Chelsea James

We’ve had paintings by University of Utah grad Chelsea B. James bookmarked for a while now. We’re partial to her still life works, with their soft color pallettes and feminine subject matter, though her landscapes are the kind we’d love to decorate our walls with, too. In her artist statement, Chelsea says, “I am intrigued by subtle shifts in value and color, yet seek a personal interpretation of the objects rather than a replication.” We’re also big fans of the titles of her paintings, like one depicting a pair of yellow pumps and a glazed donut called “Going Out For Dessert.”

You can visit Chelsea’s website or blog to see more. She’s in the process of relocating back to Salt Lake City, so we hope to see more of her work at local gallery shows throughout the year. She’s already scheduled for one group show at the Pickett Fairbanks Gallery (aka Magpies Nest) in the Avenues in Salt Lake City in May.

Welcome back, Chelsea!

    You should also check out local Lindsey Frei’s work too. Her work is currently showing at Phillips Gallery in Salt Lake.

    She’s a friend of mine, but I can’t say enough good things about her work.
