If You Really Wanted to Get Me Something … Colour Maisch, Connie Borup, Darryl Erdmann

I’ve been thinking about Colour Maisch’s porcelain pieces ever since I saw them at Current Work in the fall. Not sure why. Maybe because they remind me of a philosopher’s stone (as in the Chinese Gongshi, not as in Harry Potter). I just think I’d like to look at them for a long while. Sculpture isn’t cheap, though (Go big or go home, is how I’m feeling this year), and I don’t really hang with a wealthy crowd, so, here’s what I’m thinking: she’s got a show going up at the Kimball In Park City on December 9. Hang out in their parking lot next week and while she’s loading the pieces in and out …

There it is, I think, made it to its destination. Where it should be. 
If you go to SaltGrass Printmakers (412 South 700 West), you can find one.

If You Really Wanted to Get Me Something … Jennifer Rasmusson & Erin Margot

If recent weather is any indication, I don’t think we’ll have to dream of a white Christmas. Bing Crosby’s wishes will likely be a reality for Utah residents. While I love the winter wonderland, I have to admit the icy forecast has me dreaming of spring florals. With that being said, what I want for Christmas is some unique floral works by local artists.
Jennifer Rasmusson was just featured in her newest solo exhibition at ‘A’ Gallery in Salt Lake City.

Episode Two of Art Elevated, Changes at loveDANCEmore, Beth Krensky, Aisha Lehmann

loveDANCEmore announces that Arin Lynn will replace Samuel Hanson as editor of the dance publication. “As I leave the position, I would like to thank our talented writers, as well as the artists whose work we’ve catalogued and critiqued in over 250 articles, reviews and digest pieces,” Hanson writes in a press release. “I also want to thank the many photographers who volunteer their time to document dance — both for our publication and for dance companies and independent producers across our state. If you haven’t already, I encourage you to take a look at our virtual exhibition, Through the Eyes of a Dancer, a collaboration with the Utah Division of Arts and Museums. We hope to present this exhibition, which celebrates Utah dance photography, in a gallery show in 2023 or 2024.”
