Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 3.18.10





.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

Inspired by the current “Amazonia” exhibit at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, which features the eco-photography of Sam Abell and Torbin Nissen, students from North Eugene High School were asked to head out and create works of art that captured the essence of their local environment. The surprising results, captured in “Documenting Our Environment,” will be on display for one evening only in the school’s Glass Lounge during a free reception from 6-9pm Friday, March 19. This inaugural Academy of Arts 2D Student Works Exhibit is a good chance to behold the bold and original creativity of local teenagers.



Perhaps the most well-known and celebrated musician hailing from Hawaii since the late, great Don Ho, singer/songwriter John Cruz combines the freewheeling, improvisational jamming of the Dead, the traditional Latin groove of Santana and the staccato folk of Dave Matthews to create a sound that is at once exotic and accessible. Cruz, who grew up on Oahu, claims fans as diverse as Eddie Vedder, Jimmy Buffett and Phish’s Trey Anastasio, and his music has garnered numerous awards, including a Grammy and a Na Hoku Hanohano Award for Contemporary Album of the Year, for Cruz’s 2008 CD One of These Days. You can catch the wave of this internationally renowned islander 8pm Saturday when he plays Cozmic Pizza; $15 at the door.
