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.

  • 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.
