"Peripheries" » Conceptual painter Steven Stradley’s solo exhibition "Peripheries" debuts at CUAC, 175 E. 200 South, Salt Lake City. Stradley, a Utah native who earned his BFA at Utah State and lives in St. George, makes nontraditional paintings that CUAC describes as "investigative installations that highlight the often discarded and forgotten architectural elements specific to CUAC’s gallery space while simultaneously exploring the self-referential properties of painting." The exhibit will be on display through March 15.

"Trent Harris: Echo Cave" » Utah filmmaker Trent Harris will get his first full-scale museum retrospective at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art. The exhibit, "Trent Harris: Echo Cave," will feature screenings of Harris’ more experimental films in the New Genres Gallery — while the Street Gallery will display drawings, sketches, posters, artist books and short films that illuminate his process and style. Friday’s reception is sponsored by Epic Brewing and KCPW.

"Only Light" » The Rio Gallery in the Rio Grande Depot, 300 S. Rio Grande St., marks Martin Luther King Jr. Day with an exhibit, "Only Light," featuring artworks that examine topics relating to King’s spirit and accomplishments in the civil rights movement. Works from 20 artists will be displayed.

"Views From a Harley" » Art at the Main, in the atrium of the City Library (210 E. 400 South), welcomes its newest artist, watercolorist Mary Pusey, with a show called "Views From a Harley." The show features landscape paintings inspired by Pusey’s travels, which since 2007 have mostly been on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
