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.

  • Asian shares up on Greek rescue hopes, dollar shines
    Asian shares edged up on Thursday on vague hopes of a rescue deal for Greece while the dollar was at the helm in currency markets on expectations that the U.S. Federal Reserve will raise rates later this year. Japan's Nikkei (.N225) rose 0.6 percent while MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up 0.1 percent, with South Korean shares (.KS11) leading the gain with a rise of 0.5 percent.
  • Japan April retail sales rebound, ease pressure on BOJ
    Japan's retail sales rebounded modestly in the year to April after three straight months of falls, bolstering the central bank's case that consumer spending is reviving to underpin a steady economic recovery. The data adds to signs of improvement in consumer confidence and eases pressure on the Bank of Japan to expand its massive stimulus program in the near term, analysts say. Retail sales in April rose 5.0 percent from a year earlier, trade ministry data showed on Thursday, slightly below a median market forecast for a 5.4 percent increase.
  • EU officials dismiss Greek statement on aid agreement being drafted
    Greece's government on Wednesday said it is starting to draft an agreement with creditors that would pave the way for aid, but European officials quickly dismissed that as wishful thinking. Greece and its European and International Monetary Fund lenders have been locked in tortuous negotiations on a reforms agreement for four months without a breakthrough in sight. A new round of talks begin on Wednesday in Brussels, and a Greek government official said the two sides would start drafting a technical-level agreement there, along the lines of Athens' longtime demands for no wage or pension cuts and a lower target for a primary budget surplus.
