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

“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/ 

‘Metolius Creek Convergence” abstract mixed media by Bill Shumway

 

Convergence: a location where air flows or ocean currents meet, characteristically marked by upwelling (of air) or downwelling (of water).

Meticulous: showing great attention to detail; very careful and precise.

 

“Creek Reflections” abstract acrylic by Bill Shumway

 

“Row + River” abstract acrylic by Bill Shumway

 

During his time earning an MA in painting at the University of Massachusetts,  Bill Shumway operated galleries in Amherst, Northampton and Martha’s Vineyard, MA. before moving to Oregon. He founded and operated Pegasus Gallery in Corvallis for more than 35 years before his retirement. 

The gallery, which is now owned by his daughter Paige, served regional and international artists over the years and generated collaborative events with other galleries. 

 

 

 

 

The Green Room

Fairweather House and Gallery

612 Broadway St.

Seaside, Oregon

Fittingly, the first Fairweather presentation of the year, for the month-long exhibit, the GREEN ROOM, spotlights art by regional fellow gallerists.

In the entertainment business, the green room is the space in a theatre or similar venue that functions as a waiting room and lounge for artists before, during, and after a performance or show when they are not engaged on stage. The origin of the term is often ascribed to such rooms historically being painted green.

Featuring:

Watercolors by Bill Baily, exhibiting artist from the Portland Art Museum

Fresco art by Agnes Field, founder and past president of the non-profit Astoria Visual Arts

Watermedia by Diana Nadal, fellow designer and frequently showing at Gusitina Gallery

Mixed media work by Jan Rimerman, curator for Lakewood Center Gallery and Rain Spark Gallery Director

Abstracts by Bill Shumway, founder of Pegasus Gallery and creator of the Vistas and Vineyards en plein art program

Other historical green room fun facts:

Richard Southern, in his studies of Medieval theatre in the round, states that in this period the performing area was referred to as the green. This central space, often grass-covered, was used by the actors, while the surrounding space and circular banks were occupied by the spectators. From this source then The Green has been a traditional actors’ term for the stage. The green room could thus be considered the transition room on the way to the green/stage. Technical staff at some theatres (such as the London Coliseum) still refer to the stage as the green.

Another explanation is that in the 18th-century theater makeup was a greenish-clay in color.  It took a long time to dry without cracking, so actors waited in the “green room” until it had fully cured.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

And, too,  GREEN ROOM will feature spring vignettes by D. Fairweather, gallerist/ allied member, A.S.I.D., American Society of Interior Designers and GREEN ROOM  display images by Linda Fenton-Mendenhall, special events photographer.

“King of the Forest” mixed media on birch panel by Jan Rimerman

36″ x 36″ x 1.75″

“My paintings are powered charcoal, gelled onto watercolor paper with as many as twenty-two layers of transparent paint, and, yes, it takes time  for a layer to dry before another layer is applied.  The resulting art has a three-dimensional aspect.  Truly, working with charcoal gives the  painting visual textural mystery. The technique allows the viewer to have their own adventure.  In different light or from different angles, various images come forward or recede, offering a new perspective each time it is viewed.”    Jan Rimerman
