* Acorn Craft Bazaar
If you're insane enough to hit downtown on First Thursday, why not throw this into the mix as well? The Oak St. posse of Reading Frenzy, Half & Half, and Retread Threads are starting an invitation-only craft bazaar every First Thursday. Find a little soul in the midst of yuppie hell. Reading Frenzy, 921 SW Oak, 274-1449, Thursday 6-9 pm

* An Evening of Video, Sound, and Performance Art
Here's your don't-miss event of the week: Savage invited recent Portland transplant and pretty damn successful artist Chris Johanson to curate a mini, one-night-only TBA Fest. Johanson is bringing in work by such greats as Erwin Wurm, Jo Jackson, and Comedy Artist Diego Vincent. Savage Art Resources, 1430 SE Third Ave, 230-0265, Friday, 8 pm

Daumier to Lautrec: French Prints and Drawings
Where do we stand with the French right now? I haven't heard anybody admit that they may have been right about us not invading Iraq, but do we still hate them for their general Frenchiness? Didn't one of them spit in Lance Armstrong's face on that big bike ride? The guy only has one nut, for Chrissakes! Love em or hate em, $15 is still too much to spend to see this show of their drawings. Portland Art Museum, 1219 SW Park Ave, 226-2811, Through Oct. 24, $6-15

* Draw or Die
W+K 12, the standard-setting advertising school/agency/whatever division of Wieden + Kennedy is hosting it's first group drawing show, which promises to be a wild explosion of sketches and ideas. And here's a shocker: they've created a kick-ass logo to promote the show. Wieden & Kennedy, 224 NW 13th, 227-2583, Thursday 6-10 pm

Let Inclusion Reign! Blackfish member Vicki Wilson has curated an ambitious and enormous group show of "Portland artists who work in noncommercial mediums" (i.e. every damn artist in town.) Blackfish Gallery, 420 NW 9th Ave, 224-2634
