New Art Exhibit in Downtown Salt Lake City, Utah, USA recalls the Valley of Roses

Date: 11.09.2007

Contemporary Design & Art Gallery, 127 Main Street, Downtown, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. Art Director: Michael Melik. Tel.: (801) 364 000. Website of the International Institute of Anthropology about the new art exhibit at

10 artists 10 styles. 10 Utah artists, Sept 6th - Oct 5th, 2007.

The Gallery was opened and welcomed visitors and special guests till late in the night on Sept 6th. As the photos show at, the title of the Exhibit 10 artists 10 styles completely covers the contents of the exhibit.

During the reception I was pleased to meet for the first time the charming young talent artists Michele Condrat and Peter Nielsen (both at age 24) who graduated this year from the University of Utah, Salt Lake City.

Michele had a solo show last month and I went several times to the Gallery to have seen her "born from the sun forests" that reminded me the impressionism but had something individual and unique that made them just the Michele's style. Her pictures expire sunny feelings of a really stylish artist with deep understanding of the aesthetics. Fragile and sensitive, Michele talks about her art as dedicated to the beauty young woman who not only know to do a good job, but feels the art as her destiny.

Peter Nielson is a great surprise. His picture A Red Rose is the one that everyone first mentions in the gallery.  You just immediately want to know this guy. Charming, intelligent and smart, Peter would surprise you that he has not only graduated from UVSL, but began to study psychology at BYU. At the UofU his major was graphic  illustration since the courses included in the Program provided stronger education on the different technique of painting according to the artist. The wooden frame was also done by Peter. Hopefully his new University will support our invitation Peter to come
next July in the Valley of the roses and especially in one of the few places where oil rose grows - Karlovo, Bulgaria,  to show his art. According to preliminary plans, a folk group from Salt Lake will visit Karlovo for the 171st birth Anniversary of Vaasil Levski (18 July 2008).

One of the pieces of art in the exhibit belongs to the Bulgarian artist Denitsa Moneva (The cat) and reminds about the past also excellent exhibits in the Contemporary Design & Art Gallery.

As in the previous exhibits, the new art show in Salt Lake Downtown represents pieces of admirable Salt Lake contemporary art.
