Music by David Rogers will help kick off the the first stop on the First Friday ArtWalk at 5:30pm.
There will be tasty treats and refreshments: Sizzle Pie, Sweet Life, Papa's Soul Food, Poppi's Anatolia and many others and once again there will be beer from Ninkasi Brewery.
Every third Monday at 6pm we host the monthly Art Forum- membership is free and open to all! Contact Patricia at 541.686.6117 for details on the October 19th meeting.
Salon du Peuple!
There will be Voting! Patrons will be able to vote for their favorite artist(s) by writing the art tag number of the pieces(s) on their favorite US currency and depositing it into the New Zone donation/ballot box by the entry door. Prizes will be awarded to the artists with the most votes tallied.
Speaking of voting, please select New Zone gallery as the "Best Place to See Art" in Eugene Weekly's "Best of Eugene". This can be done on-line or dropped off at their office. Voting ends next week.
Later in December the New Zone "Holiday Store" will open. Stay tuned for further updates, vecause supporting our local artists while surprising your loved ones with special one of a kind gifts is what Eugene is all about.
On October 2nd at 5:30 pm, join us at the gallery for the first stop on the First Friday ArtWalk showcasing our annual Salon du Peuple open show, reception complete with the artists on hand, food, beverages courtesy of Ninkasi Brewing and music by David Rogers.
We have made some changes in our Live Drawing sessions, starting on Tuesday, November 3rd at 7pm and continuing every Tuesday at 7pm. The rescheduling was made so that we do not conflict with other drawing sessions going on Wednesday nights elsewhere. The more Live Drawing sessions around town, the merrier.
"The Cabinet of Steampunk Curiosities", a month long exhibition of Steampunk art will start on the First Friday, November 6th. This show will feature steampunk art from New Zone members and Oregon artists. On the nights of Friday the 20th and Saturday the 21st, starting at 7pm, there will be special ticketed extravaganza steampunk events with entertainment, music, food, beverages, film and more art will be held in the transformed main gallery. Tickets are on sale now at $10 and $12 at the evening of the event(s).
