Hot Stuff is the summery July show at Lane Gallery, 2627 SE Clinton St. Fireworks, spice and summer: Hot Stuff brings us peppery still-lifes by Susan Thomas, sculptural glass vessels by Kyle Kraiter (pictured), Phyllis Meyer’s brilliant collages, and rich red mixed-media calligraphic works by Karen Swallow. The heat continues through July 28. Opening July 4, there will be a First-Friday artists’ reception and community party July 5 at 6 pm. Join us for fine art, artists and treats from both Compote Café & Bakery and KIVA Tea Café Spa. The gallery is open from 11 to 7 daily and closed on Wednesdays.503.232.3526. www.laneartgallery.com .
