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

Arts and culture illuminate the better parts of humanity, and do not exist on a separate plane from political, social or moral issues. This is made evident by the countless acts of unity and support for Ukraine in the face of this crisis.

We are inspired by the courage and resilience of Ukraine and its people as they defend their lives and way of life. We hope that their spirit ushers in peace and understanding around the world.” IMG

Fairweather House and Gallery  opening artist reception

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

 

“Fairweather House and Gallery has become one of the historic Gilbert District’s sought after destinations offering an ever-changing amazing visual experience.”  –Seaside Signal/ 2008

“Stroll across the arched Broadway Bridge and you’ll see the historic Gilbert Block Building, est. 1914. The upscale Fairweather House and  Gallery, at 612 Broadway Street,  is a must-visit for anyone who is serious about Northwest artists.”  –Seaside Visitor’s Bureau/ 

 

As this holiday season is upon us, it is important for each of us to do what we can for one another – it is the ultimate gift.
Staying safe.  Staying well.

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.

Enjoy the display images from ALL THAT GLITTERS show, the Fairweather December exhibition.

“Truely, we are looking forward to seeing you all on the other side of good in January 2021.”  FH&G

 

“There is a certain spirit that is inherent in the arts.  There is a tenacity, a sort of can-do attitude that represents the best of creating, thinking and doing.  There is a certain fearlessness in not being dismayed by events that are out of control. Indeed, artists have a unique sensitivity in the ability to pivot and meet needs that enlighten and inform.”  D. Fairweather, gallerist

“Thanks for the opportunity to share what I’ve been working on. Here are some of my latest paintings.”  Melisaa Jander

Art during “shelter-in-studio by Melissa Jander

“Memories of Puebla” 16×20 oil on linen.

“Puebla is the location of one of the battles of independence for Mexico. “Cinco de Mayo” is the celebration the country chose as the festival, although it happened over a long period of time. Our family had the privilege to be in the town of Puebla on Cinco de Mayo and enjoy the parade and cultural festivities. Wishing everyone good health and creativity during these unprecedented times.”  Melissa Jander

“Also, my new studio is finished! I paint upstairs.  Downstairs is a woodworking shop for my spouse. This a dream come true and will be a wonderful place to create.”  Melissa Jander, artist working from home on an island in the San Juan/ WA

Melissa Jander began her studies in the field of technical drawing and architecture, later adding a Bachelor of Arts in Foreign Language and Literature from Washington State University, a Graphic Design Certificate from the Art Institute of Seattle, and a Web Design Certificate from Bellevue College. Continuing art instruction included the Gage Academy in Seattle, Kirkland Arts Center, and private art instruction. Melissa is a member of Women Artists of the West, American Impressionist Society, Oil Painters of America, and Camano Arts Association.

“From the Edge” Jan Shield

“I think this is a wonderful idea to show art being made. My work is full of energy to create a feeling of the air merging with the trees and fields where from the earth they grow. They express a sort of witness to the soil becoming the grass and how plant life abounds joined in a harmony of space and form.  Look forward to seeing you soon,  probably in May.”  Jan  Shield, Professor Emeritus of Art at Pacific University

Jan Shield was at Pacific University in Forest Grove for forty years, twenty one of them as chairman of the art department. His tenure is the longest of any professor in the school’s history.

Due to the  novel coronavirus the gallery shut its doors on March 15, 2020

Artist Mike Mason in his studio.

In order to protect the health and safety our guests, our community, and our staff (who are over the age of 65 and are deemed to be a high health risk), the Gallery is closing its doors to visitors through April.

“This decision comes after careful review of guidance from public health authorities and projections for the spread of COVID-19, and reflects our desire to ensure it is not contributing to transmission of the disease which could overwhelm our health care system. This is a difficult decision, but we are confident is the right choice.”

Please re-visit our previously published blog post articles throughout this time.

Questions or concerns, please email fairweatherkd@gmail.com.

Thank you for your understanding.

 

March 14, 2019 Question to the Fairweather artists.

Q: “Here is an idea. Please send images of the art being created in your studio during this crisis. We will publish  a blog post and keep it updated as you share with us what you are creating. Are you interested? Let me know your thoughts.”

 

 

 

“I am painting in my art studio.” Toni Avery

 

“Social distancing doesn’t require you to become a shut-in. I go outside to paint,”  en plein arist Emily Miller.

 

“In addition, I’m finishing up a few smaller baskets for a large collaborative display of reclaimed fishing rope ( ghost net collected by Cape Lookeout rangers).basket sculptures called Undersea Garden.”  Emily Miller

 

“I like this idea! You can use this one and will try to send a few more. Thanks for the up date about the gallery,” artist/ Professor Emeritus of Art Pacific University Jan Shield.

 

 

“It is my plan to create tomorrow, I would love to send some pictures while I am creating! I have been wondering how things will go with all of this virus worry.  If there is anything I can do to be of help, please don’t hesitate to ask.”  Rene’e Hafeman, jewelry designer.

 

“Here is an image of a book I just published in early 2020 on a series Weekend Projects  I tried to provide day-by-day instructions different projects which use one common element: stringers. Thanks for the proposal. I think it’s very useful to have a venue that helps especially during the crisis. I’m working now on a couple of new big works and will share photos as soon as I have them completed,”  fused glass artist Fyodor Zubanov.

 

“I have scheduled kids art on-line classes (ages 8-18) all week in three different time zones: Central Europe / US East Coast / and US West Coast time. We are learning how to draw puffins!”   Leah Kohlenberg www.leahkohlenberg.com/book-online

 

 

“Hope everyone is staying healthy! I’m staying home painting.” Pam Haunschild

“This strange virus has affected everyone.  We are 3 weeks behind the Italians infections so things are going to get way more interesting.  I appreciate the information and understand if other schedules need to be altered.  Thank you for keeping me updated. Stay safe!” Jan Rimerman, Artist/Art Administrator.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has  issued guidelines for “community mitigation strategies” to limit the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, which include recommendations for “social distancing”—a term that epidemiologists are using to refer to a conscious effort to reduce close contact between people and hopefully stymie community transmission of the virus.

 

 

  • Be in nature. Breathe fresh air. Notice things about the world around you that you didn’t see before.
  • Start birdwatching. Coronavirus hasn’t bothered the birds. Find out what species nest near you, dust off your binoculars if you’ve got ’em and download a birdwatching map.
  • Make art. Whether it’s a page out of a coloring book or paint-by-numbers masterpiece, a knitted scarf or a piece of pottery, creating will ease your mind and keep your fingers nimble.

 

 

“Thank you with the list of things to do.  It’s one of the most uplifting ones I’ve received,” artist Sandy Visse
