The Finch Lane Gallery presents two art exhibitions by artist team, Annelise Duque & Gwen Davis-Barrios, and individual artist, Doug Wildfoerster. Both exhibits feature imagery of fabricated dreams and fictionalized versions of life. Inspiration comes from the artists’ past experiences, encounters, and ancestors. These exhibitions will be on view from August 13 through September 24, 2021 at 54 Finch Lane, Salt Lake City, UT. Gallery hours are 9:30am-8:30pm Tuesdays, 9:30am-5pm Wednesdays & Thursdays. There will be an artist reception on Friday August 20, 6-9pm, open to the public with no RSVP required.
CASSANDRA NEVER REALLY DID COME BACK FROM MEXICO—Or, Painting the Stanislavski Way
Wildfoerster’s watercolor paintings are theatrical in nature. His paintings constitute a notebook of ideas—characters, settings, moods, impulses—for an improvised play. Each painting appears like a collage of past encounters meshed into a vibrant dream.
Now retired, Wildfoerster formerly worked as a graphic designer for KUED-TV. He majored in theater and art at the University of Utah. These past interests convene in his current watercolor paintings.
