Gallery MAR artist Jan Perkins stopped by last weekend for a painting demonstration in the gallery. The photos above, taken over a two-day time period, show the progression of Perkins’ Main Street scene. I’m very excited to see how the painting is completed. Perkins is known for her local Utah scenes, and paints with a lush, painterly palette. Watch for this piece in the upcoming “Local Fireworks” First Anniversary show on Friday, July 3rd from 6 to 9 p.m.

Congratulations go out to Perkins, who was recently chosen by the Summit County Arts Council as their mural artist for the Summit County Fair Centennial Mural Design: “Celebrating One Hundred Years”.
