ART CANVASS

The Loge Gallery is spotlighting artwork by the Sorenson brothers during the run of Pioneer Memorial Theatre's current production "A Day In Hollywood/A Night In The Ukraine." Holden's two-dimensional art dots the walls, while Bob's three-dimensional furniture graces the hallways.

Holden, a Payson resident, uses Prismacolor pencils to create his abstract designs that are filled with circular shapes and colors. He credits the Southeastern Utah's high desert and red rock country for his inspiration.Bob specializes in custom furniture design as well as fine antique furniture restoration. He's fascinated with surface texture, but he's careful not to hide textures created by time, sunlight, use and neglect. Those are the textures that give each piece its personality.

The exhibit remains at PMT through Oct. 3. It can be viewed Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon. Theatergoers, of course, can also enjoy the exhibit. PMT is located at 1340 E. Broadway (300 South), University of Utah.

- Winston Gamble is not one of the featured artists at Utah Designer Crafts Gallery this month, but several glass cases there show off his superb jewelry.

Five years ago, Gamble decided to pursue jewelry-making full-time. The self-taught artist has developed distinctive styles and impeccable craftsmanship.

Anyone familiar with his work is well aware of the pictographs and petroglyphs that decorate the surfaces of his creations. Gamble admits he has been influenced by the myths, legends and sybolism of ancient and primitive cultures. He has named these pieces his "Canyon Country Rock Art."

"This line is my bread and butter," Gamble says. "It allows me time to play with my new style."

And what is that? Gamble describes it as "more architectural, linear and colorful." He uses more stones - and more gold. And he adds variety by using a number of techniques - fabrication, lost-wax casting, etching, forming and forging.

Not only does Gamble exhibit at UDC Gallery. His jewelry is being sold in the "Utah" shop at the Delta Terminal, Salt Lake International Airport; two galleries in Park City; one in Moab; and another in Sedona, Arizona.
