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.

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.
