Park City's Phoenix Gallery recently opened an exhibition of paintings by Utah artist Jamie Kirkland. After recently graduating from the University of Utah, Kirkland has exhibited in a number of juried exhibitions in Utah, Colorado and New Mexico. This is her first one-person show in Utah.

Park City's Meyer gallery presents the atmospheric landscapes of painters Seth Winegar and Dave Hall. Winegar is a young artist who is becoming quickly well-known in the intermountain west and a favorite of Meyer Gallery. Hall has come to art later in life but has quickly picked up a devoted following for his landscapes of Utah and Montana.

OGDEN: The Eccles Community Art Center will be featuring the work of Vernal artist, Linda Lee Shimmin, through the month of March.  Shimmins, a graduate of BYU and USU, paints in a style influenced by early 20th-century French art. April will see the exhibition "Mystic Men and Wonder Women" featuring the works of Centerville's Marilyn Read. Read's images, created with bright color and strong line, evoke travel through exotic imagery.

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.
