Gallery MAR has a history of creative window displays, throughout the year. We truly enjoy the feedback that we get from our artists’ creative visions, come to life in the window. Several artists have worked with the gallery to create custom pieces, since 2008.

This year, we have a wonderful young woman from Salt Lake who is painstakingly making our displays by hand: Megan Rider of Salt Lake Supply & Design.

With her entrepreneurial spirit and do-it-yourself attitude, designer Megan Rider began Salt Lake Supply & Design as both a creative outlet and a means to combat the traditional 9 to 5.

The culmination of a degree in Fashion Merchandising & Product Development from New York City’s FIT and an extensive background in retail, design and visual display gave Megan ample inspiration for personal projects that led to interior and product design for friends and family, eventually leading into a career.

As some of her earliest memories are of wandering the aisles of Home Depot with her parents who remodeled and resold houses in Salt Lake City, Megan is no stranger to getting down and dirty with a chop saw, concrete, metal work or any number of materials. Each commissioned project is new and unique and lends itself to a whole new adventure and set of tools and equipment (which Megan feverishly collects). Whether you have a concept you would like to see come to fruition, or would like us to design and produce something completely unique, Salt Lake Supply & Design can make it a reality.

We are working to create the vision for our winter display right now. Watch our front window come late November for Megan’s latest display. I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but you can expect a shining display. We can’t wait to see it come to fruition.
