Shaping Your Watercolors ~ Carolyn Gates @ The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita
Jun 11 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will host a two-day “Shaping Your Watercolors : Composition, Color & Concepts for Beginners” class Saturday, June 10 and Sunday, June 11, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Led by artist Carolyn Gates of Eugene, students will learn basic concepts of creating compositions, color and color mixing, and painting techniques.

The concepts will be applied to painting from life and painting from photographs. The class is designed for adults 18 and older, beginning level. Some drawing skills are preferred, but not necessary.

Gates studied watercolor with Satoko Matouji at Lane Community College in Eugene as well as with premier watercolorists Carol Carter and Judy Morris.

She has won numerous commissions to paint in watercolor and colored pencil. Gates has had several shows around Oregon and has taught a beginning watercolor class at The Hoffman before. She says she enjoys helping people find their own voice of expression by sharing concepts that are fundamental to producing strong paintings.

“I investigate beauty, shape and color and in doing so, hope to uncover the interplay between the ordinary and the extraordinary.”

Gates lives with her husband and their cat, Nibbles. She is a member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon. For more information and to view her work, go to her website at www.cmgates.com.

Tuition will be $100, with an additional $4 materials fee for paper.

Strengthen Your Paintings Class offered on July 8-9, 2017 @ The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita
Jun 11 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Strengthen Your Paintings Class offered on July 8-9, 2017

HoffmanThe Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will offer a two-day “Strengthen Your Paintings: The Foundation of Composition and Value” workshop the weekend of July 8-9, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

Led by Eugene-based Carolyn Gates, a frequent Hoffman Center instructor, the class is designed for students age 18 and up. Beginning level is fine. Some drawing skills preferred, but not necessary.

Tuition for the workshop will be $100, with a possible materials fee. The class will be limited to 10 students.

“Strengthen Your Paintings” will focus on concepts that are foundational to the art. “Day 1 will cover the elements of good composition. These are the bones of any painting,” said Gates. “Day 2 will explore value, the lights and darks, which are the muscle behind what makes a painting really work.”

“This class will include both lecture and hands on application of the concepts,” she added. “It is geared to the beginning student who wants to delve a little deeper. Examples and demonstrations will emphasize watercolor, but other mediums can also benefit from this class.”

Gates studied studio art at Mira Costa College in Oceanside, Calif., and watercolor painting at Lane Community College in Eugene, Ore. She won a commission in 2004 to paint the Stations of the Cross for a permanent installation at St. Bede’s Episcopal Church outside Portland.

She has been awarded several private commissions in watercolor and colored pencil and is a member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon. Interested persons can register for “Strengthen Your Paintings” at the Hoffman Center for the Arts blog (http://hoffmanblog.org/ ). Deadline for registration is Saturday, June 24.

Landscapes as Perception @ Cannon Beach Gallery
Jun 17 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Join the Cannon Beach Arts Association for an opening reception of the Landscapes as Perception show, on Saturday, June 17th, 2017 from 6 – 8 pm at the Cannon Beach Gallery located at 1064 S. Hemlock St. The exhibit will explore landscapes from three artists: Sidonie Caron, Christopher Perry, and J. Scott Wilson which will be on display from June 14 to July 16th. Guests are encouraged to attend the artist talk on Sunday, June 18th, starting at 11 am, also located at the gallery.

The exhibit features three distinct landscape styles and mediums interpreting the horizon, time, and space in unique ways. All three artists approach the landscape in way that honors the Oregon coast, with expansive perspectives that draw the viewer into the deep space where sea and air meet. The color and texture of the show will please all.

unnamedLandscapes
Left to right, Caron, Perry, Wilson.

Caron has previously shown at the Gallery and works largely in oils. Her work hints at Fauvism in that it captures the vibrant colors of the land and sea at dusk. Perry works in both oil and kiln glass and is a new artist at the Association. His abstract kiln-glass work allows the audience to interpret the moment in time which the landscape is depicting. Wilson is a local artist and owns Polaris Gallery in Manzanita. Working in oil on canvas, his landscapes perfectly capture the height of the sky as the storms wait patiently to roll in.

