Brrrrrrrrrrr! It's so cold outside. But if we can hop from cozy restaurant to cozy bar to cozy bed, surely we can jump around for the handful of art openings going down at this month's Last Friday Art Walk. Some stops aren't showing this month (while artists hibernate) but there are a handful of brand spankin' new stops to pique your curiousity. Check out the newest venue on the walk at Gallery Obscura at 1255 Railroad Ave., where David Norem exhibits his work (pictured right) in a show called "Ultranopolis." New Frontier Market on West 8th hosts Kathleen Howard Piper's mixed media works in glass, wood and oil paint while Elemental Play on West 2nd shows sculptural works carved by Cynthius Scanlon. In other news, Immortal Souls is back from its hibernation, and Possum Place features sculptures crafted from Legos. There's a 10 percent chance of rain, so bring your umbrella. See www.lastfridayartwalk.org and Friday Calendar.

Want to remodel your home into a self-sustaining lodge of gentle love toward this island Earth? Well, your lifestyle will be accomodated at this weekend's Good Earth Home, Garden & Living Show at the Lane County Fairgrounds. More than 40 seminars covering everything from green design to naturescaping, 90 exhibits featuring eco-friendly products and technologies, seven pavilions of exhibitors (including food, music and entertainment stages) and a green building and solar home tour at 2 pm on Saturday complete this utterly decked-out show for the wholistic homeowner. Admission is just a donation of canned food to benefit FOOD for Lane County. See a complete schedule of events at www.eugenehomeshow.comand Calendar.

When photojournalist Paola Gianturco travels the world, she brings her camera, a notebook and a strong desire to root out and chronicle the women who are bringing hope to seemingly hopeless conditions. From Betty Makoni, founder of the Girl Child Network aimed at rape prevention in Zimbabwe, to Eugene's own Susan Sygall, founder of Mobility International USA, which motivates disabled people from around the world to lead their own organizations, Gianturco culled years of photographs, interviews and research into her new book Women Who Light The Dark. Gianturco will discuss her work at Temple Beth Israel. See www.womenwholightthedark.comand Tuesday Calendar.
