PTC's Loge Gallery to Present 'Patterns'
Pioneer Theatre Company's Loge Gallery presents "Patterns," an exhibit of paintings by local artist Kelly Seim. The collection will be on display during PTC's productions of The Rocky Horror Show and Outside Mullingar, October 22 through November 14, 2015.
Kelly Seim grew up in Bountiful, Utah. Seim received a BFA in 1997 at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and then returned to the West where she pursued an Masters in Social Work in 2002 at the University of Utah.
Seim believes that the power in both art and therapy comes from asking good questions and prompting the other to search for and unearth their own narrative and meaning. Her current series is iconographic: beautiful, stylized women are set like jewels in decorative, vibrantly colored environments that are full of symbolic meaning and invitations to explore emotion, experience, relationships, and the unconscious.
Seim's paintings have been featured in exhibitions and galleries in Utah, Colorado, and Michigan. Seim currently resides in Salt Lake City, where she works as a psychotherapist Monday through Thursday and observes studio art hours Friday through Sunday
The exhibit can be experienced on the mezzanine level of the Roy W. and Elizabeth E. Simmons Pioneer Memorial Theatre. The gallery is open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday for the general public and before and after performances for ticket holders.