The opening is family friendly and there will be complimentary refreshments served thanks to Cannon Beach Fresh Foods, the Wine Shack, and Bald Eagle Coffee. The show is generously sponsored by the Cannon Beach Hotel.

Marga Stanley at Seaside First Saturday Art Walk @ Fairweather House and Gallery
Oct 7 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Foghorn Leghorn by Marga.

My art training comes from watching and experimenting and then doing it all over again, exposing a little more of me, Marga, with every attempt.

With each coat of paint, whether it’s watercolors, gouache, acrylics and oil comes depth and motion…it’s exciting and satisfying to see my work evolve from one layer to the next. I love using odd tools to paint with….for instance, the main images on my mini whimsy collection, were painted with a toothpick (I couldn’t find a small enough pallet knife).

I love the movement of things… whether it’s the hair or feather on a bird’s head or the drooping of a flower’s leaf…I want to make my painting live and breathe.

While living in the Caribbean I founded an annual fine arts fair, featuring over 20 very talented and diverse artists.

I draw on a regular basis with an exceptional group of local artists and am one of the founding members of Tempo Gallery, an arts collective, in Astoria.

My art has been shown in Canada, British West Indies, and the US, with collectors in OR, NY, NJ, MO, CA, FL, WA and Canada and Japan.– Hugs, Marga.

SAVE THE DATE AND TIME!

Celebrating 13 years in 2017, the next Seaside First Saturday Art Walk, will be held on October 7, 5-7: pm.

The event is free and is all about seeing and selling art in the sponsoring galleries and boutiques located between Holladay and Broadway in the historic Gilbert District of downtown Seaside. Complimentary parking  is on the corner of Holladay and Oceanway.

Fairweather House and Gallery, 612 Broadway

Opening reception for SHADOWS, an exhibition that focuses on the interplay of light and dark through selected art that expresses time as the fall season progresses. New artwork by Northwest artists Diane Copenhaver, Gregory Bell, Janet Hickox, Penelope Culbertson, Whelsey Whelp, Ashley Howarth, Lisa Wiser, Karen E. Lewis,  Tamara Johnson and Marga Stanley will be featured.

Naturalist, biologist and scientist  Neal Maine will speak at 6: pm about the autumn ecology of the local habitat.

And, too, during the opening reception of  SHADOWS on October 7th there will be a paddle auction  of selected Neal Maine images  to benefit the  WCNC.

LIVE music by Shirley 88.

LIVE scribing by calligraphy artist Penelope Culbertson.

Special guest of honor will be Flynn,  “the handsomest Kestrel around and one of the  WCNC Ambassador Birds”  will be on hand celebrating the opening of Fairweather’s new exhibition SHADOWS!

Q: What is the WCNC, you ask?

A: Wildlife Center of the North Coast (WCNC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit Oregon corporation, that specializes in wildlife rehabilitation of resident and migratory birds, mammals and other wild creatures naturally occurring in Oregon.

WCNC provides primary services to communities along 167 miles of coastline in Oregon and southwest Washington offering humane care and professional medical treatment to sick, injured, orphaned and displaced native wildlife with the goal of releasing healthy wild animals back into their appropriate habitat; offers quality conservation + environmental education programs concerning local wildlife, their ecosystems, and the human impact on these systems and individuals.

NEWS RELEASE
Mixed media CLASS

Hoffman Center Offers Mixed media Painting Class

The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will offer a one-day “Mixed Media Acrylic Painting & Collage” workshop Saturday, February 3, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Mixed media

Led by Astoria artist Patti Breidenbach, a former junior high and high school art teacher, the class is designed for students age 18 and up. Beginning to professional artists are welcome.

Tuition for the workshop will be $80, plus a $20 materials fee. The class will be limited to 10 students.

