In the Art Lounge: Artist Talks with Neary and Flint

January 21st, 2020

Utah-born Warren Neary will come back for a visit home to present "A Brush with Art and a Military Legacy." The first guests to register will also receive a limited edition signed lithograph print of one of Neary's classic, snowy Park City scenes in a custom tote bag. Says Neary, “I’ve always felt a little out of place as an artist type in the military, and as the oldest of nine, my dad said I was the last one he’d expected to join the US Air Force. However, I felt it was a calling for me to serve in addition to pursuing my artwork.”

Matt Flint Reveals Wildlife Character in the Gloaming

Matt Flint Reveals Wildlife Character in the Gloaming

It’s sometimes said the greatest quality an actor can have in movies is an unusual blankness of eye-expression. That almost erased quality, it’s said, makes the viewer eager to fill in that blankness with his or her own imaginings, the actor an avatar for you to transfer your feelings to. In “Somewhere in the Sky,” one large serenely wind-gliding owl is portraitized by Flint: the gray flat milky simple blankness of its round lusterless eye-orbs invite you somehow to imagine what this owl might be thinking of as it peers at you. Again, the feeling of a character, the lure of story.
