15 Bytes has been recognized in SL Weekly’s annual Artys awards, which are in this week’s edition of the paper. Artists of Utah got the Staff Picks award for "Best Website for Artists" (read here). You’ll find a number of other visual arts locals recognized in this year’s Artys, including 15 Bytes assistant editor, Laura Durham, for "Best Artists’ Helper." And we’d like to give a little respect back to SL Weekly for their increasing coverage of the visual arts. Way to go.
The founder of Artists of Utah and editor of its online magazine, 15 Bytes, Shawn Rossiter has undergraduate degrees in English, French and Italian Literature and studied Comparative Literature in graduate school before pursuing a career in art.
