Jewelry artist Kory Delannoy creates intricate silver wire-wrapped pendants intertwined with precious stones. He masterfully transforms the metal material into fluid organic-shaped forms that ethereally clasp around gems.”  FH&G

 

Tourmaline, Watermelon Tourmaline, Peridot, Red Garnet, Citrine and Welo Opal. 

Sterling silver wrapped pendants starting at $200.
.

Kory has been working as a silver wire wrapping jewelry artist for over eight years. He draws inspiration from the beaches, forests, and mountains surrounding the Pacific Northwest.

Only the highest quality sterling silver and natural gemstones are used to craft these
creations. Various wires are intentionally wrapped by hand into a whimsical design
creating a variety of coils, braiding and three-dimensional shapes. For this reason, each
and every one of these creations is one of a kind and features unique details.” 
KD

What is the connection with history in Kory’s jewelry, you ask?

A: While in college, he traveled to Paris and fell in love with its architecture. And so, in his work, there are elements of medieval and mystical themes.

Kory integrates opposition from the gemstones with the weaving and wrapping of the pendant to create an incredible piece of jewelry. Now at Fairweather’s through October, November, and December.

“Doug Fir Forest” 12×9 impasto oil by Karen Doyle

About the trees:

Botanist-explorer David Douglas — this tree’s namesake — described it as “one of the most striking and truly graceful objects in nature.” Tree expert Michael Dirr heralded it as “one of the noblest forest trees.” 

Douglas-fir,  scientific genus name Pseudotsuga menziesii,  the most common tree in Oregon, is the most crucial conifer in the state because of its ecological and economic significance. The Oregon legislature recognized this when it designated Douglas-fir the official state tree in 1936. 

Douglas-fir grows in various mixed conifer and hardwood forests in Oregon, from sea level to 5,000 feet elevation. The species has some ability to germinate and grow in the shade of other species and eventually replace them, but Douglas-firs prefer sunlight and mineral soil. Because of their immense size and thick bark, more giant trees can survive wildfire and reseed themselves in many burned-over areas.

The Oregon Champion Douglas-fir is 11.6 feet in diameter and 329 feet tall. Maximum heights can reach well over 300 feet, and diameters can reach 15 to 18 feet. Douglas-fir in the Pacific Northwest ranks as the second tallest tree species in the world behind the coastal redwoods in Southern Oregon and Northern California. When Douglas firs grow in dense forests, they self-prune their lower branches so the conical crown starts many stories above the ground. Commonly living to be at least 500 years of age, the oldest trees can be more than 1,500 years old. 

As a versatile timber tree, Douglas-fir has few rivals. No other tree in the world produces more wood products for human use. It’s strong, relatively dense wood produces large timber beams, boards, railroad ties, plywood, and wood fiber for paper manufacture. It is used for reforestation along the Pacific coast. Its seeds are produced first at the age of about 25 years and in large crops every 5 to 7 years.

“Roseate” rosy impressionistic 30×24 oil by Karen Doyle 

As its sound might suggest, roseate has to do with “rosy.” Anything that’s roseate is rose colored or pinkish. It’s often used in the term “roseate glow,” typically to describe a sunset.

About wild roses:

Roses first appeared on Earth around the time dinosaurs went extinct, 60 to 70 million years ago.
Fossil records indicate roses grew in Oregon during the Oligocene Epoch, 32 million years ago. 
There are three native rose species in the Inland Pacific Northwest: baldhip rose, Nootka rose, and Woods’ rose. Native Oregon roses are wild flowering shrubs providing total spectrum pollen for bees, bird nesting places, and small mammals seclusion. Their fruits or hips are tasty treats for wildlife and a powerhouse of essential human antioxidants. 

 The wild rose is the National Floral Emblem of the United States as the symbol of life, love, and devotion.

“Blue View” and “Ocean View” abstract oils by Nick Brakel

Expressionist landscapes for THIS PLACE, Fairweather’s July exhibition

Through the years, Nick Brakel has participated in various shows at the Fairweather Gallery, first as an emerging artist to watch in 2013, in a group show with Jan Shield, Bev Drew Kindley, Paul Brent, and Rosemary Klein, and in collaboration with The Wetlands Conservancy and partners Ode to the Tides, a 2019 traveling state-wide art exhibition highlighting the ecological and economic value of near-shore coastal habitats. 

In all of my art, and perhaps particularly in my landscapes, I am looking to express the vibrancy and spirit of nature. 

I am very inspired by the art of Van Gogh, Edward Munch, Egon Schiele, Gustave Klimt, Pierre Bonnard, and many, many others. Particularly the approaches of Schiele and Klimt have been of interest to me
lately. They both push the bounds of expressionist painting within a prescribed and well-defined
form. So, it creates this inherent tension between mark-making and almost abstraction
versus the accurately portrayed landscape/portrait/ or still life. This has always been of great interest
to me.

