March 2019 Paint Out:

Date:  Sat, March 9, 2019  10:00am-12:00pm
Location:  Gilgal Sculpture Garden  (749 E 500 S  Salt Lake City, UT 84102)

What is Gilgal you might ask? It’s a sculpture garden, hidden away in a discreet corner of a Salt Lake City residential block. The entrance is sandwiched between two houses.

Maybe you’ve heard of this place.  Maybe you haven’t.  Paint a sphinx with the face of Joseph Smith, founder of our state’s founding religion, along with keystone arches and other varied sculpture and beautifully planted gardens which may just be starting to come back from their winter’s rest.

The Friends of Gilgal has consented to allow us to hold a paint out in this unique corner of our valley. Please join us to paint at this hidden treasure.

When:   March 9, 2019  10:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M.
Where:  Gilgal Sculpture Garden   749 E 500 S, Salt Lake City, UT 84102

This is a rain or shine event, so keep an eye on the weather and dress accordingly.  We’ll get together to oooh, awe, and compare before heading to lunch.

Lunch afterward, or if you can’t attend the paint out, just join us for lunch at Porcupine Pub & Grille   258 1300 E, Salt Lake City, UT 84102  at 12:30 P.M.

Remember to bring your paintings, finished or not, great or not so great, to our next UWS meeting!
