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.
NEW FINCH LANE GALLERY EXHIBITION
Artists Amy Fairchild and Naomi Marine
Opening Reception, Friday, March 3, 6-8 p.m.
Salt Lake Gallery Stroll, Friday, March 17, 6-9 p.m.
The Finch Lane Gallery presents artists Amy Fairchild and Naomi Marine in exhibitions March 3 through April 14. An opening reception will be held on Friday, March 3 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Abstract photographer Amy Fairchild focuses on the minimalism of subject matter in her large images. Some call her work “out of focus” as she strives to create simplified images in which viewers can find relaxation. “Color induces a wide range of emotion depending on the hue of the photograph,” says Fairchild. “My photographs should make you fall into them, become part of them, experience them. Minimalism is my way of seeking a simplistic peace.”
Keeping the use of color, but exchanging detail for minimalism, Naomi Marine’s drawings and soft sculptures depict control, organization, and obsessive manipulation. “The combination of seductive and grotesque imagery created within the work hint at the pleasure and revulsion I find our corporeality,” writes Marine. “I imbue surfaces with laborious repetition, distortion, and cumulative patterning to mirror the disruption caused by catalytic interferences in organic systems.”
Two public programs will be held in conjunction with the exhibitions. On Friday, March 3 at 6:30 p.m. Amy Fairchild will present a gallery talk about her work. The second program will be Saturday, March 25. Leaders from the Community Writing Center at Salt Lake Community College will conduct a writing workshop in response to the art in the exhibitions. The workshop is from 2:00-3:30 p.m. Both events are free of charge.
