Dennis and Susan Brown, with help from Ken Roberts, are working feverishly to meet their estimated opening date for Brookings newest gallery, Pieces of Time. The Browns, who opened their Pieces of Time Gallery in Gold Beach in 2006, have been so successful that they decided to expand into Brookings.

Their target date for the opening is the first week in December. "We want to be open for the December Second Saturday Art Walk," Susan said. "We'll be adding equipment as it comes in," she added.

The Browns, who came to Gold Beach from Tonopah, Nev., have had 20 years experience in art gallery and related businesses, including art displays in all media, photography, outdoor art, custom matting and framing, digital transfer, media cards, CDs, and any kind of reprints. "And, we're doing a lot of work on slide show presentations, as well as portraits," Dennis said.

Roberts, who has worked a lot with photography and has management experience in the San Francisco Bay area, will be managing the Brookings gallery. He said he is looking forward to working with the wide variety of arts in the gallery. "I was looking for something a little more creative," he said about responding to an ad for this new career.

Susan said, "We're taking over the downstairs, too, and will be doing a lot of online auction trading assistance down there. It's been very successful in Gold Beach, but we're running out of room."

Indicating their dedication to having the gallery ready by early December, the trio continued to prepare the wall panels for installation as they talked.

The new gallery is located at 509 Chetco Ave., next door to the Curry Coastal Pilot. The telephone number is (541) 469-7900. For information, visit http://www.goldbeachcreations.com.

  • U.S. job growth cools, unemployment rate rises
    U.S. job growth slowed a bit in July and the unemployment rate unexpectedly rose, pointing to slack in the labor market that could give the Federal Reserve room to keep interest rates low for a while. Nonfarm payrolls increased 209,000 last month after surging by 298,000 in June, the Labor Department said on Friday. Although job growth was below expectations, July marked the sixth straight month employment expanded by more than 200,000, a signal of strength last seen in 1997. The one tenth of a percentage point increase in the unemployment rate to 6.2 percent came as more people entered the labor market, an indication of confidence in job prospects.
  • S&P 500 posts biggest weekly decline since 2012
    U.S. stocks ended lower for a second day and the S&P 500 posted its biggest weekly decline since 2012 on Friday as concerns over Argentina's default continued to dog sentiment. Data showing U.S. job growth slowed in July and the unemployment rate unexpectedly rose suggested the Federal Reserve has room to keep interest rates low for a while. The jobs growth, which came in below economists' forecasts, relieved some investors worried about how soon the Fed could bump up interest rates after data on Thursday showed U.S. labor costs recorded their biggest gain in more than 5-1/2 years in the second quarter. A U.S. judge on Friday criticized Argentina's decision to default and ordered negotiations between the country and holdout investors to continue.
