Terrain 9 | A week before the free, all-ages community art show kicks off, co-founder Luke Baumgarten says he and his Terrain team feel ahead of the game. Now moving into the ninth year of the show, it makes sense they have the process down, even if they're still scrambling to find space for everything. "This is our largest by quite a bit, too," Baumgarten says. "The crazy thing about this year is way more artists than ever submitted — 120 more than last year."

This year's show features 341 pieces of art by 200 artists. Along with the usual film displays, literary readings and hilarity from local comedians, the event adds dance performances to the roster, including everything from modern to krump styles. Headlining the music stage is Seattle hip-hop trio Brothers From Another, who previously showed off their boy-band dance moves and sunshine-like raps at this year's Volume. Rounding out the music lineup are Techtax, Powerbleeder, Local Pavlov, Griffey, Forest Fires and DJ JG. (LAURA JOHNSON) Oct. 7, 5 pm-midnight

Leslie Barlow | Work by this fall's artist-in-residence at Whitworth consists primarily of large-scale figurative oil paintings that explore issues related to multiculturalism, "otherness" and identity. Some of her current work examines what it's like to grow up as a multicultural female in the Midwest. Past and recurring themes in her work include challenging and dissecting society, social constructs and gender roles. Barlow lives in Minneapolis, and has a BFA from the University of Wisconsin-Stout and an MFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. (EMILY GOODELL) Oct. 7, 8 am-9 pm; Oct. 8, 10 am-2 pm
