There will be an artist reception on Friday, Oct. 7, 6-9pm. Members of the public are invited to attend. Finch Lane Gallery is open Tuesdays, 9:30am-8:30pm, and Wednesdays and Thursdays, 9:30am-5pm.

Elisa Gomez – Vibrant Environments

Elisa Gomez’s Vibrant Environments transposes the aesthetic of both European and American Abstract Expressionism with a playful attention to color, texture, and surface. Her canvases surprise and delight the viewer in their transposition of elements across genres and movements.

Gomez received her BFA with an emphasis in painting from the University of Utah in 2010 and her master’s degree from Denver University in 2020. She is currently represented by Uprise Art in New York, and Loft Gallery in Atlanta. Gomez currently resides in Salt Lake City, UT.

Emily Tipps – Bookland

Emily Tipps’ Bookland challenges assumptions about reading by exploring the pleasures of making, touching, and reading physical books. Visitors are encouraged to handle the work (thumb the pages, sniff the ink, listen to the rustle of paper), to contribute to the reuse of old and the production of new materials, and to celebrate reading as a shared experience.

Emily Tipps is Associate Librarian and Program Manager at the Book Arts Program at the University of Utah. She also operates High5 Press, which publishes innovative writing in limited edition artist’s books. She has an MA in Creative Writing from the University of Colorado and an MFA in Book Arts from the University of Alabama.
The Finch Lane Gallery is a program of the Salt Lake City Arts Council.
