This year during the Art in Bloom Festival, the Rogue Gallery & Art Center opens Eugene Bennett: A Life in Art, an exhibition featuring the art of one of the Rogue Valley’s most loved artists, an influential teacher, and a founder of the Rogue Gallery & Art Center. Numerous works on display were held in the artist’s personal collection and have never before been offered to the public. The public is invited to attend a free RECEPTION held on Friday, May 18 from 5:00pm to 8:00pm during Third Friday in Downtown Medford.
During the Art In Bloom festival weekend, the RGAC will host a Community Mural Project inspired by Eugene Bennett’s creativity and using his art materials. This free art activity invites community members of all ages to create an original collage to be part of a larger mural on display at the Rogue Gallery & Art Center later this year.
The Best of the Best Student Art Show—now in its 27th year—returns to the Rogue Gallery and Art Center (RGAC) as an event that has proven to be enriching and exciting for Rogue Valley high school students, parents, and teachers, while bringing recognition and support to the visual arts. The Main Gallery is literally filled with artwork made by the most talented and creative students from 16 participating Rogue Valley high schools. Each participating art teacher submitted their students’ work for in-district screening, and then brought the selected work to Rogue Gallery and Art Center for judging by professional artists. Nearly 150 individual artworks including paintings, drawings, collage, illustrations, sculpture, ceramics, and woodwork will be on display beginning on Friday, April 20 with a reception from 4:00 until 8:00pm. The show runs through Friday, May 4, 2012. The community is invited and encouraged to attend. Many thanks to the 2012 Best of the Best program sponsors Lithia Motors, and Harry and David.Read More
