The Year Was 2003 …


The year was 2003, and the Salt Lake Gallery Association was celebrating 20 years of Gallery Stroll.

In Ogden, Gallery 25, a co-op gallery which had launched in 2002, was joined by Artstop Ogden.

Terra Nova opened in Provo.

In Salt Lake City’s Millcreek neighborhood, Evergreen Art and Frame built a new space for exhibitions.

Bingham Gallery moved from Sugar House to downtown Salt Lake City. Karen Horne opened Horne Fine Art downtown as well. And Left Bank became New Visions.

Not content with the traditional gallery model, artists were taking things to the streets in SLC with Mainly Art.

Our Hints ‘n’ Tips feature was discussing other ways artists could expose themselves. (Granted this was back in the day when we would talk to you about the importance of postcards rather than social media.)

We launched our Inside the Vault series. And became crime fighters when we helped publicize the theft of a painting by Stewart Anstead (and were responsible for its recovery two years later!)

Our Artist Profiles celebrated artists from across the state:
Kamille Corry
Ben Behunin
Holly Mae Pendergast
Brandon Cook
Shanna Kunz
Karen Andrews
Robert Marshall
Lisa Oliver
John Moore
Lisa Oliver
Kent Rigby

And we continued to cover exciting exhibitions by artists like James Christensen, Royden Card and Brian Christensen
