September 2021 eNews

The museum enjoys varying responses from its visitors. Here are a few examples:

I was with a friend the other day and she told me that she had been to the museum to see our latest exhibit. “Why didn’t you come and see me? I asked. She replied, “You know – it was so peaceful and the art was so wonderful, I really didn’t want to talk.”

Yesterday a couple was here and they had lots of questions. It turns out they thought Gallery One was the museum. (That is a common response from people who say, “we didn’t know you were here.”) They stayed a long time and had an interesting conversation with Kristen about various books in our library.

January 2018 at Art du Jour Gallery NEWEST GALLERY ARTIST Oil Painter John Acosta

Hope and Despair, by John Acosta

Medford artist John Acosta, Art du Jour Gallery’s newest member, is an oil painter whose work is bold, exciting, masculine, and often spiritual in theme. His style is entirely his own. John is self-taught and has been painting in oils for only four years, yet his work shows the passion and innate talent of a painter destined to become a fine artist. We hope you will visit Art du Jour in January and view John’s work. “My Defender” is a dream-like but unmistakable vision of Jesus, “Travertino Façade” is a beautiful and detailed rendering of Rome’s Colosseum, and “Brenda” is a saucy feline with mischief in her eyes. Of the three other oil paintings that complete John’s current display, “Hope and Despair” is the most emotionally engaging.
