Square One: Helper Artists of Utah exhibition at Finch Lane Gallery

Once an abandoned mining town, Helper, Utah is now a thriving art community. The success of Helper was an unintended consequence of the desire of a number of educators, led by art professors David Dornan and Paul Davis, who found that the lonely town offered not only the solitude they needed for creativity in their own work, but affordable space to teach serious art students the fundamentals of drawing and painting contemporary realism. Armed with the mantra, “learn your craft,” the Helper school opened in the spring of 1995. The school’s teachers didn’t just tell students how to paint, they showed them how to paint. Dornan noted “…if a student wants to paint a better apple, show them how to paint a better apple, don’t start talking about the relevance of an apple.” For Paul Davis, the school offered space for clarity, “after a while it got so that you could see what a student was thinking while looking at their drawing or painting, then you could help them to understand that the problem had nothing to do with mere talent, but that the issue was more about the way in which they focused their minds.” The exhibition runs through February 23.