“Mixed Media Acrylic Painting & Collage” will focus on creating art using paint, collage, stenciling and fabric. Participants will be able to apply these methods and techniques to future works of art. Students will leave with a finished 8×8 piece of art.

“The goals are to introduce another way to interpret personal thoughts and personal environment while lifting the perceived limitations of materials,” said Breidenbach.

“Ergo the freedom of feeling there is no wrong way,” she added.

Although all materials are provided, students are encouraged to bring any materials that they want to use such as their own acrylic paints, brushes, stencils, or fabric.

Breidenbach, who has a BFA in Jewelry Design, is also a certified high school teacher. She is the former Executive Director of the Granville Arts Council in Oxford, North Carolina. She enjoys teaching oils, watercolor, ceramics, drawing, paper making and book binding, and basket weaving.

Hoffman Center Offers Botanical Drawing

The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will offer five Botanical Drawing classes throughout 2018, starting Saturday February 10. The first workshop will be Botanical Sketchbook, followed by spring, summer, fall and winter sessions.

Led by Dorota Haber-Lehigh, the series of workshops will focus on drawing from nature while being inspired by changing seasons.  The workshops can be taken independently or as a series. Each workshop will have a different seasonal focus while emphasizing sketching from observation. Students will experiment with new techniques, study botanical accuracy and the learn the importance of self-expression. The series is designed for students 18 and up, and all skill levels are welcome.

The first workshop will focus on keeping a botanical sketchbook. In this workshop, students will engage in creative, meditative, and structured exercises to dive into this practice. In this foundation class, students will learn sketching, measuring, tonal/shading, application, color blending and layering, and composition ideas. Using pen, graphite and color pencils for sketching and combining and adding text will give students the tools to embrace their personal style and use a sketchbook to record their botanical journey. By the end of the first class, students will complete several entries in their sketchbooks and will walk away with ideas on how to continue throughout the year.

Tuition is $45 per session, or $150.00 for all five sessions. ($30/per session).

Classes will be held February 10, from 1:00 to 4:00pm; and April 28, August 25, October 20, and December 1, from Noon to 4:00pm.

Haber-Lehigh’s art and teaching explore the ephemeral beauty of nature, magic of native plants and human connection with plants. She holds degrees in Art, Indigenous Studies, Spanish and Education. She authored two ethnobotanical coloring books. Her workshops are engaging, inclusive and fun. They are designed for all levels and abilities. She is currently working on a Diploma in Botanical Illustration through the Society of Botanical Artists in London. She has taught students whose age ranged from 10 to 90+, and of all artistic abilities in public schools, community colleges and art centers.

CANNON BEACH — The Palette Puddlers’ annual Memorial Day weekend art show and sale will be held at the Cannon Beach Chamber of Commerce, 207 N. Spruce St., 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, May 25; Saturday, May 26; and Sunday, May 27.

We will also be open 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, May 28. Admission and refreshments are free.

In addition, our artists will provide demonstrations of their art styles throughout the weekend. It’s possible you will find something “just created” to purchase.

The Palette Puddlers are a group of professional women artists, many of whom have painted together for years. Every Monday, rain or shine, they paint in a Cannon Beach locale while providing mutual support, critiquing artistic efforts, sharing the joy of creativity and just having a great time.

Over Memorial Day Weekend, they create an art gallery at the Visitor’s Center to share and sell their original work.

Members Susan Bish, Judith Fredrikson, Mary Ann Gantenbein, Suzanne King, Jo Pomeroy-Crockett, Linda Gebhart, Debbie Loyd, Barbara Thacker and Jane McGeehan will show and sell original works of art, including watercolor, acrylics, mixed media and pastels.

Cards and print reproductions of their work are also available, as well as the bargain bin and bargain rack where framed and unframed paintings are available for a minimal price. Some of these artists show their work in other venues in the Northwest, and their paintings adorn homes throughout the state and nation.

Most of the Palette Puddlers display their work at trailsendart.org. If you are interested in a specific artist’s work, go to the website, then click on “artists” on the left hand menu. That will take you to the artist list.

