Details about First Friday ArtWalk hosted stops, December 5th:

#1 New Zone Gallery - 164 W Broadway. The featured artist at New Zone this month is Merideth Ferrell. Her show, ?My Passion is Color,? will be on display from Dec. 5th through Dec. 27th. Ferrell displays her luminous original silk paintings with new small framed silk hangings for the holidays, along with her luscious watercolors, and a first time showing of her expressive acrylic paintings. A special show celebrating a retrospective look at the life's work of local artist and scientist Will Klausmeier will run concurrently throughout the month. Also, New Zone?s Holiday Store will open Dec. 5th and stay open until Dec. 27th. A variety of original gifts created by New Zone artists will be available for sale.

#2 La Follette Gallery - 931 Oak St. La Follette is featuring the work of Jody Dunphy in a show called ?Inherently Sacred.? According to Dunphy, ??Inherently Sacred? is a series of mixed media prints inspired by the sustaining relationship that nature has with humanity and the sacredness of this bond. The prints present an interconnected vision with the world of nature as a fully integrated ecosystem and as an inseparable part of our body systems. I communicate this holistic vision in my art through blending layers and blurring the lines between body/nature, micro/macro and sacred/mundane.?

#3 Fenario Gallery ? 881 Willamette St. Local glass artist Mark Lammi will be presenting a series of mixed media installations in a show called ?Intuition? that will incorporate his signature glass work. Lammi's glass pieces are a study of form and line, and his constructions offer diverse views of these influences. He is known for his deft handling and ability to create strikingly delicate goblet and vessel forms, often influenced by classic Venetian design. Lammi says, "As an artist I've found borosilicate glass to be a medium unlike any other. There is a quality of intimacy between the glass and the artist that I find incredibly appealing."

#4 Museum of Unfine Art - 537 Willamette St. The Museum of Unfine Art features the works of Shawn Mediaclast and Jeremy Covert. The show is entitled ?Manic and Hyper-Realism.? Concerning his pieces, Jeremy Covert states, ?The paintings have multiple layers of meanings. Each person brings their own set of these layers to the paintings. That is what I look for in an image. Something in daily life that can represent something more than what it actually is.? Don?t miss the work of these two artists!

#5 Blue Moon Jewelry - 115 W 6th Ave. Three Eugene metal smiths explore the endless possibilities of texture and how it relates to metal adornment. Tracey Bell, Margarita O'Brien, and Renee Ford each showcase different approaches to the same exploration. The show features works in copper, silver, gold, enamel glass on metal, and gemstones. Individual pieces are displayed as well as collaborative works from the three metal smiths. This show will run until January 1, 2009.
