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

Representing a collection of fine art and craft by an exceptional group of regional artists for over sixteen years, from traditional to transitional, contemporary to realism, and impressionism to emerging art.

You can now shop from a curated edit of preloved designer pieces, be it a Ralph Lauren purple label,  RALPH LAUREN black label,  green label LAUREN Ralph Lauren, or red label RALPH by Ralph Lauren. 


RL designer collection label was black in the 2000s and is currently a purple label for couture lines. Green Lauren labels were boutique clothing, and red Ralph labels were casual lines.

Q: Why genuine preowned luxury, you ask?

A: Spotting a trend is a newfangled strategy for fashion investing. And inspired by fellow vintage artists Rene Hafeman and Jessica Stokes, both have lectured to clients “buy the classics, like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and other luxury lines.” The gallerist at Fairweather’s worked in high-end fashion representing the Ralph Lauren brand and the Jones black label as a regional fashion specialist. It has recently dropped a private collection of chic designer fashions. Available in Misses sized 4-6 petite only.

And, too, one-of-a-kind designer label high-end shoes are available from a former Nordstrom Personal Touch shopper and stylist.  Rarely worn in sizes 8 to 9.  Revisit the glamour of a night out in style.

“Pre-owned luxury is now a real and deeply rooted trend, especially among fashion-savvy customers.”

Also, on view at Fairweather’s is the Ralph Lauren 2007 limited edition folio hardcover book with a foreword written by Audrey Hepburn including a collection of the iconic Lauren fashion looks from 1967 through 2006.

In addition, a collection of hardcover interior design books, including chef-inspired cookbooks, have been curated for the Fairweather gallery.

Choosing well speaks.  It is about a way of life where we have a kind of collaboration with the environment which provides us with so much of our livelihood.

For Valentine’s Day, February 14,  2022. Exclusive jewelry designs and chocolates.

Loving relationships require a “we”-rather than focusing on “me.”

Just in. Chanel’s hearts were designed into lovely pendant necklaces by NW jewelry designer Rene’e Hafeman for 2022.

“Growing up, my grandmother would pull out her jewelry box, take each piece out one-by-one and explain in detail what it was, where it came from and why it was so special to her. This developed my love of jewelry.” — RH

CHANEL heart pendant on 14k 18″ gold-filled chain. One only. For 2022.

I started to think of how the treasured pieces, many handed down from generation to generation, could be re-imagined into new design. I give them new life.”  –RH

The use of “we” implies a strong bond: a partnership, a team, a couple, a family, and a community. When you use “we,” you connect your thoughts, values, and intentions to another who you feel is on the same page as you in the chapter of life.

And, too, we -the Fairweather Gallery in Seaside, Oregon, are pleased to offer Fran’s Chocolates, for discrimmating couples, who know.

What is designer jewelry, you ask?

Designer jewelry usually refers to jewelry that adheres to a certain aesthetic determined by an individual craftsman. The emphasis is on a particular aesthetic, often employs precious or unusual materials, and sometimes contains handcrafted elements.

“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”
~ Emily Dickinson


And, too, just in! 
New hardcover cookbooks with chef-inspired recipes combined with inspiring plated photographs and Seattle chocolatier Fran’s famous caramels. In addition, Fairweather’s offers a fine selection of hardcover design, travel, and garden books.

“Now, my hunger to cook for those I love has translated into self care. Without friends over the past year, I have cooked for myself; and I realize now that my life has been much the richer for it. When at times it has felt like the world is crumbling around me, a proper meal is something I look forward to, taking the time to lay the table prettily, and eating by soft candlelight. My best distraction lately has been ending the day with a sweet morsel of fine chocolate.

As this global pandemic lifts and, little by little, the world opens up, without doubt what I look forward to most is sitting once again round a table in the company of those I love and eating together. But for now I’m plotting tonight’s dinner, leafing through cookbooks looking for food I long to eat; and then taking the time to cook it just for me. There is comfort— a lot of love—in that, too.” — S. McAlpine

The pandemic year, although stressful, has given us a lot of  time to think—about our NW artists, and specifically, the role that the gallery can have on our patrons. Indeed, many artists have produced more new work than ever before.  We are grateful for their inspirations and have been fortunate to have had the time to create new vibrant displays to complement the artwork and to highlight the month of February, always and forever, known as the season of Love.
