Last weekend, Gallery MAR hosted a third immersive art experience with Western art painter Matt Flint, whose exhibit, “Braided Path,” opened on Friday.

“Matt is from Wyoming and he is one of our most popular artists,” Mullin said. “He can’t make enough art to really satisfy our collector base.”

Flint is also an outdoor adventurer, Mullin said.

“He likes to mountain bike, and he’s a climber,” she said. “He’s also a cross-country and skier. So we thought it would be appropriate to set up a snowshoe experience with his collectors.”

While the next experience is in the planning stages, Mullin said there is a “selfish” side to these events.

“I also get to have these wonderful experiences with our artists, who have become my friends over the years,” she said. “So, I’m just planning fun events for my friends.”

The group embarked on a snowshoe tour that overlooked Park City’s Main Street and re-converged at Gallery MAR for a gin tasting with Beehive Gin.
