Chatting with one of the guests for the Grid Zine Fest on April 8.
A while ago we chatted with the crew of the Griz Zine Fest as they were starting to launch and getting their bearings as far as what they were going to do in the community. On April 8, they'll be launching their first official festival at the Salt Lake Arts Academy with workshops and guest speakers.
Chatting with the playwright and actors for this bizarre new play.
The latest production from Plan-B Theatre Co., Not One Drop, marks the third production created in partnership with the David Ross Fetzer Foundation for Emerging Artists. This world premiere of Morag Shepherd's play closes out Plan-B's season with a weird and surrealistic dark comedy featuring Colleen Baum and Latoya Cameron.
The debut of the first new gallery on Pierpont Avenue in eight years.
Pierpont Avenue used to be the heart of Salt Lake Gallery Stroll; the majority of businesses along the street between 300 and 400 West offered a treasure trove of monthly artistic exploration and wine drinking. But as people moved out for a bevy of reasons, the street quickly turned into photography studios, artisan shops and other come-and-go businesses, along with some residential.
Previewing this month's exhibition at the gallery in The Gateway.
This month has a number of exhibitions across the state that are kinda awesome, and passing them up would be a shame. I envy the people who will leave the house on Friday to see what's happening on Stroll night, but we'll talk more about our coverage of that on Monday.
The SLC-based artist uses the classic nostalgia toy to create great works.
Every artist in their own way is trying to find a niche, something to define them and help them stand out from other brilliants artists. Finding that niche can be difficult, but once you latch onto it, wondrous things happen.
Chatting with the SLC-based comedian about his time in the local scene.
Coming up in the next few weeks we're going to be seeing an uptick in standup shows, including a festival and some awesome one-off showcases. It's a great time right now to see some comedy for cheap, pretty much any night of the week.
A look into the peculiar studio space in downtown Provo.
A cool oddity sitting in the middle of downtown Provo, The Boxcar Studios is a studio space housing multiple artists and serving as occasional venue for live music and events. Now with multiple businesses moving in and making the place feel like a community-driven artspace, it's only a matter of time before the building becomes one of Provo's biggest community hotspots.
Chatting with the cast and director of Pygmalion's newest play.
Pygmalion Productions' latest play, Eleemosynary, debuted this week (and runs through March 11) at the Rose Wagner. The Lee Bessing play focuses on three single women in the same family who can't seem to communicate: Grandmother Dorothea, who is asserting her independence by being eccentric; mother Artie, who fled her mother's controlling nature; and daughter Echo, a smart and sensitive child who Artie left in the care of Dorothea.
