Brown bags, art and music

Plein air artist Rob Decker, commonly seen drawing pictures of the scenery at area beaches, comes indoors on Thursdays to show techniques using oil pastels.

Those who worry that socializing over meals is yet another casualty of the increasingly screen-dependent world may find Brian Scott Gallery’s Brown Bag Thursdays a welcome surprise.

From 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. every Thursday, the second floor of the gallery becomes a venue for music, art and socializing. People are encouraged to drop in with their own lunch — hence the “Brown Bag” moniker — and take a break from the work day. The gallery provides snacks, tea and coffee, and has live musicians and artists on hand to entertain guests.

“It’s very low-key,” said John Marshall, guitarist and singer for the four-piece band Spectrum Sounds. Marshall and his wife Dorothy, along with bandmates Rick Weaver and Sharon Guinn, have been playing at Brown Bag Thursdays since they started in the summer, and cover mostly soft rock by bands such as the Eagles, Creedence Clearwater Revival and James Taylor.

Packys: Theater honors its best of 2015

Aaron Axel, who played Gomez, the lead character in “Addams Family,” receives an award from Ariel and Sean Farris during annual Packy awards gala.

Packy Awards for Chetco Pelican Players’ productions in 2015 were evenly split, indicating audiences may have enjoyed all of the plays.

However, it was “Addams Family” that received the award for Best Overall Production, which broke the tie with “The Miracle Worker” in the number of awards received.

“Play On!” and “Little Shop of Horrors” also tied for the number of awards — four each. 


Duo returns to venue

Kate Power and Steve Einhorn will perform in Pistol River Feb. 13.

The Pistol River Concert Association announces that Kate Power and Steve Einhorn will return to the Pistol River Friendship Hall for a performance at 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 13. 

Power and Einhorn have appeared as special guests on Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion.” Power’s song “Travis John” won the grand prize at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas for songs that make a difference.

The sinkhole didn’t stop nearly a thousand hungry citizens from making their way down to the Port of Brookings Harbor for the second annual Crab Festival Saturday. 

“We couldn’t have gotten better luck with our weather,” said Crissy Cooper-Perry, event coordinator for the Port of Brookings Harbor. “I feel for a wintertime event, it was highly successful.”

Many who attended were pleased with the outcome of the event that provided plenty of shelter under large tents set up at the Port of Brookings-Harbor boardwalk.
