Karl Momen is a painter and sculptor who is one of the last living artists trained in the Bauhaus movement. In America, Momen is best known as the creator of the epic 87-foot Metaphor: The Tree of Utah sculpture located adjacent to Interstate 80 in the stark Bonneville Salt Flats region of Utah. This suite from the late 1990s demonstrates Momen’s primary visual language of formalism, simplistic compositions, and color through his symbolic interpretations of some of Shakespeare’s most famous plays.

Opening Monday, August 5, the touring exhibition Al Farrow: Wrath and Reverence will make its eighth and final stop at Southern Utah Museum of Art (SUMA), on the campus of Southern Utah University (SUU).

Wrath and Reverence brings together pieces of Al Farrow’s work from private and public collections across the United States. These ornate sculptures depicting religious structures, ritual objects, and reliquaries are inspired by the world’s three major religions: Judaism, Islam and Christianity. What makes Farrow’s work stand out from other religious artwork is his use of unconventional materials such as deconstructed guns, bullets, bone, glass and steel.

“Beauty is not a concern for much of the art being produced today, yet it remains a universal attraction. I use the beauty of religious architecture to attract my viewers into closer inspection. Once close, the viewer discovers that these beautiful sculptures are made with violent materials,” said Farrow. “My hope is that the viewer is seduced into wondering about this juxtaposition and begins to think about the relationship between religion and war, which has existed throughout history.”

Beginning its national tour in 2015, Wrath and Reverence has also shown at Forum Gallery in New York City, 21c Museum Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky, Bellevue Arts Museum in Bellevue, Washington and Museum of Craft and Design in San Francisco among other museums and galleries. For this exhibition, SUMA received a loan from the de Young Museum, part of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, for the work titled The Spine and Tooth of Santo Guerro. This sculpture is inspired by European Catholic cathedrals and houses the spine of Santo Guerro, a fictional saint of war, as a commentary of how many European cathedrals were built with the intention of viewing religious relics.

“Securing a loan from the de Young Museum is a great achievement for our museum and our local arts community,” said Jessica Farling, director/curator of SUMA. “This loan is another example of how quickly SUMA is growing to become a world-class museum in the heart of southern Utah, bringing diverse and thought-provoking exhibitions to the region. Exhibitions like Wrath & Reverence help Cedar City continue to be known as Utah’s destination for the arts.”

Visitors will have the opportunity to meet the artist during multiple events throughout the exhibition. Farrow will attend the final SUMA Summer Nights event on Thursday, August 1 when Friends of SUMA members and Utah Shakespeare Festival ticket holders will have the opportunity to meet him and receive an exclusive look at one piece from the show. He will also attend the member’s preview event on August 3, when Friends of SUMA members will have the opportunity to view the entire exhibition before it opens to the public. The museum is teaming up with A.P.E.X. at SUU to host Farrow for a public talk on Thursday, September 19 at 11:30 a.m. in the Hunter Conference Center. Before the show closes, SUMA will host a gallery talk with Farling on October 1 at 4 p.m. Al Farrow: Wrath and Reverence will be on display through October 5, 2019.

Manuel de Cervantes, aging and an utter failure in his varied careers as playwright, poet and tax collector, sits in a Seville dungeon with his manservant, awaiting trial by the Spanish Inquisition for an offense against the Church. The other prisoners set up a mock trial: if Cervantes is found guilty, he will hand over all his possessions. Cervantes agrees to do so, and offers his defense in the form of a play. Producing a make up kit, he transforms himself into an old man who calls himself Don Quixote de la Mancha.

Over the past several years, the Southern Utah Heritage Choir has conducted numerous performance tours throughout the United States and the world, including Washington D.C., Carnegie Hall, Midwestern United States, San Diego, Vienna, England, Ireland, Scotland, Central Europe, Armenia, Czech Republic, China, and Mexico. The choir is eagerly anticipating their next performance tour in Rome, Italy, October 8-15, 2019. In preparation for this excursion, the choir under the direction of Principal Conductor Dr. Ken Peterson, and Associate Conductor Kathy Brown, with accompanist and Artistic Director Tami Creamer, with Jennifer Redfearn at the piano, and Karen Kennedy at the organ, will present their annual fall concert “To Italy With Love” on Friday, September 20, 2019, at 7:30 P.M., in the Cox Performing Arts Center, Dixie State University.

The program includes favorites from their 2018-2019 concert repertoire as well as some beloved hymns and anthems that span over two decades of performances. It also incorporates four a’cappella pieces that the choir will be performing in St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. To begin the concert, the choir pulls out all the stops to present Jeffery L. Ames’ majestic, rhythmic Latin setting titled “Gloria Fanfare,” followed by Dan Forrest’s exquisite “My Jesus I Love Thee.” The choir will finish the set with an a’cappella selection, Ralph Manuel’s timeless “Alleluia,” followed by Tami Creamer’s touching arrangement of “Take Time to be Holy.”

Next featured are three traditional Americana selections. First, the choir picks up the pace with Mack Wilberg’s exuberant “Bound for the Promised Land,” followed by “Pilgrim Song,” a stirring, folk hymn with rich, harmonic texture arranged by Ryan Murphy, Associate Conductor of the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square. The choir finishes with Shawn Kirchner’s “Sweet Rivers,” a delightful favorite from the choir’s Flag Day Concert that pairs an old hymn text with an original melody. Kirchner’s brilliant work also couples polyphonic choral style with a banjo-like piano accompaniment. Both elements add considerable motion and excitement throughout the piece.

The list of favorites continues with Mack Wilberg’s inspiring “Come, Come Ye Saints” followed by two short, yet moving a’cappella pieces, Rene Clausen’s “Set Me As A Seal” and a Russian hymn, “Hear My Prayer” by Alexander Kopylov. Organist, Karen Kennedy will then follow with Rick Elliot’s intricate organ arrangement of Handel’s “The Rejoicing.”

The choir returns with more favorites: Craig Courtney’s masterful text painting expressed in “From Earth to Heaven,” Norwegian composer, Ola Gjeilo’s stunning piece “Across the Vast Eternal Sky,” one last a’cappella selection, “God So Loved the World,” and Tami Creamer’s “I Know That My Savior Loves Me,” a children’s hymn that has become a favorite throughout the world. The choir will close
with Dan Forrest’s compelling arrangement of one of the most beloved hymns of all time, “How Great Thou Art.”

The choir invites the community to enjoy this wonderful evening of music.

Would you have been a good pioneer?  Could you have survived living in the last half of the 19th century?  Understanding that the telephone had just been invented, there were no televisions, no cars, no supermarkets, and, gasp, no shopping malls?

Plus, to travel across the new United States took weeks or months.  What did someone do who desperately needed a new dress?  With few clothing stores, and no ordering online for two-day delivery, women had to be creative and industrious to look the way they wanted to look.  Remember the pictures of women from that era?  Fashionable ladies wanted hourglass figures and small waists.  No tunics with leggings or muumuus anywhere.

Do you wonder how the ladies of the time (known as the Victorian era) achieved those hourglass shapes?  The Daughters of the Utah Pioneers will answer that as they begin their season of Third Weekend Events at the McQuarrie Memorial Museum in St. George.

Join historical clothier and researcher, Denise Winter for an entertaining and educational presentation about the sociology of the corset and the fashions, understructure, and customs of the era on Saturday, September 21, at 10:00 a.m.  Come and enjoy skits, demonstrations, and some lucky attendee may get to try wearing a corset. You may leave with a whole new appreciation for the endurance of your great grandmothers.
