Zions Bank Artists' Reception

Thursday the 6th of November I was able to attend the 11th Annual Zions Bank Artists' Reception in SLC. Six of my clients were there out of the 57 exhibits artists exhibiting.

Michael & Morgan Coleman each had some of their paintings on exhibit. Michael also had a bronze there. Morgan (pictured here) and Char (who took the pic) were representing the Coleman clan.

Marilyn Sunderland was there for the first time with her gourds. It is just amazing the work she does. You can see her work on her website:

Bryan Mark Taylor was the artist who introduced us to the Zion Bank exhibit years ago. Bryan is now in CA and has wonderful plein-air paintings and his work gets better all the time. You can follow him on his blog or view paintings on his website at: Great to see you again Bryan!

Ken Packer rounds out my clients that were on the 18th floor. Ken had his bronze work there and as you can see interested patrons talking with him. Ken's website is: Hope you stop by his site and enjoy his work.

Last but in no way the least was Ben Hammond. Ben does wonderful work with the human figure and then casts in bronze. You can view more of Ben's work on his site at:

On each of the floors along with the artists were food by many different providers and live music. I need to stick in a plug for MINI'S handcrafted gourmet miniature cupcakes! WOW is all I could say. Les Madeleines also had some wonderful desserts. There were also other caterers there but you can see by my impressions I spent most of my time with the desserts!

Music was also a big part of the evening. Ridin' the Fault Line, Kirkmount & Murdock Jazz Ensemble were all favorites of mine.

What could you ask for more? Good art, food, friends & music all in one place! One great evening.
