The Wetlands Conservancy presents Ode to the Tides

Seaside Oregon

To celebrate the aesthetic and ecological significance of Oregon’s estuaries and tide pools, The Wetlands Conservancy has collaborated with the Clatsop County Cultural Coalition, Oregon Sea Grant, and Institute for Natural Resources to host the Ode to Tides art exhibit and sale. The exhibit, first shown at Oregon State University through May, arrives in Seaside through June.

The exhibit opens on June 1 at two locations in Seaside.

Fairweather House and Gallery, 612 Broadway Street and The Art-in-Loft Gallery at Beach Books 616 Broadway Street located in the Historic Gilbert District of downtown Seaside.

The traveling exhibit includes artwork of all kinds, from paintings to fiber, wood, stone, glass and ceramics. With regional and local artists displaying their work, the exhibit and sale bring together a multitude of styles and creativity.

The exhibit will feature juried art for purchase. A portion of the sale of each piece of art will support The Wetlands Conservancy’s program to conserve Oregon’s Coastal estuaries.

The exhibit focuses on the plants, animals, fish, land formations and the magic of estuaries and tide pools, the rich mixing zones where freshwater from the land meets salt water from the sea. This blend creates a unique environment with abundant and diverse life. Estuaries gather nutrients from both land and sea, forming an ecosystem that contains more life per square inch than the richest Midwest farmland.  Oregon’s 22 major estuaries are ecologically essential for many fish and wildlife species, including salmon, herring, flounder, crab, oysters, clams, wading birds, ducks, and otters, providing habitat for reproduction, rearing, resting and foraging.

The exhibit will be on view in Seaside through June 30.

IMPRESSIONS OF FRANCE exhibition by Paul Brent.

The Gilbert Block Building, located on the corner of Broadway and Holladay, announces the opening of a new exhibit of watercolors by Paul Brent titled “Impressions of France” for the Seaside First Saturday Art Walk September 1, 5 :pm to 7 :pm.

Avery Loschen and Will Perkins, owners of the Gilbert Block Building will open Brent’s exhibit at its Pop-Up location at 604 Broadway, two doors west of the Fairweather Gallery permanent location.

Paul Brent will be showing new watercolors completed on a recent trip to France.

The new works were painted in the month of April and feature scenes of Paris, the Normandy Coast and the villages and châteaux of the Loire Valley.

 

Architecture, landscape, market scenes and spring flowers are all included in the works in the exhibition.

 

 

While many American are enthralled by a trip to France, artist Paul Brent turned his infatuation into art when he took his watercolors paints and paper with him and painted on site and at the inns where he and his wife stayed on their trip.

 

 

The subtle colors of the building materials and the natural features of the landscapes contrast to the vivid fields of flowering crops featuring vivid yellows and skies of ultramarine blue.

Limestone cliffs of Normandy reflect the towering parapets of castles and cathedrals in watercolors that reflect the national romance of the Impressionists.

 

Come visit with Paul Brent about this experience of his second year in a Pop-Up Studio on Broadway in the Gilbert Block Building. Sponsored by the Fairweather House and Gallery.

Starry Inn May featured artist: Raven I. Lloyd

Her recent work is inspired by negative spaces. In a rare moment last winter when we were covered in snow, Raven says “specifically the snow-covered branches on bushes and trees and the spaces created within the structure of the plants.”  

 

“The theme of Spaces-in-Between carried over to thoughts on breath, time, notes in music, ocean waves and stars in the night sky.  All the empty spaces in-between something tangible influenced by creative process to produce this body of work.”   

 

 

 

“We couldn’t help but notice that the negative space also looks like constellations in the sky. Maybe is is just because we are the Starry Night Inn and we see stars in everything and everyone.”  —Jen and Chris

Beavers Tales Art Exhibit and Sale travels to Astoria and…

 

 

Selected pieces at Fairweather Gallery, located at 612 Broadway,  through July, in a designated display of beaver art.

 Please visit http://www.fairweatherhouseandgallery.com for more info.

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.

 

Q: WHERE IN THE WORLD IS BEAVER TALES TRAVELING TO NEXT, YOU ASK?

 

A: 25 pieces of beaver art go to the Astoria Art Loft for display through June and July. The exhibit opens on June 10 for a pre-Art Walk event from 2-5. Seaside/ Gearhart  naturalist, scientist and biologist  Neal Maine speaks at 3.

In August, most of the remaining pieces go to Nehalem for the month.

In September, a limited number go to the Zoo.

“Thank you again for being a part of this unique and exciting project. Incredibly, its only half over! Have a great summer.”
