An Art Party Downtown


Byline: Bob Keefer The Register-Guard

A giant art party is going to happen Friday evening in downtown Eugene, and you're invited.

The regular First Friday Art Walk will be joined by ballet from Ballet Fantastique, live outdoor music from the Jim Bronson Band, a festival of Latin American music and dance at Cozmic Pizza, a "Summer Soiree Block Party" by downtown merchants, a free concert at the library and an evening of the best 5-minute performances put on this season by No Shame Eugene.

Best of all, just about everything is free.

At Opus VII, 22 W. Seventh Ave., seven dancers from Ballet Fantastique will present a series of original ballet excerpts choreographed by Donna and Hannah Bontrager from their upcoming "Pirates & Gypsies" program. They'll present the full show later this summer at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's Green Show in Ashland.

The performance here is being given in connection with "Just Dancin'," an exhibit at Opus of new paintings by Anne Teigen.

Merchants throughout downtown are throwing the block party from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., offering strolling musicians, specialty food and drink, an antique appraisals booth and a raffle - tickets are $5 - for a series of gift baskets.

At Kesey Square, guitarist Jim Bronson joins Tom Martin on bass and Lenny Perkins on drums and Steve Ditmar on congas. They'll play two sets starting at 6 p.m.

While you're there, watch for photographer Erin Dougherty, with her camera in tow. Co-owner of Studio West, she'll be photographing Eugene residents downtown Friday evening for an exhibit she's planning at the gallery later this year.

Over at Cozmic Pizza, 199 W. Eighth Ave., check out the Festival Cultural de la Canci-n, Poes'a y Bailes Tradicionales de Latino amrica with folk and traditional Latin music and dances by Tito Amaya, Sol de los Andes, Duo Piel Canela, South in the North, Bossa Luna, Aquarela Do Brasil, Marvin Tijerino, Los Alegres de la Cumbia and Samba dances with Kelly Tavares. It's $10 at the door.

The official art walk starts at 5:30 p.m. at Modern, 207 E. Fifth Ave., Suite 105, and will be hosted by Patrick Hosfield, director of corporate and donor relations for the Oregon Bach Festival and president of the Eugene Active 20-30 Club. He'll lead a free walking tour of downtown art venues; many other galleries are open during the walk.

Modern is showing student furniture and lighting projects from the third annual University of Oregon Department of Product Design and School of Architecture Luminaire Design Competition and Exhibit. Some of the pieces in the show also were exhibited recently at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York.

The second stop on the walk, at 6 p.m., is Vistra Framing and Gallery, 160 E. Broadway, which is showing work by members of the Emerald Photographic Society. The local photo club has been in existence since 1961. Exhibitors include Bill Haynes, Ron Seguin, Stephanie Ames, Mike Van De Walker, Linda Magyary, Susan Starr, Keith Munson, Buzz Summers, Donna Gilhousen, Bob Roelke, Graham Smith, Bob Petit, Don Lown, Walt Biddle and Bruce Bittle.
