Photography from Salt Lake City Group

Z-Arts presents, Threshold: Salt Lake Seven, part of Utah Arts & Museums’ Traveling Exhibition Program. Opening April 1st at the Canyon Community Center, the exhibit features different styles of photography from various photographers who gather regularly to critique each other’s work.

There is no end to photographic possibilities. But in the quest for meaningful images there is a point for each photograph that marks the decision to release the shutter. On one side of that point, there is no image, only imagined possibilities. On the other side is the consequence of our choice — the final truth. This moment might be called the Threshold.

The Salt Lake Seven – or Six or Eight as occasion allows – is a small group of committed practitioners who gather regularly to share ideas and honest criticism. The group was instigated by renowned photographer Kent Miles who had no idea one decade later they would still be meeting and hosting exhibits as a group. “Together, each of us has accomplished something that would have remained outside our grasp had we not been part of SL7” says Miles, “ I hope you enjoy your encounter with our efforts.”

Teresa Jordan and Her Year of Living Virtuously (or not)

Teresa Jordan and Her Year of Living Virtuously (or not)

YOLV front cover 1600On February 20, 2015, author and visual artist Teresa Jordan will read from her new book at the Springdale Canyon Community Center at 7pm. Admission is Free.

Inspired by Benjamin Franklin’s “arduous project of arriving at moral perfection,” Teresa Jordan spent a year exploring the ways in which virtue and vice play out in everyday life, an extended meditation that resulted in her just-released book, The Year of Living Virtuously (Weekends Off). In this talk, she will share some of what she learned, weaving stories from her own rural upbringing with those of characters as diverse as Benjamin Franklin and Shakespears’s King Lear, and drawing as well on insights from theologians, scholars, philosophers, and scientists within the emerging field of consciousness studies.

TeresaJordanTeresa Jordan grew up in a house full of books on an isolated ranch in Wyoming where the love of learning she acquired in the local one-room school carried her to Yale and into a lifetime of inquiry. Her work includes the memoir Riding the White Horse Home and Cowgirls: Women of the American West, one of the earliest books to give voice to contemporary women working on the land. With her husband, folklorist and musician Hal Cannon, she created “The Open Road,” a series of radio features for Public Radio International’s The Savvy Traveler. Her newest book is The Year of Living Virtuously (Weekends Off), a series of meditations inspired by Benjamin Franklin’s list of thirteen virtues and the seven deadly sins. She is also a visual artist, and her work is featured on the cover of the book and as illustrations throughout.
