Utah Artist Randall Lake

Esteemed painter Randall Lake traveled to Europe to hone his art and it was in France that he discovered Mormonism. He eventually settled in Utah, which has been his home since 1973. Over time, his paintings have reflected Lake's own journey -- from traditional landscapes as a dedicated Mormon to more daring works as an openly gay man. Lake has a new exhibit opening next week in Salt Lake City, so we're rebroadcasting our conversation about his life and art. (Rebroadcast)

On Thursday, April 23rd, from 6:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m., Randall Lake will open his one-man show "Paris Rock n'Roll." The exhibit continues April 24th - 27th from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. 158 East 200 South in Salt Lake City. Learn more about Randall Lake on his website, www.randalllakeart.com
