And, so, too, the Beaver Tales Art Exhibit and Sale in the Pop-Up Gallery, located at 608 Broadway, in Seaside closed at the end of May. Between the Fairweather Gallery and the Pop-Up Beaver Tales Gallery for May the Beaver Tales traveling exhibit wrapped up the most successful showing to date, selling 25 pieces of beaver art, more than any other venue in 2017 so far!
The beaver art was distributed between the Fairweather Gallery and in an adjacent pop-up gallery, courtesy of The Gilbert Block Building owners. In addition, outstanding contributions were made the beaver enthusiasts, patrons and artists, many had quite a drive to get to Seaside, yet arrived to donate gallery time in the pop-up space. Beaver artists did art demonstrations. Indeed, sales usually picked up when there were interesting things happening.
“The success of the Seaside show is likely attributable to the support of the three conservation organizational sponsors, consistent and effective promotion by Denise Fairweather, extensive local media coverage, and, of course, special appearances of Beaver artists.” –Sara Vickerman, Beaver Tales curator.

And, now more new new info about beavers and the work they do for the wetlands…
The Mighty Beaver
An amazing, rather surreal underwater beaver photo and a great story about how the photographer got it.
A great illustration of the benefits of working with beavers to restore wetlands and support wetland-dependent species. https://www.langleytimes.com/…/green-beat-leave-it-to-beav…/

There has been a lot of beaver activity this spring, here is a great video from a neighbor at our Nyberg Preserve! He seems unfazed by the sounds of traffic!
