Reception for New Art Exhibits at Rogue Gallery 40 South Bartlett Street Medford Oregon 97501 541-772-8118

Art Reception for new exhibits at the Rogue Gallery on January 19, 2017 Main Gallery exhibit Human Connection: Figurative Paintings by Karen Staal Exhibit date: January 5–February 16, 2018

Working in oil and acrylic, Ashland artist Karen Staal creates figurative paintings. She refines the figures to their essence, creating new harmonies with line, shape, and color. By her use of negative space, she evokes a narrative or relationship that expresses unity and joy.

This exhibit spans several decades of figurative paintings by Karen Staal. Each of the paintings presents the figures as connected and one with the canvas. Serene swimmers by the pool, jazz musicians at their instruments, embracing couples, and individuals in quiet contemplation are reverently interpreted, creating paintings of calmness and peace. Karen has exhibited throughout Oregon and California. She holds a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute.

MYSTERIOUS CREATURES: James Deeb, Justin Diggle, and Jud Turner August 5 – September 16, 2016 Reception: Friday, August 19, 5–8pm

“Acrophobia,” by James Deeb

This exhibit features Illinois painter James Deeb, Utah printmaker Justin Diggle, and Eugene sculptor Jud Turner. Inspired by German Expressionism, James Deeb’s thickly textured oil paintings provide a dark satirical commentary on everyday life. Modern society’s pervasive use of surveillance is the central theme of the hauntingly stark black and white etchings of Justin Diggle. Jud Turner uses found objects, welded steel, and re-purposed items to create eerily beautiful assemblage sculptures which reflect the exhilarations and anxieties of industrialized society.
