Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 10.01.09





.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

With the 1939 release of his first indisputable masterpiece, Stagecoach, director John Ford established his status as one of Hollywood’s true immortals, while also introducing the world to his future frequent collaborator, uber-iconic actor John Wayne. Were he simply to have stopped with this film, Ford’s reputation as an auteur, innovator and Western myth-maker (and myth-debunker) would have been established. But he didn’t stop, going on to create one legendary work after another, including The Searchers, The Grapes of Wrath and How Green Was My Valley, all three of which will be screened and discussed during DIVA’s bi-weekly “Behind the Lens” Seminar, which gets underway Friday.


It’s First Friday again! As we write this, the storms lash our windows and wet our bike seats, but we know that the Art Walk always brings out the best in Eugene’s weather (wait, let us check our smart phones … Friday’s hovering on the brink, people, so bring a rain jacket). The trek, led by new SLUG Queen Anislugia,  begins at Blue Moon Jewelry on 6th Ave and continues, after a death-defying highway crossing experience, at the superb Splinters Fall Show, Harlequin Beads, DIVA (lots of great work up there) and finally the Salon des Refusés at New Zone. Other galleries, like the WOW Hall (where Mo Bowen’s work, detail pictured, hangs), and businesses keep downtown hopping during the walk. Visit www.lanearts.org for more information.



Mozart’s onstage at the Oregon Mozart Players’ annual all-Amadeus concert Saturday, Oct. 3. The main course is their namesake’s stirring last symphony, one of the greatest works of music ever written: Symphony 41 (the Jupiter Symphony), whose dazzlingly intricate and impassioned finale never grows old. The engaging program also boasts an early serenade and one of Mozart’s chirruping flute concerti along with its probably original slow movement, now often played separately as Andante in C. Reasonably priced tix ($16-$38) available at www.hultcenter.org or 682-5000. — Brett Campbell
