Scott Fife: The Idaho Project
In "The Idaho Project," Seattle artist Scott Fife recreates the Steunenberg murder trial through a series of busts of the characters. Fife explains: "This is a public piece of sculpture, made to engage the viewer and inspire a sense of inquiry, and knowledge. I am working in a classical portrait style, using references to portraiture busts of the Roman Republican era, to portray the participants in this historic early twentieth century event. The Sculptures suggest determination, doubt, anxiety, authority, deceit and inscrutability. It is as if the busts were rediscovered with the passage of time and their origins somewhat unclear." Exhibition held in the Street Level Gallery space., TIFF image scanned at 600 dpi from the original using an Epson Expression 10000 XL scanner. PDF created with Adobe Acrobat.
Skins of Former Life
"As we emerged from the underground each day, we shed our wet, yellow slickers and hung them in baskets high in the dry, the locker room. They looked like figures slumped high above my head. Now in my studio, my slicker hangs high in its basket ...a skin of a former life. On the windowsill, Mrs. Butterworth sits as the motionless matron. Outside, children and garden grow. Not far away, gold is leached by the rainbird." Exhibition held in the Street Level Gallery space., TIFF image scanned at 600 dpi from the original using an Epson Expression 10000 XL scanner.

Sophie Matisse: Be Back in 5 Minutes and Zebra Stripe Paintings
This New York City artist has created paintings that combine a conceptual point of view with historically acknowledged masterpieces from the art of painting. The "Be Back in 5 Minutes" paintings use subtraction as the conceptual device through the elimination of the people and animals from the original compositions, while the "Zebra Stripe" paintings make use of addition by the confluence of two painted realities and the reintroduction of people and animals in the copied museum art. Exhibition held in the Street Level Gallery space., TIFF image scanned at 600 dpi from the original using an Epson Expression 10000 XL scanner. PDF created with Adobe Acrobat.
Sounds of Silk: Instruments and Textiles from Silk Road Cultures
The Silk Road passed through Central Asia, linking China in the east to Iran and the Mediterranean to the west. Connecting pathways went north to Russia and south to India and Afghanistan. Central Asia was inhabited by nomadic and settled peoples whose lives revolved economically around the Silk Road. They also absorbed new ideas and influences through contact with incoming traders, travelers and conquerors. In this exhibition of Central Asian arts, the legacy of the Silk Road is evident in the blending of these foreign ideas with the existing cultural patterns of both nomadic and settled peoples. Exhibit curated by Eastern Arts for the Salt Lake Art Center. Exhibition held in the Education Gallery space., Digital image files converted from Raw file format to TIFF using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Bridge.
