Pietra & David Wall : Exceptional Utah Artists

Standard

Howard Alan Events is proud to have Pietra & David Wall exhibit in the 2nd Annual Redstone Art Fair this weekend (July 30th & 31st) in Park City, Utah. 

Pietra was born and raised in Italy where she naturally developed a love of art.  Since she was a young girl the American West has fascinated her. Her dream to live in the West came true in 1982 when she married David and made Utah her home. David is a native of Utah and grew up camping, hiking and enjoying the outdoors. Their different backgrounds and cultures have played an important role in the development of their artwork. They compliment each other and play off of each other’s strength. Pietra is more “right-brained” and abstract; David is more “left-brained” and concrete. Together their talents combine to create art that is both unique and aesthetic. Their art reflects how well they work together. Pietra likes to say, “The best part of our work is that not only do we enjoy doing it, but we love doing it together.”

During years of experimenting with leather and its many properties, they have developed techniques that have given their work a very distinctive look. By using these skills together with traditional techniques they combine leather with other natural elements such as stone, copper, shells and wood to create earthy contemporary pieces.

Here are some beautiful examples of their work:

More Participating Artists in Redstone Art Fair

Standard

As you may know, this weekend is the Redstone Art Fair in Park City, UT. (August 14th & 15th). Earlier, I shared with you some of the local artists who have been interviewed all week long about their artwork and their expected attendance at the Redstone Art Fair. Now, I would like to share with you four additional artists who will be at the art festival this weekend. Our first artist is…

John Gibb - Pencil

John Gibb! John is an award-winning pencil artist from England. He travels all over the United States to different art festivals and has won “best in show” numerous times. We are very excited to have this artist join us this weekend in Park City! If you would like to see John’s gallery and learn more about him, you can visit his website HERE.

Judy & David Hedblom - Copper

Judy and David Hedblom are very talented artists who will also be accompanying us at Redstone this weekend. This particular piece in the picture above is made entirely out of copper. After reading more about this artistic couple, I found out they create these colorations from “heat & buffing techniques, which create deep, flowing designs often described as holographic and 3 dimensional”. You can see that their heart and soul goes into making each piece of artwork! If you would like to see more of Judy and David’s masterpieces, you can take a look at their website HERE.

Logan Louis - Jewelry

Logan Louis is from Greenville, North Carolina, so he is traveling a long way to Utah! Logan creates fascinating jewelry. He describes what he makes as “pierced silver hollow forms with semi-precious stones which are made using traditional fabrication techniques”. If you look in the picture above, you can see all the intricate detail that goes into making a single piece of jewelry. It really is incredible!

David Nelson - Sculpture

Our fourth and final artist that I am going to feature in this blog is David Nelson. David is a Colorado sculptor who specializes in realistic life size and monumental bronze sculptures. He has been an artist for 24 years. We are anxiously awaiting what he will bring to the Redstone Art Fair this weekend. If you would like to see more of David Nelson’s sculptures, you can click HERE to see his website.
