A Life’s Work

Watercolors and photography by Cliff Greenwood

Opening artist reception is Friday, January 21, 6 to 9 p.m.

Salt Lake City, UT: The Utah Arts Festival Gallery, housed in the Festival offices, is pleased to present A Life’s Work, watercolors and photography by Cliff Greenwood from January 21 to February 11.

A Life’s Work celebrates the 96 year-old artist’s first gallery exhibit.

Born in 1914, Cliff Greenwood immigrated to the United States, with his brother at the age of 11 from England. He lived with his aunt and uncle in Philadelphia and then later moved to Tennessee finally settling in Utah 35 years ago. For many years, each summer, Cliff visited his son Mickey in northern New Mexico and while spending time there would devote one day in Taos sketching adobe buildings, mission churches and pueblos. When he was back at home, he painted watercolors using the sketches as guides. Frequently the sketches were not detailed enough so Cliff began taking photographs as a supplement to his sketches. Over time, photography itself became an important part of his artwork. Cliff's ability to capture beautiful images in nature translates to both his watercolors and his photography. Cliff started painting at the age of 65 and moved to photography a few years later. He just celebrated his 96th birthday.

Artists’ reception, in conjunction with the Salt Lake Gallery Stroll, is Friday, January 21 from 6 to 9 p.m.

Regular gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Utah Arts Festival Gallery is located at 230 South 500 West, Suite 120.
