STUDIO HOSTS GRAND OPENING FEST TODAY

By Ellen Babin

Pilot staff writer

Angelwings Studio, 1007A Chetco Ave., is planning a grand opening – with food, fun and gifts – starting at 11 a.m. today (Feb. 24).

Each of the first 10 people through the door will receive a hand-blown Egyptian vial, just a small sample of what the large business in a little space is all about.

Angelwings Studio will carry a mixed myriad of retail items, from Peruvian jewelry, incense and mosaic mirrors.

But there's more; the studio is designed for "modern day crafters," according to its owner, Dora Cichantek.

And there's another twist 5 percent of the money made will be donated to the American Cancer Society.

Cichantek saw a need for a place where people of all ages could come and have fun while "bringing out their talents."

She will offer ceramic painting, acrylic painting and china painting; she has a kiln to fire artwork done in the studio or in the home.

Classes in china painting, clay building, stained glass, oil painting, candle making and more will be offered, as will craft projects for children.

"Just drop your child off and enjoy a day of shopping, or just relax on the beach while your child enjoys and experiences art," the owner says. In addition, people can bring in their "masterpieces" to the studio to be sold on consignment.

Angelwings also has birthday packages with everything provided, including refreshments and ceramics to paint.

There will be weekly and other workshops; people are welcome to suggest workshop topics.

Because of her personal contact with cancer, Cichantek is dedicating the open house to Laura Read, Community Service Manager for the American Cancer Society in Crescent City.

In addition to a friend just diagnosed with breast cancer, Cichantek's step-grandson has a cancerous tumor in his head.

In addition to the kindness of her business neighbor, Shane Alcorn, Cichantek sings the praises of Laura Read, "who has done so much for my loved ones."

Angelwings Studio will be open Wednesdays from 1 to 5 p.m. and Thursdays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Fore information, phone (541) 412 3672 or (866) 934-3672.

  • Europe won't let Athens go under, says Greek minister
    Greece's finance minister accused creditors of trying to "terrorize" Greeks into accepting austerity, warning Europe stood to lose as much as Athens if the country is forced out of the euro after a referendum on Sunday on bailout terms. After a week in which Greece defaulted, shuttered its banks and began rationing cash, Greeks vote on Sunday on whether to accept or reject tough conditions sought by international creditors to extend a lending lifeline that has kept the debt-stricken country afloat. The left-wing government is urging a 'No' vote, saying Greece's European partners are bluffing when they warn that would mean a Greek departure from Europe's single currency, with unforeseeable consequences for Greece, Europe and the global economy.
  • 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.
  • A Greek challenge for 'Mr Europe' Juncker
    It's sultry early July and an emotional Jean-Claude Juncker is on the stump, calling for a 'Yes' vote in a referendum on which he says hangs the future of Europe - and his own career. "A 'Yes' ... would have a significance ... well beyond Europe," he tells voters. This was 2005 and Juncker was addressing his fellow Luxemburgers.
