Apres Sundance 2017 from Gallery MAR

By Eileen Treasure, Fine Art Consultant

The Sundance Film Festival of 2017 has come and gone, and we at Gallery MAR want to take a moment to remember the good, the bad, and the ugly.

A little “Singin’ in the Snow” across the street at Park City Live. We have very few celebrity sightings to report,  but it was amazing to see mama moose and baby moose having a late night snack right next to City Hall. Where did they come from, and where did they go?

The highlight of the week? It snowed almost every day of the festival. Great for skiers, but a challenge for our guests who came to watch the films, and didn’t bring the right footwear. That was the ugly part — brown slush piled everywhere, which made walking to and fro a challenge and parking almost impossible!

 

Thousands filled Main Street Saturday morning for a peaceful display of free speech for Park City’s first ever “Women’s March.”

We chose to celebrate strong women with a new collection from San Francisco artist, Jylian Gustlin. The beautiful painting in the front window, “Aphrodite 3,” is now on its way to Connecticut, where it has found a home with a new art collector.

We also welcomed these new “Sundance-themed” paintings of Main Street from Salt Lake artist, Aaron Memmott:

“Sundance Days”   24″ x 24″  oil on canvas by Aaron Memmott

 

 

“Morning Light on Main”  24″ x 30″ oil on canvas by Aaron Memmott

.

 

And so we say “Au revoir” to Sundance, and we’ll see you next year.
