World Expressions

August 17 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Date: July 25, 2018
Subject: Featured Artists at Local Colors
Local Colors of Utah Art Gallery proudly presents two local Utah Artists’ exhibit entitled “World Expressions”. This show features the intricate beaded and wire wrapped jewelry of Mary Pusey and the very unique and amazing nightscapes, nature and landscape photography of Shayne.
Mary Pusey was born in Murray, Utah, and grew up in the neighboring city of Midvale. Her joy in color and texture of different surfaces of beads and findings spills over into the making of her jewelry! What draws Mary to her painting also draws her to jewelry. She expresses her love of color and texture in jewelry. Using colors to create a mood and wire as the thread to sew beautiful paintings to be worn. More recently she has expanded her jewelry to creating patterns for beaded purses. There is no end in sight. Her creativity is an addiction!

Shayne Shaw first started shooting photography about 15 years ago when digital cameras first started getting popular. He soon realized that that he was starting to see the world in a different way. There is true beauty in everything and in every place on this amazing world. I He makes it a goal to try to get shots that didn’t look like everyone else’s shot. Some of the techniques he uses to try and get unique shots are shooting unusual angles and compositions, shooting at different times of day or night and experimenting with long exposure times, particularly Nightscapes, which have become a strong passion of his.
“World Expressions” opens August 17th with an evening reception and runs through September 17th.
