BALANCING ACT tablescape #2: impasto oils by Leah Kohlenberg, micro oil jellyfish series by Vicky Combs-Snider, wall clock by master wood-worked Stuart Dittbrenner, art glass platters and plates by Christine Downs, landscape mural strike-off by Toni Avery, vintage mouth-blown glass, hand-blown eggplant vegetables, and wood turned candlesticks with Illumne candles.

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.

“The Balance”
Acrylic on wood cradle

MARGA
 

With each coat of paint, whether watercolors, gouache, acrylics, or oil comes depth and motion…it’s exciting and satisfying to see my work evolve from one layer to the next. I love using odd tools to paint with….for instance, Some images in my whimsy collection are painted with a toothpick (I couldn’t find a small enough pallet knife) MARGA

Frankenbunny’s Tea Party (ants included)

Frank N. Bunny’s trying to escape the ants by balancing his tea cake on his head. His tea party is not going as planned. And the ants keep coming.”  Marga

My art training comes from watching and experimenting and then doing it repeatedly, exposing a little more of me, Marga, with every attempt. I love the movement of things… whether it’s the hair or feather on a bird’s head or the drooping of a flower’s leaf…I want to make my painting live and breathe. I read Bedtime Stories in Marga’s World for eight delightful years on KMUN radio. I wrote my own children’s story. This was stimulating and a great way to fuel my imagination for my art. MARGA

Soft celadon ceramics by Marcia Hudson, clay artist.

Iconic coastal patterns of gulls, sea stacks, clouds, and waves.

Signed. One-of-a-kind.

Vases, bowls, platters, and mugs.

Q: What is the difference between a ceramicist and a potter, you ask?

A: Both ceramicists and potters work with the same material: they go through the same process of wedging the clay, forming, firing, and glazing. So, it is a matter of preference how you want to call yourself if you work with clay. A ceramicist, a potter, a clay artist, a ceramic designer.

Q: What is a female potter called, you might ask?

A: A female pottery maker is called a potteress (plural potteresses)

Q: How did the name potter originate?

A: The name potter came from the Old French word of poterie.

Q: What is the favorite glaze in pottery?

A: Celadon is an all-time favorite glaze in pottery. It is a mint-gray-green color in ceramics, developed about the 2nd century C.E. Today, as it has done for thousands of years, celadon blends well in spaces with surrounding natural tones for a calming, earthy feel.

This color found in pottery and glaze typically appears gray-green in hue. The color of celadon owes much to the raw materials—specifically, the presence of iron in the clay and iron oxide, manganese oxide, and quartz particles in the glaze—as well as to the firing conditions inside the kiln.

Just in from Marica Husdon. Celadon ware. Functional and calming ceramics.  

Sharing a favorite quote from the artist.
Life is precious, life is fragile, and life is short.  Live each day with kindness and mindfulness. 

Marica Hudson is a member of the Artists in the Clay Guild of the Cascades (CGC). The Guild shares a passion for clay with each other and the community. They aim to promote creative self-expression in clay, share knowledge and experience, and facilitate an appreciation of handmade pottery and ceramics.

“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.” 

Nick Brakel

Neal Maine, wildlife and habitat photographer, with Nick Brakel, abstract artist, sharing good news and art information at the opening reception of THIS PLACE, Fairweather’s July 2022 exhibition.

My past subject matter was often nature based, focusing on the creatures inhabiting the natural world with birds and  ocean creatures, generally with an emphasis on climate change’s possible effect on these creatures.”  NB

Just announced: Neal Maine and Michael Wing’s photographs are part of a permanent art display that features selected work by 40 artists in the Seaside Convention Center. 

We are thrilled to share that 14 artworks have been chosen from the gallery for the new public art collection in the Seaside Civic and Convention Center.”  FH&G

At the opening reception for the Fairweather exhibition THIS PLACE, en plein air artist Barbara Bacon Folawn is pictured with her art. In the background are musicians Chelsea LaFey and Richard Thomasian and artist Paul Brent Painting Seaside LIVE ™ during the July 2 Seaside First Saturday Art Walk. Also, in the image are artworks by Melissa Jander, Lieta Gratteri, Tedd Chilless, and Peg Wells.

