The Rogue Gallery & Art Center will feature a variety of activities during downtown Medford’s Art in Bloom festival, including art projects for children and adults, art contests, and an exciting exhibit.
“Eugene Bennett and Friends: His Personal Art Collection”, opens the weekend of the festival. This exhibit includes the work of other artists that Bennett collected, as well as favorites of his own work. Works include paintings, drawings, monoprints, and sculptures.
Southern Oregon Subaru will display a new Subaru in front of the Rogue Gallery to inspire attendees to create art based on the theme of “Where would you take this Subaru?” Art supplies will be available for participants to paint or draw wherever their imagination takes them. Prizes will be awarded in three categories: children (up to 10 years old), youth (11 – 15 years old), and adults (15+). Jurors will choose the best work in each category and winners will receive free tuition for a Summer Art Camp of their choice in the children’s and youth categories, and a gift certificate in the adult division.
Children can make their mothers a special gift of paper flowers in the Rogue Gallery garden. Instructors will be there to assist children in creating these colorful, delightful works. The art studio will also be open for creating art. Rogue Gallery will provide all needed supplies.
All activities are free to the public.
