Hand-cut abalone shell pendant with cultured pearls, hand-wired in gold, hand-carved shell leaves, and laser-cut shells, with selected graduated pearl potatoes necklace. Surely, one-of-a-kind.

 

Go, sit upon the lofty hill, And turn your eyes around, Where waving woods and waters wild do hymn an autumn sound. The summer sun is faint on them— The summer flowers depart— Sit still—  Except your musing heart.”  Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Pat Tulip is a signature textile and jewelry artist for the Fairweather Galler. Shed recently opened up her garden and home for the 2022 Fall C.B. Garden and Cottage Tour, a favorite local fundraiser.

BALANCING ACT tablescape #3: velvet and chintz hand-sewn pumpkins with dried gourd stems by textile artist Pat Tulip, mouth-blown stemware, exquisitely crafted, highly coveted Melmac grape clusters cascading over a Fairweather signature mouth-blown glass vase, autumn oil painting by Melissa Jander, silk ribbon rolls, and artichoke retro-resin vegetables.

Q: Why are retro/ mid-century faux veggies and fruit trending, you ask?

A: It was an element of surprise, happiness, and playfulness that fake veggies and glass fruit are used as props as display items in the gallery. Customers asked if the fake food items were available for sale.

“Consumers are craving interior design choices that are as comforting as they are whimsical.”

Q: Why the exhibition theme of the BALANCING ACT, you ask?

A: Saying goodbye to summer and the seasonal art on display could be challenging. However, highlighting the time during early fall has historically proved fruitful. It is time to hit the reset button and balance the indoor and outdoor activities on the calendar. The September fall season is the adult time to visit Seaside and view comforting and calming art. It’s the second summer.
