“We All Like Figgy Pudding” Exhibition at Rio Gallery
Holiday Show Opens December 7
SALT LAKE CITY — Utah Arts & Museums announces the opening of the exhibition “We All Like Figgy Pudding” at the Rio Gallery on December 7, 2012, and running until January 4, 2013. A public reception will be held on Friday, December 7, from 6 - 9 p.m., in conjunction with the Salt Lake Gallery Stroll. Regular gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Admission is free. The Rio Gallery is located inside the historic Rio Grande Depot at 300 S. Rio Grande (455 West) in Salt Lake City.
Curated by the Salt Lake Gallery Stroll, “We All Like Figgy Pudding” is a holiday exhibition that “represents a variety of mediums and styles from contemporary artists. Each piece evokes aspects of the holidays that are often overlooked in the commercial flurry of the season,” said Kristina Robb, Executive Director of the Salt Lake Gallery Stroll. “For many, the holidays are a complex and disruptive time of year. Through this exhibit we invite the viewer to step away from preconceived notions of what the holidays should be, to settle in and enjoy the many unpredictable moments.”
Participating artists include Court Bennett, Scott Buckner, Lindey Carter, Craig Cleveland, Carolyn Coalson, Erin Coleman-Cruz, A. David Crown, Nel Ivanovich, Joe Ostraff, Hadley Rampton, Derek Reeverts, Regina Stenberg and Gregory Stocks.
