Curtain’s paintings showcased

Boulder City Art Guild will present paintings by Charme Curtain in its gallery throughout February.

Her work includes interiors, landscapes, portraits and animals. She said she draws or paints every day and her subjects will usually determine whether she uses a realistic approach or provides the opportunity to offer her perception of the subject.

Curtain paints in oils and acrylics, and like her approach, is “chosen” by the subject.

A reception in her honor will be held from 1-3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2. Light refreshments will be served.

The gallery is inside the Boulder Dam Hotel, 1305 Arizona St., and is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free.

Popcorn ceiling removal can pose health risks

The dreaded popcorn ceiling, aka cottage cheese, stucco, etc., has long fallen out of favor in the design world. That objectionable lumpy surface — dated, dust collecting, difficult to clean — is something most homeowners can’t wait to get rid of. We are familiar with this angst as many of our houses were constructed during a time when “popcorn” wasn’t just for eating.
