UPCOMING: Susan Belau, in the Upper Gallery.|0| The San Fransisco artist has a MFA in Printmaking from the Univeristy of Nebrask-Lincoln, and has trained as a printer at Paulson Press in Berkeley. Belau’s prints and works on paper begin with observational drawings that are then traced, re-traced, edited and reassembled. Out of this process springs the conceptual basis for the work: the experience of time, imperfections in observation, and the shifts in recording as stories are told and re-told. Her subjects are plants and structures found in the domesticated natural world – the urban garden, a suburban yard or a city park. Subjects are selected for their shapes, their lines and divisions of space. Belau’s work focuses on the connection between the literal descriptions of interval—the spaces between branches, negative shapes, layers of ink—and the abstract and intangible notions of time, anticipation and moments lost. February 16 - March 5, with a reception February 16, 5-6:30 pm.

Some are members of the Utah Quilt Guild Round Robin, and others belong to local quilting chapters. The pieces are owned by Kaye Evans of Ogden. Evans selected the theme and the fabric for all the quilts. A quilter works about a month on her portion (block) of the quilt. It usually takes nine months to complete one round robin. All of Evans’ quilts were returned as blocks, and she assembled, quilted, bound, added embellishments as needed and labeled them. She says, “What fun when you open the mail each month to see what surprises are inside.
