Art du Jour June Reopening 213 E. Main Street Medford, OR 97501 (541) 770-3190 TEMPORARY HOURS Tues – Sat., NOON – 4PM

Art du Jour Gallery, 213 E. Main Street in Medford, is cautiously moving ahead in reopening our artist’s cooperative with modifications to ways we safely showcase our members’ artwork. With respect for all, we want the volunteers who sit in our gallery to be safe. Therefore, we ask that everyone wear a mask when entering the gallery. We also recognize that floorspace limits our capacity for gatherings, therefore must regretably cancel all monthly Third Friday events for the foreseeable future. Private viewings by reservation are encouraged outside open business hours by contacting the gallery at the phone number above, by contacting your favorite artist, or through email at: [email protected]

For June we are bringing back the popular student art show known as: Charity Hubbard and Associates. See

Curtis Keeler Featured Artist at South Stage Cellars

Curtis Keeler Gallery Exhibit Announcement

Curtis Keeler Featured Artist at South Stage Cellars

SOAR member Curtis Keeler is the featured artist for June at South Stage Cellars in Jacksonville. His mixed media paintings are dimensional, colorful, and have a consistent dose of humor you will love. We adore the way he lifts key elements off the canvas by rendering them with recycled bits of metal. See them for yourself — Join him for a reception on 6/13! The Cellar’s receptions are generally from 5:30 – 8pm, but you might want to call to make sure.

South Stage Cellars is located at 125 S. 3rd Street in Jacksonville, Oregon. You can call them at 541-899-9120. Contact Curtis at 541-621-0667.
