Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 9.23.10





.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

Eek! The rains have started, the chill is setting in, the Tea Baggers are in ascendance and True Blood is in re-runs. What is a person to do? The answer: Get out and enjoy the Sept. 24 Last Friday ArtWalk, a bracing and revitalizing journey for any sadsack with even the minutest appreciation for or interest in local arts. Among this week’s most excellent offerings are “Heart of Paint… Strokes of Auscultation” (whatever that means) at The Voyeur, an acrylic and mixed-media extravaganza by fine local artist Lindsay LePon (see one of her paintings above). Stuff gets underway between 5:30 and 6pm and typically runs until 9, at which point you should start looking for after parties (you didn’t hear it from us…) For a full list of places to go and people to see, along with your very own map, visit www.lastfridayartwalk.org
