Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 7.3.08





.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

We guess we should balance out all this talk of sports and bombs with a mention of the Art and the Vineyard Music and Arts Festival, now in its 25th year, at Alton Baker Park Friday through Sunday. At the first A&TV in 1984, organizers forgot to bring water to the site (at what is now LaVelle Vineyards) and so everyone drank wine. In the festival’s current incarnation, you can still drink all the wine you like (more than 21 Oregon vineyards will be on tap), but it will come in taste-size cups at a cost of 25 cents to $1 per taste. Or go whole hog and buy a glass, bottle or case. We especially enjoy the garden art available at the artists’ marketplace and the Oregon Authors’ Table (because the only thing missing from a glass of wine is a good book). On the music stage, hear pop-rock outfit Quarterflash (pictured) on Friday, where A&TV turns into a Freedom Festival, complete with fireworks. See Calendar.



Downtown is alive with the sound of music! And no, it’s not Bach echoing out of the Hult Center; it’s the sound of hordes (hordes!) of people taking to the streets for what is known as the First Friday ArtWalk. Lane Arts Council’s Executive Director Douglas Beauchamp will lead this week’s tour and interview the artists at each stop. This week’s event starts at the Museum of Unfine Art and Record Store, which presents phantasmagorical paintings by Scott Boyes (once named Best Local Artist in EW’s readers’ poll) and iconic work by Claire Flint. At stop #2, Fenario Gallery, visit Sarah Ciampa’s exhibit of oil paintings, “Omens and Accidents,” which detail the ongoing existential crisis of fate and physics. Stop #3 features “Diversity in Glass” at the Oregon Glass Guild, where fate and physics make such lovely vases and bowls. The final stop on the art walk lands at DIVA’s galleries, where “The Notion of Motion” exhibit explores movement in a highly visual, if unexciting, way. Don MacLane’s exhibit of interactive kinetic sculpture (pictured) is definitely worth checking out. See Friday Calendar.


Get your Fourth of July started right by racing the Butte to Butte 10k run and walk. From its start at 40th and Donald Street, the course climbs a steep hill for the first mile, then descends a mile to a flat course that winds its way through the heart of Eugene to end at Skinner Butte Park. Once you’ve had your post-race brunch, it’s time to hit the dozens of Lane County wineries for midsummer tastings. King Estate Winery is going to keep its MarketPlace open through the weekend so you can sample local foods with your vino, but that’s not an endorsement to just park yourself in the vineyard. Clean your palate and make it to one of the many celebrations in the area, starting with the Art and the Vineyard Freedom Festival at Alton Baker Park and moving outwards to the Eugene 08 Festival (fireworks on the track), Springfield’s Light of Liberty Celebration, Creswell’s July 4th Celebration and Albany’s Timber Carnival. See Calendar.
