Art Lovers Get Busy: Eugene Galleries Rich with Exhibits Worth a Look


Byline: Bob Keefer The Register-Guard

It's been a hot spring so far for art lovers in Eugene, with exhibits blooming faster than the eye can see. If you haven't been to all of them yet, here are a few shows around town you might want to go visit:
