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 exhibit remains on display and the results will be announced at the end of May and posted on Facebook (www.facebook.com/ArtduJourGallery).
