We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Pam Bowman & Anne Spencer

Friday, June 5-Thursday, July 23



How different is the rhythm of daily life in China from that in the United States? In a new mixed-media exhibit at Finch Lane Gallery, Pam Bowman—who recently spent a year in China—juxtaposes domestic ritual and repetition in neighborhoods from Nanjing to Provo. Video and collage are employed, as the artist describes it, to concentrate on “the commonality of humankind rather than focusing on the exotic.”

Also featured this month at Finch Lane, photographer Anne Spencer showcases new work in Women of Rock and Ice. Her black-and-white images (“Carissa” is pictured) capture women engaging in extreme outdoor activities—role models for the active life rather than fashion models.

“To show the grit in their character,” Spencer says of her photographic subjects, “is all the more effective by seeing it through film grain.”
