"Big Eyed Women" & "Portals of Light" @ Art Access (SLC: Feb 18 - March 11)

Salt Lake City, UT - February 1, 2011

Big Eyed Women in Art Access Gallery

Art Access Gallery is pleased to present Big Eyed Women, a group show of 13 Utah women artists.

This group of women artists, who are all connected in some way to Brigham Young University, have been meeting informally over a period of time. They represent a variety of ages, a diversity of experience and a desire to explore women's issues through their art. They celebrate womanhood through their various forms of creativity and explore the common strand that is woven throughout their lives as women.

The Big Eyed Women are: Anne Gregerson, Ashley Mae Christensen, Cassandra Barney, Emily Carruth, Elizabeth Sanchez, Emily Fox, Hayley Labrum, Karina A. Cutler, Kirsti Ringger, Laura Rowley, Sunny Belliston Taylor, Von Allen and Whitney L. Johnson. Elizabeth Sanchez coordinated the exhibit.
Portals of Light in Access II Gallery

Access II Gallery is pleased to present Portals of Light, a solo exhibit featuring glass artist Sarinda Jones.

Jones offers an exhibition that reflects upon her recent experiences attending a private residency at North Lands in Lybster, Scotland. According to the artist, "this residency was a rare opportunity for each participant to explore a body of work related to the topic of kilnformed glass that is integrated into architecture, or inspired by the Scottish environment".

The residency included 13 students who represented five countries and five states. The residency's intent was not to make finished work but to explore ideas though drawing, model making, sampling, testing and critique. The group engaged in daily meetings to assess, share, review and comment on all of the projects as a group.
