Gallery Walk showcases ‘Pulp Reality’ and ‘Moving Heaven and Earth’
Friday, March 10, 2023


Gilman Contemporary is taking a look at “Pulp Reality.” Suzanne Hazlett is showcasing new art forms inspired by her love of rock climbing. And Andrzej Skorut and Seth Winegar will keep art lovers grounded with their colorful, somewhat abstract, landscapes of the Rocky Mountain West.

It’s all out there during tonight’s Gallery Walk from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 10, at various Ketchum galleries. Here are some highlights:

  • Gilman Contemporary, 661 Sun Valley Road, is hosting an exhibition called “Pulp Reality: Exploring Paper as a Medium.” It will feature works on paper by Jill Lear, Peter Clark, Jeri Eisenberg and Joanne Freeman. And Lear, a Sun Valley artist, will attend tonight’s Gallery Walk.

    London-based collage artist Peter Clark is known for his whimsical collages that use colored and patterned papers to create whimsical dogs and ducks. Jeri Eisenberg is a photographer who uses non-traditional and alternative photo-based techniques to produce large-scale abstracted images of the treed landscape captured with an oversized pinhole camera.

    Abstract painter Joanne Freeman ‘s paints are bold and colorful, grounded in architecture, popular culture and art history. And jill Lear is a painter who has focused on mapping trees to get viewers to think differently about nature.

  • Kneeland Gallery, 271 First Avenue North, is exhibiting works by Andrzej Skorut, Silas Thompson and Seth Winegar.

    Silas Thompson began to treasure the distinct birthmarks and icons of beautiful rivers, valleys and mountains that carve through the high desert and farmlands of the west on annual backpack trips with his father. His desire to create work that evokes a memory continues to be a driving force, which pushes Silas to be innovative in his choice of subject matter and composition.

    Andrzej Skorut was born and spent his early years in Krakow, Poland before immigrating to the U.S. in 1987. At first glance, his paintings appear to be simple landscapes but further study reveals that they are as abstract as they are representational.

    Utah artist Seth Winegar paints unique tonalist landscapes of the west, marked by broad brush strokes and subtle colors.

  • Friesen+Lantz, Sun Valley Road and First Avenue, features local artist Suzanne Hazlett, who is showcasing some new types of art for her, in addition to her encaustic and mixed media. The exhibition is titled “Moving Heaven and Earth.” The works are comprised of panels, even freestanding geometric pieces that tied together evoke thoughts of climbing a rock wall and more.

    This particular exhibition is influenced by stone, land formations, skyscapes, atmosphere, stars and nebulae, she says.

    “This is a rare body of work in an artist’s career—one that unequivocally marks a dramatic expansion in her craft and the beginning of an exciting chapter, said Gallery Owner Yanna Lantz.

    • Hemmings Gallery, 340 Walnut Ave., has an exhibition titled “Time Stands Still” designed to show work that captures the present fleeting moment while calling back through the ages in search of something timeless.

    Featured artists are Deb Bohrer, Pia Fries, Christopher Gibson, Willy Heeks, Jeff Juhlin, Phil Haleen, Valerie Stuart, John Zurier and West Walsworth.

  • Sun Valley Museum of Art, Fifth and Washington streets, is showcasing “The Color of Sound” one more time before the museum closes temporarilyon March 18 for remodeling. It is expected to reopen in late June, with staff working out of the Hailey Center at 2nd and Pine streets until then.

    “The Color of Sound” explores the relationships between art and the neurological phenomenon of synesthesia, which allows some people to experience one sense through another. Some artists, for instance, translate music into visual art form.

  • Gail Severn Gallery, 400 N. 1st Ave., is an uber exhibition of Gary Komarin’s post-painterly abstraction works. The son of a Czech architect and Viennese writer, Komarin has been at the forefront of contemporary art for more than a half century, his bold, colorful style recognized by collectors around the world.

    Viewers can also see works by Maggie Shafran, Carolyn Olbum, Kathy Moss, Betsy Margolius, Chris Maynard, Raphaelle Goethals, Nicholas Africano, Pegan Brooke and others.

  • Broschofsky Galleries, 360 East Avenue, will feature works by such Western artists as Russell Young, Russell Chatham and Edward Curtis.
