Hammers Inc. Art Festival exhibit at the Rio Gallery
Friday, Dec. 2 – Friday, Jan. 6

SALT LAKE CITY — The Rio Gallery will host the 5th Annual Hammers Inc. Art Festival exhibit “Life by Passion.” A public reception will be held Dec. 2 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., during the Salt Lake Gallery Stroll. The exhibit will continue until Jan. 6 during state office hours, which are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. The Rio Gallery is located at 300 So. Rio Grande Street (455 West) in Salt Lake City.

The Hammers Inc. Art Festival was founded by Garrett Smith of Hammers Inc. Photography, whose vision was to inspire the community with art and the artists who stand behind it.

The exhibited art was submitted through a call for entries process. A team of artists and creative professionals selected the artists to be featured. Exhibited works include oil, mixed media, watercolor, graffiti and photography by: Adam Barker, Trent Call, Kandyce Groesbeck, Flossie Kehr, Chuck Landvatter, PJ Mannion, Sarah Mannion, Kristin Marine, Zachary Proctor, Garrett Smith, and Matthew Turley.
