Seaside — Celebrating its ninth year in 2015, Fairweather House and Garden, located at 612 Broadway, becomes Fairweather House and Gallery. With the name re-invention, Fairweather announces its first solo exhibit for the new spring season.

Throughout Friday, March 27, Fairweather opens a solo exhibit for local abstract artist Gayle H. Seely with bold, bright art. Complimentary champagne mimosas and sweet pastries will be served from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Isaac Newton, who divided the color spectrum into seven named colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet), decided that the color-wheel should echo the seven-note musical scale. Through Seely’s art there is “such liveliness in bright colors, offered, perhaps, as a true stimulant to the imagination. Through her art and story, she has the power to directly influence the soul,” said Fairweather owner Denise Fairweather.

As a gallery, Fairweather will continue to reflect the eclectic collection of significant and emerging Northwest artists and will strive to serve the historic Gilbert District as a vortex of creativity, inspiration and commence. Fairweather offers a wide array of painting, sculpture, photography and other media from classic realism to contemporary and conceptual art.

“I create art for the love of seeing and feeling colors and shapes coming through my emotions. In expressing my internal dialogue in a concrete way, I create fresh perspectives otherwise hidden,” said Seely in her artist statement. “As a native Oregonian, my eyes are open to the natural beauty and ever-changing light surrounding me. My style developed over years of simple but profound outdoor and interior moments, expressed in an honest, straightforward and flowing way.”
