In addition to the exhibition Sense of Place that I have at the Alice Gallery, one of my pieces was accepted in the Utah Statewide Annual exhibition. Salt Gatherer celebrates the beautiful range of pink salt that can be found on the shores of Great Salt Lake. The buttons were created by my jewelry artist friend Mary Lambert out of salt and silver. We gathered the salt crystals together last April and Mary made the most beautiful buttons out of them. The opening for the Statewide Annual is this Friday evening at the Rio Gallery.
Mary also created some cocktail rings out of salt that she made to photograph with the mitts out at the lake. She entered those in the Statewide Annual and they were accepted too! They beautiful and fragile rings that complement my piece so well.
