The Exotic Wood Gallery on Chetco Avenue has reopened with a new manager in preparation for the summer season.

Current gallery hours will be noon to 2 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, to be extended soon to five days from noon to 4 p.m.

"I want to fit in with the hours of the other galleries," said gallery owner Brian Scott.

Scott said his new manager, Deane Longo, has been his copilot for Meals on Wheels for several years.

Recently, when he told her that he was having a difficult time finding someone to work in the gallery, she agreed to do it.

"Brian is a really nice person who is going out of his way to do good things for the community," Longo said. "I told him I wouldn't mind helping out. My afternoons are free."

Her first day at the gallery was during the April Second Saturday Art Walk.

"I had a lot of fun," she said. "It's the first time I've done anything like this, and I think it's gonna' make my day kind of nice. I met a lot of nice people."

Scott said the gallery will continue to feature exotic wood furniture and art objects, including the work of Ron James, plus paintings of Sjana Nanni and water colorist Leszak Forczek. Jeanne Steele will be the gallery's featured artist for the June Second Saturday Art Walk. Scott is also showing the terra cotta works of John Archuleta.

He said that Forczek, who is recovering from surgery, will be the gallery's featured artist later this summer.

Scott said he is looking for other local woodworking artists.

"I'm looking for excellent craftsmen," he said. "I want to promote local people and Native Americans."

In fact, Scott is so excited about reopening the gallery, with Longo's help that he is even talking about eventually opening the basement for "funky" music and other live performances.

For information about the gallery, or to submit art, call Scott at (541) 661-1002.

Tech workers filed a class action lawsuit against Apple Inc (AAPL.O), Google Inc (GOOGL.O), Intel Inc (INTC.O) and Adobe Systems Inc (ADBE.O) in 2011, alleging they conspired not to poach one another's employees in order to avert a salary war. The case, closely watched in Silicon Valley, was largely built on emails among top executives, including late Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs and former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, who agreed not to approach each others employees with job offers.
