Grace notes received the 2017 BEAVER TALES exhibit.


Now that the Beaver Tales Project is officially over, I want to thank you all for helping to make it such a success. Not only did the artists help thousands of people learn to appreciate beavers and the work they do for people and the environment, they contributed a fine collection of original art to the world that will be treasured for many years.

And many thanks also to the sponsors, galleries, and volunteers who tirelessly promoted the exhibits and related events, and to the volunteers who helped pack, unpack, transport, store and hang the beaver art.

The Wetlands Conservancy, North Coast Land Conservancy, Necanicum and Lower Nehalem Watershed Councils were incredible partners, and took full advantage of the opportunity to promote the conservation of beavers and their habitat.


We sold 73 pieces for just under $22,000. I am thinking about what next, and am open to suggestions about projects that include elements of both art and nature. We learned a lot from this one, and would appreciate any feedback you have about how it could have been even better. I’m also happy to help out with other projects that could use some assistance.

Great job! Wow! You must really feel great about this final result. Congratulations! I certainly benefited personally and am happy that Joe and I were able to contribute as a result of the TEAA sale of both paintings plus notes. Outstanding leadership! — Jane McGeehan

I’ve never seen anything run more smoothly from start to finish – it was an amazing undertaking and the scope and quality of artists’ works was truly incredible. And to think we could have so much fun, make a little money, and help beavers all at the same time! Fondly, JoAnn

Ditto, great job! A big THANKS to ALL who put in time & energy for these exhibits! So unique and lovely! We were honored to show & sell, and be involved with nature-conserving people and organizations. And we loved learning more about — and helping — beavers! 🙂 Boni Deal

This has been a really fun show to be involved with. I appreciate the efforts and skills of everyone who helped. You are a rock star!!! –Mary Burgess

I, too, was honored to be part of this show. You and The Wetlands Conservancy crew did an outstanding job of promoting and teaching. Thank you all for your hard work. Jean

Lucky to be included in this show! Many thanks for your hard work & for raising awareness.
Theresa Andreas-O’Leary

I am so happy to pile on my thanks – this was a truly amazing experience, a coupling of arts & science that really spanned our great state in meaningful ways. On behalf of everyone involved at OSU, it was our honor to be included in this, and a true pleasure for me personally to help shape and support it.

I feel a ditto coming on! This Beaver Tales show was amazing, in every way. Bringing together artists and nature lovers, the show’s success clearly is a product of brilliant planning coupled with tireless organization. Thanks to everyone who had a hand in making this happen.
I’m so glad you’re looking to future show ideas! Aquatic could make a good theme… I’m entertaining designs for fish collages 🙂 marbling paper today. Maybe jurying the show next time? With the momentum of this one I can imagine an even greater answer to the call. But hard to improve on perfection! – René Eisenbart

Thank you for your tireless organization and hard work you and your team put in. What an honor to be a part of the show! I’m excited for the next one. 🙂 —Anji Grainger

It was an honor to be in this show. I found entire process interesting and managed so well all along the way. I loved all the information I learned about beavers and their habitat at the Oregon State University opening show. All along the way with all the show moves, everything was so well organized and we were so well informed. Thanks you so much for an exemplary job! –Dee Rommel

I am in awe of what you achieved with this “event” (the word seems inadequate to describe such a multi-faceted undertaking) and how superbly you managed all the logistics. It was an honor and a pleasure to be part of it. Congratulations to everyone who contributed to the success of the Beaver Tales Project. Best wishes from the other Land of the Beaver (aka Canada).–Frances Backhouse, author Once They Were Hats

Your vision and perseverance have been a voice for the beaver with whom we share this world, so glad we spoke up for them and I bet we’ve gained them much more respect with all the work this past year. Thank you! — Mary Moffat

 

 

That’s a wrap! Hold the memories close. Start planning for the next exhibit! –Sara

I’m Jacob,

Owner/Operater of The Victory Barbershop in Seaside. I started my career in Portland back in 2010 starting out in the typical venues like Great Clips and The Barbers. I quickly progressed to The Modern Man and then on to Rooks Traditional. From there we moved to Raymond Wa where I opened a small one chair shop (still working it as well) We’ve always loved the north coast of Oregon and decided this would be a great place for long term goals so we decided to open a 4 chair shop. For now it will be just me but I am actively looking for fresh talent and as I can add some barbers we will be able to open up more days.  Thank you for your interest, I hope to see you soon. You bring the hair I’ll have the whiskey ready to go.

 

We’re open Friday through Monday 10am to 6pm

Walk-ins only and closed the last 3 days of the month.

Blue Bond Studio and Gallery offers painting classes in Seaside

 

Posting an article published in the Seaside Signal by Eve Marx, Dec. 22, 2017

Blue Bond, or Blue as he likes to be called, was born in Louisville, Kentucky. He says he was educated in Tacoma, Washington, but you may detect a bit of Southern charm in his accent. He’s been a professional full time painter since 1967. “I’ve been painting for four decades…
