The Howa Gallery is home to the paintings, photographs, sculptures, fashion, and jewelry of over 30 local artists. Pieces vary from modern abstract art, to takes on classic art. The gallery features art from Jeffrey Hale, Toni Youngblood, Lyne Meacham, Meredith Franck, Chauncey Seacrist, Nancy Maxfield, Cody Chamberlain, David Maestas, and Darryl Erdmann, just to name a few. The gallery shows a great assortment of the artistic talent that Utah has to offer. Head up and check it out!
Meredith Franck is a true artisan. She is a fashion designer who creates everything from dreamy jackets, to scarves, jewelry, and purses. All her pieces are made with love, one-of-a-kind, eco-friendly, and many are hand-dyed. She uses antique and vintage fabrics, trims, buttons, and beads from all over the world. I have heard that it is, “Impossible to own only one of Meredith Franck’s creations”. Her clients fall in love with the fabrics and designs, and continue to add pieces to their collections over the years. No two pieces Meredith makes are alike, although she welcomes special requests and custom orders.
We’ve already determined that Paletti is the place to go for fine fashions, but it’s also a great place to find incredible local delicacies. Towards the back of the store, you’ll find decadent soap, lip gloss, honey, chocolate, caramels, nuts, tea, marinades, jams and jellies, all made locally in Utah. There is also an Espresso bar, if you need to add a little extra kick to your day. Head to Paletti to find unique hostess gifts, as well as gifts for birthdays and holidays (like Father’s Day, which is this Sunday!). If you need help finding the perfect gift, Paletti’s friendly staff can definitely point you in the right direction.
