Artist returns to redwood country

Laura Wiens will return to Del Norte County from Hawaii this week for a showing of her paintings. Submitted

“It’s funny, all these paintings I’ve been doing here in preparing for this show, I felt like Richard and I were out hiking in the redwoods and the Tolowa Dunes again,” Wiens said, referring to her husband, former Triplicate editor and publisher Richard Wiens. “It was really cool.”

According to the Grays Harbor Historical Seaport Authority, due to a system of severe weather, the two tall ships will extend their stay in Eureka while cutting their visit to Crescent City short. The ships’ Evening and Adventure Sails and their famous Battle Sails will be offered out of Eureka through Sunday.
