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.

The Salt Lake City Arts Council is pleased to present artists Justin Chouinard and Trent Alvey in exhibitions at the Finch Lane Gallery August 10 through September 21, 2018.
In Appendages of Sense, Justin Chouinard, captures moments of life in his exhibition of hand-manipulated photos. “Among the alienation of family gatherings, in the celebrations and icons of hosting, cameras held by attendees served as eyes and recording devices. Stages moments and improvised gestures. Items seen worthy of acceptance by connected posterity for them to contemplate and meditate on. For whom are the ghosts present?”
In her exhibition, I’m Floating in a Most Peculiar Way, Trent Alvey explores the beginnings of life in the Great Salt Lake and the continuity of self-organizing intelligence in both biological and non-biological systems. Alvey explains, “Life seems so improbable, suddenly instead of nothing there is something. The Great Salt Lake ecosystem is a link between understanding life on Earth and life in the universe.” Alvey’s installation is an interdisciplinary art/biology project in collaboration with professor Bonnie Baxter from Westminster College.
The exhibitions open on Friday, August 10, with the opening reception on Friday, August 17 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 Justin Chouinard and 6:15 p.m. with Trent Alvey. An additional gallery talk will be held on Friday, September 14 at 7:00 p.m. with Trent Alvey and Dr. Bonnie Baxter, Westminster College biology professor, to talk about their collaborative project of Art & Science: Extremophiles on Mars and Why I’m Working with NASA at the Great Salt Lake.
