Signs of the coming holidays are everywhere in Brookings.
David Galchett is the featured artist at Wright's for November. David's career has been in illustration, but he now focuses more on fine art and uses oils. He was working on a new piece and showed Art Walkers his original sketches and how he develops a painting from a small initial sketch and experiments with color schemes before committing to the final painting.
Pete Chasar, right, interviewed John Gehl at Manley Art Center. John calls himself a "Blacksmith Who Takes Snapshots". After retiring from the farm machinery industry he learned blacksmithing and uses his skills to create unique pieces of art. You can see John Gehl's metal sculpture and photography at Manley Art Center this month. Hours are Monday through Saturday, 11 am to 4 pm.
Artist Tom Moody is known for his award winning paintings, but did you know he also creates masterpieces from recycled wood! This potting bench is one of several pieces by Tom that you can see at Chet's Garden Center. The pieces are being used to display other garden products, but all are available.
Brian Scott Gallery is showing several Star Wars Posters by Drew Struzen.
The poster on the right is Artist Proof No. 1 for the 1977 release of Star Wars. The original poster disappeared for 30 years, and when finally found it was given to George Lucas. Numerous reproductions have sold out and only the Artist's proofs that Drew retained still remain - they are hand numbered and this is Number 1.

Thanks to all the participating venues, artists and musicians!
