Rogue Gallery & Art Center's new exhibit looks at familiar places and things in new and interesting ways.
"Hidden in Plain Sight," showing through Thursday, Oct. 3, features photographs by 11 members of the Southern Oregon Photographer's Forum, including Lewis Anderson, Kate Geary, Tom Glassman, Barbara Kackley, Leonard H. Lea, Bobbi Murphy, Diana Standing, Darcie Sternenberg, David Lorenz Winston, Matt Witt and Julie Young.
"They are looking at common things with an aesthetic eye," says Kim Hearon, the gallery's executive director.
An artists' reception with wine, food by Harry & David and cheeses from Rogue Creamery will be from 5 to 8 p.m. during the Third Friday art walk, Sept. 20, at the gallery, 40 S. Bartlett St. Call 541-772-8118 or see www.roguegallery.org.
In her watercolor paintings, Medford artist Judy Hubler captures the sweet innocence of children as they go about their everyday activities. Hubler's paintings, along with bold and elegant, hand-stitched grids by Rogue River artist Susan Eileen Burnes, will be featured this month at Art du Jour Gallery.
Both artists will be present at a reception, held from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday at the gallery, 213 E. Main St. Wine and finger foods will be served. Call 541-770-3190 or see www.artdujourgallery.com.
