GALLERY SHOWING SURF ART ATTRACTS 400

The August Second Saturday Art Walk at Signatures Gallery and at all of the 10 other venues was an overwhelming success.

At Signatures, located at the corner of Chetco Avenue and Willow Street, more than 400 people were introduced to surfing as works of art. Visitors came from Hawaii, Seattle, Portland, Redding, Los Angeles and San Francisco to see this historical exhibit and to discover the art and artists featured in other galleries during the popular Art Walk. Each of the galleries on the walk experienced record crowds.

On display at Signatures was the print of the "Ultimate Challenge" an image of Greg Noll in his black and white trunks standing with his yellow board on the shore of the Pipeline surf at Oahu, Hawaiian Islands, in 1964. Also on display was the image of the history-making famous wave at Makaha. On loan from the Heritage Surf Museum for the art walk were the two actual surfboards depicted in those paintings. Other historical images were also on display.

Greg and Laura Noll, with their son Jed, autographed 99 first-edition copies of the book "The Art of the Surfboard" by Drew Kampion. The history of the surfboard from the times of ancient Hawaiians to present day collectors' boards are detailed. All six of Ken Auster's paintings of famous Greg Noll surfing images on display at the gallery and many historical photographs from the Greg Noll Foundation are included.

"The Art of Greg Noll" will be at Signatures Gallery through the month of August. Autographed copies of the full color coffeetable book are still available at the gallery. Signatures is located at 519 Chetco Avenue. Hours are Tuesdays to Saturday from noon to 4 pm. For information call (541) 469-1085.

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
