"UP NORTH IMPRESSIONS-AN ARTIST GATHERING SHOWCASE" opened at the Jordan River Arts Council on August 12, 2012--closing Sept. 16th. Karen Kimmell and Pru Barber were co-curators. The exhibit represented works created since 2006 from the Artist Gathering pleine air and winter open studio sessions. In the first year, this group chose to paint barns. Since then, a variety of noted Up North sites have been chosen.
 
Artist Gathering sessions continue throughout the winter months with open studio times & educational activities. This group has attracted both local and seasonal artists. The camaraderie, friendships, and gentle critique have developed positive relationships and increased the skills of participating artists.
