Details about the First Friday ArtWalk guided tour stops for April 4th:
5:30 pm Eugene Springfield Art Project (224 E 11th Ave)
Eugene Springfield Art Project (ESAP) and Oregon Supported Living Program (OSLP) present the artwork of Terry and Perry Johnson through April 30th. Terry and Perry Johnson are part of triplet brothers born and raised in Eugene. Perry worked at Wentworth Buick, as a janitor, and detailed cars for 40 years, until he was laid off. Terry has worked at Goodwill and Pearl Buck Center. Terry draws and paints cars, specifically his favorite the 1956 Cadillac Fleetwood. Perry frequently draws and paints timeline images from his years working for Wentworth, as well as members of his family, his childhood home, and landscapes from historical Eugene and other Oregon cities. They see each other weekly when they attend the OSLP Arts and Culture Studio on Wednesdays. All the artwork for this exhibit was created during their time at the OSLP Arts and Culture Studio. OSLP serves adults with developmental disabilities through their residential homes, supported living program, community inclusion and employment program, and arts and culture program.
The back gallery will also feature an open call show “One for Spring.”
6:00 pm Oregon Art Supply (1020 Pearl St)
Oregon Art Supply showcases mixed media and assemblage artwork by Beverly Soasey. Beverly states, “My art falls in the category of mixed media/assemblage, which for me means, anything goes. There are no boundaries, no formal rules on execution of materials. In a blending of objects and media, assemblage invites exploration and experimentation. My work is a study of textures, patterns, and color–the combination of elements that intrigue and surprise the viewer. This process begins with the search and ends in a story.”
6:30 pm Urban Lumber Company Furniture Showroom (28 E Broadway)
Urban Lumber Company Furniture Showroom features paintings by one of Eugene’s favorite artists, Lynn Ihsen Peterson. Lynn captures scenes across Oregon, from Ponderosas in the high Cascades to storms across the High Desert to meadows in the late day sun. She will also be showing some of her recent tile work.
7:00 pm Broadway Commerce Center, presented by DIVA (44 W Broadway)
The Lane County Artists Juried Art Exhibit, presented by DIVA, will be up at the Broadway Commerce Center on the second floor, through June 14th. The exhibit features 15 regional artists.
7:30 pm The New Zone Gallery (164 W Broadway)
The New Zone Gallery hosts a New Zone tradition entitled, "ZONE 4 ALL", a non-juried show open to all NW artists during the month of April. Hundreds of original art pieces are expected to be shown from both well-known and first time artists. The exhibit will be up through April 25th.
