Admiring the wall of surfing photos, surfer Bix Wier told photographer Mark Gibbs and giclee artist Joe Tonini, "All the surfers in town are talking about this wall."

The surfing photos, taken by Gibbs and reproduced in giclee by Tonini, cover the south wall at Signatures Gallery and was part of the March Second Saturday Art Walk.

The surfers in the photographs are all local business people, builders, carpenters, roofers, flooring contractors, et tal. All photos were taken at Sporthaven Beach, many from the south jetty.

All viewers can appreciate the beauty of the ocean and be impressed with the obvious skill of the surfers. However, those who are surfers themselves will probably be most interested in the surfing style displayed.

Tonini said viewers are challenged to identify the surfers in the photos.

He explained that the wall is arranged to allow the photographs to be changed at any time, and that the giclees will hold their color indefinitely. "These giclees will still be around for your grandchildren," he promised.

Signatures Gallery is at 519 Chetco Ave., Brookings.

  • Citi to hire 100 bankers in Asia, eyes more business from smaller clients
    Citigroup plans to hire as many as 100 bankers in a renewed push into Asia-Pacific commercial banking, following in rival HSBC's footsteps with a strategy that focuses on selling smaller corporate clients a wider range of products. Global banks like Citi and HSBC are now concentrating on small to medium-sized clients due to a dwindling number of $10 billion-plus IPOs from Chinese state-owned companies - deals which had sustained investment banks in the region over the last decade. The increase in headcount, which represents a 10 percent boost for Citi's Asia-Pacific commercial banking unit, is aimed at offering firms with annual sales of between $10 million and $500 million additional services such as foreign exchange and cash management. "This is not about adding hundreds of new clients in the region, but winning more wallet share from commercial banking clients who have cross-border business by providing them with more loans, FX, cash and trade products," Citi's Asia-Pacific commercial banking head Ashish Bajaj said in an interview.

  • Consumer Reports wants Toyota to recall older Camry hybrids
    An influential consumer magazine on Monday called on Toyota Motor Corp to recall about 177,500 older Camry hybrid sedans to address potential power brake defects. Consumer Reports, which many consumers use when studying what vehicles to buy, said the Japanese automaker's decision to call for a service campaign or a warranty extension on two different problems covering cars from model years 2007 to 2011 does not go far enough. Under a service campaign, an automaker repairs cars as they are brought back to dealers by consumers. "Consumer Reports believes that Toyota should recall these cars," the magazine said.
