Not many captured Sid Vicious in intimate moments like photojournalist Eileen Polk, a friend of the punk icon. See her ’70s-era photography with images of Sid Vicious, Deborah Harry, The Ramones, New York Dolls and more at the Punk Icons: Images of the Original Scene 1974-1979 exhibit now through Jan. 14 at Cowfish, 62 W. Broadway; opening reception 6 to 9 pm Friday, Dec. 6.

 

Eugene Contemporary Art has ushered in its fifth Public Process artist in residence: New York-born ceramic artist and painter William Ruller. Ruller’s work combines the post-industrial patina of the “abandoned mills and tanneries of my youth in the Northeast” and “the majestic splendor of the Pacific Northwest.” The artist will give his first ECA lecture 7 pm Dec. 5 at The Wave Gallery in the Whit.

 

She’s not your average heroine: Gwen Price is the med student who eats brains to maintain her own in the beloved comic iZombie, set here in Eugene. Now Price will be a TV star too. The CW network has tapped Veronica Mars writers Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero to adapt iZombie for the small screen. Undead fingers crossed that Eugene remains the backdrop, animated or not.
