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.”

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!
