SALT LAKE CITY, UT – Salt Lake City Public Library will be exhibiting Circles of Influence: Artwork by Virginia Catherall, Sheryl Gillilan, Rebecca Klundt, Jaye Rieser, Kandace Steadman, and Camille Wheatley in the Fourth Floor Gallery through August 4, 2023.
Circles are found everywhere in the natural world, from the solar system to stream-tumbled rocks, to microscopic cells. Sound waves radiate outward. The sun’s rays penetrate inward. Circles are vibrant shapes because they absorb and reflect what is around them. “Circles of Influence” uses that imagery as the foundation of each artists’ work. Sheryl Gillilan focuses on the interplay of circles and straight lines in her quilts. Jaye Rieser incorporates the natural motion of the potter’s wheel to craft her pieces. Kandace Steadman creates collage mandalas and mixed media pieces that focus on circles. Camille Wheatley uses her camera to document the world she sees, capturing the immediacy of circles in her scenes. Virginia Catherall is inspired by the natural world and translates that vision into circular, knitted art pieces. Rebecca Klundt uses reclaimed wood to create landscapes and other imagery. This exhibition looks at circles of influence as experienced by artists through six different media and textures, bringing together a rich exploration of the same theme.
