Finch Lane Gallery
The Salt Lake City Arts Council, located in Reservoir Park, programs visual arts exhibits year-round in the Finch Lane Gallery. Artist are invited to apply for exhibits annually. Typically, the applications are made available in January and due back to the Arts Council in March.
The exhibition program is designed to give local artists an opportunity to show their current body of work. The application process includes a thorough and competitive review by the Visual Arts Committee of the Salt Lake City Arts Council, with members from the board of directors and visual artists from the community.
Both one-person shows and group exhibits are considered. The quality of work, as evidenced by images of previous work submitted with the application, a range of styles and media, and a balanced exhibition season are among the criteria considered in the application review process.

Salt Lake City–The Salt Lake City Arts Council is pleased to present artists Paul Reynolds and Deborah Durban in exhibitions at the Finch Lane Gallery September 28 through November 16, 2018.
In his newest collection of line paintings, artist Paul Reynolds says his latest work is extremely personal and stripped down. “Applying paint in thin washes on large birch panels, I develop a surface that has no obvious strokes or clear shapes, making gradual color shifts. Near the end of the painting, I add one or more blind-drawn lines with a thick drawing pencil. This line is the result of some physical movement and acts as a record of an action: spinning, running, switching pencil hands behind my back. Each line is drawn without looking at the surface, lending the line a certain life of its own, almost out of control, with a physical charge and weight.”
Kith and Kin is the latest set of collaged portraits from mixed media artist Deborah Durban. The artist notes she has always searched for a non-traditional portrait technique that’s both fun and enthralling; her latest collage presentation embodies these characteristics. “I have found that this collage medium enables me to work freely, experimenting with realism and a more simplified abstracted form in one portrait. This process has also taken me back to childhood memories when I used to make, play and dress paper dolls – with similar feelings and a sense of fun, it is pure enjoyment!”
The exhibitions open with the opening reception on Friday, September 28 from 6:00-9:00 p.m. Gallery talks and discussions with the artist will be held during the opening reception and are scheduled at 6:00 p.m. with Deborah Durban and 6:15 p.m. with Paul Reynolds.
