Writers' forum starts Monday

JUNEAU - Writers of all styles and levels can learn about the creative process, inspiration, work methods and getting published at a four-part writers' forum beginning Monday at the downtown library.

The free series is sponsored by the Friends of The Juneau Public Libraries and will feature professional and experienced writers discussing their craft. Monday's presentation from 7 to 8:30 p.m. features authors of children's books. The March 30 program will be adult fiction authors, April 13 will be poets, and April 27 will be adult nonfiction writers.

A panel of three or four writers will participate in each session, and author Bridget Smith will facilitate.

Artists Clair, Roys and Stoll open exhibit

JUNEAU - Juneau artists Rick Clair, Rob Roys and John Stoll will present nearly 40 new paintings at an opening reception from 4-8 p.m. Friday at Portfolio Arts.

``They are kind of a combination of expressionism and surrealism,'' said gallery co-owner Barry Connolly.

Connolly said Roys grew up in Juneau, and Stoll was the first artist he featured when he opened the gallery in 1994.

``John and Rob have been at it a long time,'' said fellow artist Rick Clair. ``I really enjoy their work.''

Portfolio Arts will feature the artists' work through March 28.
