City Centennial Planning

 

The City of Reedsport turns 100 year’s old in 2019! Plans for a year-long celebration are underway. The Reedsport’s Main Street and Centennial Planning groups are inviting community members to attend an open house on August 9, 2018 at 6 pm at the Waterfront Restaurant (back dining room) to talk about the City’s Centennial Celebration planning.

 

Ideas and suggestions are needed as to what type of events and activities should be included in the year-long celebration. Many ideas have been suggested already, such as: adopting a “Centennial” tree or rhododendron, a calendar with historical photos and all the celebration event dates, commissioning a special mural, installing a river of painted rocks, organizing historical displays in business windows and an historical walk to view them, an Earth Day clean-up event, and possibly having various tournaments—disc golf, pickleball. All of the ideas mentioned so far will be on display at the open house on August 9th for discussion and consideration.

 

Bring your ideas and suggestions or come and voice your opinion about the ideas already mentioned. What do you think will make 2019 a memorable year of celebration for all of Reedsport? Pizza will be on hand to keep the creative juices flowing.

 Coastal Douglas Arts & Business Alliance (CDABA) is partnering with Chris and Sheryl Rush, owners of the Rogue River Coffee Co., to host an open house and artist and music reception on Saturday, November 18, 2017 (Noon to 3 pm). Stop by to meet the owners at 1891 Winchester Ave (corner of Highway 101 and 19th), Reedsport, OR  97467, and check out their coffee, pastries, and lunch menu items.

 

The artist reception will feature various artists, including Gary M. Herd, Kraken Studios;

Gary Herd is a self-taught "Urban Landscape" painter, known for his colorful, bold outlined paintings. When Gary is not in the studio creating art, he's painting on a much larger scale with his mural business Kraken Studios. Herd’s newest mural "Salmon History" is on the dike wall in Reedsport.

 

Donna Lee, started art school right out of high school. Donna started as an illustrator, turned into a photographer to photograph her art work and fell in love. Now after 30 years behind the camera, Donna has picked up color pencils and has also picked up scratchboard art.

 

Reggie Oflock, was born and raised in California. Reggie retired in Grants Pass and later moved to Florence Oregon with her husband and 2 dogs, Bruiser and Shadow. Reggie is a self-taught artist and also enjoys reading, beach walks, fishing, and world travelling.

 

Susanne Weston has been an artist for over 50 years, starting in watercolors and moving to acrylics, mostly mountain landscapes, but also portrait work. Susanne began 3-dimensional art on wood and stone about four years ago. Susanne’s images of trees are painted in copper, gold, silver, gunmetal, and multiple colors to coordinate with the rock or wood she uses for her background.) (Top)
