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.

  • Ferdinand Piech resigns, ending an era at Volkswagen
    HAMBURG/FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Ferdinand Piech, a towering figure at Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE) for more than two decades, resigned as its chairman on Saturday after losing a showdown he had provoked with Chief Executive Martin Winterkorn, ending an era at the iconic German carmaker. Piech, the 78-year-old grandson of the inventor of the Volkswagen Beetle Ferdinand Porsche, had previously seen off other executives who crossed him, including his own hand-picked successor as CEO, Bernd Pischetsrieder. "The members of the steering committee came to a consensus that, in the light of the past weeks, the mutual trust necessary for successful cooperation was no longer there," the six-member panel said in a statement after another meeting on Saturday.
  • Abercrombie & Fitch to ditch 'sexualized marketing': Washington Post
    Retail clothing chain Abercrombie & Fitch will end by July its "sexualized marketing," after years of blanketing its web sites, store windows and shopping bags with photos of half-naked men, according to the Washington Post. It will also stop using shirtless models or lifeguards at events and store openings for both the Abercrombie & Fitch and the Hollister brands, the newspaper reported late Friday, citing an announcement. Abercrombie & Fitch had come under fire in recent years for its strict dress code and sexualized marketing, and has been in a Supreme Court case for denying a Muslim woman a job because of her head scarf. The changes come as the company faces slumping sales, as teens increasingly move away from the brand, according to the Washington Post.
  • Deutsche faces tough task paring back retail, investment banking
    Deutsche Bank (DBKGn.DE) faces a long and costly battle, analysts say, to sell Postbank (DPBGn.DE) and pare investment banking, the new strategic goals it outlined late on Friday. Deutsche will face an especially difficult challenge in selling off Postbank without having to post losses. “We're worried about jobs at Postbank,” Carsten Schneider, finance expert and deputy SPD parliamentary floor leader, told Reuters. Postbank could fetch close to 3.6 billion euros ($3.9 billion) if it sells for a multiple of 0.8 times a book value of 4.5 billion euros, according to analysts' calculations.
