Art Night for Ukraine  @ Impact the HUB (Downtown Salt Lake City, UT) | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

As the current events in Ukraine are widely televised, many wonder where the sudden turmoil in this country began. “Art Night for Ukraine” provides a unique opportunity for the public to better understand the current situation in Ukraine and learn about how the conflict came to be through the stories of a Ukrainian artist Marina Lukach and her work. “I was there and saw with my own eyes young, brave people ready to put their lives on the line to make Ukraine a better country,” said Lukach. “This is something that impacts your life and your view of the world.”

Join us at an art exhibit where Lucach will tell her story of Maydan and its influence on her artwork. At the end of the event, everybody will get a chance to purchase a piece of art.
All profits from this art sale will be sent to Ukraine through “Courage to Hope,” a California-based non-profit organization. “There are a lot of people in Ukrainian hospitals that need medicine, basic hygiene products and clothes,” said Bret Martineau, Courage to Hope CEO.

The Horse @ Natural History Museum of Utah
Oct 27 all-day
The Horse @ Natural History Museum of Utah | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Explore the Enduring Bond between Humans and Horses:

The Natural History Museum of Utah is excited to host The Horse.

Over time, humans have preyed upon horses, domesticated them, bred them for work and play, and forged deep emotional and spiritual connections with them. Come discover the fascinating story of how humans have shaped the horse, and how the horse, in turn has shaped us.

This special exhibition includes cultural objects from around the world, a hand-painted diorama depicting the evolution of the horse, and interactives that invite you to test your strength in horsepower, identify different breeds, and peek inside a life-size, moving horse.

Explore one of Utah’s most important horse stories – the connection of the Ute people to horses. The Ute were among the first North American tribes to acquire horses from the Spanish in the 1600s. Discover how horses transformed Ute life in ways that continue to reverberate today.

The Horse opens July 19 to members and July 21 to all guests.

Horses are integral to our history and touch us as individuals. Celebrate our bond with these magnificent creatures!

November Artist: Terry Willis @ I.J. and Jeanne Wagner Jewish Community Center
Nov 1 @ 1:00 pm
November Artist: Terry Willis  @ I.J. and Jeanne Wagner Jewish Community Center | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Exhibit will be posted all month. Open to the Public during JCC hours. November 1st-30th on the Second Floor Lobby

Terry Willis is a self-taught artist who began painting in 1974 when she joined the Navy and rendered landscapes and seascapes of duty stations on both coasts and in Iceland.
Willis grew up along the Mississippi River in Iowa but located to Utah in 1980. Here the rugged canyons moved her, peace and solitude found in the wide expanses of the desert and mountains of the region.
Willis brings this passion for place to her paintings. Painting what she sees, she captures a
moment as light and shadow play across canyons, rivers and ridges. In each creation she strives to capture the feeling of being alone and at peace in an incredible, but real place. Viewing her paintings is like a little respite in the wilderness.
She also sees her work as preserving a piece of remote, wild and little known landscapes. Her works reflect her travels and play. She is an active hike, mountain biker, x-country skier and photographer.
As a self-taught artist, her style has evolved and progressed. Willis began working with acrylics and not paints with oils for the rich and detailed paintings she can produce. Most of her activity is done in studio because she loves to capture the details and complexity of each scene.
