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.
