Art Box-For January’s Art Stroll, Art Box is privileged to feature poet Liz Cala in an exhibit — See the Light — honoring her brother, Brett Cala, on the 10th anniversary of his passing. The exhibit will showcase the beautiful and thought-provoking photography of Brett (adept at capturing intimate moments on his many world travels), accompanied by the equally intimate personal writings of Liz. This exhibit is one of beauty, light and grace, and also an endeavor to raise awareness for suicide prevention.
Message from Liz:
See the Light
Brett Cala was an exemplary person who dedicated his life exploring, learning and capturing the light of others through his lens. The photography Brett created not only depicted the essence of his subject, it reflected the light from within himself.
If then, we are what we see, our individual responsibility within our shared humanity is the empathy we become.
Ignite your bravery, and see the light.
Thank you to Deanna & Judy at Art Box for their compassion and support in presenting this exhibit, to Beehive Company for providing the accompaniments, and to the Utah Chapter of AFSP for fundraising materials.

Artist Statement & Invitation from Cam Mcleod:
I am an action sports and adventure lifestyle photographer. I have traveled to the far corners of the world seeking adventure and documenting these experiences. Much of my work is informed by my time growing up in the Midwest running barefoot along the sandy shores of Lake Michigan and now where the snowy slopes of the Wasatch Mountains are my playground. I am nostalgic and appreciate that cameras are tools for me to explore and communicate those emotions. I am driven by my own curiosity. I believe photography to be art and pursue my artistic vision with endless tenacity. In the end I deeply respect the artistic process and understand that as much as I try to define “It”, “It” more profoundly defines me.
The body of work to be presented is a fine art representation of my work over the past 5 years. Each print has been carefully selected, proofed, printed, matted and framed by myself. Each piece is a limited edition fine-art print of archival quality. Great care has been taken every step of the way to provide you with a thoughtful experience.

The Local Artisan Collective-Our featured artists this month is Arina Ashby from Infused Designs:
The Artist… At the age of eight I fell in love with crocheting when I was in the garage and my eyes fell upon some of my mother’s orange yarn. I instantly thought “wouldn’t that look amazing in a rainbow themed afghan!” So began my love of color and putting it to work brightening my life and the lives of those around me. Yes, yarn was my first love, but it certainly was not my only love. Since that first afghan I’ve carried on with beads, wire, puzzles, macramé, and any other medium that seduces my creative soul.
The Designer… As a graduate from the Art Institute with a degree in Graphic Design, I’ve learned to put The Artist to work designing all manner of things. From book covers, business cards, and flyers, to the logo and signs that adorn the Local Artisan’s Collective storefront. My work in design has led me to employment at a calendar design company and designing trade show exhibits as well as making flyers, brochures, and other marketing materials.
The Student… If you can’t tell already, I love to learn. In fact, my personal motto is “learn something new every day.” My love of learning extends beyond the blackboard and lecture halls, it grows inside me every time I pick up a book about yoga, healthy living, art, or astrology. And as I learn about these things I cherish the items that grow from my newfound knowledge and skills.
In closing I’d like to thank you for taking the time to read and learn about me, and I encourage you to learn something new and to teach that thing to someone new so that our children can someday become teachers to the next generation.
We will also have a jewelry class happening. Come and make a pair of earrings. All materials and tools will be provided. Taught by Rene Venegas from Galleon's Gold Jewelry. Sign up for this on the website: localartisancollective.com

Weber County Building-Will be hosting Paul Crow: On Ice, a photography Exhibition dealing with Global Climate Change by Weber State Department of Visual Art & Design professor Paul Crow.
The month I was born, the first Nimbus satellite was launched, taking images of polar ice as it began its work. From that September in 1964 to September 2012, the ice coverage in the arctic has fallen by half. And the ice is thinner.
Ice sheets are expanses of glacier ice covering surfaces of land and free water greater than 50,000 square kilometers. The only ice sheets now on earth are in Greenland and Antarctica. Antarctica loses a hundred cubic kilometers of ice each year. New icebergs are born of melting glaciers, breaking free into the open ocean. Sea levels rise.Ice is a time capsule, storing bits of creatures, traces of gasses and waters from prior earths. Some of it dead, some of it not quite. In the year that I was born, scientists began tracking the long-term ice record of the Arctic lake Kilpisjärvi at the northwestern tip of Finland, not far from the point where the borders of Sweden, Norway, and Finland meet. Typically frozen for eight months of the year, Lake Kilpisjärvi has frozen an average of 2.3 days later each decade since 1964, and in each of those decades the lake has seen a decrease of an average of 3.4 days of total ice cover.
As the temperature of the earth's atmosphere rises, ancient ice is melting, freeing living cells of million-year-old bacteria once contained in the safety of the freeze, and occasionally coughing up a frozen mammoth.
Albedo, Latin for "whiteness", is a measure of the reflectivity of a surface. For a planet, it is the amount of solar radiation (including light) that is reflected back into space. For millions of years, including the entire period of human evolution, earth's albedo has hovered around 0.39, the result of the reflective balance of forests, open lands, seawater and ice. As we lose ice from the earth's surface, we reflect less light back into space. We become dimmer. We absorb heat, as ice dies into water.
Opens 6pm Friday January 5 in concert with Ogden City Arts First Friday Art Stroll, continues through Feb 24.
Main Hallway, Weber County Building... open during regular business hours.
Weber County Building is located at 2380 Washington Blvd.
