RUFF! @ Sprague Branch, City Library (downstairs)
Aug 6 – Aug 9 all-day
RUFF! @ Sprague Branch, City Library (downstairs) | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Jenifer Nii’s RUFF! receives its world premiere with six free public performances as part of the inaugural @Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival.

Thursday, August 6 & 7 at 7:30pm
Saturday, August 8 and 9 at 12pm & 1:30pm
Running time: 30 minutes

RUFF!, created specifically for grades K-3 (but accessible to children of all ages!), is a metaphorical “tail” of two shelter dogs. Axel (a shelter regular played by Tyson Baker) and Buddy (a shelter novice played by Latoya Rhodes). Together they discover what’s possible when dogs and their people learn to see past stereotypes and summon the courage to be the best they can be. Intermountain Therapy Animals will have therapy dogs present at each performance. The use of therapy dogs, trained to interact with all humans calmly and equally, is to ensure that each human-canine interaction is a positive one.

Rebecca Reese Jacoby Exhibition at Finch Lane Gallery @ Finch Lane Gallery
Aug 7 @ 9:00 am
Rebecca Reese Jacoby Exhibition at Finch Lane Gallery @ Finch Lane Gallery | Louisville | Illinois | United States

Rebecca Reese Jacoby is inspired by the fire dances of the American Plains Indians who relied on ritual dance they believed would bring the fire back after the solstice and ensure posterity for future generations. As she created paintings of fire dances, she also began to explore the connection to her ancestors, whose very spiritual experiences have “danced” their way into her life. She calls her exhibition “Fire Dances Ancestral.”

“The exhibit is about the strength and powers which spring and bolt from our own inner spirit creating spontaneous gestures of the rituals of dance and generations of human connections,” says Jacoby. “The paintings reveal to me as an artist the associations from ancient histories of primordial beasts, the motions of mythical human plight, and the conveyance of strong ancestors who speak to me of their existent spirits and symbolic dances.” The word dances in the title of the exhibition comes from how Jacoby sees the forms move excitedly in her work. She has dug deep into her ancestral histories and paired it with her painting to reveal the spontaneous, sensual, joyful, and lyrical energy of their lives. The content for these painting show metaphorical beasts, symbols of human iconography, and real ancestral elements––all which have been painted as abstract, gestural expressions of life, both real and imaginary. Reese will give a talk about her work on Tuesday, August 11 at 7:00 p.m.

Richard Lance Russell Exhibition at Finch Lane Gallery @ Finch Lane Gallery
Aug 7 @ 9:00 am
Richard Lance Russell Exhibition at Finch Lane Gallery @ Finch Lane Gallery | Louisville | Illinois | United States

Richard Lance Russell asks viewers to take a fresh look at the people around them through his exhibition “100 Beautiful People. “The cashier at the grocery store has remarkable blue eyes. The child studying ants in the park tilts his head when he’s concentrating. The neighbor’s face is creased by an intricate pattern of wrinkles. Every face is unique,” say Russell.

This exhibition presents 100 small portraits of everyday people, each painting as unique as its subject. The subjects are from a variety of backgrounds and cultures, and different ages and genders. As viewers experience 100 faces surrounding them in an arrangement of uniform square frames, all distraction is removed, leaving only beautiful, ordinary people. According to Russell great portraits don’t just capture physical characteristics. They also reflect something of their subject’s personality, self, and soul. “When you begin to see people—really see them—you realize that they are all beautiful. We are born with sight, but we learn to see,” concludes Russell.

Relay For Life Sandy @ The Healing Field
Aug 7 @ 6:00 pm – Aug 8 @ 6:00 am
Relay For Life Sandy @ The Healing Field | Sandy | Utah | United States

Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraising event. The Relay is a gathering to honor those who have lost the battle to caner, those surviving it, and the caregivers that help along the way. The money raised at this event goes towards researching cures for cancer, treatment, and education to help lower the risk of cancer, and 100% of the funds raised stay here in Utah.

The Relay starts with an opening ceremony followed by a lap by the Survivor Lap and then the Caregiver Lap. Teams are asked to have someone on the track at all times for the full twelve hours as this symbolizes that cancer never sleeps and neither does the battle against it. Around dusk the track will be lit up by luminaria which are small white bags decorated and dedicated to those who have battled cancer.

There are games for kids, vendors, special attractions, and activities throughout the night so there’s always something to do. This year we are celebrating our 30th year anniversary and have a super hero theme. You can be a hero too by donating to the fight against cancer. Learn about cancer, how to fight it, form a team, volunteer, and donate at relayforlife.org/sandyut. You can also follow us at facebook.com/relayforlifesandy.

The event is free to enjoy so even if you can’t stay for long, check us out.
