Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 6.5.08





.This Week's Calendar | Ongoing 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

Time to consume a gallon of water Friday night in anticipation of the return of the Sasquatch Brewfest on Saturday at Kesey Plaza in Downtown Eugene. “Sasquatch” is both a nod to the nickname of Glen Falconer (for whom the festival was inaugurated) and the thriving Pacific Northwest craft brewery scene. If you attended February’s KLCC Microbrew Festival, it’s pretty much the same deal except outdoors. For $10 you get a commemorative glass and two taste tickets. More tastes can be purchased at a reasonable price throughout the festival grounds as you sip and guzzle a heady mixture of craft brews from around the northwest. Sample across many styles since you get to vote on your favorites. Prizes will be awarded for the top three finishers in nine categories. Music will be provided by Alpha Dahlia (formerly the Co-Stars), SuperTrout (pictured), Medium Troy and Man Overboard. See www.sasquatchbrewfest.org and Saturday Calendar.



Is it actually June? Calendar nonbelievers want to know: How did we get here and why? But oh well, might as well jump right into the meat of things with the First Friday ARTWalk, this month led by Miriam Alexis Jordan of the UO’s Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art. The party starts at Opus6ix with two shows, Ellen Dittebrandt’s “Intimate View of Nature,” which “reveals the colors and vitality of nature,” and Hannah Goldrich’s Italy-inspired jewelry pieces (pictured). Stop #2 visits Jay Backstrand’s paintings at Jacobs Gallery, a show that posits the completely original question, “What is beauty?” Stop #3 cozies up with Nancy Piccioni’s metal jewelry at Blue Moon Jewelry (natch) before jettisoning down Broadway to see “images related to sports” by Denise Steel. Nancy Gant’s glass art at Harlequin Beads is on view at stop #5 while collaborative prints by Mason Williams and Sheri Hoeger await you at La Follette Gallery on the sixth and final stop of the art walk. La Follette owner Cyndy Duerfeldt will also show a handful of her painted landscapes. See Friday Calendar.


Biking home from work on Monday, the route we usually follow through the intersection of 13th and Willamette was cordoned off with yellow tape and police cars (bicyclist David Minor was killed by an Oldsmobile), so, being the crafty (and idiotic) bike riders we are, we took to sidewalks and back alleys to avoid all the hubbub, probably breaking a few laws and endangering our safety along the way. Maybe we should take a few lessons from the city of Eugene and the GEARs bicycling group when they offer free classes on how to bicycle effectively and safely as a vehicle on June 12, 20 and 21. Email Paul Adkins, GEARs president, at paul@eugenegears.org or call 255-2478 to register. Or, if you’re in the mood to simply enjoy the many activities a people-powered vehicle can take on, check out Bike Day at the Science Factory and BMX grounds near Autzen Stadium. Join the bike parade, get a bike safety check, eat free ice cream, join a group ride at 9am, enter the raffle, register your bike with the Eugene Police Department (summer is high season for bike thefts) and take part in the bike safety rodeo. Wear a damn helmet and see Saturday Calendar..
