Art du Jour Gallery, 213 E. Main Street in Medford, is an artists cooperative featuring the works of 17 local artists. We’ve made the appropriate modifications to ways we safely showcase our members’ artwork. First, because floorspace limits our capacity for gatherings, we must limit the amount of people standing within our confines at any one time. Second, 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. Finally, private viewings by reservation are encouraged outside open business hours. To make your reservation, contact the gallery at the phone number above, via

We heard some really sad news from the American Alliance of Museums:

The American Alliance of Museums (AAM), the only organization representing the entire scope of the museum community, warned that one out of every three museums may shutter forever as funding sources and financial reserves run dry. Without near-term assistance from governments and private donors, hundreds of directors reported their museums may not survive the financial crisis brought on by the pandemic.

We feel very fortunate that our museum is relatively stable. We have a small footprint, only two paid staff, and fairly
