Fat Phobia at Art Access

Fat Phobia at Art Access

  The world is awash with proverbial sayings about beauty — it’s in the eye of the beholder or only skin deep.

Deceptively Simple: Laurel Caryn’s History of Photography at Alice Gallery

For generations of non-millennial students, the slide library, darkened lecture hall and distinctive hum and click of the slide projector were hallmarks of the educational experience.

Despite my best efforts, I was running late to Mudson, a works in progress series presented by loveDANCEmore. As I rushed into the lobby of Sugar Space, my eyes just barely caught the long limbs of a dancer, clad in relaxed rehearsal clothes, finishing a swooping movement and coming to rest in a wide stance....

And they are sweet to the first taste, seductive to the...

Matter of Scale: Dave Malone Goes Big at Phillips Gallery

When Dave Malone exhibited at Salt Lake’s Phillips Gallery two years ago, his two-dimensional works were small to midsize, abstract pieces that measured anywhere from a foot square to a standard 26” x 40” sheet of watercolor paper.

The Remains of Lost Time: Laura Hope Mason’s Extinct

The sister fields of archaeology and paleontology share the near-impossible aim of putting eons of earth’s time into human perspective. The movement and scale of time are notoriously difficult for people to understand, but facing the physical remnants of plants, animals, and early humans brings millions of years into a more relatable focus.
