by: PHOTO COURTESY: S.L.O.T. GALLERY  - Conar Piermarini brings his background in architecture, industrial design and sculpture to his glass blowing, which is on display in downtown Oregon City. One of Piermarinis ancestors is Giuseppe Piermarini, who is famous for being the architect of La Scala Opera Hall in Milan.S.L.O.T., Oregon City’s newest gallery at 900 Main St., opened its second show on Friday: “Color, SASS & Beautiful Glass — Revealing Stages of JOY!” The works are on exhibit through Aug. 31.

Participating artists include:

1. Mandy Allen works in small-scale sculpture and art jewelry created by anodizing and dying metal and hand-working it into striking pieces. She has a bachelor of arts degree from Humboldt State University and is a member of the Creative Metal Arts Guild.

2. An artist known as “V-O-N-D-A” uses a variety of media, including acrylics that are thinned and used like watercolors to create vibrant paintings on canvas in various sizes.

3. Husband-wife team Ana Willow Obermayr and Conar Piermarini created sculptural pieces, as well as a large installation composed of multiple individual pieces that can be used in harmony inside or outside in gardens and green spaces. These are influenced by the pieces that Dale Chihuly, the internationally known glass artist, has done for museums and botanical gardens.

The gallery is open noon to 6 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, or by appointment. It will extend hours until 9 p.m. Saturday, July 27, for the First City Celebration in downtown Oregon City.
