Sugar-Coated Exhibition at Finch Lane Gallery @ Finch Lane Gallery
Mar 16 @ 8:00 am – Apr 27 @ 5:00 pm
Sugar-Coated Exhibition at Finch Lane Gallery @ Finch Lane Gallery | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Sugar-Coated explores the topic of euphemisms as found in American culture. Euphemistic language ranges from attempting to speak politely about uncomfortable topics to more nefarious attempts to disguise truth and purposely mislead audiences. Topics include bodily functions, body parts, puberty, sex, aging, death, human suffering, politics, religion, and war. Euphemisms are also used to soften the delivery of bad news such as death, loss of employment, or removal of rights or privileges.

The exhibition, co-curated by Holly Cobb and Michelle Montrose Larsen, provides a visual exploration of euphemisms, revealing their effect on our culture, both individually and collectively. With the ever-increasing amount of visual marketing, the ability to identify and decode euphemisms becomes increasingly crucial.

Gallery talks and discussions with the artists will be held on Friday, March 16th from 5:00-6:00 p.m. The opening reception will be from 6:00-9:00 p.m. that evening in conjunction with Gallery Stroll.

The Gallery is open Monday – Friday.

Small: Works by Laura Sharp Wilson @ Alice Gallery
May 11 all-day
Small: Works by Laura Sharp Wilson @ Alice Gallery | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Artist Reception: June 15 from 6-9 pm. In Laura Sharp Wilson’s paintings the fabric of people’s lives is dissected and broken down into threads, strands, rope, shapes, patterns, and chains, which are allowed to bind, constrict, envelop, unravel, create webs, outline, cover up, and reconcile. Can a structured or chaotic weaving portray a society? Can transparency and opacity suggest ignoring others? Can bound empty spaces represent a deep insecurity? Wilson conveys a narrative illustrating internal feelings of turmoil and confusion which beg to be sorted out and clarified.
