Utah Climate Week (October 8-14) was created by the Utah Climate Action Network as a time designated to inspire and support conversation about the climate change issues in Utah. The Park City Summit County Arts Council has joined with art galleries throughout Park City to activate the arts and raise awareness of Utah Climate Week. JNG will be featuring select work by Brenda Mallory which was created from recycled materials. Mallory's creative process has been focused for many years on use of found and recycled scrap materials. The four featured artworks by Mallory were created from materials as diverse as linen firehoses, drive belts and corrugated packing material. The artworks will also be featured within a virtual gallery on the PC Arts Council web site. See Brenda's artwork here.
Tor Archer's sculpture Virgin of the Snakes will be included in the exhibition Serpentiform at Art and Science Museum, Singapore (through Oct 15) and then at the Mori Arts Center Gallery, Tokyo (Nov 25 - Dec 23). All of the art in the exhibition has a serpentine element and will also include work by Robert Mapplethorpe, Keith Haring, Alexander Calder, Anselm Kiefer and Joan Miro (and others). See the available sculptures at JNG.
The Museum of Fine Arts Houston will feature 44 photographs covering David's work from 1972-2016. In these photographs, the artist has staged toys and other everyday objects to bring viewers face-to-face with themes central to American history, identity and consciousness. The exhibition will run Oct 14 - Feb 18, 2018. See the available photographs at JNG.
American Art Collector featured a great profile of Carol O'Malia's exhibition at JNG in its August 2017 issue. The exhibition, Jump, will run from July 26 - August 29.
JNG artist Suhas Bhujbal has been included in the exhibition Abstracts From Life: Bay Area Figurative Past and Present at the New Museum Los Gatos. This group exhibition investigates the genesis of the Bay Area Figurative movement and features several generations of artists, including contemporary artists working locally and internationally (including Richard Diebenkorn, Nathan Oliveira, Joan Brown and Terry St. John.) The exhibition will run through September 10.
Brenda Mallory’s installation entitled Recurring Chapters in the Book of Inevitable Outcomes will be on display through October 2017. Her work is inspired by Cherokee history, and addresses ideas of disruption, repair, and renewal. Working with waxed cloth, steel, nuts and bolts, the installation consists of tall shapes resembling charred timbers or skeletal plant stalks surrounded by colorful, lively spore-like forms. The ruin-like floor pieces speak to what was left behind, but the resilience and hope shows in the spore-like forms that scatter across the walls and floor like blowing seeds.
Hailed as "a triumph of ensemble playing" by the New York Times, Utah's own Fry Street Quartet is one of the most exciting and dynamic string quartets on the international classical music scene.

Classical music meets contemporary art. We are thrilled to have hosted a performance by the Fry Street Quartet last weekend. Fry Street Quartet is one of the most exciting and dynamic string quartets on the international classical music scene and has been hailed as "a triumph of ensemble playing" by the New York Times. It was a rare opportunity to be in such intimate proximity of these acclaimed artists. The Quartet was brought to the gallery through the NOVA Chamber Music Series.
David Levinthal in Museum Exhibitions
The National Gallery of Art in Washington DC has acquired a complete set of Kodaliths from David's 1977 publication Hitler Moves East. One of the photographs is currently exhibited in the show Intersections: Photographs and Videos from the National Gallery of Art and Corcoran Gallery of Art. David was also awarded a retrospective exhibition at the George Eastman Museum (Rochester, NY) for summer 2018. You can meet David at Julie Nester Gallery for the opening of his Wild West exhibition on December 30.

Brenda Mallory Receives National Artist Fellowship
Brenda was awarded a Visual Arts Fellowship by the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation. The NACF fosters and supports the vision, creativity and innovation of Native American artists. Brenda's next artistic endeavor during her NACF Fellowship will be to produce intstallations of sculptural wall work that examines mass production, consumption and waste. Earlier this summer Brenda also received a Golden Spot Award/Artist Residency from the Crow's Shadow Institute in Pendelton, OR.
Carol Inez Charney Featured in Fahrenheit
Carol is a featured artist in the September issue of Fahrenheit, a contemporary culture magazine from Mexico City. The article and the current edition are about different kinds of obsession. The edit on Carol discusses her obsession with water and architecture and how those two elements form the basis of her work.
"A PHILOSOPHER'S PALETTE"
"I believe the best art comes out of deliberate practice and discipline mixed with a willingness to trust yourself as an artist and a human being," states Utah artist Bradford Overton. In his richly detailed paintings, we discover he is a master of mystery and a weaver of spells as he explores beauty and narrative with original style.
We are very pleased to have added Gary Komarin to the gallery roster. Komarin is a contemporary abstract painter who presents a bold and colorful style. He has exhibited extensively throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia, and his work can be found in many museum, corporate and private collections. The art critic, Kenneth Baker, wrote "Komarin gets paintings that vibrate with historical memory, echoing such things as Matisse's most driest empty pictures, Robert Motherwell's sparen abstractions of the 1970's, or the early New Mexico and Berkeley paintings of Richard Diebenkorn."
The photographs in visual artist Vanessa Marsh’s series Everywhere All At Once are mysterious and dream-like, made through a personally developed process involving drawing, painting, and darkroom techniques. Marsh delineates pictorial space by layering multiple two-dimensional planes to create a minimalistic, graphic aesthetic. The work provides a space for the viewer to contemplate their place in the universe and to consider how what is real and what is truth is understood in contemporary experiences.
