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.

  • European shares dip, dollar gains after Yellen comments
    European shares fell in thin trade on Monday while the dollar held firm after U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen indicated that the central bank was poised to raise interest rates this year. U.S. shares fell on Friday after Yellen suggested the Fed was ready to act if the economy kept improving as expected, though a raft of recent data has suggested it is growing only modestly in the second quarter. A warning on Sunday by Greece's interior minister that the country will not be able to meet a June 5 repayment to the International Monetary Fund, and political concerns in Spain after the ruling People's Party took a battering in regional and local elections, also weighed on European shares.
  • Oil prices dip below $65 as dollar strengthens
    Crude oil futures dipped below $65 a barrel as the dollar strengthened on Monday, with a public holiday in the United States and much of Europe keeping oil trading volumes muted. Front-month Brent crude fell 62 cents to $64.75 a barrel by 0828 GMT. U.S. crude was down 46 cents at $59.26 a barrel.
  • Iran says OPEC unlikely to change output ceiling: Mehr news agency
    OPEC is unlikely to change its production ceiling when the group meets in June, Iran's Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh said on Sunday, according to the semi-official Mehr news agency. "Lowering OPEC's production ceiling requires consensus between all members ... under current conditions it seems unlikely that the OPEC production ceiling will change," Zanganeh was quoted as saying. Last month, Zanganeh said the producing group should cut its target daily crude production by at least 5 percent, or approximately 1.5 million barrels per day.
