Welcome to Seaside First Saturday Art Walk. Starry Night Inn!

Starry Night Inn, 811 1st Ave, Seaside 

An art motel by the sea

One block West of Highway 101, one block north of Oceanway and  one block east of Oceanway. 

And, too, within walking distance (weather permitting)  from Broadway in the Historic Gilbert district of downtown Seaside.

 

Starry Night Inn is a six-room villa located in Seaside, Oregon – a Victorian home with two rooms with private baths, a hostel with three beds and shared bath and three cabins, with fireplaces and kitchenettes. Each room in the motel, including the lobby, dining room, and walls leading up to rooms feature art from nine Portland, Oregon artists. The mood of this motel feels timeless, sophisticated, even elegant but in a slightly bohemian way + there is a sauna! This motel offers artist residencies and the whole property is available for rental for events, retreats, and parties.

 

 

The art at the motel is curated by Chris Haberman. The motel is currently featuring the work of Ace Troy with his Pop art, spray paint style, Ursula Barton’s work inspired by rainy bike rides in PDX, Judy Haas’ colorful acrylic and watercolor work, Oscar Diggs a photo transfer artist, Debra Of The Dead features recycled Day Of The Dead artwork, Lea Barozzi’s work has a beautiful dreamy femme, punk rock vibe. Gary Houston is a poster artist using traditional methods, Tom Healy has a unique eye for nature photography, and Chris Haberman, whose work focuses on people, politics, pop-culture and various forms of media.

 

Art by Ursula Baton.

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.
–Sara Vickerman

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

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.

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
