Husband and wife artists Clay and Rebecca Wagstaff from Tropic, Utah, showing this month at Finch Lane Gallery.
2) If you could choose any artist (living or dead) to paint or sculpt your portrait, who would it be?
Vermeer–I just love how he translated his world into his beautiful, clear, painting style.
3) What are you reading lately?
Well, I like to read and we are teaching our daughters at home so I probably shouldn’t give a complete list. Some titles we have read/listened to recently include Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, Autobiography of Parley P. Pratt, A Thousand and One Nights (Sir Richard Burton, trans.), Whatever Happened to Penny Candy, Lee in Virginia, first three volumes of History of the World (Susan Wise Bauer) and the Old Testament. My personal recent reading is Joseph Smith: Rough Stone Rolling and Nibley
2)What hangs above your mantel?
No mantel but there is a european mount mule deer skull & antlers and a small lithograph on the wall where the chimney passes through the living room.
3) If you could choose any artist (living or dead) to paint or sculpt your portrait, who would it be?
An etching by Rembrandt because I love his etchings–they blow me away.
This is our chance to check in with members of Utah’s art community to see what they’ve been reading, seeing, doing.
