Event Details

The Downtown Artist Collective is pleased to present [DIS]PLACED, an exhibit featuring new works by Taylor Wright and Katie Meservy Strader.

Taylor’s latest series of oil paintings explores the monolithic and monumental. Like all monuments, the figures that appear in these paintings function as avatars of political and cultural systems. He hopes to produce a certain tension by recontextualizing these monuments spatially and physically. Contrasting these figures with scenes of catastrophe and war reflects a certain kind of political eschatology or civilizational death-drive that defines the modern era.

In this work Katie is exploring multiple forms of boundaries and expectations. Each painting begins as a written response to a real life moment where expectations couldn’t be met. This text becomes the bones of her living landscapes (a traditionally accepted genre of painting for women). And while the doubling of edges functions both as a visual device and an arbitrarily enforced limitation upon her, Katie holds no reverence for the traditional performance of a landscape. She alters the way we think of landscapes by tearing and manipulating the horizons and planes we expect to see.

An opening reception for their new exhibit will be held at the Downtown Artist Collective Friday, Aug 16, 2019 from 6-9pm. To learn more about Taylor and Katie’s work, please visit tswrightstudio.com and www.katiestrader.com.

Here's one from our upcoming Jan/Feb issue out on stands in just a few days. We hope you’ll grab a copy and enjoy every moment of reading it.⁠

Mary photobombs Lisa Barlow at the premiere party for Real Housewives of Salt Lake. Below is a snippet from Mary's last editor's letter:⁠

"It’s all a little crazy.⁠
Sometime in 2020, the world stopped making sense for a lot of us. Between one of the ugliest election cycles the U.S. has ever been through and the most mysterious disease most of us have ever experienced, normal was canceled. We can’t get together with friends, hug our loved ones, be in the room with them when they die. But somehow we have to go on, right? Somehow we have to continue to work and love and laugh. This issue of Salt Lake magazine holds a lot of frivolity, the main one being an extremely silly TV show, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. There I am in a pink fur coat in a car with our cover housewife, Lisa Barlow and her boys."⁠

Pick up our Jan/Feb issue at your local grocer and read the full letter. ❤️

Mary's last-minute holiday gift ideas from last year are still as true and relevant today...⁠

"The planet we live with and the creatures on it need all kinds of things. Polar bears need presents, tree frogs in the Amazon need gifts, our Utah canyons and our national parks need help."⁠

There was never a time there wasn’t Mary Malouf. Until now. Today, Mary died when a rogue wave swept her out to sea off the coast of Northern California. Only she – perhaps the world’s foremost lover of Bronte, BBC mysteries and, of course, Moby Dick – would appreciate such poetic drama.

“I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I'll go to it laughing.” — Mary Brown Malouf. Ooops. Herman Mellville.
