Fun in the New Year

Happy New Year! I hope you are all having a wonderful 2023 so far! I just wanted to pop on here and share a few fun things that we’ve been doing 🙂

First of all, we have an exciting event for one of our artists this Friday- Tyler is participating in the partners program with Art Access again, and the opening reception for his show is this Friday the 13th! This past year, he has been working with local artist Cat Palmer to work on incorporating photography into his artwork using some of her unique and interesting mixed media techniques. He’s been having a blast and is really looking forward to sharing with the community what they’ve been working on. If you want to attend, the event is from 6-8 pm this Friday the 13th at the Bountiful Davis Art Center (90 N Main Street, Bountiful). Here’s a link with some more info about the show: ​

Now for some random samplings of what we’ve been up to 🙂 Did you guys know that the Salt Lake City Library has a giant chess set that anyone can play with? Well, they do, and the last time we went to the library, it was a showdown between Tyler and Chris. It looked like it was heading Tyler’s way, but we ultimately had to leave before he could finish Chris off, so it was a draw. But super fun!

We’ve been having a lot of fun in our paper art classes lately. We’ve especially been enjoying projects that collage with tissue paper. We’ve gotten some really neat projects using those types of techniques, and although they take awhile (usually our artists don’t finish during class and have to continue working on it later in the day), they are a lot of fun and turn out great!

Next up, we are getting ready for our next art stroll! The opening reception for our new exhibit will be next Friday the 20th from 6-9 pm. The featured artist this month is Jessi, and she has a few great pieces to show off- we hope to see some of you there!
