Maggie Coleman, who arrived in Brookings just three months ago with plans to open her third gallery, has issued an invitation to a grand opening celebration, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., March 7, at Studio 101 Art & Jewelry Gallery, 1101 Chetco Ave.

Coleman said that, after a bit of investigation, she and her husband chose Brookings when they decided to leave Arizona and come back to Oregon to be near family in Springfield and Portland.

“It was the weather that brought me to the Wild Rivers Coast,” Coleman said. “It has the best weather, and we love the ocean, and I found really nice people here.”

Coleman, who has owned and operated two galleries in Oregon and one in Arizona, said that her new gallery reflects her interest in Native American culture, wild life, jewelry, and beads.

She creates fashion jewelry and beaded pieces and will offer classes in beading.

Paintings offered include giclee prints on canvas, custom framed prints, and some originals, work by local residents as well as other well-known artists.

Coleman, whose work has been featured in papers and magazines, and shown in galleries throughout the southwestern states, has been a jewelry designer for 30 years.

“I work with sterling silver and semi-precious stones,” Coleman said. “I make necklaces, earrings and bracelets that adorn the body and lift the spirit. My jewelry is one of a kind, creative, imaginative and award-winning.”

In addition to art and jewelry, Coleman’s gallery offers a number of gift and home décor items.

For those who enjoy beading, or who would like to learn, Coleman offers classes in beading, as well as jewelry making. Her next jewelry class, Bracelet Making 101, will be held 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 28, with pre-registration required by Feb. 24.

She suggested, “Stop in and ask me when the next beading class will be held.”

The gallery is filled with a variety of beauty and art. Coleman invites the public to visit from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday to browse and pick up an invitation that lists special discounts on jewelry, gifts and paintings being offered during the grand opening celebration.

The place to be March 7 is Studio 101 Art & Jewelry Gallery on Chetco Avenue to meet Maggie Coleman and enjoy hors d’oeuvres, tea, and coffee, chat with participating artists and enjoy interesting demonstrations.
