Janeen Vick asked her students to paint dinosaurs for a class project. The result merited a show, which you can see during the entire month of April at Wright's. Janeen's After School Art Classes at Wright's will continue through April. They meet Tuesday and Wednesday from 3 to 5 pm. Age 7 and up. $10 per class. (Family discount is half price for a second child).
If you haven't visited the Gallery at Wright's lately be sure to stop by. You'll see works by Jay Mosby, Dale Wells, Sara Broderick, Sandy Bonney, Christina Olsen, Len and Violet Burton, Frank Gustafson, and many more local artists.
Pick a card - no, turn them around first - Christina Olsen dealt cards at Brian Scott Gallery for the Art Walk Polker game. Art Walkers picked a card at each venue, hoping for a winning hand by the end of the day.
A Wild Bird and Backyard General Store features the work of numerous local artists - the foreground display is by Brookings artists Len and Violet Burton and in the left background the whimsical work of Gold Beach artist Todd Steele.
Giraffes on a Raft are "serious" entertainers!
Shirley Hyatt and John Boye at A Wild Bird and Backyard General Store before Shirley was surrounded by an eager crowd of Polker Players hoping to win a prize.
The crowd finally settled down and Shirley identified the polker winners who received prizes from A Wild Bird and Backyard General Store. (See the gorgeous quilt in the upper left corner - this one was made by the the Azalea Quilters Guild and raffle tickets are available at A Wild Bird and Backyard General Store - the winning ticket will be drawn at the end of the Azalea Festival Quilt Show on May 26 at Kalmiopsis School).
As our poker hands were clearly not going to win a wooden nickle, we crossed the street for a sure winner - dinner at Panchos.
