The Finch Lane Gallery presents two new art exhibitions: Trent Call & Clint Call’s Druthers & Droll and Alise Anderson’s unruly. These exhibitions will be open to the public from October 6 – November 17 at 54 Finch Lane, SLC. There will be an artist reception on Friday, October 6, 6-9pm. Members of the public are invited to attend.
Trent Call & Clint Call – Druthers & Droll
Trent Call’s paintings revolve around a cast of absurd characters that evolve from loosely drawn doodles. Clint Call reimagines the tools and objects of his years of woodworking, often incorporating motion in his whimsical sculptures. Together, their work explores common influences of Americana, early animation, and automatons.
Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Trent Call earned a BFA from the University of Utah. He is involved in a variety of ongoing projects including murals, oil paintings, illustrations, and sign painting. A Salt Lake City native, Clint Call graduated from the U of U with a BFA and an MFA from Montana State. He recently retired after 34 years of designing furniture and custom architectural pieces with his partner, Janet Call.
Alise Anderson – unruly
Reimagining religious historical dogma through a queer lens.
Alise Anderson’s work for unruly began while reading the The Hand Book for the Bee-Hive Girls of the Young Ladies Mutual Improvement Association of the Church of Latter Day Saints, written in 1915. Her exhibition examines place-specific oddities and introduces queerness into the language for Beehive belonging. Anderson’s work becomes slowly familiar and unfamiliar in a tangled re-negotiation, as if uncovering a more intimate history.
Alise currently lives and works in Salt Lake City. She received her BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute, where she primarily focused on sculpture, video, and painting.
The Finch Lane Gallery is a program of the Salt Lake City Arts Council.
