Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 3.11.10

.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

This donated painting by Geoff McCormack is one among the 100 works of art that will be given away, through an anonymous drawing, to some lucky and/or generous soul participating in DIVA Art Center’s “100 for $100” fundraiser taking place 6:30pm Thursday, March 11, at the former Nike store at 5th Street Public Market. The you-scratch-our-back-we’ll-scratch-yours idea, so smart, is that each of the 100 individuals who purchased tickets will be supporting DIVA while at the same receiving a piece of fine art worth at least $100 in value — not to mention the added benefit of knowing they are supporting a good cause. Non-drawing tickets are available for $15; call 344-3482 for information.
