This last weekend was a weekend of show openings. Friday was the opening for the Utah Images, Equitable Life show, down stairs in the City County Building at Salt Lake. I have a painting of the Cocks Comb close to Torrey Utah in the show. As you come down the stairs, it is to your left. That is if you go down the same stairs I came down.
Later that night was the displays of the paintings from the Plein Air Watercolor Society Show in Conjunction with Entrada Institute and Capitol Reef National Park at the Concept Gallery. It was fun to see all those paintings again. They were there for one night only.
Saturday Night was the opening for the Show “Prophetic Visions of Peace and Justice” Artists took inspiration from Isaiah 11:6 Here is my artists statement from the show:
I love Isaiah and the beautiful images that come into my mind as I read “The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid: and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. I pictured a child leading all these animals but didn’t know what the child should carry. It seems very appropriate that I asked my granddaughter what should I put in the child’s arms? She said a baby lion. It was the perfect image. The adult male lion trusts his offspring to the little child.
I love the promise of righteousness and peace that Christ will bring to the world when he comes again and the love and peace that He brings to us as we invite him into our lives.
This painting can be seen at the the Cottonwood Presbyterian Church 1580 E. Vine (6100 S.) Murray, Utah. I believe it’s open 3 p.m. til 5 p.m. but I would call to double check on that.
Finally I have 15 paintings on display at the Centerpoint Theater at 524 N. 400 W., Centerville, Utah 84014 with Robert Mackay for about a month. They are on the second floor of the lobby and can be seen from 10 a.m. until show time. This is a fine show. So if you would like to see some of the paintings I’ve been working on lately, head to these shows.
