Scott Fife: The Idaho Project
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
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
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 - Exhibition Views
Sounds of Silk: Instruments and Textiles from Silk Road Cultures - Exhibition Views
A Celebration of Cultural Diversity. Exhibit curated by Eastern Arts for the Salt Lake Art Center. 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. Exhibition held in the Education Gallery space., Digital image files converted from Raw file format to TIFF using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Bridge.
Soy Un Testigo/ I Am Witness: Contemporary Latino Art
Soy Un Testigo/ I Am Witness: Contemporary Latino Art
"Soy Un Testigo" is an exhibit of twenty-four contemporary paintings, sculpture, and prints by ten individual artists and one installation group. It provides a rare opportunity for people in Utah to experience original visual works by some of this country's finest contemporary talent. It gives us the opportunity to "hear what the Latino artists are saying. To hear them with our eyes and with our imagination," as distinguished Mexican author Octavio Paz Said of another contemporary Latino art exhibit ten years ago ("Hispanic Art in the United States: 30 Contemporary Painters and Sculptors")., TIFF image scanned at 600 dpi from the original using an Epson Expression 10000 XL scanner.

Spy Hop Productions: Sonic Squeeze - Exhibition Views
Spy Hop Productions: Sonic Squeeze - Exhibition Views
Cooperate. Communicate. Collaborate. Buzz words of the 21st Century. At Spy Hop Productions, collaborate is a word students often get sick of hearing, but it’s an idea so ingrained in the way Spy Hop works, that staff and students can’t imagine a day without it. Art is interdependent. In that spirit, consider SONIC SQUEEZE a collaboration test, a 21st century mash-up of video games, drum machines and tone makers. Play the game to create sounds from one of three stations – but work together with other participants to get all three games to create your own song. A digital media experiment, SONIC SQUEEZE invites visitors to play an interactive game that celebrates the collaborative nature of everything Spy Hop does. Exhibition held in the New Genres Gallery space., Digital image files converted from Raw file format to TIFF using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Bridge.

Stephanie Wilde: Harmed
Stephanie Wilde: Harmed
Stephanie Wilde: Harmed is about the greed of the few, and its devastating effects on the many. Through the delicate beauty of her intimately detailed ink, acrylic, and gold leaf paintings, Stephanie Wilde examines past and recent events that have resulted in a crisis of confidence in our corporate leaders and economic system. Depicting the debauchery and excess of those in power, Harmed is about loss: moral, financial, and perhaps most disheartening, loss of faith in the corporate world. Exhibition held in the Street Gallery space., Digital image files converted from Raw file format to TIFF using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Bridge.
Stephen Schultz: Paintings and Drawings
Stephen Schultz: Paintings and Drawings
In viewing this exhibition, what is immediately apparent is that Schultz's paintings are over the top in the best sense of dramatic presentation. The scale of the largest paintings seem bigger than life, setting for mythic narration, where no painted form or gesture is lacking in meaning. If we equate these paintings to that of the theatrical stage, then his props are those of the painter's studio of the dream, and the painted gestures are those of the evolution of the self and the yearning for human interconnectedness. Exhibition held in the Main Gallery space., TIFF image scanned at 600 dpi from the original using an Epson Expression 10000 XL scanner. PDF created with Adobe Acrobat.
