Inside Utah artist, Candace McLane’s Studio

  • Living Like Fish

    How are you? I mean really how are you?  It’s a very strange time.  Some of us believe there is a virus, others think it‘s a conspiracy... Some believe masks must be mandated, others believe their freedom is being trampled if asked to don one. Regardless of what you believe, I think we can all agree its a strange time, steeped in not knowing, steeped in separateness and disconnection.  Though we are standing beside each other, we surround ourselves with likeminded people on social media, we often unfriend people with whom we disagree.  We are truly living in bubbles - both physically and ideologically.

  • 300 Plates Fundraiser: My Work's Included!

    ART Access maybe closing their gallery, but the work goes on.  They will continue to support under-represented artists, handicapped, and disadvantaged artists.  The 300 Plates fundraiser is still happening! I am lucky to be counted among the 185 Utah artists to be included in this fundraiser. While there won't be the giddy anticipation of waiting for our wristband to be randomly selected, here's what you need to know to add to (or start) your collection of these 10"x11" treasures.

    Pricing will still be done in our traditional way, with plate prices starting at $85 and increasing in $1 increments. There will also be a Silent Auction with the option to receive notices about plates you are bidding on.
