Summit Arts Showcase hosts 30 local artists

OAKLEY, Utah — July 15 and 16 mark the thirteenth year of the Summit Arts Showcase, held at the Oakley Rodeo grounds in the red barn off SR 32. The Showcase begins Friday from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. and runs Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. This year just under 30 Summit County artists will have booths at the event.

“It’s a two-day show out in Oakley and all of the artists will be selling their goods,” said Jocelyn Scudder, Arts Council executive director. “We have people who do watercolor painting, oil painting, photography, who make jewelry, woodworkers, we have an amazing artist who makes birdhouses, glass artists. So, there’s really something for everyone at the showcase; it’s a really eclectic show. It’s all Summit County residents participate in. That’s always a priority for us is to provide a great platform for our local artists to be able to show their work and thrive.”

Some artists will be performing live demonstrations of their craft so onlookers can have a glimpse into the artists’ processes.

Mountain Town Music will be providing the audio ambiance with David Quackenbush on Friday evening, Christian Scheller, and Gary Dranbow + The Manic Emotions on Saturday. Don’t worry, if you show up hungry. Local Yoli’s Tacos and Umani food trucks will be on-site with food and beverages for sale.

Scudder encourages visitors to make an evening or a day of the event and enjoy Kamas and Oakley’s offerings.

“There’s a lot of really cool galleries [off SR 32]. There’s Don Weller Western Art, ARTIQUE, and then there are a lot of great restaurants. I always tell people to check out the showcase and then head over to Hi-Mountain for one of their famous shakes or do a quick hike in the Uintas and then on the way back swing by the showcase. It’s a beautiful time of year to be out there; we hope that people come out and support our local artists, and enjoy the two-day weekend with us.”
