Art Will Get Us Through the Fall Virtual Art Stroll in Ogden Continues
September 25, 2020 - Month seven…and this pandemic is not stopping art from happening in Ogden. As we continue to social distance, we will keep sharing everyone’s art who uses the hashtag #OgdenSharesArt. Our main priority is to make sure everyone’s safety is a priority. So, during the Virtual First Friday Art Stroll we will still share short videos on Friday, October 2 from 6-9 p.m.
Ogden City Arts will post throughout the day about other virtual live events happening that day. The Local Artisan Collective will continue to go live from 6-9 p.m. on Facebook and feature artists and projects that will be made. They will have a special weeklong celebration as they have festivities for their birthday. You too can be featured in our art stroll. Share a photo of your art. During this time of social distancing and change, art is always an outlet to express how you are feeling.
Although the First Friday Art Stroll is virtual for October some of our community partners have opened and plan to host small events while practicing social distancing. We are happy that as restrictions are starting to lift people can start to experience art in person. Check out what some of our community partners are up to either virtually or at their locations (with restrictions) by referencing the list below.
Use #OgdenSharesArt to have your art featured on our page. Your images and video clips will be shared on Friday, October 2 on our social media outlets between 6-9 p.m.

Eccles Community Art Center - The Eccles Art Center will be opening new exhibits October. The paintings of Mac Stevenson of North Ogden and the Windfall Wood art of Joe Deru of Ogden will be on display in the Main Gallery; while in the Carriage House Gallery Melissa Flattery of Pleasant View art is featured. A reception for the artists is scheduled during the First Friday Stroll, October 2, 2020 from 5 to 8 p.m. Exhibits continue through October 31, 2020
Mac Stevenson is known for his landscapes with brilliantly, 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.
Joe Deru with his Windfall Wood art turns a variety of wooden vessel into three dimensional art forms with a satiny finish. His bowls and vases often incorporate the blemishes, cracks or holes of the wood along with its live edge to create unique works with a radiant beauty.
Melissa Flattery has titled her exhibit: “Wistfulness and Whimsy” She says that “Despite enjoying several diverse media in my studio, I am currently focused on creating contemporary abstract art. Each piece is unique. This exhibit primarily reflects my pure joy for finally having the time, resources, and freedom to create. I served in the US Air Force for more than 20 years from 1992-2012–a career primarily defined by rigid restraint. Upon retirement, I immediately began pursuing art on a full- time basis. I utilize vibrant colors and an organic style to create art that is truly accessible and perhaps diametrically opposed to my previous life. In giving life to my creations, it is sometimes challenging to send them out into the world, but I never expect you to see my art with my eyes. I eagerly invite you to interpret what you see from your own
unique perspective. If my art opens new doors or inspires in new or different ways, that makes me very happy. The art displayed in this exhibit reflects my unconstrained wistfulness and whimsy.”
We invite you to visit the Eccles Art Center and our galleries. Covid gallery hours are weekdays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is complimentary. For information, please contact the art center staff at 801-392-6935 or visit the art center’s website at www.ogden4arts.org.

OUR FEATURED ARTIST THIS MONTH:
Roxanne Vigos from Sago Adornment
I started my company Sago in 2008 with the intention of creating beautiful, unique jewelry for people who also felt a deep connection to storytelling, adornment and very individual pieces for everyday wear. Perhaps even people who longed to try on another way of seeing the world, feeling and being in the world. Much of my inspiration has come from my love of dance and global dance cultures and adornment around the world.
In 2014 I added a naturally dyed textile element to my company Sago. I had a call to explore nature on a deeper level, specifically understanding trees. I learned about a technique called eco-print where color and shape from leaves were transferred to cloth and paper. I immediately saw this as a map to communicate with nature in an artistic way and I had to learn more. I was able to study with several masters in the field over the next few years allowing me to explore and find my own way in the art while studying with some of the pioneers of the techniques that captivated me. I see each of the things I do as a way to connect people to both their own being and the world outside of our being.
Roxanne Vigos will also be Auctioning off 3 very special pieces. Stay tuned to learn more. The Auction will start on Friday at 6:00 and end on Sunday at 9:00 pm MST.

- Ogden Contemporary Arts - PLATFORMS, OCA’s outdoor art park located in the Nine Rails Creative District, is getting an aesthetic upgrade that will be revealed on October 2nd First Friday Art Stroll.Once a vacant lot, PLATFORMS was adopted by our non-profit in 2016 as a community-oriented and accessible art space. Now with our renewed vision as Ogden Contemporary Arts, we’ve collaborated with local partners to create a fresh and exciting adaptation for this space. In addition to a new landscape design by that includes native plants, paths, and seating, PLATFORMS is now home to an interactive, light-based art installation titled, . was designed and fabricated by Lauren and James Argo, co-founders of . The installation features eight, 4’ x 4’ polycarbonate cubes each programmed with their own pulsating light sequence, with touch and motion sensors that respond to interactivity. The boxes appear to emerge from the ground in various glowing colors with transparent finishes; each shape was made from reclaimed outdoor composite material that is weather and tamper resistant. The sculptures exist in a dimly lit resting state that begins to glow brighter as it senses an approaching visitor or passerby, beckoning them through the installation with sequential lighting effects. Unique surface designs on each cube are inspired by paradoxes both ancient and contemporary, stimulating thought and conversation in addition to playful interactivity. “Individually these sculptures represent elements of our local culture and highlight the beauty of simple geometric abstraction,” states the Argo’s. “Cumulatively they represent hierarchies in nature and the passing of time…Iconographic etchings and typography on these shapes bring the viewers’ attention to paradoxes present in our experiences as humans. The hard edges and vertices represent the knife’s edge between order and chaos… The goal is to artistically balance different points of view and illustrate that every good argument has truth, and nothing is cut and dry.” Industrial Art & Design creates unique solutions using state of the art technology and refined aesthetic sensibilities. Both graduates of the Savannah College of Art and Design, co-founders Lauren and James Argo play the part of designers, engineers, and artists when tackling projects that range from product innovation to custom lighting and furniture design. They are also the co-owners of the and active members of Ogden’s local art community. “We drive by PLATFORMS every single day and always wanted to do something there, but in a different format,” says Lauren Argo. “So we did our best to come up with something that was feasible and reasonable, but also really cool. We wanted to push the boundaries – and technology definitely affords you that opportunity.”
