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

Our story:

The story of our small family business starts here. Searching for adventure and a better way of life our quest led to the oil fields of North Dakota. Some may consider North Dakota 2010 the modern-day gold rush and everything you may have heard to be true. North Dakota also happens to be the place Lewis and Clark would meet Sacagawea. In 1804 she would then lead them on an incredible journey across the Rockies to the Pacific Ocean. After the oil fields slowed to the point of stopping we were once again on a quest. This time we would follow the Lewis and Clark trail to Astoria, Oregon. Always fascinated by the history of our surroundings, we would absorb all the information we could about this famous coastal town. Astoria would be the place Lewis and Clark traveled to and found the mouth of the Columbia and the Pacific Ocean.


In 1806 Lewis and Clark would head back on the trail they had blazed, and give their findings to Thomas Jefferson. Thomas had a friend in John Jacob Astor, who already had a very successful fur trading business. Between the two, they devised a plan to send two parties to the Pacific Ocean to establish a fort and trading post. A ship would sling shot around South America to the mouth of the Columbia and an overland party to settle and claim this portion of land as the United States. That ship was named the Tonquin. Just like the Tonquin, we want to establish a global trade with the greatest hiking gear and apparel on the market. With technology, innovation, and creative thinkers striving for excellence, Tonquin Trading will be the premiere active lifestyle connection.
