Grounds for Coffee on 25th Street -  The featured artist for the March art stroll is Erica Lyon.                                                                                                                                               This show is a culmination of work from over the last thirteen years that I have lived in Ogden. Prints, originals, and something new - painting on copper. I work mostly with mineral-based pigments that are leftover tailing from mines in Utah, so copper felt like the next thing to explore. I love to create a flow throughout my work as I try to find balance in the control of ink lines and letting go of watercolor. During FFAS I will be presenting in Moab at the Utah Art Educators Conference about Art and Empathy a unit we recently completed at the school I teach at in town, Ben Lomond High School. Live music will be happening from 6-8 pm thanks to Josh and his daughter, so definitely stop by the stroll listen to the music and enjoy!

Made from floral fabric and discarded textiles, Kostianovsky’s sculpture transforms symbols of carnage into visions of regeneration and rebirth, as exotic birds and vegetation emerge from forms akin to hanging meat. Kostianovsky’s work for the exhibition touches on strong central themes including violence against humans and animals, consumer culture, and environmental devastation.

Art Box - Art Box is excited to be featuring the charming work of artist Tiffney Hassing for March's First Friday Art Stroll!

Tiffney has always enjoyed working with her hands. For many years, sewing was the means by which she expressed her creativity, selecting fabrics of many textures and patterns, then piecing them together into one coherent piece. She then moved on to work with stained glass. With the many steps involved, Tiffney found this medium very challenging. In addition, there was the risk of cutting or burning herself!

Now, Tiffney paints, and she loves it! With no sewing or soldering, she enjoys applying paint directly onto the intended surface and working with the paint until she gets it just right. Tiffney enjoys painting in a Folk Art style, with lots of dreamy colors, and interesting lines and shapes.

We hope you can join us at The Monarch to see Tiffney’s beautiful work in person

 Utah Women Making History-Myra Powell Gallery

“Utah Women Making History,” which includes Utah artist Brooke Smart’s illustrations of Utah women (and a few men) who worked throughout the 20th century to advocate for women and advance their communities, will open on February 3rd, 2023 at Union Station’s Myra Powell Gallery. 

These illustrations were commissioned by Better Days 2020, a nonprofit dedicated to popularizing Utah women’s history and spearheading Utah’s statewide celebrations of these significant anniversaries.  Utah Women Making History will be on display until March 9th

The year 2020 will mark three significant women’s rights anniversaries. Utahns will commemorate the 150th anniversary of Utah women’s first votes, when 25 women cast ballots in the Salt Lake City election on February 14, 1870, and became the first American women to vote under an equal suffrage law. The 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which extended voting rights to women in the United States when it was ratified on August 26, 1920, and the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act, which provided needed protections for minority voting rights on August 6, 1965, will also happen in 2020. 

Utah women were at the forefront of the national suffrage movement in many ways, but the fight for women’s voting rights was just one step in a long list of rights that had to be gained. Even before the passage of the 19th Amendment, and especially since, Utah women have worked to better their communities in the arts, business, education, law, medicine, the military, music, writing, politics, religious and community organizations, science, sports, and more.