But better yet, come to Cannon Beach over Memorial Day weekend, meet the artists, watch them work and check out these reasonably priced paintings.

CANNON BEACH — The Palette Puddlers’ annual Memorial Day weekend art show and sale will be held at the Cannon Beach Chamber of Commerce, 207 N. Spruce St., 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, May 25; Saturday, May 26; and Sunday, May 27.

We will also be open 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, May 28. Admission and refreshments are free.

In addition, our artists will provide demonstrations of their art styles throughout the weekend. It’s possible you will find something “just created” to purchase.

The Palette Puddlers are a group of professional women artists, many of whom have painted together for years. Every Monday, rain or shine, they paint in a Cannon Beach locale while providing mutual support, critiquing artistic efforts, sharing the joy of creativity and just having a great time.

Over Memorial Day Weekend, they create an art gallery at the Visitor’s Center to share and sell their original work.

Members Susan Bish, Judith Fredrikson, Mary Ann Gantenbein, Suzanne King, Jo Pomeroy-Crockett, Linda Gebhart, Debbie Loyd, Barbara Thacker and Jane McGeehan will show and sell original works of art, including watercolor, acrylics, mixed media and pastels.

Cards and print reproductions of their work are also available, as well as the bargain bin and bargain rack where framed and unframed paintings are available for a minimal price. Some of these artists show their work in other venues in the Northwest, and their paintings adorn homes throughout the state and nation.

Most of the Palette Puddlers display their work at trailsendart.org. If you are interested in a specific artist’s work, go to the website, then click on “artists” on the left hand menu. That will take you to the artist list.

But better yet, come to Cannon Beach over Memorial Day weekend, meet the artists, watch them work and check out these reasonably priced paintings.

CLASS: Painting Watercolor Florals
Ikebana
May 2, 2018

The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will host a two-day workshop, “Painting Watercolor Florals: Inspired by the Japanese Art of Ikebana. The workshop is Saturday and Sunday, June 16 and 17. Led by artist Carolyn Gates of Eugene, this class will use beautiful, live Ikebana arrangements as subject matter.

Ikebana (literally translated) means ‘flowers kept alive.’ Arrangements appear simple, yet natural. But, they are complex and involve a symmetry of carefully planned relationships.

Students will learn more about composition and creating form when painting still life from traditional Japanese Ikebana arrangements. Training the eye to see both the complexity and simplicity of the Ikebana arrangements will enhance the skills of beginning to advanced watercolor painters.

This workshop is designed for adults 18 and older. Some drawing skills are preferred, but not necessary.

Gates currently teaches watercolor at Maude Kerns Art Center in Eugene, Oregon, and has also taught several workshops at the Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita, Oregon. She enjoys teaching and is inspired by the work her student’s do. Her focus is teaching basic concepts, while encouraging each student to find their own voice. “After every class and workshop, I want to go back to my studio and paint with the freedom and joy I see in my student’s work.”

She has won numerous commissions to paint in watercolor and colored pencil and has had several shows around Oregon.

‘I investigate beauty, shape and color and in doing so, hope to uncover the interplay between the ordinary and the extraordinary.”

Gates is a member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon. For more information and to view her work, go to her website at www.cgates.com.

The two-day workshop on Saturday and Sunday, June 16 & 17, is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day with a break for lunch. Tuition is $100.

Students must also bring materials from the materials list that can be found on the Hoffman Center’s Blog post for this class at http://hoffmanarts.org/events/watercolor-florals/

Hoffman Center Offers Botanical Drawing

Botanical

The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will offer five Botanical Drawing classes throughout 2018, starting Saturday February 10. The first workshop will be Botanical Sketchbook, followed by spring, summer, fall and winter sessions.

