The Opportunity Quilt will be among the many on display at weekend show.

CRESCENT CITY — Quilters from as far away as Cave Junction will show off their talent with needle, thread and fabric at the Lighthouse Quilt Guild’s biannual show next week.

Behind the Wardrobe: Director, actors share their thoughts on classic story by C. S. Lewis

Lucy (Cierra Yarbrough) walks into the wardrobe, unknowing what she will find a magical kingdom, Narnia, on the other side.

What’s it like to do a family production? What is a family production for that matter? 

I am Karen de Lucca and the director of this year’s family production of “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe,” and the organizer of the summer youth program for Chetco Pelican Players. 

Doing a family production means that the play is cast not just with young actors, but also with parts for their family members, be it backstage or on stage. It means that young actors get to work with older actors, actors of all ages in fact. Together, they form a very powerful team. 


Newcomer shows works at Manley

A dry creekbed in the Ojai Valley of Southern California is the subject of a pastel painting by Theda DeRamus.

Pelican Bay Arts Association (PBAA) has selected Theda DeRamus as featured artist and will display several of her pastel paintings in their Manley Art Center gallery during August.

DeRamus, who grew up in Roseburg, spent most of her life in Southern California. She says, “I have always painted, and after high school, I attended Columbus College of Art And Design in Ohio.” 



Art in the Park: Second festival a crowd pleaser

Sherryl Griffin is flanked by Cilde Grover and Vi Burton after presenting Griffin the best booth award.

Major festivals elsewhere in Curry County had little impact on a small festival in the park over the weekend.

If nothing else, the Festival of Art in Stout Park saw growth over the previous year, not only in the number of vendors, but in the number of visitors.

“We guesstimate 2,500 in attendance, the bulk of it on Saturday,” said Vi Burton, festival organizer for Pelican Bay Arts Association. “The weather was much warmer on Saturday; the sun just didn’t want to come out on Sunday.”

The Pistol River Concert Association presents Betty and the Boy in concert at 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 9, at the Pistol River Friendship Hall, 24252 Carpenterville Road.

Betty Jaeger is a self-taught vocalist and writes a majority of the quintet’s down-tempo and melodramatic tunes which fall into the genres of folk, bluegrass and rock. Her lyrics are replete with imagery of animals and nature, but it’s a fairy tale more in the fashion of Grimm than Disney, with minimalist guitar styling to accompany them, according to a news release.
