of goodies and big celebrity

have you ever considered The
Escape Room in Port. St. Lucie?
This is one of those “cagey” ex-
periences where you get “locked”
in a room with a team of people,
perhaps strangers. Together, you
solve clues to open one or more
locked doors. Yes, there is an exit,
but where’s the fun in that? The
experiences run about 90 minutes
and begin at various hours from
Wednesdays through Sundays.
Tickets are $25, for 13 years and
older. Call 772-626-6655 or visit
EscapeRoomPSL.com, where you
can find a list of questions and
answers to reassure you that, end

‘STROLL’ LOTTA LOVE FOR CREATIVE TYPES AT ART WALK

Artist Gretchen Green. Singer/songwriter Deborah. creative artwork offered in local galleries and gift shops. Shop-
keepers welcomed visitors with friendly banter and a sam-
pling of cheese, sweets and wine. Music along the trek was as
individual as the art, varying from a soulful sidewalk soloist
outside Seriously Mixed Media to a high-energy rock bank at
Sailfish Brewery. It was all part of the sights and sounds of the
monthly art walk held on the third Friday of the month.

A steady crowd paraded through the Seriously Mixed Me-
dia gallery on Orange Avenue to take in the eclectic display
of totally unique creations. Four free-thinking women – Allie
Comer, Sherry Horton, Janet Bird Fuller and Gretchen Green
– have created a gallery where you can expect to see the un-
expected. Recycling is the underlying theme with antique
cameras and phones newly bedazzled to create tabletop art,
and paper, fabric and leaves adding dimension to paintings
and sculptures.

“You’ll find artistic creations here that you will not see
anywhere else,” said Green, who makes animal-shaped wall
plaques crafted from tin cans and coated with resin. “If you
look closely, you’ll see that this dog plague is made from a
maple syrup can,” Green explained. “I scour thrift stores for
collectible tins and canisters, cut them apart, mount them on
a plywood form and then pour resin over it. It’s kind of like
having art within art because the more you look the more you
can decipher the original can.”

Guest artist and Fort Pierce native Julie Lounibos had a
spectacular evening showcasing her oil and acrylic paintings
of local landscapes and tropical trees. “I sold six painting in
the first hour of the show,” said Lounibos excitedly. “I usually
display some of my work in the back of the gallery where a
group of artist friends share the space. But this month I was
featured up front and it’s been wonderful.”

Further down the road at Christine’s Coastal Treasures,
guests were invited to paint a fish for the ever-expanding fish
fence on 2nd St. “Art is great therapy,” said owner Christine
Fitzgerald. “We have classes for shattered glass and resin art,
multimedia and acrylic painting. We help you discover your
own inner creativity so you can not only look at art but make
your own.”

You could make your own scented candles too at Notions
and Potions, where professional candle makers guide you
through blending your own scent, to pouring the mold, to cre-
ating your own signature label.

The monthly art walk not only opens up venues to view
and purchase the works of professionals, but it inspires the
budding artist in all of us. Don’t miss next month’s art walk in
historic downtown Fort Pierce on Feb. 21. 

FROM WHERE DOES THE WINNER COME? K85

By Phillip Alder - Bridge Columnist A42

seven clubs. 962

Usually in a trump contract, you first count losers. However, in a grand slam you cannot SOUTH
afford any, so you should tally winners. Here, declarer starts with 12: two spades, two
hearts, two diamonds and six clubs. From where may the extra winner come? A74

South must establish a third diamond trick, either because the queen falls in one or two K63
rounds, or by finding the suit splitting 4-3.

Declarer carefully takes the first trick with his heart king, to retain the ace as a vital dummy
entry. He cashes the club king and diamond king, then plays a trump to dummy’s ace. After K Q J 10 8 5