Led by Dorota Haber-Lehigh, the series of workshops will focus on drawing from nature while being inspired by changing seasons.  The workshops can be taken independently or as a series. Each workshop will have a different seasonal focus while emphasizing sketching from observation. Students will experiment with new techniques, study botanical accuracy and the learn the importance of self-expression. The series is designed for students 18 and up, and all skill levels are welcome.

The first workshop will focus on keeping a botanical sketchbook. In this workshop, students will engage in creative, meditative, and structured exercises to dive into this practice. In this foundation class, students will learn sketching, measuring, tonal/shading, application, color blending and layering, and composition ideas. Using pen, graphite and color pencils for sketching and combining and adding text will give students the tools to embrace their personal style and use a sketchbook to record their botanical journey. By the end of the first class, students will complete several entries in their sketchbooks and will walk away with ideas on how to continue throughout the year.

Tuition is $45 per session, or $150.00 for all five sessions. ($30/per session).

Classes will be held February 10, from 1:00 to 4:00pm; and April 28, August 25, October 20, and December 1, from Noon to 4:00pm.

Haber-Lehigh’s art and teaching explore the ephemeral beauty of nature, magic of native plants and human connection with plants. She holds degrees in Art, Indigenous Studies, Spanish and Education. She authored two ethnobotanical coloring books. Her workshops are engaging, inclusive and fun. They are designed for all levels and abilities. She is currently working on a Diploma in Botanical Illustration through the Society of Botanical Artists in London.

McVarish gallery will host “America is Beautiful” @ McVarish Gallery
Sep 8 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

This month McVarish gallery will host “America is Beautiful

a provocative series of paintings and installation by Astoria artist, Morrison Pierce.  The 30 piece show looks back at World War II to illustrate the tragedy of war, drawing imagery  from photos of real people and children who lived and died in effects of the biggest and bloodiest conflict in history.

McVarish gallery

Morrison painted this series of scenes in his unique expressionist style, playing ironically with candy colors associated with childhood and innocence, while capturing the sadness and devastation of war. Within the show is a story of two brothers for whom a sad fate is determined when one is sent to war. Works starting on the left entrance area of the gallery represent innocence and childhood under the foreshadow of the imminent war leading into the main exhibit room where the imagery became far more devastating as the conflict rages. He juxtaposes innocence and the presence of evil in a thought provoking way. Its a theme he’s been returning to in various mediums over 20 years. While it’s a reflection on the past it’s also meant to reflect the potential for history to repeat itself in our present political climate.

In Morrison’s words, “‘America is Beautiful’ is a return to the past events in history that can remind us of how far we have come as a society,

or how quickly we could find ourselves right back where we started. It’s a sad reminder of where we have been and how families can be ripped apart just for the color of skin… Love defeats hate and these paintings, although dark in content, seem to show there is light at the end of the tunnel”

   McVarish gallery

It’s certainly not an easy subject, but a noble one to undertake. “How to uncover evil with a mirror for all to see is never an easy task, but one worth the time, if anything is going to change.”

Morrison has been painting and traveling for over twenty years and it shows in his fluidity of ideas and execution. Originally a film major, the cinematic element is still very present in his work and presentation. It can be seen in the way his show is designed to tell a story, even bringing back certain characters in more than on piece. Another unusual characteristic is the linear order of the show.  The story begins on the left side of the gallery and then walks the viewer through the scenes. The final  piece  attempts to show light through darkness, bringing not a happy ending, but maybe an optimistic one. Then adding more drama to the spectacle, the show will also include an installation fraught with morbid symbolism.

 His decision to come to Astoria in 2017 was based on a coin flip. Having traveled to most other cities in the US, this was one he had not seen yet. This will be his first show in Astoria, which he now calls home. “I like the tight knit community of working artists, musicians and free thinkers… and the moody rainy winters.” He brings interesting and vibrant addition to the wealth of art here and has more theatric shows planned at McVarish Gallery in the coming years.

“America is Beautiful” opens with a reception from 5:00- 8:30pm Sat. September 8th and runs until November 11th at McVarish Gallery 160 Tenth Street.  mcvarishgallery.com
