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.

FINCH LANE GALLERY EXHIBITIONS
March 2 through April 13
Sugar-Coated explores the topic of euphemisms as found in American culture. Euphemistic language ranges from attempting to speak politely about uncomfortable topics to more nefarious attempts to disguise truth and purposely mislead audiences. Topics include bodily functions, body parts, puberty, sex, aging, death, human suffering, politics, religion, and war. Euphemisms are also used to soften the delivery of bad news such as death, loss of employment, or removal of rights or privileges.
The exhibition, co-curated by Holly Cobb and Michelle Montrose Larsen, provides a visual exploration of euphemisms, revealing their effect on our culture, both individually and collectively. With the ever-increasing amount of visual marketing, the ability to identify and decode euphemisms becomes increasingly crucial.
The exhibition will include ten artists whose styles range from traditional still life and figurative paintings to stylized and illustrative drawings, as well as mixed media pieces and photography. Three-dimensional works will include installation, dioramas enclosed in glass, and found object assemblage.
Gallery talks and discussions with the artists will be held on Friday, March 16 from 5:00-6:00 p.m. The opening reception will be from 6:00-9:00 p.m. that evening in conjunction with Gallery Stroll.
