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.

  • Greece votes in referendum with future in euro in doubt
    Greece voted on Sunday on whether to accept more austerity in exchange for international aid, in a high-stakes referendum likely to determine whether it leaves the euro-currency area after seven years of economic pain. Staged against a backdrop of shuttered banks and threats of financial apocalypse, the vote looked too close to call and may not produce the clear mandate for negotiations that Athens? creditors seek. Greeks are split on whether to accept an offer by creditors that Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras calls a "humiliation" and is urging people to reject.
  • China curbs IPOs, enlists brokers in all-out bid to end market rout
    BEIJING/SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China froze share offers and set up a market-stabilization fund on Saturday, the Wall Street Journal said, as Beijing intensified efforts to pull stock markets out of a nose-dive that is threatening the world's second-largest economy. Beijing's reported suspension of initial public offers (IPOs) came a few hours after extraordinary announcements by major brokers and fund managers, which collectively pledged to invest at least $19 billion of their own money into stocks. China's government, regulators and financial institutions are now waging a concerted campaign to prop up the nation's two main share markets, amid fears that a meltdown would rock the financial system and inflict heavy losses across an economy where annual growth is already running at a 24-year low.
  • Rubbing along with robots tackles Abe's double dilemma
    Factory worker Satomi Iwata has new co-workers, a troupe of humanoid automata that are helping to address two of Japan's most pressing concerns - a shortage of labor and a need for growth. The 19 robots, which cost her employer Glory Ltd about 7.4 million yen ($60,000) each, have eye-like sensors and two arms that assemble made-to-order change dispensers alongside their human colleagues in a factory employing 370. Glory is in the vanguard as Japanese firms ramp up spending on robotics and automation, responding at last to premier Shinzo Abe's efforts to stimulate the economy and end two decades of stagnation and deflation.
