Hayden White // Trishelle Jeffery
Hayden White shares the following about his upcoming Finch Lane exhibition, “Pushing and pulling the boundaries of interaction and emotion, these happenings have commitment in the intimate act portrayed. Difficult to wrap the intention to anything other than becoming lost. To become part of these moments could lead to disassociation. Full of cartoon expression, no matter the state of their face, they all share the void of their structure. Have fun.”
Trishelle Jeffery is a printmaker, comics artist, and educator with a B.F.A. and M.F.A. in Printmaking from the University of Utah and Wichita State University respectively. For over a decade her largely autobiographical work has seen critical praise in exhibitions and residencies throughout the nation, including multiple viewings and a solo exhibit at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art. She is currently Foundations Coordinator for the Department of Visual Art and Design at Weber State University.

Sheryl Gillilan & Roxanne Bartel // Pablo Ayala
Sheryl Gillilan & Roxanne Bartel
Sheryl Gillilan is an award-winning quilt artist who sees inspiration for quilt ideas everywhere – tile floors, rugs, graphic and modern art, landscapes, and architecture. She uses cotton and silk fabrics, both commercial and hand-dyed, to provide a variety of colors, textures, and patterns in her quilts.
Roxanne Bartel has been a quilt artist for over 25 years. She studied painting in college, and while experimenting with painting on fabric, she made the transition to quilting as an art form. She creates her own palette of altered fabric through dyeing, bleaching, painting, and resists, and frequently uses silk kimono as a base for overdyeing because of its superior quality and woven designs.
Pablo Ayala was born in Guadalajara-Mexico and raised in Utah since the age of five. He is currently in his third year at the University of Utah double majoring in Biomedical-Engineering and Fine Arts Painting-and-Drawing. Ayala explores the intersections between his Mexican/American heritage, and has recently begun exploring the long-lasting impacts of the Spanish colonization of Mexico in his latest series La Malinche. His artwork integrates multi-media portraiture framed by naturalistic environments that create a story with the South American themes of magic realism.

Trent Call & Clint Call // Alise Anderson
Trent Call & Clint Call
Trent Call was Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. He is actively involved in a diversity of
ongoing projects. Trent’s work combines formal academic painting, comics, graffiti, and popular
culture. He currently works out of CAPTAIN CAPTAIN Studios in SLC.
Clint Call also graduated from the U of U and earned an MFA in sculpture from Montana State in
1977. He creates whimsical sculptures out of wood, sometimes incorporating kinetic elements
to promote a quirky narrative and sense of discovery.
Alise Anderson’s exhibition will explore the idea of funeral gifts. The funeral gift is an invitation to community members to ask themselves “What kind of gift would I give away at my own funeral?” Inspired by her Grandma Trudy, who made hundreds of needlepoints to be given away at her funeral, Anderson takes on the role of facilitator to help people make their own funeral gift. Spanning many mediums, ages, and interpretations; Funeral Gift invites you to think about your own personal legacy and what you might leave behind after you say goodbye before you have to say goodbye.
