Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 09.07.06



.This Week's Calendar | Galleries | Music @ the Clubs

Deadline for Calendar and Art in the Galleries submissions are noon on Thursday, a week before the issue that covers your event. Send an e-mail with event, date, time, location and cost to attend to cal@eugeneweekly.com

 

Five years ago 2,819 Americans were killed in the Sept. 11th terrorist attacks. America's response: Two wars (Afghanistan and Iraq) which, combined, have resulted in 2,966 (and counting) American military personnel deaths. The low estimate of Iraqis dead since Operation Iraqi Freedom is 42,000. The path to freedom, it seems, is often paved with bones and blood halfway around the world. War, however, is not the only answer. This Sunday, Sept. 10, through Thursday, Sept. 21, the Oregon chapter of the Department of Peace Campaign initiates 11 days of Honoring Nonviolence, filled with dances, fasting, meditation, interfaith prayer, Gandhi-inspired films, peace walks and vigils aplenty. Most of it takes place at the Federal Building downtown. See Calendar listings or go to www.thepeacealliance.organd click on Event Calendar for a full schedule.



If you blink you'll miss Oregon's perfect match of sunshine and upper-70s temperatures that only comes in September (and February, lately). Strap on some sturdy shoes, unfold a few topo maps and get out there and enjoy the pre-Indian summer. If hiking's more of a social thing for you, try an Obsidians hike, departing most any day of the week. See Calendar listings.



In Eugene, everybody's a winner. Take artists, for example. They submit their work to the prestigious Mayor's Art Show, judged by a panel including Terry Melton, Lynn Wiley and Humberto Gonzales, and even if they are rejected they still get a show at the Salon des Refusés, where nobody is judged and anything goes. Somewhere along the way it became a higher honor to be rejected by the Mayor's Art Show than it was to be in it; it's more a stamp of codified coolness than a stamp of "loser." Nowadays, loser simply means cutting-edge. But let's take a second look at the Mayor's Art Show. Sure, we could call it the "Best of the Chi-Chi Galleries," but what must be remembered is that these pieces were judged, so it's more accurate to call it a curated exhibition — as opposed to the Salon's mash-up of miscellany. Both shows are opening tonight, so pick a side or straddle both (art) worlds. See Thursday Calendar.
