Favorite Art

In November, the Art du Jour Gallery will present a show of the Gallery artists’ favorite
works. Here are selections from Dixie Kinser and Doug Staples.


Dixie Kinser

“My friend, Dodie Hamilton, and I were on an Egyptian tour when the revolution broke
out. It was known as Arab Spring. Wars started in Syria as well as Egypt. From our
room, we could see protesters trying to cross the Nile and being pushed back with tear
gas by armed soldiers defending the bridge. Protesters picked up the canisters and
threw them in the Nile. We could smell the gas in our room. We were evacuated the
next day.”

Doug Staples

“’The End of Democracy’ is my favorite artwork because it shows the fragility of our
democracy and the frustration and terror associated with the overthrow of a govern-
ment. I painted this right after the January 6th assault on our Capitol.”

Salon Artist Andre Satie

“Shining Mountains II,” by Andre Satie


“I grew up in my dad’s sign shop in the days of hand-lettered signage, and to this day, there are
few aromas that I love more than the smell of ‘turps’. My first competition gained a First Place
in oil and Best of Show. A few months later, a tiny 2″ silver sculpture mounted on a block of
wood took Second Place in sculpture at the Monterey Jazz Festival. Feeling validated, I took
the plunge onto the road marked Artist and never looked back.

“Today, after some 60 years of plying the brush, my happy place is still in the studio. The work
of my heart has found collectors, personal and corporate, in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Ger-
many, Norway, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico…. and who knows where else my paintings have land-
ed over time.”

Art du Gallery June 2021 Exhibits

SOAR member Art du Jour Gallery in June 2021 hosts the annual Charity Hubbard Student Show. Charity Hubbard has been a professional and fine artist for over 20 years, and teaches small classes that take a classical approach to art. In the month of June, several of her student’s works will be displayed and for sale in the Main Gallery and the Featured Artist areas. Charity Hubbard’s own works will be featured in the Salon from June 1 until July 31st.

Times will be set up for our 3rd Friday visitors so we do not have too many guests in the gallery at one time. This will help our past overcrowding issues with the families of the students. 

June 1 – June 30
Charity Hubbard Student Show

Charity Hubbard is a local professional artist and private art instructor who runs the Rogue Classical Atelier. The emphasis in these classes is through classical tradition: concepts, exercises, and instruction that builds in a logical and effective order.

Times will be set up for our 3rd Friday visitors so we do not have too many guests in the gallery at one time. This will help our past overcrowding issues with the families of the students. Please contact the gallery for details.

Featured Salon Artist Charity Hubbard

Charity Hubbard has been a professional and fine artist for over 20 years. She lives in South- ern Oregon and finds much inspiration around her in landscape and people. The practice of frequently painting from life on location “en plein air” is important to Charity. She feels that the regular exercise of painting from life enables her to better capture life, light and a truer sense of atmosphere.

“Each moment is a gift and a place in time that will never happen again, perhaps similar to how an historian might feel, it’s a privilege to persevere in portraying the spirit of a moment through visual expression to the best of my ability.”

Art du Jour Gallery is an artist’s cooperative featuring the works of 17 local artists. The gallery has been making the appropriate modifications to how we safely showcase our members’ art- work. Since floorspace limits our capacity for gatherings, we must limit the amount of people standing within our confines at any one time. However, in the event we reach our capacity of 10, we will provide a drink of cold water and a place to sit and visit with one of our friendly artists until space allows.

Private Viewings

Private viewings are by reservation only and are encouraged outside open business hours. Please contact the gallery at (541) 770-3190, through [email protected], or by contacting your favorite Art du Jour artist.
