Truth and Consequences

Group exhibit curated by Andrew Ehninger, Megan Hallett, and Kelly Seim

Exhibiting Artists: TBA

A multimedia exhibit exploring Salt Lake City artists’ attempt to make meaning out of the socially turbulent early days of the Trump presidency- the protests, executive orders, rescinded orders, outrageous press conferences, support and dissent, condemnation of the media and the courts, and the vilification of immigrants. The group curated exhibit explores the capacity of artmaking to make sense of the impact this time has had on our communities, our neighbors, families, and artists.

ART ACCESS GALLERY

Eric Fairclough's process is very technical and time-consuming, requiring many steps for each painting. The paintings he creates take 20-120+ hours to make Everything is hand-drawn by the artist directly onto birch. He hand cuts the design using a precision knife, repeating the masking and cutting steps for each separate color. He juxtaposes the technical aspect of the work with an abstract method of painting using acrylic aerosol paint. This contrast between the technical process and abstract free-form of his artworks are surprising and original (see image on right).

Jessica Springman's artworks are incredibly detailed and made out of hand-cut paper. All original designs, her works range from purely geometric to more natural portrayals incorporating birds, flowers, scenery, and architecture. Every piece is unique, and one-of-a-kind.

The Art of Infertility

Group exhibit curated by the Utah Infertility Resource Center

Exhibiting Artists: TBA

The ART of Infertility is a nonprofit comprised of an infertility artwork, oral history, and portraiture project designed to educate, raise awareness, and provide a creative outlet and community of support for those experiencing the effects of the disease of infertility. The ART of Infertility has partnered with Art Access to serve those suffering from infertility to assist in programming and workshops to develop inspiring and educational community-based exhibits.

The goal of this exhibit is to portray a diversity of infertility stories in order to broaden the public’s understandings of this disease. The Utah Infertility Resource Center and Art Access share this passion for educating the public and addressing the fact that infertility does not discriminate, and that it is a mentally, emotionally, and socially traumatic experience for most

Individual Installation by Banyan Fierer

Banyan's installation focuses on our interconnectedness and how to weave together disparate individuals and communities. Made out of deconstructed copper scrubbing pads, this installation is a perfect metaphor for "scrubbing away" our differences as individuals and groups defined by our race, class, and sex. Reflecting on his own alienation from society as a queer youth, the artist responds to times he often was excluded or ignored. By literally dismantling these the copper scrubbing pads, Banyan creates a performative action to deconstruct discrimination and ostracization and reconstruct the wires to symbolize interconnection and inclusivity. The diverse threads are woven together, but they retain both their individuality and their interconnectedness.
