Artist Reception / Richard Gate

Granary Arts invites you to join us for the artist reception of the solo exhibition, “Anthology”, a retrospective of work created by Richard Gate between 1985 and 2019. Born in the lake country of northwestern Ontario and raised in the red rock country of southern Utah, Gate has spent a lifetime drawing migratory paths across the northern continent. Working seasonally in Sanpete, Utah from his rural studio, and traveling to remote areas of Canada to fish and Los Angeles to connect with the art scene – these repeated pilgrimages are evident in the evolution of his creative process.

Makerspace and Time / Marnie Powers-Torrey

Thursday February 21, 2019 / 12pm-3pm & Saturday February 23 / 5pm-8pm

Granary Arts Creative in Residence, Marnie Powers-Torrey, invites you to participate in a collaborative multimedia assemblage artwork, Makerspace and Time, in the CCA Christensen Cabin. Please bring your small, everyday objects to incorporate into the work. The art will become a visual narrative, emblematic of those who assembled it and the place from where they came. Objects with an interesting texture or silhouette with a flat surface can be documented with a monoprint. Other small pieces might be sewn or placed in pockets. Please only bring items that you are willing to commit to the project permanently. Most importantly, remember that any object bears a significance, particularly if you find it interesting. Roadside detritus, attic and basement leavings, remanence of daily doings, and otherwise random but somehow beautiful and engaging items will all become part of the vocabulary we use to tell a story of time and place.

The collaborative artwork will be on exhibition in the CCA Christensen Cabin alongside the work of Marnie Powers-Torrey through March 8, 2019. This project is co-sponsored by the Book Arts Program as part of the J. Willard Marriot Library at the University of Utah.

Granary Arts Creative in Residence, and professional biographer, Rhonda Lauritzen, invites you to participate in a workshop, Telling Your Life Story: Oral History, Audio and Transcribing Techniques. This workshop will offer practical insights into telling your story and will feature the most timeless and intimate format - voice. Lauritzen will show why audio is so powerful, and how oral history may be the most practical way to record one’s life story. She will be sharing her favorite questions gleaned from years of professional interviewing and will address potential issues with technology and discuss how they can be avoided. Lauritzen’s ideas and approach on the collection and preservation of oral history is highly regarded by many family history writers and has been credited as a breakthrough in their own storytelling processes. Lauritzen is currently working on the nomination to include the historic Relief Society Granary, home to Granary Arts, in the National Registry of Historic Places.

1 Image 1 Minute / Micol Hebron

Granary Arts Creative in Residence, Micol Hebron, invites you to participate in a project titled 1 IMAGE 1 MINUTE. The project will bring together people from the Sanpete Valley and Utah community in a unique and collaborative live event. For this event we are inviting 60 community members to select and discuss – for exactly and only 1 minute – a photographic image that is significant to them in some way.  It can be a personal image, a historical image, a viral image from the internet – anything! – as long as it is a photographic image. You will give a one minute presentation about why you find this image compelling. Your presentation can take whatever form you like – prose, spoken word, poem, performance. We hope you will join us!

Deadline for Participation: Thursday, January 10

Feminist Friday / Micol Hebron

Granary Arts Creative in Residence, Micol Hebron, invites you to participate in Feminist Friday, a public community event designed to provide a platform for discussion of contemporary feminist issues. Feminist Friday encourages a pervasive and ongoing dialogue. The purpose is twofold: to de-stigmatize Feminism as something that is too academic, theoretical, inaccessible, classist, racist, angry, outdated or unnecessary; and to build networks of people and resources for encouraging feminist discourse and ideologies.
