John Vehar Does It Again: The Art Scavenger Hunt Continues

Oops, he did it again. J.E. Vehar-Evanoff made good on his promise to continue his artistic scavenger hunt, occasionally placing a piece of artwork somewhere in the city for a lucky person to find. The idea is that he posts what and where it is – could be an animal, work on paper, political or...

South Salt Lake's Gallery Rock and Roll (and Beer and Art)

South Salt Lake’s Gallery Rock and Roll (and Beer and Art)

“Full Moon Friday.” “Night on Commonwealth.” It all sounds kind of creepy and “Where’s Freddy?” until you know what’s really going down. It’s South Salt Lake’s first time participating in Salt Lake Gallery Stroll and they’re doing it up right. Rock ‘n’ Roll. Food trucks. Beer Garden. So get down to Commonwealth Avenue from 6-10...

Caldiero Channels “Howl” @ 60

“I saw the best minds of my generation” (Janis, Jimi, Jim, Kurt, Amy, the kid who lived around the corner) “destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked, dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix, angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of...

Visions of Grandeur: Art of the National Parks at Split Rock Gallery

Visions of Grandeur: Art of the National Parks at Split Rock Gallery

Last year in June, the University of New Mexico Press published a 432-page coffee table extravaganza devoted to artwork depicting the nation’s national parks, which seems appropriate since it was in large part due to the artwork of nineteenth-century painters and photographers that Congress began passing legislation to protect public lands and to create the...

9th & 9th Art Walk

9th & 9th Art Walk

You know how it goes: it’s the third Friday of the month, you head out for Gallery Stroll, but you can never get to all the places you want to see.  One reason is there are a lot of venues. Another is they are pretty spread out. One solution is to break things up, to...
