Carol Rose Art Exhibit to Benefit CATS

Art du Jour Gallery and Committed Alliance to Strays (CATS), located at 104 N. Ross Lane in  Medford, have teamed up to present a special exhibit of abstract artwork by the late Carol Rose. The Carol Rose art exhibit to benefit CATS will be on display for the month of June 2016.  Mrs. Rose was a talented painter and longtime art teacher at Crater High and other local schools.  Her other great passion was rescuing stray cats.  In this endeavor Mrs. Rose was aided for years by CATS, a non-profit organization dedicated to finding good homes for strays and providing a loving home for cats until they are adopted.

The shelter runs strictly on donations and fundraisers.  The facility has been struggling to keep its doors open with reduced budgets and a lagging economy.  In honor of Mrs. Rose’s nurturing dedication to helping stray cats, her husband, Bill Rose, donated more than 100 of her paintings to the C.A.T.S. organization, eleven of which are now on display at Art du Jour Gallery.  Seventy-five percent of the sales of the artwork will directly benefit the C.A.T.S. non-profit facility.

Visit Art du Jour Gallery at 213 E. Main Street in Medford during June to view this special benefit exhibit.  Hours are 10-4, Tuesday through Saturday, and 5-8 p.m. on Friday, June 17th.  (541) 770-3190.
