Milky Way Center Region Mosaic

OK, so I learned of this Galactic Center Mosaic site the other day and it has some wonderful images. When I'm outside at night I sure don't see all these stars but they are there. Take a look and use the zoom & pan tools at the bottom. I'm not sure how you will feel after viewing the images but as for me, well I seem pretty small.


Paintball Pop Art

OK, so I found this link on the Make web site. It is amazing what these guys do with paintballs! We've had our fun here in the gallery with Cristall Harper painting but it was nothing like this.

Hope you enjoyed watching this fun "painting" session! See you in the gallery soon.

ps, Plein Air Provo opens on October 2nd.

Cristall Harper In-Gallery Painting V3

One last time Cristall was here in the gallery painting during her exhibit. On each of the three weeks she has created a wonderful painting. Each one was different and exciting. And this week was no exception. As you can see in the image she went from mixing paint, to sharing with gallery visitors, to finished painting.

Almost complete

If for some chance you have not yet seen her exhibit come on down! Tulips closes on the 25th of September.

See you in the gallery soon.

Cristall Harper In-Gallery Painting V2

Cristall is back again today painting more tulips in the gallery. Lee from Mediaworks Inc. is shooting a time-lapse of her painting for us. Thanks Lee. You can see him setting up his camera and Cristall starting the painting.

Our exhibit of Tulips by Cristall is running until the 25th of September. You'll have to check back later to see the completed video. As soon as it is ready we'll post a link.

Cristall Harper In-Gallery Painting

We had a great time on the 9th with Cristall here in the gallery painting. As you can see she brought a prepared surface and then started painting.

As she painted various patrons stopped by and watched the process. I myself always enjoy watching the painting come together. As a photographer (and a husband who is not even allowed to paint the walls with a large roller!) painters and sculptors to me work magic!

Enjoy these images. Cristall may be posting more on her blog so give that a check.

She will be back again on the 16th from 3 - 6 pm and on the 23rd also. Mark your calendars and stop in, watch her paint and enjoy the exhibit.
