First Friday Art Stroll Showings - October 6th, 2017


This October we have two new additions to the First Friday line up!

Art Box

, a brand new art and gift shop located at 215 Historic 25th Street is joining the Stroll. Art Box is a thoughtful gift shop and interactive studio designed to inspire and ignite the creative gifts held within each one of us.  In addition to a variety of art classes that will be offered in different mediums throughout the year, we invite you to drop in anytime to make your own one-of-a-kind candle.  Experience the unfolding of your imagination as you select your candle shape, colors, fragrance and embellishments.  Then enjoy the creative process while you build a candle that speaks to you!

True North

has also joined the stroll. True North is delighted to showcase artist Daneil Gunderson and her extraordinary works in jewelry design! Daneil has called Ogden her home for 30 years and loves it here. Her passion for art began as a child, as she knew even then, art would always be a part of her life. She is a full-time artist who also enjoys painting, toll painting, altered art, steampunk and loom beading. Natural stones are the inspiration for her jewelry – their color, depth, and uniqueness motivate her designs.

True North will be serving refreshments in the Foyer at 175 25th Street, where Daneil will be showing her beautiful designs.

The Eccles Community Art—

The Eccles Community Art Center will be opening two new exhibits and rededicating the center’s performing arts building in October.  The paintings of Mac Stevenson of North Ogden will be on display in the Main Gallery; while in the Carriage House Gallery the art of members of the Tom Plummer Gallery will be featured.  A reception for the artists is scheduled during the First Friday Stroll, October 6 from 5 to 8 p.m.  The rededication of the Dean & Carol Hurst Performing Arts Building will happen on this same Friday, October 6th beginning at 5 p.m.

Mac Stevenson is known for his landscapes with magnificent colored skies and clouds, and they will be included in this exhibit.    Stevenson exhibits locally in Gallery 25 on Ogden’s historic 25th street.  His work is represented nationally in galleries in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and New Buffalo, Michigan.

This year as well as others, Stevenson participates in the Scottsdale, Arizona season long (January through March) exhibit and sale with other outstanding artists from across the US and Canada.  Each artist has a studio space to display their artwork and create new works.  Some works included in this exhibit were painted in Scottsdale.  They have a more contemporary flavor as Stevenson has used simplified shapes and intense color along with sound design.

Tom Plummer is a Salt Lake City artist.  He is the curator of an exhibit with his fellow artists: Sherman Bloom, Amelia Ence, Linda Hoffman Kimball, Marian Dunn, Michelle Emery, Irene Rampton, Rosemary Baron, Leonard Romney, Leslie Olpin Petersen and Bessann Swanson.  This exhibit will contain an assortment of themes and media, well worth a peek.

The rededication of the Performing Art Building to the Dean & Carol Hurst Performing Arts Building will be presented as a thank you to all who provided funds to the ECAC capital campaign for the renovation of this building.  The dance studios have been renamed after donors Arlene B  & Paul W Muller, and Judith B & Leon Jones.  One of the building walls features the names of the donors who assisted with funds to complete this project. 

Students and teachers will be present to demonstrate a couple of the unique classes offered in the building.  It is used not only for dance and drumming classes, but its studios have become the home of the center’s Tai Chi and Yoga classes.  Virginia Tanner Creative Dance, University of Utah uses the Performing Arts Building as a satellite studio for their children’s dance theatre classes.  Join the ECAC staff for a tour of the space.

The exhibits of Mac Stevenson and the Tom Plummer Gallery will remain on display through October 28, 2017.

“Complex and beautiful... revelatory”

Giles Sutherland, The Times

 Ecstatic Solitudes brings into dialogue, for the first time in an American gallery space, two celebrated films by British-Spanish artist Isabel Rocamora. Seen in museums and filmothèques worldwide, her large-scale video installations consider the performative language of human gesture and its relationship to individual and cultural identity. The works in this exhibition offer breathtaking imagery that poignantly examines issues of exile, authority and the intimacy of violence.

 Set in the historically charged landscape of the Normandy beaches, Body of War (2010) reflects on the transformation of man into soldier. In a rigorous mise-en-scène punctuated by testimonies of retired and serving soldiers, the film deconstructs the visceral act of hand-to-hand combat, affectively immersing the viewer in the relationship between human intimacy and the brutality of war.

 Across two enveloping projections, Horizon of exile (2007) stages female identity at the centre of a profound meditation on the underlying cultural causes of displacement. Immersed in vast desert planes and guided by testimonies from the Middle East and Latin America, the diptych reflects on the condition of women within authoritative societies, employing testimonies and choreographed bodies to consider issues of self-image, belonging and effacement.

Isabel Rocamora (b. 1968) is a British-Spanish artist filmmaker. Her practice originated in performance with live works commissioned by institutions such as the Arts Council of England and the Victoria and Albert Museum (1993 – 2003). Awarded internationally, her films have been exhibited at CCC, Palazzo Strozzi, Florence; the National Museum of Photography, Copenhagen; the Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art, Israel; the Austrian Cultural Forum, New York; and the Bologna Museum of Modern Art, among other venues. Recent solo shows include Galeria Senda in Barcelona, and the Koffler Gallery, Toronto. She lives and works in Edinburgh where she teaches film at Edinburgh University. She is represented by Galeria Senda.

Mike is an Ogden, Utah base lampworker, who specializes in unique pendants, jewelry, marbles and more. He began working with glass in January of 1994. Since that time he has passionately studied and practiced the art, always striving to perfect his techniques and learn something new. In addition to lampworking, Mike has experience with glass fusing, glass etching and neon sign making.

Mike’s work is inspired by nature’s beauty, pop culture, the strange and macabre. Halloween is his favorite holiday, which is noticeable in his work. Hurst’s evil eye jewelry has become some of his most popular items and his signature pieces.
