Utah’s emerging artists have a new venue to showcase their work. After relocating to their new space last November, W Communications, a Salt Lake advertising agency, began hanging work in February.
“We are in the creative business, so it just made sense for us to do this”, says Suzanne Winchester, a company spokesperson. The company has demonstrated its commitment to Utah’s fine art community by joining the Salt Lake Gallery Association and participating in their monthly gallery stroll. The W Communications main foyer lends itself to the display of art with plenty of concrete wall space, track lighting and lots of north window light (that look across 300 South to the new Rose Wagner Center).
A more formal policy for screening interested artists is still being formulated, but for now things are pretty loose. The plan is to accept all mediums and styles, with emphasis on Utah artists. An appropriate commission level is still being discussed.
During May’s stroll, the new venue will unveil the work of four artists; Craig Jenkins, Wendy Chidester, Monica Gersezewski and Tom Jackson. Stop by and offer some support for this new effort.
W. Communications is located at 159 West 300 South in Salt Lake. Suzanne Winchester will accept artist inquiries at 801-983-9266 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Plans are for the agency to have information about their fine art program on their website, www.wcommunications.net .
