Spaces: Jarvis, Rice & Vincent 

When: July 18-Aug. 22 2014
Price: Free
The title of the exhibit Spaces at Rio Gallery carries a double meaning: the spaces that separate us, and the spaces that connect us. The artists' works also span the spaces between varying artistic media. Weber State University grad Holly Jarvis, born in Oxfordshire, England, outlines the contours of a new landscape with her "digital paintings," which utilize collage, drawing, painting and digital materials. The collaged elements re-contextualize the works, and the spaces they evoke are highly personal ("The Tendency of Obstruction" is pictured). Andrew Rice uses oil sticks to create works on paper that inhabit the space connecting painting and drawing. Layers of color and texture accumulate to create an urban landscape in which visual richness is equated with social space. The act of viewing them places the audience in that social space, while allowing the ambivalence of distance. Based in color theory, the acrylics of Utah Valley University associate professor Marcus Vincent suggest architectural forms with their compositional shapes, as well as a kind of transcendence of physical space. They are the most dramatic of the three, due to their spontaneity. The three artists use the space of the Rio Gallery as well, to connect with each other and with the viewer. The dialogue these artists have constructed through their works is intriguing, and likely to spawn dialogues between viewers in that space. (Brian Staker, City Weekly)
