What's Up and Upcoming Outside Salt Lake

of Centerville's Marilyn Read. Read's images, created with bright color
and strong line, evoke travel through exotic imagery.
LOGAN: CHARLES GARABEDIAN WORKS ON PAPER:
1965-2001 is on exhibt at the
Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art
at Utah State University. The exhibt features nearly 30 paintings
by this senior member of the West Coast art scene. The artworks are
crowded compositions, often featuring richly-colored and fanciful figures
in action. His earlier works are narrative, inspired by experiences during
the Second World War as Staff Sergeant in the United States Air Force.
There is a sense of tragedy that results from the suggestion of — and not
the depiction of — aggression and violence. Viewers see the consequences
of conflict, a subject of persistent awareness of the artist and society;
and sometimes, there is a comic insertion of incongruent elements. More
recent works are based upon Garabedian’s reading of Homer’s The Iliad and
The Odyssey, and reveal a decidedly modern interpretation of the Grecian
characters in imagined landscapes.
