Each artist in this show has dedicated themselves to doing something they hate. Not just anything they hate something they recognize as having value, even though they dislike it. Working alongside an accomplished mentor in the media of their choosing, the artists developed skills in that particular area. Both the artists and their mentors have work in the exhibition. Mentors and artists include: Jeffery R. Pugh and Namon Bills, Chris Terry and Justin Wheatley, Casey Childs and Linney Brown.
Potluck, An installation coordinated by Joseph Ostraff.
This exhibition represents a group of visual artists as they consider this place so many call home. Just as we shape and build the landscape around us, the landscape has a remarkable effect on us, shaping and building culture. Utah was "the place" for many indigenous peoples prior to the arrival of the Mormon pioneers. More recently, the numbers of people who call Utah "home" have expanded to include the pioneers and their several generations of descendants, as well as contemporary migrants to the Wasatch Front. This exhibition explores the diversity and value of the community through artists, community participation and historical photographs.
