Weekend Events: The demise of Joseph Smith, Halloween in July, and more

27Friday — Jennifer Rasmusson Solo Exhibition

Currently on show at A Gallery is Jennifer Rasmusson’s abstract paintings that are interpretations of her everyday world. Her process is a fluid conversation between herself, the paint, and various materials. The result is layers of luminous color, shape, and space. She reaches for a balance between the light and dark spaces in the composition.
A Gallery, 1321 S. 2100 East, Mon.–Sat., through Aug. 18, 10 a.m.–6 p.m. Free,

— Live Show: Joseph Smith’s Demise

Squatters Pub, 147 W. Broadway, 8–10 p.m. Tickets $5 at the door