Creating tension between abstraction and form. How far can you push one without losing the
other? I am also very much a colorist when it comes to art. Vibrant colors are essential to me
and are a massive part of the work of all artists I referenced. The works created for this show are all
oil paintings with a slight amount of mixed media.

I started my BFA at The College of Visual Arts in St. Paul, MN. I left after my foundational studies to
focus on landscape painting on the North Shore of Lake Superior. I found my way into Nursing and
eventually finished my BFA at The University of Wisconsin Superior.

Upon moving to Portland, I participated in The Print Arts Northwest Emerging Printmakers Residency. I also interned at Atelier Meridian Printmaking Studio for several years. I am currently in school at PCC and taking Reiki Next Step  training while continuing to pursue my art.”

Rise and Shine 12 x 12 pastel painting of ocean waves

Rise and Shine 12 x 12 pastel by Gretha Lindwood

12 x 12 en Plein air pastel painting on the ridge off Ribera Rd, for the Quickdraw during the May 2022 Carmel Art Festival, fog over the scene, various wildflowers along the footpath, rocks to the far right

“And, then the Clouds Rolled In” en Plein air pastel painting by Gretha Lindwood

Fifty of the top en Plein air artists in America painted in Devendorf Park for a juried painting competition in the Quickdraw, a 2-hour event where the participating artists completed a painting, and frame it while a LIVE audience watched them during the Carmel Art Festival in May, 2022.

By painting in the traditional en Plein air style and by using an impressionistic touch, my landscapes invite the viewer into the scene. These landscapes can bring to mind  the feel of soft mist from a foggy morning on your cheek, and the taste of a salty ocean breeze on your lips. Crisp, refreshing, and vivid are words that have been used to describe my paintings

 Gretha Lindwood

ARTIST STATEMENT 

Intrigued by the challenge of painting varied landscapes such as undulating fields of grass, clouds, and water in a convincing manner, I have chosen buttery soft pastels on sandpaper as my materials. The use of vibrant color and strong design are hallmarks of my work which I developed during my career as an illustrator and graphic designer. 

As a lifelong resident of the Pacific Northwest, I cherish our unique landscapes honed by water and time and delight in capturing their beauty in the lush colors of pastels to share with the viewer.

“Golden” dragonfly watercolor by Lieta Gatteri

 

“Bronze” dragonfly watercolor by Lieta Gratteri

I have been painting for ten years and love bringing living items into my art. I enjoy making them come alive and trying to capture a lot of texture on my paper. Watercolor has its own mind sometimes; it is fun trying to control it to what I am looking for.”  Lieta Gratteri

I love to work with color. Making things glow is a passion for me. Layering colors get a charming effect. –Lieta

Grace note. Lieta will often add a pleasant surprise to her watercolors to create a mixed-media work of art. See above to discover the “thank you” postage stamp, a repurposed item from a Fairweather note she received recently.

I work out of my studio at home and have a huge group of art and gardening friends that bring so much joy to my life. I am a resident artist of Fairweather Gallery in Seaside and a member of the Oregon Society of Artists.”

Lieta’s trips to the nurseries in the area are her playground and she enjoys sharing finds with her many, many gardening friends. Indeed, it seems as if the energy of a busy day filled with seeing all the choices available during the growing season calls to the artist. Truly, Lieta just wants everyone to have fun in their own garden and have success with all things growing. Surely, being in nature is enjoyable and relaxes her mind. –FH&G review.

Neal Maine lectures at the Fairweather Gallery.

And, too,  the Seaside ospreys have returned to their nest located above Broadway Park for 2022. Neal Maine predicted the return date by researching their data from his decades-long log book.

The ospreys have returned. We repeat, the ospreys have returned.
Tune in to watch as they lay their eggs in the next month. –Necancum Watershed Council
 

Data from tracking studies revealed that adult males head north from wintering in South America before females, that Ospreys adhere to certain migration flyways, and that breeding pairs don’t migrate or overwinter together. In the spring in North America male and female ospreys work together to raise chicks and cannot do it on their own.  Osprey is a single species in its own genus. The osprey species is at least 11 million years old…

After a thirty-year career as an award-winning biology teacher at Seaside High School, Neal Maine became the first executive director of NCLC, which he co-founded in 1986. Since his retirement from the land trust in 2010, he has pursued his passion for nature photography through PacificLight Images, a partnership with Michael Wing, his grandson, dedicated to raising awareness of coastal ecology and the wildlife with whom we share the region’s estuaries, freshwater wetlands, and forests. 

