Meyer Gallery UP: The Kleinbus Series Show, a collection of works by Argentine artist Santiago H. Michalek.|0| In 2003, Santiago started his own business, restoring vintage models of Volkswagen beetles and buses. Santiago's fondness for VWs compelled him to become a master on the vehicles, with a near encyclopedic knowledge of their makes and models throughout the car company’s history. This love is evident in his paintings. UPCOMING: Cars, Stars and Guitars, 25 new works by Dave Newman. Southwest Art calls his work, "brilliantly saturated, Pop-Art inflected, playful and nostalgic."|1|

Gallery MAR UP: Wherever I May Roam, new works by Lisa Lamoreaux, Gretchen Papka,|2| Ginger Bowen, and Caroline Douglas|3| is a celebration of female artists and their voyages through the art world. Opens Friday, August 5th.

JGO Gallery UP: Sculptures by Vanessa Clarke and prints and paintings by Paul Vincent Bernard.|4| Bernard creates minimalist landscapes -– abstract shapes, paths, and margins inspired by the spare Utah geography -- in which dark monoliths and deep black forms are threaded with slender fissures, edged in loose fast scrawls, and often jutting into only the merest slip of pale horizon (read a review of Bernard's work in the February 2011 edition of 15 Bytes). The lines of Vanessa Clarke's pieces– abstract looping, arching forms made of fused stone– are organic and serene, though the contrasting stones create a geometric feel.|5| Clarke’s sculptures almost always include large portions of negative space in a manner reminiscent of bones– perhaps a nod to the landscape of her native New Mexico.

Kimball Art Center UP: Lori Campbell: Horizons. In this series of thirty contemporary landscape paintings, Lori Campbell focuses on horizons. Campbell is fascinated by the contrast of light and shadows in the sky and on land.|6| By applying thick layers of paint and thin glazes, she builds up rich textures and creates depth in her luminous paintings. AND: In-Betweens: Work by MFA Visual Arts Students from the University of Utah.|7| Participating Artists: Anne Boyer, Van Chu, Jan James, Nick Mendoza, Carmen Paredes, Andrew Rice, Kirsti Ringger, Adelaide Ryder, Heidi Moller Somsen, Tyler Spurgeon. UPCOMING: Works by mentors and residents participating in a 10-day artist-in-residency program |8| (see page 1).

Julie Nester Gallery UP: Geoff Krueger and Brenda Mallory. Geoff Krueger paintings include mountain-scapes and scenes of low clouds hovering over rolling hills.|9| Brenda Mallory creates three-dimensional wall sculptures primarily using waxed cloth, nuts, bolts and steel. Many of her organic sculptures look as if they are alive; resembling a series of flower buds or cell structures.|10|

District Gallery UP: The Toone-Bitner collection, sculptural works from a family of artists.|11|

Silver Queen Fine Art UP: Landscape paintings by Utah artist Aaron Bushnell.|12| Bushnell will be in the galery doing demos during the Park City Arts Festival (Friday from 5:00-9:00pm, Saturday from 9:00am-7:00pm, and Sunday from 9:00am-6:00pm).

UP: Featured and Ethnic Artists from Summerfest International, highlights ethnic artists living in Utah. This year's featured artist is Japanese artist Kiyomi Doi, who now lives in Davis County. Kiomi is well-known in Japan and has received numerous awards for her paintings. Her approach is intuitive as the free forms and creatures she is known for emerge during the painting process. Other featured artists include Yaodong Hu (China), Yevgeniy Zolotsev (Russia), Marie-Helene Glon (France), Rodolfo Juarez (Latino), Ed Napia (New Zealand), Radford Cuch (Native American), Linda L. Shimmin, Van Chu (Viet Nam).

Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art UP: New Acquisitions highlights a selection of the museum's recently acquired artwork. This small exhibit includes photography, sculpture, drawings, and painting including a waterfall mural and a seductive, enlarged shoe.
AND: Bang! Thwack! Plop! %#$&!!! Comics: an Influence on Contemporary Art explores the intersection of comics and art with specific attention on how certain themes and stylistic forms have crossed over from the genre of comics into the world of visual art. This exhibit helps point toward a growing interdisciplinary trend in the arts that allows for a flow of ideas between media and form, creating a liberation of high art.

The Ogden First Fridays Art Walk takes place every month on the First Friday of the month. Galleries will hold receptions 6-9 pm.

Eccles Community Art Center UP: 37th Annual Statewide Competition.

Mary Elizabeth Dee Shaw Gallery (Weber State University) UPCOMING: Edward Burtynsky: The Industrial Sublime. Burtynsky's large-format color photographs explore our impact on the planet. They are seductively beautiful and unnerving at the same time. His work can be found in the collections of many major museums, including Bibliotèque Nationale in Paris and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
