Time + Materials – Exhibition and Artist Reception

Presented by Utah Division of Arts and Museums at Rio Gallery

Time + Materials opens June 21 and runs through August 30, with an artist reception June 21 from 6-9 p.m. during Salt Lake Gallery Stroll. The exhibition is presented by the Utah Division of Arts & Museums at the Rio Gallery, located at the historic Rio Grande Depot at 300 S Rio Grande, which is free and open to the public Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

On the one hand, Time + Materials sounds like the banal calculation of a greedy plumber hoping to charge a hapless customer twice what she can afford. On the other, it conveys the Sisyphean task of the artist: how to trap what is ineffable in the physical world?

In Heidi Moller Somsen’s sculptures the texture of materials—the responsiveness of the clay, the resiliency of rubber inner tubes, the translucency of resin—act as catalysts in the attempt to make peace with time—to slow it down, be still, and preserve the moment. Richard Gate’s large-scale monotypes draw imagery from natural, scientific, and metaphysical worlds, bringing dragonflies, lilies, and DNA helixes into the same conversation – asking the where and why of who we are. The discarded ephemera of daily life—scraps of clothing, postcards, family photos, even thought fragments—recombine in Jacqui Larsen’s tessellated collages and paintings, nudging buried memories to the surface in flashes of recognition resembling hope.
