Art Walk Pages
2nd Saturday Artwalk Photos
Santa Claus was at the Manley Art Center, supposedly so the
kids could have their picture taken with him. But it seems
to me, living on the North Pole, he forgot what kids look
like. And also ............ he don't look like a Saint to
me at all
Sara Broderick started the Art Walk at Manley with an
artist demonstration. The big mirror over her head makes
it easy for the viewers to follow her work.
The Nuncrackers at Dewey's Diggs. Dewey's Diggs, named after
PILOT founder Dewey Akers, is the new name of the PILOT's
conference room on Art Walk Alley. To celebrate the official
opening of this "Art Walk Gallery," devoted to
photo art, the nuns came over from the Pelican Players latest
production "Nuncrackers" and performed a few snippets
of this musical comedy.
Following the Nuncrackers,
former PILOT owner Dick Keusink gave a short speech on the
symbiosis of the people of Brookings and their newspaper.
His wife, Polly, read a limerick she had composed for the
Horst Wolf, one of the
founders of the Brookings Art Walk, added a few words
thanking the PILOT for its continuing support of the Art
Walk. He pointed out that employees of the PILOT not only
report about the Art Walk, but they also participate as
artists and musicians. "They have thoroughly infiltrated
One of those infiltrators is Bill Schlichting, who goes
to every Art Walk with camera around his neck. For November,
he is the Artist of the Month in Dewey's Diggs. His photos
were mounted on the walls around the audience.
The program ended with the
Limericists under Lynn Guild (on the right), another PILOT
employee, reciting their newest writings. In addition to
being the Limerick Queen, Lynn also was the driving force
earlier this year on getting the alley behind the PILOT
named Art Walk Alley - officially - by the City, with street
signs installed and all the rest of it. Lynn also convinced
Charlie Kocher, PILOT publisher, to donate Dewey's Diggs
as a new venue for Art Walkers.
In the audience were the
other two other co-founders of the Art Walk, Brian Scott
(2nd from right) and Dale Wells (3rd from right).
Midway through the Art Walk,
as usual at 5:30, we had a reading at Words & Pictures.
This month the reader was Carol Crow, who read from her
own works. Carol is President of the Brookings Toastmasters.
In the library gallery, the
four featured artists talked about their art. Here we see
Gold Beach artist Alexandra Eyer (left) and Brookings artist
Pete Chasar (right), who also coordinated this month's exhibit.
And afterwards the participating
Art Walk musicians got together to have a little party of
their own, to relax after three hours of playing for the
Art Walkers. And what did they do? Play some more. Here
we see Lon Goddard, who played at Wright's Frame Shop, presenting
his latest creation to an audience of critical peers.
And here we see Aura Wright, Lon's partner in crime.This
is all for today. We could only report on a few of the
Steve didn't have the time
to hit all venues, especially the outlying ones, and I
played music in the CAVE ON ART WALK ALLEY, next to the
PILOT. But I saw Nola Range walking around with a camera
taking photos. So I suggest you go to her website (www.wildriverscoastart.com)
and see what she has to show-and-tell you. And if we are
lucky, Bill Schlichting may put a few of his shots with
words in the PILOT too.
So long until the next Art Walk on 13 December,
