June 2019 Third Friday

Art du Jour Gallery, 213 E. Main Street in Medford eagerly anticipates a return of Charity Hubbard’s student art exhibit for our Third Friday reception on June 21st, 5-8 pm.  Despite an earlier announcement that our musical entertainment would be held back for this months’ event, due to popular demand we have scheduled classical guitarist Rod Petrone to perform for the evening.

Featured Guest Artist Charity Hubbard in Salon June and July

Frequently painting from life on location “en plein air” and people from life is important to Charity Hubbard.  She feels that the regular exercise of painting from life enables her to better capture life, light and a truer sense of atmosphere, even when painting from life is not possible.

Still life by Charity Hubbard.

“It is a joy to find inspiration in the challenge of capturing life as it happens, attempting to be true to the mood and nature of what is in front of me.” Charity states on her website.  “Each moment is a gift and a place in time that will never happen again, it’s a privilege to persevere in portraying the spirit of a moment in visual expression to the best of my ability.”

With a background in commercial art for Pixel Productions Inc. (a commercial art and design company), she is trained in perspective and drafting, has illustrated by commission for architects and builders and rendered technical yet artistic architectural illustrations in a variety of mediums.  Her enjoyment of architectural elements is reflected in many of her paintings as well.  Current art pursuits gravitate towards fine art oil paintings of people, landscape and architecture and teaching.  She is also a member of Southern Oregon Society of Artists.

For more information on this artist go to her website at: www.charityhubbard.com

Student Art Show Featured Throughout the Gallery

This is Charity Hubbard’s 11th year of offering small classes that take a classical approach to art.  She has taught in conference workshops and currently offers classes to youth ages 10 and up, teens and adults, rotating in subjects of study.  Her classes are small, 6-10 students each, taught with the aid of an intern assistant, allowing for much individual instruction from Charity.  She also offers a more intensive program where student interns can study with her for 16-18 hours a week and earn a certificate with completion of the program.

Last years’ student art show on Third Friday was the largest turnout AdJ has ever seen, with all indications that the reception this year could be just as popular. We invite the community to stop by on June 21st for the event, or throughout the month during regular gallery hours to see what these gifted students are producing.

Calling All Rogue Valley Artists!!!

Art du Jour is still actively seeking new artists living in the Rogue Valley region who would like to join our co-operative and display their work to the Medford community. Membership includes an active role in the Art in Bloom festival in May, as well as our monthly Third Friday event. Media to be juried for membership includes pottery, sculpture, photography and jewelry.  Contact the gallery by email at [email protected], or log into our website (www.artdujourgallery.com) for full membership information.

June 2019

News & Updates

G. Lewis Clevenger honored with Governor’s Office exhibition, NEA spring grants announced and upcoming grant deadlines!

Beaverton student wins Congressional Art Competition

Congratulations to Jennie Cho, a freshman at Westview High School in Beaverton, on winning the Congressional Art Competition for Northwest Oregon – Congresswoman Susan Bonamici’s district.
Her winning entry, “Suffocating,” was selected by a panel of artists including Brian Rogers, executive director of the Arts Commission. Jennie and her work will be recognized along with other national winners at a ceremony in Washington, DC, and will be displayed for one year at the U.S. Capitol.
“I was very impressed by the many beautiful and provocative entries,” says Congresswoman Bonamici. “The arts have a bright future in Oregon!”

G. Lewis Clevenger exhibits “Moving On” in the Governor’s Office at state Capitol

Portland artist G. Lewis Clevenger exhibits “Moving On” in the Governor’s Office of the Capitol Building in Salem through July 25. Clevenger paints abstract compositions with bold colors and overlapping, softly geometric forms.
To him, painting each piece is a give-and-take process that takes time:
“The paintings develop as I ‘push’ the mark making and the canvas pushes back in response,” he says. “The colors and composition shift and settle in as the painting progresses. My paintings develop and change daily.”
The final works both reveal and hide these storied layers, inviting the viewer’s eye to return to the lines and colors again and again, searching for a meaning that is just out of reach.

CHICAGO –– Woman Made Gallery (WMG) is proud to present “Dear Earth,” a group exhibition in partnership with Openlands and Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods.

“‘Dear Earth . . .’ illuminates the critical voices of women in this moment of environmental crisis. Now, more than ever, we need bold action for our planet. Counter to the common doom-and-gloom narrative, ‘Dear Earth . . .’ inspires our hearts and minds through celebration, hope, and empowerment as we face the challenges of the Anthropocene.”    — Catherine Game

Surface and Structures: Paintings by Cammy Davis and Sculpture by Nadine Gay

May 10 – June 21, 2019

The last day to view this very popular exhibit is June 21.

 

Cammy Davis Give Me One Reason

Cammy Davis, Give Me One Reason, Acrylic

The Surface and Structures exhibit features abstract artist Cammy Davis and sculptor Nadine Gay. Cammy Davis paints bold large abstract acrylic paintings. Nadine Gay is a multi-media artist who creates whimsical and contemplative ceramic figurative sculptures. The exhibit is a juxtaposition of large, textured, color enriched canvases with sculpture that is figurative, spiritual, and at times delicate. Each artists’ work is beautifully complemented by the other.

 

Cammy Davis is a Jacksonville artist who has been featured at fine art galleries between Seattle and Palm Springs. She has developed art tutorial videos and music art videos. Cammy studied fine art at the University of Idaho and has a degree in Interior Design from Bellevue College in Washington. Cammy has been deeply influenced by her childhood experiences of growing up in the woods. She spent her youth making sword fern teepees and treehouses from material of the land. The lifestyle was simple and creative. Her youth instilled in her a resourceful and creative spirit that is present in her abstract paintings. She resides in Jacksonville.

 

Nadine Gay was born and raised in France and came to the United States in the 1970’s. She holds a Bachelors of Fine Art from the Pratt Institute. Nadine has taught art in various programs from kindergarten to college, prisons to psychiatric hospitals, and classes for adults. In 2016, she retired from teaching art and moved to the Rogue Valley to concentrate on her art. She describes her work as a playful conversation between her dreams, images and the materials she uses to create. Her work is often process oriented, as Nadine explains, “Stories emerge, the child in me delights in what comes to life. My work connects me with a fantasy world, a waking dream-space.” She has exhibited in France and throughout the US.

Refreshments from Harry & David will be served at the reception.
