November – December 2013
This exhibition consists of new drawings and mixed media works by Catherine Downing, Nancy Steele-Makasci, and Tawni Shuler. The pieces in this exhibition are intended to reveal “black” in all of its variety, from dense rich impenetrable blacks to smoky hazy delicate grays. Even though black is often interpreted in a negative sense referring to death, evil or destruction, in this exhibition, powerful and intense black will be a place of solace and rest in a sometimes tumultuous and transitory world. Black then becomes a metaphor for a certain kind of experience in the world.
The artists state, “No matter what we do or whom we meet, we all leave behind an imprint. This imprint leaves a faint impression in each of us, emotionally, physical, or spiritually, long after we are done. Black and its values can function in this way, a residue of something past, a memory in a lost shadow.”
An artist reception will be held on November 15, 2013 from 6-9pm for Gallery Stroll
This winter, join the International Rescue Committee in Salt Lake City in spreading holiday cheer to refugee families through our Light One Candle donation drive! If you are interested in participating, let us know the number of individuals you would like to sponsor, you will then be matched with a family, and we will provide you with each family member’s age and a wishlist of items they need.
We will be collecting donations from December 2nd to December 18th, and distributing gifts on December 21st. If you would like to be matched with a refugee family this holiday season, or want to get involved with Light One Candle in a different way, please contact Geoffrey Lugli, Donations Coordinator, at Geoffrey.Lugli@Rescue.org or call 801-883-8457.
Pushing The Elephant (2010) was part of the 2010 Human Rights Watch Film Festival. An intimate family drama set against the backdrop of the 1998 conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Pushing the Elephant tells the story of Rose Mapendo, who was separated during the conflict from her five-year-old daughter, Nangabire. Rose survived the atrocities of those years and was eventually resettled in Phoenix, Arizona, with her other children. Now, after 12 years apart, Rose and her daughter Nangabire are reunited in the US. After the film, stay for a panel discussion about refugees in Salt Lake City with participating community members.
