Wild in the West opening reception

Last Friday was the opening reception of Wild in the West at the Utah Arts Festival Gallery

It was such a great experience to see all 15 paintings I had submitted hanging for the show, and so fun to meet and converse with the many people who came through the gallery during Gallery Stroll that evening.

My work was hanging at the back of the gallery near the refreshment area (prime real estate!). 

This show featured 5 artists (including me). Mike Beals, a metal sculptor who made some wonderful bells. Kate and Adam Rice, wildlife photographers who had some awesome photos displayed on metal. And, J. Randal Young, a landscape painter (and podiatrist!). So, there was a variety of artwork available for every taste!

I really enjoyed meeting the people who came through the gallery, talking to visitors about my painting process and inspiration, and hearing their thoughts as well. It was a great night and I appreciate everyone who came out as well as those who sent your support through well wishes!

I want to thank Brushworks Gallery in Salt Lake City for the beautiful framing they did on my paintings. It made such a difference in the cohesiveness of my presentation and was so exciting for me to see all the work hanging together!

The show will hang until April 8th and regular gallery hours are Mon-Fri 10a-5p. I hope you have time to stop by and see it!

As always, thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a great weekend!
