K2 Gallery, Helper will present the fourth installment of Kate Kilpatrick-Miller’s acclaimed gallery series, “The Faces of Helper,” on June 21 at 7 p.m. This installment will include 13 portraits of well-known Helper residents.
The Faces of Helper project, begun in 2017, is playing a vital role in the preservation of Helper’s history and culture. As the Helper community embraces its future as one of the up-and-coming communities in Utah, Kate Kilpatrick-Miller’s art and vision is keeping the lives and stories of Helper’s earlier residents alive and well. Kilpatrick-Miller’s long-term goal is to produce over 140 portraits of Helper residents and preserve their oral histories. At the conclusion of the project, Kilpatrick-Miller hopes to publish the portraits and oral histories associated with them in a volume titled “The Faces of Helper.”
Kilpatrick-Miller, a graduate of Westminster College, is the co-owner of K2 Gallery, along with painter and sculptor Karen Jobe Templeton.
The opening will feature the following members of the Helper community: Raymond Garcia, Mary Vigor, John Dunn, Delee Montoya, Hayden Hunter, Fred and Pam Kirkwood, Andrea Martinez, Jona and Tony Gonzales, and The Gibson Sisters – Marilyn, Priscilla, and Judy
K2 Gallery is located at 102 South Main Street in Helper.
