CBD Bros.– CBD Bros. is a new art stroll stop on Historic 25th Street. For the November Art Stroll they will feature work from Sarah Ann Larsen. Here’s is some information about her. She was born in Englewood, Colorado. Her family moved to the Salt Lake Valley shortly after. Ann began her hobby in art at the age of six and has been in love with it since. After high school, her art began to take on a more significant role in her life. She started showing publicly and has been invited into galleries and festivals around the valley.
Sarah's paintings are all done with acrylic on canvas. Each piece is an abstract interpretation of the places she's seen and experiences from travelling the world. Her style is unmistakably her own. Every painting has a vibrant combination of colors that complement one another. Dissonant, single brush strokes coalesce and become a painting as fascinating as its subject matter. You can find more of Sarah's art on her IG page @INCITECITYART and online www.incitecityart.com.CBD Bros.- 135 Historic 25th Street, Ogden

Eccles Community Art Center – This November, the Eccles Art Center, will feature the exhibit “Go Figure! Five artists interpret the figure in paint” which will include art by Terrece Beesley, Sue Martin, Mary Pussey, Joy Nunn and Joan Zone. A reception for the artists and an evening of holiday shopping is planned for the Art Stroll, November 1, 2019 from 5 to 8 p.m. The exhibits will continue through November 27, 2019.
The Eccles Art Center staff approached Terrece Beesley to curate this exhibits. She reveals “When five artists set off to interpret the figure in paint, you may be sure there will be some surprises. There are as many interpretations as there are artists and subjects. Who knew “figures” might include dogs and lizards?”
Beesley, who included her work in the exhibit, continues “I am fascinated by scenes with which we are familiar, the icons of our daily life. The people, places, and objects in my paintings speak volumes about our culture…. I usually combine several photos for my final drawing. I look intently at my subjects, striving for the correct perspective, attitude, or sly smile that will bring them to life.”
Sue Martin of her paintings divulges, “Ever since my sister and I rescued a dog early this year, I’ve become fascinated with dog-dog and owner-owner interactions. I’ve spent a lot of time taking pictures of dogs and their owners, and I’ve enjoyed painting this series of “Best Friends,” with an emphasis on the dogs.”
Artist Mary Pussey explains “In recent times, I have found a new interest in having figures in my watercolors…. What I paint is a representation of what I see and feel, with no attempt at a realistic likeness. So, these figures are representations of feelings as I paint en plein air and in the studio. Go Figure!”
In the same matter, artist Joy Nunn notes, “Painting figures is always a challenge and, for me, a journey…. Lately, I have decided to abandon the restrictions of realism and have been exploring the relationship between the linear qualities of a figure and elements of abstraction around or with it, in order to develop the actual subject of my work which is an expression of a thought, feeling, or mood.”
Joan Zone finishes “My figures are seldom real but, more often, my imagination at play. I simplify shapes, exaggerate colors, add texture and pattern to create figures with attitude, emotion, or a story to tell. Often, I place them in whimsical context…. I’ve been influenced by the abstracted and whimsical work of such master artists as Picasso and Chagall.
The Eccles Art Center invites you to their galleries. Regular galleries hours are Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The art center will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday, November 28 through December 1, 2019.

Here is a bit of information about the artist: “Since I was in the first grade, I was super creative and my imagination was, and still is today, as real and as vibrant as ever. I am a multimedia artist, not bound by medium or material. Custom co-creativity between me and my client. Art of all mediums. Drawing, painting, jewelry, sculpture, film, music, and co-collaboration with other creatives. I practice art through focused workshops using a variety of methods incorporating movement, nature, meditation, breathing, visualization and healing art therapies. Art has been my life. It has taught me many lessons about both myself and my relationship with the world and others. A universal craft treasured by every culture throughout the ages of history. It is what unites us all and heals us from our own hopelessness. I appreciate and love what art itself has taught me despite being frustrated with my own paralyzing fear of imperfection. It is through art that I am challenged in what I like to call “analysis paralysis.” The time spent on overthinking and striving to perfect my creation. Art is this challenging beauty, and a useful tool that must be created intentionally. With a freedom that allows expression of self and feelings that can be a reflection or fear or hope. It tells us a story. For it is an expression of being. A time to create a space for your brain to imagine, visualize, conceptualize, experiment, create and execute with its own divine abilities. Your potential is then tested through trial and error and you determine to keep trying. These are concepts and skills that can then be applied to all areas of life. We all have a vision in our head. But will we ever reach perfection? We can strive for it but the real question is, why? Why create and what will its purpose be? It is what I love and why I will continue to learn, grow, fail, promote and support art as I use it as one of many tools to help heal the world. Art to heal. Art for a cause. Art not for the sake of art, but with deeper purpose and intention centered around love and courage. Simply to create and live by the Golden Rule.” - Joe Anglim

Here is a bit of info about their artist: I'm Kelsey, an artist based in Ogden, Utah. I’ve been passionate about art since I was 9 years old and have continued to grow and create since. I consider myself to be an abstract artist, though I love portraits and plant-life. My favorite mediums include acrylic, ink, gesso, and colored pencil. I typically use canvas and thick drawing paper for my pieces. I have experimented with other mediums but tend to stick to my favorites when making new creations.
I draw much of my inspiration from different musicians and the beautiful Ogden valley. I can’t say how many times I’ve listened to a new album on repeat and painted something fun. I hope that my art inspires others, evokes emotion, and brings joy to those who see it.”
Outside, in Origin-Alley Art Gallery, they will display new artwork from Rich Ramos, Nezak, Jaroh and other local artists. They will provide outdoor seating in the alley as well as live music during the stroll.
