Second Street News Release

Second Street Gallery in Old Town Bandon is showcasing local

artists through its “Gift of Art” Christmas program

which runs weekends until Christmas. The program allows

patrons to learn about the art form and watch as it is being

created utilizing a wide variety of media.

On Friday, November 25th & Saturday, November 26th, Lauren

Scott will be demonstrating the craft of creating pine

needle baskets. Taught the craft by a Native American Miwok

Indian weaver years ago, Lauren enjoys working with her

hands to create something that is both beautiful and

functional. “My baskets reflect the traditional, ancient

applications of the Northwestern Indians. Each stitch is

carefully placed for strength and beauty,” states Lauren.

Joining Lauren is Jewel Knapp, who will be demonstrating and

creating unique bags of all shapes and sizes made from a

variety of fabrics. Jewel utilizes gorgeous remnants of

upholstery and drapery fabrics to create wonderfully unique

purses and accessory bags. Jewel says “Transforming

remnants into unique bags is magic-and that is what art is

– the sense of experiencing something magic”.

Second Street Gallery is located in the heart Old Town

Bandon and is open from 10AM to 5PM daily. For additional

information about the gallery, visit or call 345-4133.
