More New Studio Images

As I mentioned in my last post, here are a few more images. Nathan Bennett with a new patina painting that will be going to Munson Gallery in Santa Fa. Nathan just makes his work so rich and dimensional you could just walk right into them.

And just to keep me working on my lighting skills here in the studio, Andy Kosorok brings in his glass creations that always make me think once or twice how to best light to show his glass.

New Exhibits

We're excited here at Terra Nova Gallery. The response has been wonderful from the artists for our new Plein Air Provo exhibit! The weather looks to be great (well Friday might not be so good) and the painters are out. They will bring their newly created works of art in and the exhibit will open on Friday the 5th for the Downtown Provo Gallery Stroll. Stop in, cast your vote for the people's choice award and enjoy this wonderful exhibit.

Dahrl Thomson, one of our clients who we shoot for at Hawkinson Photography is also opening a new exhibit this Friday. Dahrl will be exhibiting with Jennifer Rasmussen at the Rose Wagner Art Gallery in Salt lake City. The exhibit will run from October 5th through December 28th, 2007.

Dream Dialog

I've been busy shooting in the studio. Two artists that have exhibited at Terra Nova Gallery have an exhibit at the Bountiful Davis Art Center. Anne Gregerson & Marilyn Read open their exhibit Dream Dialogue on September 7th.

Anne Gregerson
Dream Dialogue features work by Anne Gregerson and Marilyn Read. Anne was born and raised in Idaho. She studied art at the Tucson Museum of Art School and Pima College in Arizona. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in sculpture at Brigham Young University in 1997. She taught art in Utah schools for several years, and now works as an artist full time in her home studio. Fired clay is her primary medium and the subject matter is most often the female human figure.

Marilyn Read
Marilyn Read is a native of Ogden, Utah. At age 20 she moved to Hawaii where she immersed herself in a melting pot of diverse cultural influences including India, the Middle East, Africa and Mexico. Her paintings reflect these powerful cultural influences. After returning to Utah she received a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Utah. Since that time she has shown her work in several one-woman exhibits and as an invited artist in shows and in galleries along the Wasatch Front.

Photography for New Exhibits

I've been pretty busy here in the studio shooting art for new exhibits.

Nathan Bennett is having an exhibit at The Meyer-Munson Gallery in Santa Fe, NM. The exhibit Nathan Bennett: Intimate Alchemy opens Friday, June 15th. There’s no one else doing what Nathan Bennett’s doing. Bennett is a master Patinuer who is creating a new path from an ancient craft. He
works much like the medieval alchemist—making beauty out of average metals. Take a look at his work and I'm sure you'll be impressed.

I've also been busy shooting for Frank McEntire for his exhibit at CUAC Central Utah Art Center. The exhibit
OPEN SECRETS: Undisclosed Works of
Kent Wing
Alex Bigney
Frank McEntire
Opens on Friday also. An artist's reception is from 6-8pm.

Frank always produces work that makes you stop and think.

These are just two of the many artist I shoot for. It just happens that they are having exhibits at the same time.

Clarke Graduated!

He made it! He really did. Yesterday the 24th of May Clarke graduated with the rest of his class of 2007 from Timpview High School. And here is a picture to prove it. WAY TO GO CLARKE!

It's now onward and upward. Maybe now the lights at home will be off at a reasonable hour since the late night study sessions are a thing of the past. There were 4 students from Clarkes kindergarten class to his THS graduation class of 2007.

Hawkinson Photography & Terra Nova Gallery will both be closed for Memorial Day this weekend. Have a wonderful holiday. We'll open again on Tuesday morning.

THS Ballroom & Gallery Stroll

This Friday & Saturday the 4th & 5th of May is the Timpview High School Ballroom Dance Concert. Clarke, who many of you know, is a senior at THS and will be performing on stage for his last time there. He is excited and also a bit sad. Clarke will have a solo routine with his partner during the senior showcase part of the concert. Good luck Clarke!

For your information, tickets are $5.00 each or $3.00 with a student ID and are available at the door. The show begins at 7:30 PM. I’ll be going on Saturday night because Friday is the Gallery Stroll.

The Downtown Provo Gallery Stroll is from 6-9 PM this Friday, May 4th. Our exhibit Trees by Barbara A. Lyman will be continuing. Barbara is planning on being here to meet with gallery patrons. Don’t miss this opportunity to visit with Barbara and view some wonderful art here at Terra Nova Gallery.

Spring is back

The weather here in Provo is changing multiple times a day, it must be Spring! However, it appears like Spring is here at the gallery. Just as the trees in front of the gallery are in bloom, our exhibit by Barbara A. Lyman titled Trees in the gallery are also wonderful! Color, texture and movement are all here.

I went on a location shoot the other day for a client to the UVSC Woodbury Gallery. The show is their BFA 2007 student exhibit. The exhibit is up until the 27th and is worth going to see.

New Blog

I've always wanted to keep everyone updated with what's new here in the studio. And I even have a section on the site for that. However, the ease of updating often kept me from doing so.

For this reason (and everyone NEEDS needs to have a blog) I'm starting the new studio blog. Hopefully you will find this informative, fun, educational or maybe interesting.

I've uploaded new images for two artists. Dave Bown and James Gunter each have new work on their pages.

Return again and see what's new.
