Event Details

In her exhibition, The Summons Has Reached Us, wren ross creates drawings that are responses to bone oracles, sangoma, and other methods of divination that employ the collections and casting of small objects, which are practiced in many cultures across the world. “Traditionally, bone oracle casting utilizes sets of personal totems collected by the reader and strewn across a flat surface to be read and interpreted,” says ross. “Often these sets of objects had standard inclusions among readers – coins, animal bones, smooth stones, shells, seeds. But more often each set of objects was assembled by the reader according to the chance encounters by which they were introduced.” Presently, humanity is redefining its relationship with the environment, with the non-human world, and with technology. In this exhibition, ross presents a collection of visual totems to aid in this search.

Just hours after being sworn in, President Joe Biden signed an executive order calling for a review of the boundaries for Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments. The monuments—designated by Barack Obama in 2016 and Bill Clinton in 1996—were reduced by roughly 2 million acres by former president Donald Trump, and the executive order is seen as move towards restoring the original boundaries.⁠

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."⁠

"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."⁠
