Calendar Features

Every autumn for the past 32 years, the small staff at Maude Kerns Art Center — with help from a couple hundred volunteers — begin organizing the tremendous, annual Art & the Vineyard Festival. The festival, which kicks off 11am Friday and runs all weekend long in Alton Baker Park, is the art center’s biggest fundraising event of the year. It crams a whole summer’s worth of activities into one weekend and attracts 20,000 visitors. Proceeds from the festival can be enough to fuel Maude Kerns’ education and exhibit programs throughout the year. Maude Kerns’ publicity coordinator Marsha Shankman says it’s difficult to pick her favorite thing about the festival, but she always looks forward to unwinding a little in the “Art for Your Garden” zone — a much-needed oasis of peace, quiet and beauty after the hard work of getting the festival up and running. This year’s program promises musicians, both on stage and strolling the grounds; local artists, authors and craft vendors; a beer garden and wine court; entertainment for the kids and 4th of July fireworks. 

Art & the Vineyard runs 11am-9:30pm Friday, 11am through the 4th of July fireworks Saturday night & 11am-6:30pm Sunday; ticket are $7-$9, three-day passes go for $16, Discounts available for kids. See artinthevineyard.org.

After watching a flesh-and-blood cowboy ripped and jolted around like a flimsy ragdoll in a demon-possessed washing machine, it’s tempting to dismiss rodeo sport as an idiotic spectacle of might and luck. But it ain’t. Cody Hudson, a promising young rider from Camas, Washington, once told me bull riding is a thinking man’s game. Furthermore, Hudson argued, the physical challenge of covering 1,000 pounds of livid, surging beef is a test of cowboy grace more than muscle, ligament or bone. “The bull is bred for this,” Hudson said. “It knows what it’s doing, too. And it has no want for me on its back.” The chute flies open and hell breaks loose for eight whole seconds, if the cowboy even lasts that long. “If his form is good and he does all the right things, the littlest guy can ride the biggest bulls,” Hudson added. The Eugene Pro Rodeo kicks of Thursday, July 2, and continues through the weekend. Expect bucking broncos, barrel races, bull riding, mutton bustin' and country music, along with hats, chaps, fringe, nationalism, the smell of leather, line dancing and fireworks.

Eugene Pro Rodeo at the Oregon Horse Center, 90751 Prairie Rd., runs 4pm-midnight Thursday, July 2, to Saturday, and 1-6pm Sunday; for a detailed event schedule and ticket prices, see eugeneprorodeo.com. —Ben Ricker

In a blog entry entitled “Oscar Oversights” for the web site Parallax View, Seattle critic Richard Jameson writes: “What movie most influenced the ‘American renaissance’ filmmakers of the ’70s? If you answered The Searchers, take a cigar, pilgrim. This towering Western — acclaimed as the supreme example of its genre, the masterwork of director John Ford, featuring the best performance ever given by John Wayne and firmly ensconced as one of the Ten Best Films of All Time in international polls devoted to such things — has left its DNA in dozens of later movies, from Taxi Driver to Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Star Wars.” Jameson praises the film’s “visual grandeur, shattering power and the enigma of its monstrous hero,” while lamenting that it received zero Oscar nominations.

Lament not; movies are forever, and you can catch a free viewing of The Searchers during SpringFilm’s “Almost Oscars” series screening at 6:30pm Thursday, July 3, at Wildish Theater, 630 Main St., in Springfield.
