ON THE BORDER: THAILAND AND MYANMAR PAINTINGS
Watercolor paintings by Hadley Rampton, Maung Maung Tinn, Nyan Soe
In this group exhibit, local artist Hadley Rampton is joined in Salt Lake by two Burmese painters who inspired her to join them in exposing the atrocities taking place in Myanmar (Burma). Rampton met Maung Maung Tinn, and Nyan Soe In Thailand while visiting and working in one of the Karenni camps on the Thai/Burmese Border, Ban Mai Nai Soi.
"I hope our work will educate our community about what is happening in Burma and enhance people's awareness, understanding, and empathy for the Karen and Karenni refugee communities we have in the Salt Lake Valley," says Rampton.

Paintings by Laura Hope Mason
The paintings in this series focus attention on objects or feelings that may be fleeting or transient to the viewer. Each piece is a fragment of a bigger picture. Piecing together subtle abstractions offers understanding of the unfamiliar and impermanent.