Biologist, naturalist, and photographer Neal Maine:

THE COASTAL EDGE

In cycles older than time, forces deep within the earth push apart tectonic plates, creating and expanding the oceans whose waters are pushed and pulled by the sun and moon, cooled and heated and calmed and stirred to fury by the skies. Ocean collides with the continent, shattering the shore into a thousand facets: bare rock monoliths, vast expanses of sand, saltwater pools that drown, then drain, then soak, then drain. And in that shattering, life asserts itself, creeping and burrowing and swimming and perching in particular niches, flora, and fauna whose collective presence defines THE COASTAL EDGE.

NATURE’S TRAILS

A limpet creeps up a wave-washed rock, following the rise of the tide. A salmon follows ancient watershed trails to its natal stream. An otter travels along its living trap line for crabs to crayfish upside creeks in the estuary. A vole tunnels into the soft sponge on the forest floor. In the treetops, in the forest, across the land, in the water, and in the air, all become a living slate for NATURE’S TRAILS. This tracery of interwoven trails is unsigned but indelible to generations of travelers.

THE NEXT FRONTIER, OUR OWN BACKYARD

Humans: We take pictures, walks, deep breaths, memories, rides on waves, water, and timber in habitats that belonged to other trail makers. We thought we could never catch all the salmon, never cut all the big trees, and never pollute the ocean. In our hubris, we thought we could make our own trails. With renewed humility, we are learning how to share this place, to live together with our partner trail makers. PacificLight Images/ Neal Maine celebrates this partnership as we use our images to inspire others to honor nature’s trails in OUR OWN BACKYARD.

Jan Rimerman, 2022 Botanical Series
Artist/Art Administrator

Visual Art Coordinator Lakewood Center for the Arts

Curator Dee Denton Gallery

Director/Curator Rain Spark Gallery

Director Rock…Paper…Turtle…Art for Wetlands

The botanical works by Jan Rimerman displayed at Fairweather House & Gallery in April for the Life Forms Exhibit are compositionally framed within a graduated Art Nouveau border. The paintings are created with liquid watercolor on heavy watercolor paper and are mounted on birch cradles. The watercolors are sealed with Dorland wax to protect the surface. The series was inspired by Schreiner’s Iris  Gardens in Oregon.

These paintings depart from Jan’s typical charcoal pours with many layers, each revealing something new in the changing light of the day and seasons. Instead of working on the mystical revelation of texture, Rimerman is creating a three-dimensional effect through the composition and use of color and pattern. Returning to some of her early botanical forms seemed fitting for this spring. 

Many years ago, Jan had the opportunity to take a workshop from the Queen’s celebrated watercolorist  Peter Welton in England. She was the only non-professional watercolorist in the class and the only foreigner to boot. It was an extremely taxing experience, but one that taught technique and life lessons. The artworks in the Fairweather House and Gallery  “Life Forms” April 2022 exhibit are delicately patterned with stripes, dots, and unexpected detail as you inspect them.

And, too, for the current times, revisiting Jan Rimerman’s SUNFLOWER Collection with new timely insights written by the artist.

Sunflowers At Dawn

The sunflowers are painted in Rimerman’s typical technique of starting with charcoal pour under-paintings. Adding up to 22 layers of transparent fluid acrylic paint on top of this substrate offers a three-dimensional luminosity.   The most difficult part of the process is waiting for each layer to dry between each application of color and texture. Organic forms are used as stencils to create the initial black and white underpainting; Water and powdered charcoal, the consistency of cinnamon, are applied to the white surface of heavy watercolor paper. When this layer dries the powdered charcoal is sealed onto the paper with a clear gel.  

In the sunflowers paintings, you may discover cedar boughs, sword fern fronds, and/or three turtle petroglyphs hidden beneath the botanical shapes. These are not revealed all at once, but present themselves as the light changes during the day and with the seasons.  By changing your observation angle you may see shapes and currents that were not viewed previously.  The paintings have something new to unfold each time you look at them.” —Jan Rimerman, mixed media artist

Sunflowers At Dusk

Sunflowers are the national flower of Ukraine.  Ukraine produces more sunflower oil than any other country.  The flowers are a powerful symbol of resistance of the Ukrainian people against the invasion by Russia.  The war has disrupted the growing season of this valuable plant which in turn disrupts the global food chain.  Soy and palm oils may fill part of the gap, but this brings another question of sustainable production with farmable land being converted from tropical forests.

Sunflowers are a powerful symbol of hope.  The buds trace the movement of the sun from east to west and the flowers face the rising sun of each new day. We can but hope that they will bloom again soon!” -Jan Rimerman
