Use Your Imagination
Everyone is continuing to show their creativity
July 3, 2020 – Ogden, UT – Ogden City Arts will continue to go virtual for July’s First Friday Art Stroll. We have seen a variety of art pieces, projects and musical performances that have been shared on social media. With Covid-19 on the rise we want to make everyone’s safety is a priority so we will continue to go virtual. Our plan is to post art from people who use the hashtag #OgdenSharesArt. We have made a multitude of short videos with hundreds of photos shared since April.
Ogden City Arts will give updates on other virtual live events happening that day. The Local Artisan Collective will go live from 6-8 p.m. on Facebook and feature artists and projects that will be made. The Eccles Art Center will have a virtual tour of their art on their website www.ogden4arts.org and on social media. You too can be featured in our art stroll. Share a photo of yourself making art. During this time of social distancing and change, art is always an outlet to express how you are feeling. Show us some projects that you have done while staying home, a card you made for Father’s Day or a sign for a recent graduate. We cannot wait to see what you have been up to lately.
Although the First Friday Art Stroll is virtual for July, 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.
#OgdenSharesArt to have your art featured on our page. Your images and video clips will be shared on Friday, July 3 on our social media outlets.

Charity, a welder by trade adds contrasting metal hardware and custom metal frames to the art giving it a stunning industrial modern finish. Cally, a painter breathes additional life into the fractile patterns by painting a plethora of landscapes and other unique creations on the wood. The two also love to add brightly colored resins to add depth and movement to these one of a kind pieces.

- WBs Eatery - Carper Contemporary features Salt Lake City artist Miriam Tribe at WBs Eatery with a collection of abstract figurative drawings and paintings that reflect on togetherness during times of pandemic. Artist Statement: "Every work I create begins with a line. Weighted and intuitive—like the downbeat of a rhythm—either on its own like a one-handed melody, or as a foundation for layers of shapes and color. I reach for charcoals or oil pastels, always seeking a soft texture with weight and suspension. I reduce. I omit. I suggest, the viewer surmises. When I discover an interesting face I will often retrace my path again and again until my grip loosens and my lines become fluid and graceful like choreography. If I’m painting then I use deep, earthy shades of acrylics or oils and often layers of both. There’s a certain amount of neatness in my work, but also a deliberate disregard for perfection. My work is figurative and expressionistic. I draw people with an inclination towards the subtleties of expression. If line is choreography, then paint is costume—graphic, rich and patterned. Not unlike ritual or war paint, it defines the primal inner state, the true intention." https://www.carpercontemporary.com/miriam-tribe
- (WBSEATERY) You can also follow them on social media to order curbside food to-go.
- Art Box - The Art Box will be open during the art stroll. Their featured artist is Ian Shaw had always desired to become an artisan and master a trade, but he struggled to find the correct medium for his creative expression. About four years ago, he began working with leather and instantly became obsessed. His intentions and expectations have changed dramatically with time, but his overall desire to learn as much as possible about this beautiful craft has not changed. Ian’s work is characterized by minimal, practical designs and a focus on nature/landscape themes. He works with only the highest quality, responsibly tanned leather from America and Italy. Every process, from the first cut to final polish, is done by hand with simple tools and traditional techniques. Ian currently sells a line of products in-person and online and offers custom work upon request. Stop in and see what new items they have in stock. Plus, follow their IG account for more information.
