Studio Space: Holladay
Patty Kimball's Working Space


Whether she's painting landscapes of Utah's Wasatch Front or figures against the broad expanse of the ocean or a field of snow, Patty Kimball embues her paintings with a sense of frozen energy: the paint in her still compositions seem as if they are just on the verge of bursting from the canvas. She creates these paintings in an idyllic setting, her studio tucked into a wooded area in the Salt Lake Valley's Holladay neighborhood. Since Kimball's newest paintings will be on exhibit at Salt Lake's Phillips Gallery beginning October 19th, Portia Snow went to see where they are created, and brought back this photo essay of the space.

On the Spot
Salt Lake's Linda Smith

A native of Utah, Linda C. Smith began her career in dance at the age of four with Virginia Tanner's Children's Dance Theatre. In 1966 she become a founding member of Repertory Dance Theatre where she fulfilled her dream of becoming a performer, teacher, choreographer, writer, producer and eventually, in 1983, the Artistic Director for the company. Her pursuits have led to the development of the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center, to the establishment of the RDT Community School, to providing commissions for established and emerging choreographers, and to the creation of multi-disciplinary activities that focus on the dance history, the environment, social issues, multi-ethnic history, sustainability and community. Linda's performing experience spans over 90 works. She has taught in over 1000 schools bringing the magic of dance to students and teachers with her unique demonstrations, lectures, classes and professional development workshops.

eCurrently, I am interested in the history of the British in India and am about half way through a stack of books by James Morris about the Victorian Empire including Heaven's Command and the Pax Britannica Trilogy. On the lighter side (and at the urging of my Granddaughter) I just read the Hunger Games Trilogy so I would appear more hip conversing with the age 13-16 crowd.

design elementActually, the most interesting dance production I have seen lately was a film by Wim Wenders about German choreographer, Pina Bausch, called "PINA..A film for Pina Bausch." I met Pina and saw her company perform in Wuppertal, Germany, when RDT was there in the early 1990's. Amazing choreography!

eMy parents had a watercolor by a Utah painter, Joseph Everett, that I loved. I would look at it and try to guess exactly where it was painted and imagine that I was there. It now hangs in my own home along side a number of my other favorite Utah artists.

eOn my mantle I have two retablos by Jeronimo Lozano. Over my mantle are two wonderful photographs by George Janecek of Native American dancers at a pow-wow at Fort Duchesne. Near the photographs is a painting by Edie Roberson. I treasure the art that I have been able to collect, especially art that was created in Utah.

eAs a college student, I used to model for the U of U art department. I have portraits by F. Anthony Smith, Early Jones, Alvin Gittins and Alex Katz. If he were alive, I would like to model for sculptor Henry Moore. I always thought that my body related to his forms. It would be fun to have a portrait by political cartoonist, Pat Bagley. You can have very interesting conversations with artists when you model for them. Artists have a way of seeing inside their subjects. I am always fascinated by what they choose to reveal.
