10am to Noon
Print reviews are open to the public! Bring your prints (any size, framed or not) for a review led by a Gallery Member. If you've ever wondered what others think of your work but were too shy to ask or always received the dreaded "It's nice" response, this is your opportunity. We hope to see you there!
While masking is no longer required, all participants are encouraged to wear masks during the print review, for the safety of all participating.

Zion National City
Tanner Frost (USA)
This piece is a composite of two stock images of highly recognizable locations: New York City and Zion National Park. The resulting image suggests the cultural Western approach to interacting with Nature. New York City and Zion National Park are roughly 2300 miles apart. The image offers the idea that while we have "closed the gap" between Man and Nature with the creation of National Parks, no true change in our culture has been made. We have brought the city with us. We continue our methodical and unrelenting exploitation of the land for its many commodities - even if that commodity is to see something beautiful.
Tanner Frost is a photographer and high-speed videographer in the aerospace and defense industry for Northrop Grumman. He earned his BFA from Utah Valley University and has worked in commercial production as a camera assistant and as a freelance commercial and lifestyle photographer. He has exhibited fine art photographs in juried group exhibitions in Utah, Arizona, Oregon, and Minnesota.
