As a bone-marrow transplant nurse, Eugene artist Robert Charles Le Moon, now retired, spent nearly 30 years witnessing and, in his words, being responsible for thousands of deaths. “Our treatments killed our patients rather than their disease,” says Le Moon, whose experiences lead to post-traumatic stress disorder, an affliction that eventually sparked his artistic and spiritual side. “I knew that the only thing that would keep me alive would be seeing the beauty in things,” he says, “even the beauty in loneliness.” Le Moon recently transformed his living room into a gallery in preparation for the debut exhibit of his artwork. Each stack of photo-mounted cards is carefully placed around the string-light illuminated room that is adorned with colorful, draped sheets — Le Moon says a living room is more casual than a cold, art gallery. The exhibit presents a blunt contrast to Le Moon’s grim background as a transplant nurse back when the mortality rate was at 80-90 percent. Having traveled 125,000 miles around the country with a 35mm camera, he says he’s ready to share his healing work with the Eugene community. Prints of sunsets, abandoned barns and other nature-themed scenes bring a humbled depth to Le Moon’s simple work, which he refuses to copy and duplicate through digital means. “That moment is gone and that’s what happens in life,” he says. “It goes.”

“One Card, Many Stories: First Friday Pop-Up Gallery Event,” an exhibit featuring works by Robert Charles Le Moon, takes place 6-8pm Friday, Feb. 5, and 10am-4pm Saturday & Sun, Feb 6-7, at Le Moon's home studio, 1095 E. 35th Ave.; FREE, info at 731-7132. — Kelsey Anne Rankin

The marriage of Abigail Washburn and Béla Fleck is akin to the joining of two royal Houses of Banjo: Here the ancient soulful sounds of House Clawhammer (Washburn) merge with the futuristic technical virtuosity of House Three-Finger (Fleck). Innovators with accolades galore, these two banjo ambassadors have given much to the world of banjo, performing the instrument everywhere from Tanzania to Tibet — the couple’s Sparrow Quartet was the first American band to tour the latter. Wanting to spend more time as a family after having a son, the duo launched its first official tour together in 2013. And when the First Family of Banjo arrives at The Shedd Feb. 10, expect a showcase featuring the beautiful versatility of the 5-string banjo, including some of Washburn’s songs which are performed in Mandarin Chinese. Need a primer? Check out Washburn’s fabulous TED Talk, “Building U.S.-China Relations … by Banjo.”

Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn perform at 7:30pm Wednesday, Feb. 10, at The John G. Shedd Institute for the Arts, 868 High St.; $39-$59. — Tony Cipolle

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!
