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.

  • Total CEO de Margerie killed in Moscow as jet hits snow plow
    MOSCOW/PARIS (Reuters) - Christophe de Margerie, the charismatic and outspoken chief executive of the French oil company Total (TOTF.PA), was killed when his private jet hit a snow plow as it was taking off from Moscow's Vnukovo airport on Monday night. His death leaves a void at the top of one of the world's biggest listed oil firms at a difficult time for the industry as oil prices fall and state-backed competitors keep them out of some of the best oil exploration territory. De Margerie, 63, was a strong opponent of Western economic sanctions against Russia over its actions in Ukraine, and had been attending a meeting on foreign investment with around 30 other foreign executives at Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev's country residence in Gorki near Moscow. The crash occurred around midnight Moscow time as his Dassault Falcon was taking off for Paris in poor visibility.

Known as "The Big Mustache" for his bushy, gray mustache, de Margerie, 63, was the most charismatic and outspoken oil executive of his generation who cultivated relationships with leaders across Africa, the Middle East and Europe. An opponent of Western economic sanctions against Russia, the Frenchman was close to President Vladimir Putin - who said on Tuesday that "Russia had lost a true friend".
