Carel Brest van Kempen is going to be at the Hogle Zoo on Friday evening, showing off his artwork. We have fond memories of the zoo; our apartment was just down the road from it in Salt Lake City when we lived there, and when the kids were at that perfect age to be enthusiastic about it all. (Salt Lake City, despite the weird religion everywhere, is actually a wonderful place to raise kids; when we atheists take over the country, we have to remember to build zoos and big parks and lots of schools in our cities.)
Admission is free from 7-9pm. If we were living a little closer, we’d be there—if you’re in that part of Utah, you should make the trip!
Oops, not free, but still a good deal!
The Opening Reception on Friday (Feb 9) from 7-9 is for artists and invited guests only. However the show will run from Feb. 10 – April 1 and is free with paid admission to to Zoo. We have 10 of Carel Brest van Kempen’s pieces in the show as well as the poster for this year’s show he created. The poster will be available for sale for only $5!
