  • Jennifer Worsley Exhibit: Pastels and Woodblock Prints

    • Sunday, February 23, 2020 at 09:00 AM – March 08, 2020
    • Red Butte Garden in Salt Lake City, UT


    I work in soft pastels, which are wonderful for capturing fleeting effects of light and weather. I find pastel very suitable for working on location, in order to achieve a quality of immediacy and liveliness in my work. I am constantly scanning my surroundings for shadows passing over hills, sparkling light on water, or a particular moment of harmonious color in a sunset. I often discover subjects by chance, and will get out my pastels and complete the painting on the spot. What interests me is a sense of movement, and by implication, the passing of time. I am inspired by the challenge of capturing this fundamental aspect of nature. I make and prepare my own painting surfaces and pastel chalks. I make my pastel chalks from raw pigment powder, creating colors I could not find in commercially available pastels. As balance to the immediacy and spontaneity of working in pastel, I also translate landscapes into woodblock prints, using a Japanese method called moku hanga. Woodblock printmaking requires a careful plan and lots of time to create an image, making it completely opposite to the way I work in pastel. I find that each technique informs and influences the other. I can see a landscape as either a light-filled, atmospheric pastel, or as a more stylized and graphic woodblock print.

  • Pilar Pobil’s Works on Exhibit Colors of Life: Paintings by Pilar Pobil USU Merrill-Cazier Library, Room 101 3000 Old Main Hill, Logan, UT 84321 Jan 17-Feb 23, 2020 Twenty of Pilar Pobil’s works are currently on display at the USU Merrill-Cazier Library. On February 20, 2020 at 12:00pm, Pilar Pobil will be present for a Gallery Stroll. The award-winning artist will speak about her artistic vision and conduct a tour through the exhibit with commentary on her inspiration for and thoughts behind several of the works.  Refreshments will be served after the guided tour. Introduction of Pilar will be provided by Utah State University Professor JP Spicer-Escalante. Although Pilar knew from an early age that she was an artist, she was born in Spain at a time when women were not encouraged to pursue their ambitions. Pilar’s father was an admiral in the Spanish Navy and was tragically killed in the Civil War when she was a young child. Her mother was very austere and conservative. Pilar became a rebel in order to pursue her dreams. She married an American WWII veteran and came to live in Utah. When Pilar was in her forties, she started to work seriously as a professional artist. Pilar is now 93 years old, but still growing, learning and creating art. She is still on a journey of discovery. Pilar’s style is defined by strong expression. She uses vivid color, form, light and shadow, to boldly define what she wants the viewer to see and feel. No matter the subject, Pilar pushes the essence she perceives as far as she can. She paints from a place of feeling. Pilar’s work often surprises her by evolving into something very different from its original intent. Pilar has received many honors and awards for her art. She was recognized in 2019 as one of Utah’s Most Influential Artists. In 2016, she was knighted by the King of Spain. Sponsored by the Department of Languages, Philosophy, and Communications Studies, Utah State University Libraries, and Utah Division of Arts and Museum.

  • Go with the Flow: Acrylic Paint Pouring



    Ages 21+ ONLY - Proudly serving local wine and craft beer. What is acrylic paint pouring? It's a form of abstract painting using fluid acrylic paints. Instead of using lots of details and paint brushes, we pour the paint on the canvas. It's an absolute blast and an amazing form of color therapy! The price includes two canvases and all of the supplies. (You get to choose your own colors!) NOTE: Aprons are provided, but it's a good idea to wear clothes they don't mind getting paint on, just in case. We end up with a lot of paint on the canvases, so they'll need to dry 48 hours before you can take them home. Plan on picking up your paintings two days after class, or we can set up a time for the following week. Founded in 2012, The Paint Mixer is Utah's first locally owned and operated paint and sip experience. May our studio be your creative space, where you can let loose, get messy and create freely!

  • Ready Steady Yeti Go

    • Sunday, February 23, 2020 at 02:00 PM – February 29, 2020
    • The Box in Salt Lake City, UT
    Ready Steady Yeti Go is a timely play about race, love, and how to move forward when, in the face of tragedy, that's all there is to do.

    Wasatch Theatre Company brings the timely play READY STEADY YETI GO! By David Jacobi to The Box at The Gateway, 124 South 400 West as part of their 22nd season. In the aftermath of a hate crime, Junior High pariah Goon befriends one of the victims, Carly, the only black girl in school. While the town plans a rally "to destroy racism forever," a youthful romance blossoms and the two must navigate the pitfalls of falling in love while dealing with the town's prying eyes, especially those of Wikipedia Jones, the crime-solving son of the Chief of Police. Passive-aggressive antics, bad parental advice, and ill-informed gestures of kindness create a "White Guilt Perfect Storm" that threatens to make the course of true love a rocky road indeed. The cast includes Trinidad Allen as Carly, Michael Davies as Goon, Sterling Shane Allen as Gandry, Savannah Moffat as Katie, and TJ Hunter as Barry.  Tristan B. Johnson directs. There will also be a performance February 9 as part of the Edward Lewis Festival. Wasatch Theatre Company is a local theatre organization that has been in operation since 1997.  The group has performed at venues such as delis and coffee shops before spending the last ten years at The Rose Wagner performing Arts Building in downtown Salt Lake.  WTC is now the resident theatre company of The Gateway and is housed at the new performing arts space The Box.
