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.”

An amazing, rather surreal underwater beaver photo and a great story about how the photographer got it.

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!

Neal Maine beaver ecology back story.

 

Neal Maine, scientist and wildlife photographer welcomed Beaver enthusiasts before presented a lecture on Beaver Ecology on  May 25th in the Beaver Tales Exhibition Pop-up Gallery at 608 Broadway, located in the historic Gilbert District of downtown Seaside.

Neal Maine explained how beavers engineer wetlands on the North Coast, and how people can learn to take advantage of their environmental benefits while protecting property from flooding and other damage.

 

 

“Beavers, though woefully misunderstood, actually create and sustain wetlands that aid in resuscitating wetland and riparian stream habitats.  They play a central role in shaping our future as we prepare for transformations that a warming and changing climate may bring.” 

Neal Maine offers a one-to-one talk about the importance of embracing the amazing work that beavers do to create habitats for many, many creatures and critters.  Maine’s  vast experience  in studying and photographing wildlife enables him to tell fascinating stories about these industrious little rodents that most people never see.

 

Beaver enthusiasts gathered in the Pop-Up Beaver Tales Exhibition space to listen to Neal Maine speak.

 

 

The purpose of the ecology lecture highlighted the importance of beavers in creating wetlands and other aquatic habitat.

“Beavers play a central role in shaping our future as we prepare for transformations that a warming and changing climate may bring.”

 

Beaver enthusiasts  discussed about how to work with beaver to conserve and restore natural systems after Neal Maine’s lecture.
