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.

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.

Art du Jour student art show entry…

Art du Jour Gallery, 213 E. Main Street in Medford eagerly anticipates a return of Charity Hubbard’s student art exhibit in June, which became a major downtown event for our small gallery last year.  Due to the popular nature of this exhibit we will hold back from providing musical entertainment for our June Third Friday celebration, primarily for space and noise considerations.

The “People’s Choice” photography contest has gone off as planned and a big thanks to all who stopped by our gallery during Art in Bloom to vote on their favorite artwork. The exhibit remains on display and the results will be announced at the end of May and posted on Facebook (www.facebook.com/ArtduJourGallery).
