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.

  • Obama targets foreign profits with tax proposal, Republicans skeptical
    President Barack Obama's fiscal 2016 budget will seek new taxes on trillions of dollars in profits accumulated overseas by U.S. companies, and a new approach to taxing foreign profits in the future, but Republicans were skeptical of the plan on Sunday. Reviving a long-running debate about corporate tax avoidance, Obama will target a loophole that lets companies pay no tax on earnings held abroad, the White House said. In his budget plan to be unveiled on Monday, Obama will call for a one-time, 14 percent tax on an estimated $2.1 trillion in profits piled up abroad over the years by multinationals such as General Electric (GE.N), Microsoft (MSFT.O), Pfizer Inc (PFE.N) and Apple Inc (AAPL.O). He will also seek to impose a 19 percent tax on U.S. companies' future foreign earnings, the White House said.
