Color Me Mine– The newest addition to the Art Stroll line up will be featuring student artists. Their first artist is Makalyn Martinez. Here is a little about her written in her own hand.
My name is Makalyn Martinez. I am currently attending Fremont high school. I really enjoy art. I have been inspired by many different artist and photography. My artistic style is pencil, paint, ink. I have been drawing since I knew what drawing was. Everyday exactly at 9:00 & 1:00 my favorite artist Bob Ross would come on, and with my little paints from the dollar store. I would try my hardest to replicate his style. I am enrolled in a college art in high school trying to get scholarships. I have entered a lot of art competitions recently. I would love to keep going with art. I believe art is not just something on paper but has an outstanding story to every piece. I am a 16-year-old artist that has followed my strong passion for art. Thank you for this opportunity.
Color Me Mine is located at 188 25th Street, Ogden.

The organization is run mostly by a group Ogden based youth.

Ogden’s Platforms- Participating artists: Molly Morin, Alexis Furlong, Lenka Konopasek, and Jessica Ritter Hollon
Molly Morin: Programming for People: A human-powered algorithmic drawing.
This project will use a set of rules (an algorithm) driven by coin flips and dice rolls to generate a composition within the PLATFORMS matrix. It is a participatory exercise in order and chaos, and an experiment in computer-less coding. You are invited to join me in play to build a work upon best-laid plans, random chance, and human intervention.
My installation is made from individual silver strips put together in a visual curtain that shimmers and changes according to the air movement. It creates a mirage that reflects and breaks down the surrounding environment. I want the viewer to question what is real and what is perceived.
I am interested in products that are created for ease and single use, whose impacts are infinite. Their functions are ephemeral, but their material immortal. Once used, these transient materials are often stowed away, or thrown out to weave and embed themselves into the natural landscape. The intention of my work is to explore this relationship between the synthetic and the natural by weaving organic forms out of these materials and then installing them into a “synthetic landscape”.
Platforms is an outdoor gallery space located on the corner of Adams and 25th street.

The Local Artisan Collective-. This month we are featuring the artist Susan Snyder, M.S., who is an Ogden artist, naturalist, and environmental educator who spent a decade teaching at Ogden Nature Center. Illustrated nature journaling is her preferred medium. “Drawing from life teaches me to stop and really see what is happening in the world that around us. Nature isn’t a place to go. It’s where we live,” she says. Susan has won state and national awards for her environmental education work, and has taught nature journaling classes for children, adults, and teachers throughout Utah. Susan’s nature-themed watercolors will be available in the shop, where she offers art classes for adults and children throughout the year. She lives in Ogden with her husband, their cat, and the neighborhood crows and scrub jays, for whom she sets out breakfast every morning.
We love to support teens to love art. This month’s featured school is South Ogden Junior High School 7th to 9th grade. We are excited to see their great art.

Utah Gem Gallery- Utah Gem Gallery will be featuring watercolor artist Alison Benjamin. Alison is a self-taught watercolor artist inspired by nature, introspection, and her father. Her untraditional style is an insight into her tendency to “paint outside the lines” and “live outside the box.” She has an eye for design, pattern, color, and movement. Her art is symbolic, intuitive, and holds a mystical message. She paints each piece knowing that it will eventually end up in the perfect place to inspire, awaken, and help empower.
