On the Border of Realism - Artist Reception

The Utah Division of Arts & Museums presents On the Border of Realism September 14 through November 2, 2018, at the Alice Gallery. A Gallery Stroll artist reception will be held on October 19 from 6pm to 9pm. The Alice Gallery is located at the historic Glendinning Mansion at 617 East South Temple in Salt Lake City and is free and open to the public Tuesday through Friday 10am to 4pm. On the Border of Realism features the artwork of Jan Andrews and Trent Alvey. These artists are inspired by capturing the transitory moments of everyday life, the movement of light, and the impressions these illuminated scenes leave on the senses. Both use photography as their medium, but use different subject matter for inspiration. Alvey photographs water mixing with paint in a paint tray, while Andrews photographs flowers through hazy greenhouse windows. Visit Visualarts.utah.gov for more info.

Mothers with Mega Bog

Mothers began in 2013 as self-taught songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kristine Leschper’s solo project as she studied printmaking in Athens, Georgia. Leschper's earliest musical influences span a great swath of early aughts rock and folk including Interpol, Sufjan Stevens, Joanna Newsom, The Microphones, and Athens legends Neutral Milk Hotel; she later developed a love for experimental music, math rock, and noise artists as well. Over time, Leschper began collaborating with fellow Athenian Matthew Anderegg and a fully flushed out band soon fell into place. In 2016, Mothers released their debut album “When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired” to great critical acclaim. Named a Stereogum ‘Band To Watch’, Pitchfork’s review of the album compared Leschper to Angel Olsen and Sharon Van Etten while Noisey exclaimed that the record “is singer-songwriter prog rock for grown up emo kids.” Now based in Philadelphia, Mothers will spend 2018 working on their sophomore follow-up.

Mark J. Nelson Signs White Hat: The Military Career of Captain William Philo Clark

On October 19, Weller Book Works welcomes Mark J. Nelson for a signing of White Hat: The Military Career of Captain William Philo Clark as part of Utah Humanities Book Festival.

Best known for his role in the arrest and killing of Crazy Horse and for the book he wrote, The Indian Sign Language, Captain William Philo Clark (1845–1884) was one of the Old Army’s renaissance men, by turns administrator, fighter, diplomat, explorer, and ethnologist. As such, Clark found himself at center stage during some of the most momentous events of the post–Civil War West: from Brigadier General George Crook’s infamous “Starvation March” to the Battle of Slim Buttes and the Dull Knife Fight, then to the attack against the Bannocks at Index Peak and Sitting Bull’s final fight against the U.S. Army. Captain Clark’s life story, here chronicled in full for the first time, is at once an introduction to a remarkable figure in the annals of nineteenth-century U.S. history, and a window on the exploits of the U.S. Army on the contested western frontier. White Hat follows Clark from his upbringing in New York State to his life as a West Point cadet, through his varied army posts on the northern plains, and finally to his stint in Lieutenant General Philip Sheridan’s headquarters first in Chicago and later in Washington, D.C. Along the way, Mark J. Nelson sets the record straight on Clark’s controversial relationship with Crazy Horse during the Lakota leader’s time at Camp Robinson, Nebraska. His book also draws a detailed picture of Clark’s service at Fort Keogh, Montana Territory, including what is arguably his greatest success—the securing of Northern Cheyenne leader Little Wolf’s peaceful surrender. In telling Clark’s story, White Hat illuminates the history of the nineteenth-century American military and the Great Plains, including the Grand Duke Alexis’s buffalo hunt, the Great Sioux War, and the careers of Crook and Sheridan. Nelson's examination of Clark’s early years in the army offers a rare look at the experiences of a staff officer stationed on the frontier and expands our view of the army, as well as the United States’ westward march. 



The Rocky Horror Show

When a newly engaged couple, Brad and Janet, innocently set out to visit an old professor, a thunderstorm and a flat-tire lead them to seek help at the castle of the alien, transvestite scientist, Dr. Frank ‘N’ Furter. As Brad and Janet are swept up into Frank ‘N’ Furter’s latest experiment, the night’s misadventures will cause them to question everything they’ve known about themselves, each other and love. This humorous tribute to the classic B Sci-Fi films and horror genre, with an irresistible rock’n’roll score, is a wild ride that no audience will soon forget.
