A Fall Concerts



ith the coming of the fall, there are many new opportunities for students to enjoy the local music scene of Salem, Portland, and the surrounding areas. Concerts arise often around this season, caught between the end of summer and the cusp of winter. Local and traveling musicians often perform at the local Lower B Cinema in South Salem, with often cheap prices ranging from $5-10 per show. Other concerts in Salem can be found at the Historic Elsinore Theater, local vineyards, and Riverfront Park. Portland opens up a wider range of

musical events, with many large concerts at the MODA center, such as Ariana Grande, The Who, Madonna, Hozier, and Janet Jackson. Dates and ticket prices vary for these events, and can be found on Other concerts can be found in Portland too, such as Halsey, at the Wonder Ballroom on November 14, Chastity Belt, at Mississippi Studios on September 15, and Joan Armatrading, in Revolution Hall on October 23. Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions will also be touring through Portland and performing at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall on September 17.

rt festivals and new exhibits at museums are plentiful during the later months of the year. Two popular destinations are the Hallie Museum of Art, the museum of Willamette University, and the Bush Barn Art Center. Until Oct. 25, Portland artist Sherrie Wolf is featured at Hallie in her exhibit, Object Lessons. It contains paintings, prints, and other paper still life works from private collections. A related exhibit, titled Stilleven: Contemporary Still Life, from Sept. 12 to Dec. 20. The main attraction is also still life related works, captured in the mediums of paint, drawings, prints, photography, sculpture, glass, and mixed media. 27 artists are featured from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, and the British Columbia, including Katherine Ace, Holly Andres, David Giese, Norman Lundin, Flora Mace, and others. More information on all exhibits, current and future, can be found on the Willamette University website.

Bush Barn runs many similar events. Their featured artist from Sept. 1 to Oct. 24 is Maud Durland, a Portland watercolorist known for her calming landscapes, and use of light and shadow. The Gallery Guides showcase will also be running. Gallery Guides are volunteers at the center who welcome visitors, support art, and make it. The first part will run from Sept. 7 to Sept. 27, and the second from Oct. 1 to Oct. 24. In between the Gallery Guide exhibitions will be Working in the Empty Spaces: Women Artists of AMBUS. It is supposed to be an interesting show meant to make viewers think about positive and negative, background and foreground, and where ideas come and go. A brief discussion will be held by the artists in the exhibition at 6:00 p.m. An event named Fine Art Friday will hold the opening receptions for the Maud Durland exhibit, the first half of the Gallery Guides showcase, and Working in the Empty Spaces. Oct. 1 will be

the opening reception for Gallery Guides part II. More information can be found on the Bush Barn Art Center website. The Bush House Museum also runs daily tours until Dec. 20. An actual historic home, it features 19th century furnishings, dated appliances and utilities, and preserves the culture and history of Oregon’s Bush family. Bush’s Pasture Park, where the museum is located, also holds a conservatory from 1882, the art center in the original Bush family barn, walking trails, a rose garden, and children’s play areas. Gaiety Hollow is a different type of art. Free tours are held at the former home of Elizabeth Lord and Edith Schryver. Both were landscape artists, and the home is now surrounded by beautiful gardens containing combinations of flowering shrubs, perennial, and annual blooms. Volunteers are available onsite to answer all questions, with the Gaiety Hollow website also having more information. Photo by Kiana Ruff-Jackson
