Dave Hall Studio Space

Dave Hall's Studio
a photographic essay by Steve Coray

Dave Hall shares a small studio space in the Rockwood Studios Building in Sugar House. Because of the limited area, Hall must make use of every available space for his paints, brushes, tools and supplies. Fitting a lot into small packages comes naturally to this plein-air painter who enjoys depicting the river landscapes he takes equal delight in fishing. As you'll see in his upcoming two-person exhibition with Hadley Rampton at Phillips Gallery (opening May 18), Hall has been painting on larger canvases these days, which, by necessity, have spilled over into the studio hallway for storage purposes.

Feature: On the Spot
Hadley Rampton

Hadley Rampton
is a young landscape artist who has been attracting a lot of attention. She will be showing her plein-air work in an exhibition with landscape artist Dave Hall at Phillips Gallery that opens May 18th.

What hangs above your mantel?

Unfortunately I don't have a mantel, (no fireplace), but I do have several wonderful paintings hanging by a variety of Utah Artists.

What is your favorite building in Utah?

I would have to say the Salt Lake Public Library for it's great design and for what it provides to the public.

What is the most memorable exhibit you've seen recently?

A Giacometti exhibit I happened to stumble upon last May in a small town called Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic. Along with being a wonderfully thought provoking exhibit, the unexpectedness of it definitely contributed to it's allure.
