Salt Lake City, Utah – Renowned artist Jamie Wyeth recently created a series of paintings rarely addressed in contemporary works. The Seven Deadly Sins are long associated with Christian art, but in Wyeth's interpretation, pride, envy, anger, greed, sloth, gluttony and lust are acted out by sea gulls. Wyeth is in Utah for the opening of his exhibit at the Salt Lake Art Center. Today, he joins us to talk about his work and his place in what has been called the first family of American art.

Jamie Wyeth's "Seven Deadly Sins" will be on exhibit at the Salt Lake Art Center January 27 - May 22, 2010. The opening reception is tomorrow, Wednesday evening from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, click here or call 801-328-4201.

Christy Karras joined us for a look at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. She's covering the festival for the Seattle Times and on her blog
