Utah Bride and Groom

Wedding Fashion Inspiration at the UTAH MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS

Context is everything. The setting in which we see something colors our appreciation and opinion of it. When the Utah Museum of Fine Arts needed to update the building to accommodate the latest in conservation technology, the galleries were reconfigured to better suit the diverse art collection and the walls received dazzling new colors.  What better way to show off beautiful rooms than with beautiful clothes? And whether you are the bride or attending the wedding, we think everyone should look great at the wedding. So we framed the eye-popping creations of local Utah designers within the new UMFA.  Bask in the beauty.

ART

The Whirlpool Naruto in Awa Province, after Hiroshige, (French) 1900, oil on canvas, artist unknown. Japanese woodblock prints had a profound impact on the work of late 19th-century artists, including Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, and Émile Bernard, in whose studio this painted copy of a Hiroshige print was discovered.

ART

George Henry A. Hall (American), September, 1858, oil on canvas. Fruits ripen and flowers bloom as autumn arrives in George Henry Hall’s September. The composition’s large scale and sensual subject matter must have seduced potential patrons when it was exhibited publicly in 1859.

ART

Jann Haworth (American), The White Charm Bracelet, 1963/1964, remade 2004, canvas, muslin, stuffing, and thread. A pioneer of soft and stuffed sculpture, the Salt Lake City-based Haworth often works with materials and techniques that challenge the art world’s devaluation of “women’s work.” Here, Haworth’s giant charm bracelet is handsewn out of raw canvas, a material traditionally reserved for the “high art” of oil painting.
