deserted wharf, with disrupted sea birds overhead, one can discover shells underneath the planks, image histories in the bits of broken pottery, and wonder about the battered parts of boats. You absorb the energy of the generations and the ever-changing sea moods while pondering the trappings of generations of hard-working people whose blood responds to the sea calling.  –Jan Rimerman

Last call. Sea Symphony through June 25 An exhibition at Fairweather’s that features the newest original work from regional artists Sandy Viisse, Dorota Haber-Lehigh, Emily Miller, Gretha Lindwood, Jo Ann Pari- Mueller, Martha Lee, and Jan Rimmerman.

“Wishing Stones” original watercolor, pen, and ink by JoAnn Pari-Mueller

12 x 22 framed

Serpentinized peridotite (serpentinite ocean stone) of the Mona Formation, Archean about 2.6 billion years old.

“Simple Pleasures” watercolor by JoAnn Pari-Mueller

12 x 16 framed

Collecting ocean stones refers to the prime elements in ancient foundations and are used in the scriptures as metaphors signifying strength, steadiness, and durability.

I have always lived in the countryside and always been a collector. I was raised in farmland Wisconsin and moved to farmland Oregon in my mid-twenties, continuously amassing interesting objects of nature and hand-made textiles and crafts from around the world.

I use watercolors, pastels, marbling, collage, and/or calligraphy to put down on paper the observations I make about the colors, lines, shapes, and patterns of these natural and handcrafted items. It is my goal to have others take away some of the awe I feel when studying their intricacies.

Fine details catch my eye. I am interested in the relationship between objects – the “collector mentality.”  I like the starkness of a subject against a white background, but may also intersperse geometric lines or shapes with the mostly curvilinear subjects.”  JoAnn Pari-Mueller

After 15 years as an art museum tour guide, in 2009, I began immersing myself in art classes at area art schools and colleges. I am an active member of the Oregon Society of Artists, the Watercolor Society of Oregon, and the Portland Society for Calligraphy and have participated in numerous exhibits throughout Oregon.

Music has always been an important connection in my family. Every summer, I joined my grandparents at classical music concerts near their home on Deer Isle, a small island off the coast of Maine. After their passing last year, I began creating artwork with sheet music from their home.”   –Emily Miller

This brand-new collection of Ocean Baskets combines my memories of music with my ongoing work in reclaimed fishing gear. These Ocean Baskets include reclaimed rope from Deer Isle’s lobster fishing industry, along with rope from the Oregon coast, stitched on my grandmother’s sewing machine.”  EM 


Emily Miller often incorporates natural and reclaimed materials into a wide range of work, including watercolor and encaustic painting, mixed media sculpture, functional porcelain ware, and interactive installation art. Her traveling installations include Ghost Net Landscape, a collaborative community installation transforming reclaimed fishing gear into art, and 1000 Moons, an art installation and grief process in handmade paper. She has been a practicing artist for over twenty-five years, and a full-time professional artist since 2016. Her award-winning work is included in public and private collections around the United States.

I have spent my life on the coast, and all my artwork has its roots in my love of the sea. My work explores natural beauty and cycles of change centered around coastal environments, where our human connection to nature becomes clear. I am based on land near the coast. range in Oregon. My work draws direct inspiration from the Pacific Northwest coast as well as my background in California, Kauai, and Down East Maine.” EM

About the LIFE FORMS of sea stars:
Sea stars are invertebrates related to sea urchins, sea cucumbers, and sand dollars, all of which have spiny skin that helps to protect them from predators. Sea stars are saltwater fanatics. Usually, they live for about 10 years, but some can live up to 35 years. They eat clams, snails, or oysters.

The baskets begin as ghost nets: fishing rope washed ashore on the beaches. Cleaned, unraveled, and restitched, the colorful rope becomes a collection of unique baskets accented with local stones and other treasures. The color and condition of each unique piece of rope serves as an artist’s palette – from freshly cut potwarp lines at local fisheries, to wild and eroded flotsam weathered by months or years at sea. —Emily Miller

Meticulous displays with disciplined attention to design perspectives. 

Find harmony in exquisite materials, combined with the spirit of many artists who know how to apply the mark of being in the Northwest.
Find where interior design is not decorating but rather giving coastal homes a peaceful lifestyle.

Find where everyday dreams are integrated with irreplaceable humanity, friendship, and beauty.

Find beautiful things. This is Fairweather.

 
I have created new illustrations for the Fairweather April exhibition that depict spring native flowers and native butterflies, moths, hummingbird and other species. 
I wanted to show a relationship between various plants and insects, celebrating our Pacific Northwest ecology. 
Many insects depend on native plants for both feeding and as host plants, layering their eggs on the particular plants. 
I wanted to show the plants not in isolation but as part of a larger community.
