Stop #1  5:30 PM | The Lincoln Gallery (309 W 4th Ave) 

“Look Me in the Eye” is an exhibition inspired by the Look Me in the Eye campaign now in its 7th year. The campaign is a partnership between Oregon Supported Living Program and Full Access, promoting respect and inclusion for people with developmental and intellectual disabilities. This exhibition builds bridges to a more inclusive community through the universal language of creative expression. Included are 2D and 3D works from artists of the Oregon Supported Living Program, as well as the greater community.  The Community Room Gallery showcases the wonderful mixed media artwork of Lisa Yu.

Stop #2  6 PM | Raven Frame Works (325 W 4th Ave) 

To describe the artwork that Whiteaker artist Haint Bradly makes as “papercraft shadow boxes” is a huge understatement. Haint takes paper, patience, skill, and imagination to a unique level. His work is meticulous, colorful, and stunning. Originally from Tennessee, Haint was well known as an “Outsider artist.” This term refers to self-taught artists who are not part of the artistic establishment. Come experience the colorful world of Outsider artist Haint!

Stop #5  7:30 PM | InEugene Real Estate (100 E Broadway) 

San Francisco Bay Area artist Eric Joyner holds a firm place in contemporary art the way a hole inhabits a doughnut; there is only one – immutable and unmistakable. Juxtaposing modern and fantastical landscapes with dinosaurs, robots, and doughnuts, Joyner delights aficionados and children alike with dreamland gravitas. Oil-paint transformed into sugary sprinkles, tin rocketry, and prehistoric grandeur reverberates ripples of humor, social commentary, and Joyner’s own life, utterly committed to his art.

This opening features live music, Voodoo Doughnuts, a robot costume-contest and more! Joyner’s work has long been a feather-in-the-cap of serious (and not-so-serious) art collectors far-and-wide, and his framed, high-quality prints will be available for sale on site. Joyner has his paintings hanging on Hollywood sets, from The Big Bang Theory to the X-Files and boasts George Lucas as a client. More info: https://ericjoyner.com.
