Navajo Artist’s Works on Display through Dec. 14

Artist Gilmore Scott

The George S. & Dolores Doré Eccles Art Gallery was recently host to a gallery reception for Navajo artist Gilmore Scott’s “Sky Dazzlers” exhibition. Scott’s “strong, bold and simple” paintings are interpretations of how he views his Dine (Navajo) heritage. His paintings feature high southwest desert landscapes, traditional baskets and traditional homes. He also incorporates geometric designs for which Dine rug weavers are known. Scott’s works will be on display through Dec. 14 at the Eccles Gallery, located in Salt Lake Community College’s Center for Arts and Media at South City Campus, 1575 S. State Street, Salt Lake City.

In conjunction with Scott’s exhibition on Nov. 29, at 3 p.m. in the Center for Arts and Media’s Screening Room, Anthony Guzman, former Executive Director of the Urban Indian Center, will speak about Native representation in art and public spaces. This event, part of SLCC’s Gallery Programs, is free and open to the public.
