LIVING WITH FINE ART
BY SABINA DANA PLASSE
Park City galleries and artists are known the world over for their masterful fine art exhibits and creations. From sculpture, photography, painting, and mixed media, the influence of mountain-town living and the environs of Utah are an inspiration as well as a lure for many artists who create unique and original works found throughout Park City. In addition, discovering rare works of art or works by emerging artists throughout Park City can be an extraordinary experience for art collectors and homeowners who enjoy buying and investing in fine art. There’s nothing like encountering a magnificent artist who is just on the precipice of stardom. It’s one of many reasons why mountain living is so special, especially in Park City. Take one of the many community Park City Gallery Association Gallery Strolls, every last Friday of the month from 6 to 9pm throughout the year, and discover the fine art that Park City has to offer.
625 MAIN STREET • PARK CITY • 435.649.4927 • TERZIANGALLERIES.COM
Terzian Galleries presents the best of emerging and established artists in the American West and beyond at its Main Street Park City location where gallery artists are often in attendance for the Park City Gallery Stroll. This summer Terzian Galleries is excited to present new exhibitions and new works from its gallery artists including Pam Nichols.
ARTIST PAM NICHOLS
Based outside of Portland, Oregon, Nichols’ encaustic works are a celebration of her enjoyment of the creative process. She is known for her “rustitorium,” where she stores metal pieces for use in her encaustic paintings—a method that has earned her the name “The Queen of Rust” in the encaustic artist community. Nichols combines metals and found objects, which allow her to extract rust powders. The encaustic process for Nichols takes many hours, but the results are tantalizing and alluring to all who see. Nichols will present and be in attendance at Terzian Galleries for the Gallery Stroll on Friday, July 29, for an opening reception. In addition, Nichols will present an encaustic demonstration for the weekend of July 30.
ARTIST CALEB MEYER
Terzian Galleries will also present an opening exhibition by Caleb Meyer. Meyer, a native of Hailey, Idaho, in the Wood River Valley, lives in western Montana and has always had a thirst for the outdoors. After graduating college in 2006, Meyer apprenticed with nationally-recognized oil painter Robert Moore. “The painting process is like building a house; a painter must understand the principles of design to create a strong painting, much like a carpenter must understand the principles of architecture to build a strong house. Robert gave me the tools and concepts to construct great paintings.” Meyer’s impressionistic style offers a refreshing perspective to everyday life and happenings.
ARTIST ZACHARY PROCTOR
Looking ahead to 2017, Terzian Galleries will present new works by popular artist Zachary Proctor. Proctor’s paintings are a play with memory and reality—at once nostalgic and whimsical. “My intent as a painter is to arrest motion on canvas by artificial means, to capture life and hold it fixed. I am interested in making paintings of personal experiences, some as I remember and others as I prefer to remember them,” Proctor says. “Referencing family photo albums, contemporary imagery, and historical photographs, I aim to create a nostalgic world I once imagined now conceivable and constructed with paint. As I reflect on memories, I hope to bring to life a personal mythology to better understand my reality,” says Proctor. Proctor’s previous exhibition at Terzian Galleries sold out.
FATALI GALLERY SACRED EARTH IMAGES
556 MAIN STREET • PARK CITY • 877.250.8848 • FATALI.COM
Known as the Light Hunter, Fatali is a photographer and filmmaker who paints with light. His love of the Southwest has allowed him to spend decades capturing images, which bear his signature style. Fatali’s passion and mission for photography come from his deep appreciation for the natural world most apparent in his desert imagery where he captures the innate desert beauty through the curves and waves of the landscape and the natural structures that exist. Created by the natural elements—the sun, rain, wind, and snow—Fatali’s desert imagery is masterful and dreamy yet presents a stillness and solitude, which captures the heart of so many people and their love for this wondrous landscape. On the opposite pendulum, Fatali’s landscapes of the region’s mountains, lakes, rivers, and forests are rich in detail and life as well as in motion and energy with brilliant color.Fatali says “Photography has been a great way to express this love affair with nature. For me, it’s merely a tool to see the world in a self-discovering way, and to share nature’s phenomenon. My passion is not photography—it is for creation and the spirit of nature, which connects us all, that inspires me.” Visit Fatali’s gallery on Main Street in Park City to experience his latest work, as he’s always presenting new works and exhibitions.
“MY PASSION IS NOT PHOTOGRAPHY—IT IS FOR CREATION AND THE SPIRIT OF NATURE, WHICH CONNECTS US ALL, THAT INSPIRES ME.” –FATALI
