Last Friday’s, Neighborhood House hosted Urban Gallery VI as part of Salt Lake’s Gallery Stroll. What a blast!
The theme this year was Drawn Together. Eight different children from Neighborhood House, Discovery Gateway, and Bad Dog Arts sketched line drawings, featuring everything from cats and turtles, to dancers and readers. The selected drawings were then magnified and projected onto the garage doors here at Neighborhood House and interpreted by eight different local artists. The results were stunning.
Our audience was comprised of the artists themselves (both children and adults), as well as their families and friends, plus a healthy handful of interested art lovers. Everyone enjoyed music and refreshments courtesy of Tony Caputo’s, and at the end of the night, votes for Audience Favorite were tallied. Congratulations to Mackenzie Donovan!
We’d like to take a second to thank ALL of our talented artists. We wish we could have voted for all of you!
