Friday, July 24, 2009 call for entries

It’s time again to take the pulse of Utah’s young generation of artists. In 2002, Artists of Utah opened its first 35 x 35 exhibition. Held at Artspace Forum Gallery, the exhibit presented works by thirty-five Utah artists under the age of 35, ranging from contemporary landscapes to large-scale multi-media pieces. After 7 years, Artists of Utah is once again bringing the younger generation of Utah artists into the spotlight. This exhibit, to be held at the Salt Lake Arts Council’s Finch Lane Gallery in September, will consider all modes of artistic expression alive in Utah, from photography and painting, to video works and performance.

Submission deadline is August 15, 2009. You will also find the call for entries and information about the exhibit online at

If (like our board members) you're already old enough to run for president, please forward this call to your younger friends, colleagues and students.

Standing Still Standing

What: Standing Still Standing

Where: Provo Theatre Company (105 East 100 North)

Why: In the last year or so, there has been an influx of new plays premiering in the Provo area. To the surprise of virtually everyone involved, many of them are really, QUITE good. This one has the creative team of one of the most successful, Little Happy Secrets, behind it, as well as people who've worked on local shows such as Rabbit Hole, The Fading Flower, and BYU's popular Divine Comedy group. This new comedy is bound to set the standards for new play development in Provo area even higher.

When: July 10th-July 27th - Thursdays & Fridays at 7:30 PM, Saturdays at 2:00 PM and 7:30 PM, and Mondays at 7:30 PM. (Running time for the show is approximately 90 minutes.)

How: Tickets are $12 general admission (Thursday – Saturday, Monday). Preview tickets are $5. Student/Senior discount is $2 off the regular ticket price with a valid ID. Group rates of 5 or more are available. Advanced purchase is recommended as performances may sell out. To purchase tickets or for more information visit or

Who: The creative team has given their production a PG-rating for mature themes, mild language, and brief drug references.
A press release for Standing Still Standing describes the show:

Moving between the waking world, the online community, and dreams, Standing Still Standing is the story of a marriage under siege from illness and insecurity. Ben and Grace have been married for three years—he’s slept through two. At least, that’s how it feels when you’re only awake three hours out of the day and the rest are filled with visions of Billy Joel, the Pope, and a cheese woman from Minnesota. Standing Still Standing is a comedy about love and life…and staying awake for both.

For more information, check out the show's blog at (be sure to check out the hillarious Jen Vlogs series). Also, for those of you interested in the creative process, be sure to attend the production's free post-show discussions on Thursdays, July 16 and 23; Saturday matinees, July 11, 18 and 25; and Mondays, July 13, 20 and 27.

Standing Still Standing is produced by Bluelight Stage and Leilani Productions with additional support from the New Play Project and Brigham Young University Experimental Theatre Company.

Hope this isnt too narcissistic of me but... Check this out!

This is from Square Magazine, taken down in the Sego Studios. And yes the picture to the right is me, but I am not the one painting it. I cant help it if other people think I'm that cool.

Below is the text of the article but check out the full issue online!

Conrad Nebeker
by Jamie Robinson
Over the past few years, the beautification of Provo’s Downtown has become the artistic brainchild of artist Conrad Nebeker because of his belief that art unifies and beautifies a community. Conrad is not only the Art Director of the Downtown Business Alliance, but also a successful painter, whose large paintings dot the map across Utah and a few other states.
J.R. What have you been up to these days?
C.N. These past few weeks I have been involved in setting up the “art chase,” which is a special edition of the gallery stroll. We encourage locals to go around to every single art gallery, and you are entered in a drawing to win prizes if you go to all seventeen galleries.
J.R. Where do you see downtown Provo in five years?
C.N. In five years? I want to see it as bustling as any downtown can be. I’d like to see everything full. I’d like to see artwork up in public places. I’d like to see Center Street really grow in the gallery stroll to really get people going to not only appreciate the arts, but also support local businesses as well.
J.R. What is your personal favorite part of downtown Provo?
C.N. I’d say the old buildings. Unfortunately, in the past some have been taken down. We try and help restore old ones to their historic nature and help local businesses and galleries move in. A recent study showed that 17% of these historic buildings are vacant.
J.R. Word on the street is, your favorite TV show is The Office. What character is most like you, and why?
C.N. I relate best with Andy…dumb pranks, and kind of obtuse humor.
J.R. Do the clothes make the man?
C.N. Yes, they do.
J.R. What else do you want the world to know?
C.N. Art is the integral part of a successful downtown, and it’s great to see people get excited as they get involved with it. I personally am excited for the downtown; it has a lot going for it. The arts are just a great way to communicate with people and create a unity that is self-sustaining, and it keeps people involved within that community.

"Healing and Community Building Through Creative Action"

Lily Yeh
Artist, social change activist, founder- The Village of Arts and Humanities, and Barefoot Artists

“When I see brokenness, poverty and crime in inner cities, I also see the enormous potential and readiness for transformation and rebirth. We are creating an art form that comes from the heart and reflects the pain and sorrow of people's lives. It also expresses joy, beauty, and love. This process lays the foundation of building a genuine community in which people are reconnected with their families, sustained by meaningful work, nurtured by the care of each other and will together raise and educate their children. Then we witness social change in action.” - Lily Yeh

Utah Concerts!

