A Invitation from Silvia Trujillo to Paint en Plein Air!

Paschal's Winery plein air painting by Silvia Trujillo

Hello there artist friends,

Now that summer is coming to an end, here’s a chance to sharpen your painting skills and enjoy the remaining warmth before Fall and Winter set in. Hosted by the Rogue Gallery, a workshop in plein air painting is being offered for beginners to advanced artists who would like to learn more about atmospheric perspective, how light effects color, and how to compare values for accuracy. We will be painting Table Rock and Rogue River at a location near Tou Velle Park in Medford on Sat, Sept 23 from 10am -4pm. I promise a fun and informative time for all… join us if you can 😉

Also coming up is a plein air workshop hosted by The Lassen Art Center in Shingletown, CA. This location is at the base of Lassen National Park which is a great place to visit

Queen Print by Doug Wallace at Art du Jour Gallery Salon March 2017

March 2017 at Art du Jour Gallery

Doug Wallace’s Eclectic Art, Connie Fribance’s Oils, and “Discovering Southern Oregon” Contest Art on Display!

During March 2017 at Art du Jour Gallery, we continue our presentation of guest artist Doug Wallace’s eclectic realm of Byzantine queens and mythical maidens. “Looking back down the tunnel of time,” Doug says, “scrolling through the historical archives of what has interested me artistically for most of my life, I always find a bit of the fantastic in all that I do…and nothing is ever completely realistic.”

His art eludes conventional description. “The inspirational references for my paintings are many: Gothic, Pre-Raphaelite, Byzantine, religious icons, mythology, fairytales, book illustrators, and dreams. Surrealism has also played a part in my creative thinking.” He says, however, that if he were forced to categorize his paintings, he might call them “Eclectic Romanticism, or Theatrical Gothic.”
