Light refreshments will be served, and the general public is invited. At a time when multi-tasking is the order of the day and sensory overload is the norm, it is easy to lose touch with the beauty of this world in all its variety. Hadley Rampton, a Utah native, purposely slows her life down Hadley Rampton in order to absorb and enjoy the surroundings that inspire her. Rampton prefers to create en plein air, a French expression meaning “in the open air.” The natural Utah landscape leaps to her canvas as she creates amidst the elements that surround her. In describing her experience creating, Hadley Rampton paints a picture with words. “To stand, nestled in a valley kept company by groves of aspen, my mood no longer remains my own but that of the place. You might say my work is a release of my senses rather than solely a depiction of a scene. The energy with which I paint, my color palette, even the technique I use to apply the paint, (broad, broken strokes with a brush or palette knife, spot glazing with drips of transparent paint), is directly related to my emotional response rather than the result of a pre-calculated process,” states Rampton. Having studied at the University of Utah, Rampton received her Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in Painting and Drawing in 1999, as well as the 1998-1999 University of Utah President’s Award for Outstanding Scholastic Achievement. She’s also been An art exhibition featuring floral involved in various painting workshops, arrangements of Ann Booth will be on display in the Lorna Wattis Swanson Gallery of the Ogden Valley Branch Library, 131 S. 7400 E. Huntsville. Ann Booth has been a resident of northern Utah for the past 14 years. She began working with dried flowers after being inspired by the displays of local artists. Ann’s current exhibit features her most recent and colorful arrangements. Raised in rural northwestern Pennsylvania, Ann spent many hours wandering through the woods, gathering wild plants and making jar terrariums. Her love of plants and flowers grew out of her childhood ramblings and time “Spirit Mailer” by Hadley Rampton Easter treats ^gjÛ]n]jqgf] ÝÛWebkins ÝÛL_dqÛ;gddk ÝÛNgf\]j^mdÛ ZYkc]lÛxdd]jk 5522 East 2200 North Eden, Utah 84310 (801) 745-6627 ÝÛ9mjlkÛ9]]kÛ ¨YdoYqkÛ ÉÛg^^© ÝÛ:Yd\j]Y ÝÛA]o]djq ÝÛYf\Ûegj] <fbgqÛl`]Û[`Yf_]Ûg^Ûk]YkgfkÛYlÛÛ ;glla]Û9][c¿k ÛYdoYqkÛkge]l`af_Û^gjÛ]n]jqgf] email@example.com Tues - Sat 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. EASTER IS SUNDAY, MARCH 23rd spent sprucing up the farmyard lane with her mother. Ann still has a profound love of nature. She travels throughout Weber County to collect flowers, vines, and leaves to include in her floral displays. “When the weather turns cold and the snow blows, I can enjoy the beautiful colors and movement of the garden by looking at my walls. That’s the best reason I can provide for why I create the art I do.” This fantastic exhibition will be on display at the Ogden Valley Branch Library from March 3 thru April 1, 2008.

What ever type of story it may be, we’re asking you to share it with The O GDEN VALLEY NEWS—and, perhaps, with the entire community. On Tuesday, April 22 at 6:30 p.m., we will select a few of the stories to be read at the Ogden Valley Branch library at our own community storytelling festival.