Utah Concerts was formed to help get the word out about good (primarily indie) shows in Utah. They are less common around here than in places like Seattle, San Francisco, etc. but sometimes we get lucky.

The first list is for bigger names, and the second one is for local bands/artists. There is a surprisingly good but underrated local music scene here and I think we should all take advantage of that, and of course support them in what they do.

These lists change all the time. To get the most up-to-date information come back frequently, and of course do your own research and let us know what you find! I have also started sending out messages generally once a week with what's going on in the following two weeks. Also, you should invite all of your friends.

Most of this list came from,, and However, the best way to make sure we don't miss any, especially for bands that aren't as well known, is to visit their specific websites. Please add to this list!

Disclaimer time! If you think there should be some more on here that were in fact listed on the websites I visited or whatever either I haven't heard of them (likely), I haven't checked those sites in a while, or I don't think they're within this kind of genre, which seems to be mostly indie-ish, folky, I guess.. I don't know, whatever. But yeah so bands that I don't think fit at all with that I probably won't add, but it's not because I'm a jerk (I may even like them myself), I just want this to be useful. And I mean if you want to make another group for other kinds of concerts I think that is great.

4-2 - Fictionist (formerly Good Morning Maxfield) - Velour (Provo) - Free! The band bought all of the tickets as a thank-you to their fans.. I've never heard of that

To get tickets to the bigger shows anyway, you can usually go to,, and sometimes It seems like ticketmaster is the worst with service fees, then smithstix. Please correct me if this has changed.

Lecture TONIGHT at Sego!

Remember that TONIGHT at 7pm, Marisa Olson will be lecturing at the Sego Art Center. We will actually be just one door South of the art center, where legion skate shop used to be.

Make sure you come early, as we will be starting on time at 7pm, and so you can get a good seat.

If you only go to one lecture this year at Sego, this would be a good one to attend.

Below is a bio of Marisa, in case you were wondering why we brought her out here. She is truly a scholar of new media art, and will be speaking about our April exhibit, FORMS OF MELANCHOLY, an international new media group exhibit curated by Chris Coy.

"Marisa Olson's work combines performance, video, net art, sound, drawing, and installation to address the cultural history of technology, the politics of participation within pop culture, and the aesthetics of failure.

Her work has recently been presented by the Whitney Museum of American Art, Centre Pompidou-Paris, New Museum of Contemporary Art, 52nd International Biennale di Venezia, National Museum of Contemporary Art (Athens, Greece), Edith Russ-Haus fur Medienkunst, Nederlands Instituut voor Mediakunst/ Montevideo, the British Film Institute, the Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive, the Sundance Film Festival, and elsewhere. She is also a founding member of the Nasty Nets "internet surfing club" whose new DVD recently premiered at the New York Underground Film Festival. Her work has been written about in ArtForum, Art in America, Folha de Sao Paolo, Liberation-Paris, the Village Voice, New York Magazine, and elsewhere. While Wired has called her both funny and humorous, the New York Times has called her "anything but stupid." Marisa studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths College-London, History of Consciousness at UC Santa Cruz, and Rhetoric at UC Berkeley. Her critiques of contemporary art and digital visual culture have extended to writing for Flash Art, Art Review, Afterimage, Planet, and Art on Paper and to curating exhibitions and programs at the Guggenheim, SFMOMA, White Columns, Artists Space, the Performa Biennial, SF Camerawork, and Rhizome.

Marisa was born in Germany and lives in New York."

See you at the lecture!

and dont forget... Gallery Stroll is both tomorrow, and the next post ;)

Gallery Stroll/Art Chase

-April 3rd -17 locations -dozens of prizes -well over 1,000 people expected -Art for everyone

Get your card punched at all of the locations and then turn them in to be eligible for the prizes

Just one of many shows...
On April 3, 2009, the Sego Art Center will open Forms of Melancholy, an international new media exhibit curated by Chris Coy, a Salt Lake City based artist and curator who participated in the New Museum of Contemporary Art's inaugural exhibition Unmonumental.

An opening reception will be held that evening from 6-9pm in association with Provo's Gallery Stroll.

In conjunction with the exhibit, at 7pm on April 2, Coy will join in a discussion at Sego with the respected media arts scholar Marisa Olson. Ms. Olson is currently a contributor to Rhizome, and has curated exhibits and programs at many institutions including the Guggenheim, SFMOMA, White Columns, Artists Space, the Performa Biennial, and SF Camerawork.

Forms of Melancholy will remain open to the public through April 25 and will be viewable from 2 - 8pm Tuesday through Saturday, Mondays by appointment. Special appointments can be made by contacting Jason Metcalf at 801.599.0680.

At, virtual visitors upload personal photos, graphics or text to a selection of on-demand products, creating instantaneously customized objects. When seen as a tool for artistic production, Café Press proposes an interesting center for a discussion of object creation "after the Internet." The site and its user community celebrate the ease and immediacy of invisibly manufactured items - t-shirts, teddy bears, mugs - made in narrowly prescribed forms. Adding to the discussion of pitiable commodity, philosopher Nicolas Bourriaud brings to light the consequences of the advances we have made... Advances in technology have "blindly replace[d] human labour by machines," leaving us with mere "forms of melancholy."

This month's installation at Sego offers up these "forms of melancholy" as designed by the artists in the exhibition. Given no regulations beyond the limitations of customization on, the artists have designated works for manufacture and, more specifically, purchase on the website and in the space of the Art Center.
