The Eccles Community Art Center –

As the leaves change color and fall, we begin to think of cooler temperatures. We invite you inside the Eccles Art Center’s main gallery to enjoy the warmth while viewing art quilts, woven or knitted wraps and other items displayed in the Wasatch Fibre Arts competitive exhibition. The Carriage House Gallery will continue the fiber theme with Wearable Art created by Terri Chugg.  The Carriage House Gallery will have the added splash of color provided by Terrece Beesley’s art center students with their watercolor art. At the art stroll, there will be a reception for the artists and public from 5 - 8p.m. Exhibits continue on display through Saturday, October 27, 2018.

The Wasatch Fibre Artists meet at the Eccles Art Center, 2580 Jefferson, and in Ogden on the third Wednesday of the month at 12:30 p.m.  Two years ago, the members of this group approached the art center staff about sponsoring a fiber art competition.  The competition was open to all textile artists residing in the state of Utah.  Original works tasteful and of artistic value, that are not from a kit or copyrighted directions in any textile medium including art quilting, basketry, bead making, crochet, crewel, embroidery, hand woven, needlework, needle felting, knitting, tatting, lace making, soft sculpture and more are likely to be seen, and /or available to purchase.

Dr. Judy Easley, artists and Professor Emeritus of English, at Weber State University will judge the competition. The recipient’s names for first, second, third and honorable mentions are being posted at the reception.

Artist, Terri Chugg began creating wearable art with the use of silk scraps from India to sew decorative scarves.  She began displaying and selling the scarves through the Carriage House Gallery.  She has since added bags and purses with her latest addition to be duster length vests.  “Why not add a little art to your wardrobe.”

Terrece Beesley is a popular watercolor instructor at the Eccles Art Center.  She has assisted numerous students in the exploration of painting with watercolor. Of her students, Terrece says, “My painting students have each developed their own unique style of painting.  I am constantly amazed by their skill and creativity.”

Shaw Gallery at Weber State University -

The Mary Elizabeth Dee Shaw Gallery at Weber State University presents the 2018 Biennial Faculty Exhibition from Friday, September 14 through Saturday, November 10, 2018 in the Ethel Wattis Kimball Visual Arts Building. The exhibition is free and open to the public. The exhibition features recent art by nearly 30 artists teaching in the Department of Visual Art and Design (DOVAD) with concentrations in ceramics, digital media, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, performance and graphic design.

“Students are often unaware of the most important source of energy that is so evident here in the teaching environment; namely, the intensity and drive that each faculty member brings to his or her own studio practice. This faculty is actively involved in the creation and exhibition of contemporary art, and the Biennial Faculty Exhibition provides a valuable opportunity for students to see just how the ideas discussed in the classroom are manifested in the studios of our faculty,” Matthew Choberka, Professor and Chair of the Department of Visual Art and Design.

The Biennial Faculty Exhibition includes a wide range of media and artistic styles that reflect the breadth of art practices. These faculty members teach over 3500 students and mentor 300 art majors annually, developing art and design professionals with critical thinking skills through educational experiences based in history, theory and practice.

A free yoga class will take place Monday evenings from 5-9p.m. during the Biennial Faculty Exhibition and will offer visitors a unique chance to experience the exhibition by connecting mind, body and art! All ages and abilities are welcome, with yoga mats provided. Parking adjacent to the Kimball Visual Arts center is free after 4 p.m. on weekdays and all day on Saturdays.

Regular hours for the Mary Elizabeth Dee Shaw Gallery are M-F from 11a.m. - 5p.m., Saturdays from 12 - 5p.m., and First Friday Art stroll from 5 - 9p.m. during exhibitions that take place September – April.

Shepherd Union Art Gallery –

Will be open for Art Stroll showing a timeline of the Diversity Conference’s posters throughout the years.

Shepherd Union Art Gallery near the Fireplace Lounge, 3910 W Campus Dr. Ogden, UT 84408

The Argo House –

Will continue with Jaxsen Layton: Fluid Cognition, a collection of paintings, drawings, and prints from Mr. Layton, a 2017 graduate of Weber State University. Fluid Cognition will be open Friday, October 5th from 6-8 pm. The exhibition is free and open to the public.

With an emphasis on two-dimensional artwork, Jaxsen uses drawing and painting as a vehicle to display the dichotomy and nuances of life. Biology, organic forms, anatomy, media and subcultures influence him in his life such as skateboard graphics, and music. Artists such as Inka Essenhigh, Ed Templeton, and James Jean, inspire and influence his work as well.

Fluid Cognition is replete with imagined organic shapes, with references to both fantastical creatures and real biologist. Brilliantly colored paintings contrast with monochrome drawings and psychedelic-patterned prints in this varied exhibition. Also varied are the artist’s techniques: hand-drawing/painting and digital manipulation are all used to great effect.

The Argo House – 529 25th Street, Ogden, UT 84401

The Local Artisan Collective -

Welcome to the October Art Stroll. We will be open for the Gallery Stroll on October 5 from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. Our featured artist this month is Joe Eilander from The Shark Shack.
 I am 15 years old. I love animals, drawing, wood burning and all things art. I cannot remember a time when I have not drawn, it is just what I do. I enjoy Zentangle. It is enjoyable, relaxing and you cannot mess it up because it is a doodle.
Animals fascinate me. I love to draw and study them, discover their traits and learn their habits. I would say reptiles and birds are my favorite to draw -- all those scales and feathers.

I sell prints of my drawings. I draw in pencil, then take it to the computer to make it look the way I want it to look, then print them. I find this gives me a lot of freedom as an artist and I still am able to sell my work at an affordable price.

My wood burnings for the most part on reclaimed wood-- pallets, wood siding old logs people are going to throw away. It is all good and I am willing to work with whatever comes my way. I do use some new woods, as people seem to enjoy my wood spoons and boxes. Each piece is an original and handcrafted freehand.
I am starting to teach classes. I love seeing people learn a new art. Most people do not realize how fun this art can be. It is time consuming, as it is a slow art. My large pallet pieces can take 30 hours or more for me to do. I draw an outline in pencil of what I want to create as I have discovered that things move as you fill things in so an outline keeps things in proportion and where you want them. Then I burn the wood just as you would draw with a pen or pencil. It is a lot of fun to see the animals come to life.

I have been selling my artwork for 4 years at local farmers markets and shows. After 2 years, I decided this is what I want to do with my life. I cannot imagine my life without art. So here I am, learning all I can about promoting my business, learning social media and getting to know amazing people.

If you are by the shop when I am in, say, "Hi." I love to show people what I am working on.

Zucca Underground –

Our October art stroll artist is Ryan Bouman. "Ryan is a local artist who primarily makes his living as a tattoo artist in the local Ogden area. He has been tattooing for 12 years and now is the owner of One Thousand Cranes Tattoo Studio. Ryan has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a 2Dimensional emphasis from Weber State University, which he received in 2014. Since then his artistic focus has been on the duality of chaos and order, as well as submission and control. Not only the relationship between these concepts but also the grey area were the lines blur and definite positions on these issues are difficult to find. His recent work explores not only traditional tattoo inspired imagery and an interest in eastern philosophies, but also the experience that one being tattooed will engage in while having to fully submit control to another individual. This submission is unique, spiritual, painful and with the right artist, completely rewarding.