 

I find it satisfying to visit the quiet rural areas of the Willamette Valley or the Oregon coast with pencil and paintbrush to capture the light and colors of our natural environment.  When I paint on location, I lose myself in the moment and use all my senses to learn about and interpret what I see in front of me.  I treasure the process and results of en plein air painting, which often inspires larger works in the studio.  As I look back, I remember very clearly the feeling of the day, the light, the fragrances, the sounds, and the colors of each scene that I captured.”  Barbara Bacon Folawn

Impressionistic oil painter Victoria Brooks happily engaged with Seaside First Saturday Art Walk patrons at the opening reception of THIS PLACE on July 2, 2022, at Fairweather Gallery. Victoria Brooks recently celebrated her 12th anniversary of offering Seaside Painting LIVE ™ events at Fairweather’s. In the background are more artworks by Victoria Brooks and Bev Drew Kindley.

 

 It is all about the light and how it illuminates the landscape, figure, or portrait. I am always chasing the light and trying to capture that effect in oils. Most people don’t realize how much of painting is done in the mind first. I love the vibrant energy and painterly quality of impressionism.  I love oil painting because of the texture and richness it has.”  Victoria Brooks

Painter Paul Brent explored the language of Seaside Painting LIVE ™ in a landscape of the Seaside shore and Tillamook Head. He started with a blank canvas and completed a quick finish painting during the opening reception of THIS PLACE at Fairweather’s on July 2, 2022.  In the background are sculptures by Chas Martin, glass by Fedor Zubanov, and a significant buoy oil painting by Brent.

 

 If the meaning of art is to impart emotion visually then I think the message of all of my art is to create the emotions of relaxation. This is the appeal of my artwork as it often takes one away to a fond memory of a beach or the simple pleasure of a summertime moment.. Most of the time, I have a mental image of the piece before I begin to work. I am continually comparing the painting to the image I have in my head as I go along. I often comment that the painting I like best is the one I just finished.”  Paul Brent

Bev Drew Kindley builds her impressionistic paintings from memories of idyllic places. The painter entertained Seaside First Saturday Art Walk patrons with her gentle insights on the philosophy of art.

Observing and painting is a meditation, an active appreciation, a way to connect intuitively with nature.  When I turn to the peace of beaches, the inner strength found in the shadows of the mind, and the spirited persistence of flickering light on water, I feel refreshed exhilarated, enriched.  I absorb a scene, focus on the mood, simplify the important features and begin to visualize a way to suggest
feelings, ideas,and create a sense of time in a place.”  Bev Drew Kindley

Textile painter Cicely Gilman is wearing her art and showing her framed art. The pattern was inspired by personal guardian angels found within the mind and heart for THIS PLACE, an exhibition, on display through July 25 at Fairweather’s. In the background are artworks by Bev Drew Kindley and Victoria Brooks, art glass by Christine Downs, and pottery by Marilyn Cohn.

Cicely Gilman fills lively painterly silk with a mix of colorful interactions, literally building her images from photo collages, painted silk, and found materials. Often sewn together by hand and machine, leaving delicate ridges and tracks, the construction is repeated until the eye can swing from edge to edge in a blur of color.  Her work evokes the energy of the inner workings of the mind, zigzaging back and forth from histories past, present, and possibly in the future.”    Artist review/ FH&G 

Neal Maine, pictured with his most recent photograph, “The Old becomes the New,” offered a unique habitat lecture at Fairweather’s on July 2, 2022, during the opening reception of THIS PLACE. He spoke about the importance of the nurse logs, fallen wind-blown trees that naturally shelter new forest seedlings. Also shown is art by JoAnn Pari-Mueller and furniture by Stuaru Dittbrenner.

Neal Maine was a biology teacher for 30 years with the Seaside School District. After retiring from teaching, he served on the founding board for the North Coast Land Conservancy and as its director for 12 years. Maine currently spends most of his time prowling the coastal edge as a wildlife photographer and helping others appreciate “living in paradise” on the North Coast through presentations and exhibits.

 

A nurse log is a fallen, decaying tree upon which other trees are growing. The saplings growing on a nurse log take nutrients from it, feeding upon it long before it has had time to rot and turn to soil. Nurse logs also provide a safe haven from soil fungi that can harm seedlings.

 
Decaying logs retain moisture and nutrients that benefit new plant growth and support soil organisms. A nurse log serves as a ground cover, reducing soil erosion and preventing animals from over-browsing seedlings.”     The Old Becomes the New takeaway.

“Magic Moments” by Barbara Bacon Folawn

16 x 20  original acrylic framed in beech wood

When I paint on location, I lose myself in the moment and use all my senses to learn about and interpret what I see in front of me. The result is a fresh and essential rendering, an impression from the heart and a moment in time. Whether I am using a small sketchbook, a canvas or watercolor paper, I treasure the process and results of plein air painting, which often inspires larger works in the studio.”  BBF
