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.

  • Eyes on Fed after ECB, other bank stimulus moves
    The Federal Reserve could be key for Wall Street next week as investors get to hear from the U.S. central bank for the first time since a series of moves by its global peers, including the European Central Bank's massive stimulus plan. Thursday's larger-than-expected stimulus package from the ECB lifted U.S. stocks, helping indexes post gains for the week after three straight weeks of losses.
  • All eyes on Fed, Greece after ECB fires bazooka
    After the surprises from central banks which rocked markets at the start of the year, the U.S. Federal Reserve will be watched as closely as ever this week to see that it doesn't stray from its own policy path. The atmosphere will already be tense as the fallout from Sunday's snap election in Greece settles and concern has grown in some quarters that central banks, which played such a big part in guiding economies through the financial crisis, are becoming less predictable. The shock of the Swiss National Bank abandoning its cornerstone currency cap had yet to fully subside when the European Central Bank said it would flood markets with over a trillion euros, more than expected, to prevent the euro zone from sliding into deflation. Canada also cut its rate out of the blue and Denmark did so twice to navigate a world of tumbling oil prices and weak growth.
  • Venezuela's currency woes an increasing threat to U.S. corporate profits
    In a likely sign of things to come from a number of companies this results reporting season, Ford Motor Co on Friday said it was taking a pre-tax charge of $800 million for its Venezuela business. Ford also said that it was unable to maintain normal production in Venezuela with the availability of vehicle parts constrained. Also on Friday, diaper and tissue maker Kimberly-Clark Corp said it took a fourth-quarter charge of $462 million for its Venezuelan business.
