LOCAL SLC ARTISTS ON MY WALL

Art By Local Salt Lake City Artists

SLC Local Artists Gallery Wall

I finally, FINALLY, have the gallery wall in my office started. It’s been about a year in the making, but I had a very productive trip to the Salt & Honey market at The Gateway last month and picked up three more pieces to finish out my micro-collection. Thank goodness for prints because, let’s be honest, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to afford to support local artists. Now I have enough to create a little gallery wall and I’m really into it. Check out these gorgeous pieces by local Salt Lake City artists.

I’ve admired Bacee’s Panda Propaganda work for a while now and knew I’d get one of his pieces eventually. This was actually the first piece of local art I got when a kickass friend of mine bought it for me at the flea market last year (or was that two years ago?). I loved the colors and have always thought the octopus was a fascinating animal, so I’m pretty stoked on it.

The next three are the ones I purchased at the Salt & Honey pop-up market at The Gateway. I went to that market with no intention of buying anything but these three pieces wouldn’t let me leave without them. The floral print is by Emily Fox King. I love the bright, lively colors and sorta-abstract feel of it. The small illustration caught my eye as I was leaving the market. It’s by Chloe Westenhaver and it’s so simple but so charming I couldn’t leave it there. The elephant print was just one of the many animal prints I wanted to get from this artist. Sadly, I seem to have forgotten to write down the artist’s info, so if anyone recognizes this piece please let me know. I’d love to properly credit the artist.

I won the horse-girl print during the fundraising auction after the holiday Municipal Ballet performance. I’ve never even entered, let alone won, an auction before so it was a pretty exciting night for me. Unfortunately, I don’t recall the artist who created this one, either. But it’s so whimsical and weird, I think it might be my favorite piece.

The small portrait of Iris Apfel by Izzy Fernandez is one I got at the Create + Resist pop-up shop. I mean, how could I pass up Iris, right?

My gallery wall is definitely not finished yet. I plan on adding more pieces as I find them, so if you now of any local artists you think I should check out, let me know in the comments.
