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.

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
