Stansbury Art and Lit Artist of the Month
The Stansbury Art and Literary Society Artist for the month of February is Jaime Reynolds. Jaime Reynolds is a person who has been creating some form of art since a young girl. She is a self-taught, eclectic artist and favors combining different items, techniques and mediums into her art. Her premise for this is her feeling everything deserves a second chance to be loved and cherished. The exhibit she is presenting on the Chamber Wall Gallery is a mix of acrylic, soft pastel, inks, charcoal and mixed mediums. These works of art are available to view at the Tooele County Chamber of Commerce, 154 S. Main, Tooele. The public is invited to see this Chamber Wall Gallery display anytime during the Chamber’s regular business hours.
