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.

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.

Jud Turner

Oregon artist Jud Turner has been working with found or repurposed objects and welded steel for over 20 years. His work has been featured in hundreds of exhibitions and is in public
