Up & Upcoming: Salt Lake Area
Up & Upcoming This Month

NOX CONTEMPORARY UP: Jenevieve Hubbard and Reclaimed Sentiment. Hubbard’s current work is influenced by her childhood experience in a native traditional village in Alaska and the contrast it presents to her current urban existence. Through fingerprint and labrynth imagery, she seeks to explore “obsessive rituals and endless stretches of barren landscapes.” Recent works in this theme range from drawings to paintings to needlepoint.|0| As the counterpoint artist at Nox Contemporary this month, Reclaimed Sentiment explores vegetarianism, sustainability and the concept of art in a decidedly light-hearted fashion. Using only materials found second-hand and offering her works at an affordable price point for the masses, Reclaimed Sentiment thinks of her work as “the New Yorker cartoons of the collage world.”|1|
LeConte Stewart: Depression Era Art features more than 130 paintings and works on paper from the 1930s (see our review September edition). AND: Final Light: V. Douglas Snow in Retrospect showcases a large body of work presented in two locations (UMFA and the Salt Lake Art Center). AND: Containing a diverse range of artworks from around the world, Color utilizes over twenty pieces from the UMFA's permanent collection to explore the relationship of color to artists and audiences using color as a connector across cultures and time. Includes works by Robert Motherwell, Alex Katz, Anna Campbell Bliss, and more. AND: David Burnett – Too Close is a look at a lifetime of iconic events captured by photojournalist David Burnett.|2| Over 50 photographs by the Salt Lake native offer patrons a glimpse into critical moments of the 20th and 21st centuries. UP: Salt 4: Xaviera Simmons will feature a series of photographs, as well as a sculptural installation made of hand-lettered, locally found wooden scraps affixed directly to the gallery wall. This tangled matrix of text gleaned from notes, news articles, folklore, and literature forms its own kind of lyrical landscape, one imbued with historical and personal memory.|3|

UP: In the Locals Only Gallery, Bild, an installation by Jared Clark composed of urban and domestic objects which takes as its springboard the tenets of Minimalist primary sculptural forms (see page 4) |4| AND: Doublespeak, an exhibition of contemporary women artists who work in code and layered meaning, including Jennifer Nelson, Daniela Comani, Lisa Anne Auerbach, Rebecca Campbell, Julie Orser, Carlee Fernandez, Julie Lequin, Carlin Wing, Wendy Red Star, Mary Reid Kelly, Barbara Kruger, and The Fourth Height + Urs Bigler (see our review in the November edition|5|AND: The Catherine Doctorow Prize for Contemporary Painting, featuring the inaugural winner, Kim Schoenstadt. Painting on canvas, paper, walls, floors and ceilings, the artist includes elements of audience participation, incorporates complex urban views, themes of modernist architecture, and historically informed explorations of image and society.|6| AND: In the New Genres Gallery, Mirko Martin's Noir documents a night during the artist's half-year stay in Los Angeles in 2008. On a particularly noisy evening, Martin went out to capture some sound. Within minutes, he heard gunshots. Over a black screen, Noir captures these gunshots and conversations with several residents and passers-by who try to make sense of what they heard and didn't hear, saw and didn't see.

HOUSE GALLERY UP: Dave Thomas’ Time Line Series.|7| An intriguing display of colors and shapes, these large-scale paintings straddle the line between control and spontaneous expression. Thomas paints with layers of spray paint, latex house paint and even black tar, letting his materials build up, spill over and congeal into seemingly complete shapes. The amorphous bodies that appear in his paintings are divided into sections, each filled with their own, singular patterns, frequently paraphrasing modern art history.
