Günther Haidenthaller: November 25 – December 22
Günther Haidenthaller emigrated with his family from Austria as a child, and grew up drawing and painting. His interest in art continued through junior high and high school, and he majored in illustration and advertising design at Utah State University. He spent 27 years in advertising graphic design and art direction, with occasional illustration projects to keep things interesting. In 2015 Günther made the decision to pursue his passion for painting full-time.
“Being Austrian, I am haunted by the ethereal, dreamlike quality of light in the moisture-laden European atmosphere. I strive to express that longing in every image I create, and hope that the viewer will feel my vision. Art is all about passion, and this is mine.” His other passions include soccer, ski mountaineering, ice climbing, skydiving, and whitewater kayaking. He has studied with a number of prominent, well-known artists including Randall Sexton, Joshua Clare, Carl Purcell, Kathryn Stats, Stephen Stauffer, Colley Whisson, Lyn Boyer, Doug Braithwaite, and David Santillanes. He also counts Frank FrazeYa, Bernie Fuchs, Bart Forbes, and John Harris as artistic heroes. Günther is a member of Oil Painters of America and the American Impressionist Society, as well as several local Utah artists’ organizations. He makes his home in Alpine, Utah.
Ash Mae Hoiland: December 23 – January 19
Artist Statement: I grew up in the Provo valley and have always had a deep love for the mountains and the lake that surround us there. I see them as wise ancestors who know so much more of both the complexity of this land, and the simplicity of getting to be here for a short time. As I’ve grown up, I’ve tried to grapple with the realities of the specific history of this place and the fact that my own ancestors had something to do with the way it was taken and changed from the people who inhabited it.
For years when I painted or sketched, mountains and the lake would show up, almost subconsciously, as if I was paying homage to them every chance I could get. As I’ve left the religion that raised me, I’ve learned that there is new meaning in the ancient geology of this landscape, and a new reverence for my brief time living with this land.
I see this body of work as a series of prayers of gratitude to this place. And while I know it does not re-write histories or futures, I find that sometimes painting and writing are the best ways for me to reckon with and be in the present.

All artist demonstrations are from 12:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. Each exhibit is on display until the next artist begins.
The Sundance Art Studio & Gallery rotates out artwork every four weeks highlighting Utah artists. On the first Saturday of the new exhibit, the artist is in the studio demonstrating their process from 12:30-4:30pm. We recently have expanded the Visiting Artist program around the resort to now include a Quarterly Visiting Artist in the Spa and in the hallway between the General Store and the Deli.
Interested artists may submit a portfolio to the Art Studio & Gallery Manager for consideration at firstname.lastname@example.org.
