Third Friday art walk in Medford
Boni de'Laire Kettering says she had "cozy" and Diamond Lake in mind when she painted "Mountain Lodge."
The painting depicts a small, snow-covered cabin surrounded by forest at the base of a colossal mountain. Smoke rises from the cabin's chimney, and light pouring from the windows is reflected in a nearby stream.
This and similar scenes will be featured in Art du Jour's exhibit, "Winterscapes," to be displayed through January at the gallery, 213 E. Main St.. There will be a reception with warm refreshments from 5 to 8 p.m. during the Third Friday art walk Jan. 20.
Nearly 10 gallery artists submitted winterscapes for the exhibit, including Cammy Davis, Ginny Matheson, Georganna Happle, Dixie Kinser, Judy Hubler, Margo Garnett, Dick Woods and Marilyn Zupan.
Next month, the gallery will feature a Mardi Gras-themed exhibit. Call 541-770-3190 or see www.artdujourgallery.com.
Rogue Gallery & Art Center will continue to display "Trio," an exhibit of art by Virginia Andrade of Grants Pass, Robert Buelteman of Montara, Calif., and the artistic team of Wendy and April Hill of Medford and Sunriver, respectively.
Andrade creates vibrant, abstract compositions using nonabsorbent paper and watercolors. Buelteman has devised his own method of camera-free photography by placing botanical subjects on color-transparency film and then exposing them to light and electricity using a specialized easel.
Wendy and April Hill have created a whimsical, suspended installation, titled "String Things at the Multiplex." The exhibit includes 1,000 colorful, abstract paintings framed in photographic slide mounts. The tiny images are strung together with yarn and electrical wire interconnected with beads and small trinkets.
"Trio" will be displayed through Feb. 10 at the gallery, 40 S. Bartlett St. Call 541-772-8118 or see www.roguegallery.org.
