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 Yidan Guo, Laura Sharp Wilson, and Janiece Murray
Opening Reception, Friday, August 11, 6-9 p.m.
Salt Lake Gallery Stroll, Friday, August 18, 6-9 p.m.
Three new exhibitions open at the Finch Lane Gallery on Friday, August 11. The exhibitions will run through September 22.
Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, an installation by artist Laura Sharp Wilson, presents a language of “accumulated inheritance” to explore the facts of racism, elitism, and classicism in this county’s past and present. Those objects of inheritance include linens, silver, wallpaper, china rugs, and clothing, jewelry, and shoes— items that she believes separate people from one another. Wilson will talk about her work on Friday, August 11 at 6:00 p.m.
Watercolor artist Janiece Murray uses drafting tools such as a compass and straight edge to create geometric patterns and designs for her exhibition Unity and Difference. The circle in her work is seen as a symbol of unity but it can also be the beginning of thousands of geometric designs.
