There are three reasons you might head to James Anthony Gallery (241 E. Broadway) this weekend.
1. You have a Hollywood crush on a) Zooey Deschanel, or b) Emily Deschanel.
2. You like to spend your leisure time supporting good causes, and proceeds from the current James Anthony Gallery exhibit will benefit the Utah Domestic Violence Council, an intervention organization. (Sorry, we don’t have any chocolate to couple the evening with, this time.)
3. You realize that the photography of clout-carrying Chris Anthony isn’t to be missed. Anthony, a Los Angeles-based once-rock photographer who has worked with such heavy hitters as The Dandy Warhols and My Chemical Romance, is bringing a photographic series titled “Victims & Avengers” to Salt Lake City—a collection that explores domestic violence through 27 photographs, with the Deschanel duo as his models.
The exhibit also includes a limited number of giclee prints, signed and numbered by the artist.
Victims & Avengers runs through April 17. The James Anthony Gallery is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
