Annelise Duque & Gwen Davis-Barrios: Homes and Graves and Gardens at Finch Lane

Salt Lake City
Aug. 13 – Sep. 24

Finch Lane Gallery
54 Finch Lane, Salt Lake City, UT. G

Gallery hours are 9:30am-8:30pm Tuesdays, 9:30am-5pm Wednesdays & Thursdays. There will be an artist reception on Friday August 20, 6-9pm, open to the public with no RSVP required.

Through photographs and oil paintings, these artists use gardens as a metaphor. Gardens present a tension between wildness and control, and the implication of a gardener or curator. The artists create a place that is in-between realities—a place where they are able to explore alternative universes and a connection to those who have passed on. Duque’s work draws on her Filipino-American heritage. Davis-Barrios explores the nighttime and the multitude of possibilities it presents.

Duque and Davis-Barrios recently received BFAs from Brigham Young University. Duque was awarded a 2021 Visual Arts Fellowship by the Utah Division of Arts & Museums.
