Calendar Features

May’s First Friday ArtWalk is not your typical art crawl but the perfect storm of multiple creative forces in Eugene, including a video projection preview of the Cinema Pacific Fringe Festival (6:30 pm) and “Hard Truths: A Collaborative Printmaking Show,” both at the Broadway Commerce Center, as well as the winners’ showcase performances for the Arts & Business Alliance of Eugene’s Make-A-Band competition (2 to 10 pm, 8th & Oak). This month’s host, Mayor Kitty Piercy, starts the guided walk at 5th Street Public Market’s Bloom, which is kicking off its month-long “The Art of Gardens” event. Next stop is the Jacobs Gallery at the Hult presenting “The Macchia Six — Landscape Painters,” a show curated by Eugene’s own masterful painter Jerry Ross (whose work is pictured), followed by visits to the UO Architecture Student Design-Build ‘Parklet’ (in front of 41 W. Broadway) and to The Octagon, where local woodworker Tom S. Clark is showing his unique pieces from Divine Light Altars.

Eugene’s First Friday ArtWalk begins at 5:30pm Friday, May 1, at BLOOM, 5th Street Market; FREE.

When married comedy team Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally come to the Hult Center May 2 for their Summer of 69: No Apostrophe tour, Parks and Recreation junkies will get a much-needed fix. Although Parks and Rec (the show where they played hysterically vengeful exes Ron and Tammy Swanson) aired its final episode in February, there’s still a cult-like following for Offerman’s brand of post-postmodern lumberjack (he’s a bona-fide carpenter in real life) and Mullally’s cheeky irreverence, which dates back to her lush Karen days on Will & Grace. In the afterglow of sitcom success, Offerman launched American Ham, a comedy special on Netflix, and Mullally is singing and rapping as half of spoof duo Nancy and Beth. “We got sick of being apart while we’re touring with our disparate acts so we’ve written a show together,” Offerman said on Late Night with Seth Meyers. “It’s going to be quite explicit.” Mullally has described it as a variety show complete with skits, musical numbers and sex acts. Who said married people are boring?

Summer of 69: No Apostrophe kicks off 8pm Saturday, May 2, at the Hult Center; $41.50, tickets at 682-5000.

Calendar Submission Guidelines:

 

Calendar publication days are every Thursday. Due date for the calendar is the Thursday before the Thursday issue in which you would like your event published. Our What's Happening calendar is an eight-day calendar, Thursday to Thursday, while our music listings calendar is a seven-day calendar, Thursday to Wednesday. 

Example: If your event happens on Wednesday, Aug. 20, your listing would appear in our Aug. 14 issue, and the listing would be due to the calendar editor on Thursday, Aug. 7. Events that happen on Thursdays may be listed in two issues if the listing is submitted on time.

To facilitate organizing our calendar listings, please send your information as text in the body of the email  to cal@eugeneweekly.com, and attach only pertinent photos as high resolution jpg files, 1MB or larger. Attaching high resolution pictures greatly increases your chances of getting featured in our weekly calendar.

Sending information mixed with images descriptions, formatting and attachments makes locating the information difficult for our calendar writers, so please send all information in text, at the top of your message. Label all photos with the name of what is pictured or the event.

At the bottom of the email feel free to add extra information and details in case we can expand on your listing a little.

The closer you are to our listing format, the better the chance of your listing getting in the way you want it!

The calendar lists free events and special, one-time events that charge admission. We list one-time workshops under $15, but do not list ongoing classes or workshops that charge any sort of fee.

The What's Happening Calendar no longer accepts submissions regarding music; please submit these in a separate email to the Music Listings calendar  outlined below.

To list in our calendar: Place the date (example: July 15, 2014)  in the subject line of your message. 

At the top of the message, include briefly and without extra description:

Event name, time, location, address and cost.

Refer to our online calendar listings for the format. For times, am and pm are always lowercased, and we use & instead of and.
