Randall Lake’s affinity for the 1900s, combined with his formal European art training and his love for antiques, fine art, his studios in Paris and at the Guthrie in Salt Lake City make him a man who should have been born in another century. While teaching English as a lecturer at the Sorbonne, he heard of the reputation of portrait painter Alvin Gittens at the University of Utah, where he eventually made his way to study. The most popular subjects of Randall’s paintings are teacups, flowers, and portraits. He tells us, “I am presently working towards a one-man show to be held in my Salt Lake studio, April 2015. The exhibit will be comprised of recent paintings of Paris, landscapes of Sanpete County, and various other works.”
Every January we check in with Utah artists to see what the new year holds in store for them.
