Reclamation Projects: Carol Berrey and Simon Blundell at the BDAC

Reclamation Projects: Carol Berrey and Simon Blundell at the BDAC

All of us — well, most of us — have become conscientious recyclers, making sure to set aside our plastic bottles and aluminum cans so they can be turned into bicycles, or our cardboard and paper products so they can, well, be turned back into paper and cardboard. But Carol Berrey, now showing at the...

Sustained Gaze: Sunny Taylor's Resolutions at Julie Nester Gallery

Sustained Gaze: Sunny Taylor’s Resolutions at Julie Nester Gallery

What does one say about abstract art? It neither depicts a scene nor tells a story. It does not reference, investigate, or negotiate — or any number of the vague, Latinate verbs endemic to curatorial statements these days— anything. It is, in a term which has been largely forgotten in favor of its better-known-but-less-accurate cousin,...

Inspiration in the Familiar: Jacqui and Lance Larsen's Three-Mile Radius at Springville Museum of Art

Inspiration in the Familiar: Jacqui and Lance Larsen’s Three-Mile Radius at Springville Museum of Art

What do a rusty sewer grate,  “Llama Crossing” street sign, rabbit, and a metal screen door have in common? On the surface, not much. Aside from the llama-crossing sign, these are all ordinary things anyone might see in a neighborhood or while out for a drive in the country. Perhaps even within a three-mile radius....

A Museum of One's Own: Jimmie Jones' vision becomes a reality in the Southern Utah Museum of Art

A Museum of One’s Own: Jimmie Jones’ vision becomes a reality in the Southern Utah Museum of Art

It’s not every artist who can get their own museum. Certainly no Utah artist has.* But to hear talk at the ribbon cutting of the new Southern Utah Museum of Art (SUMA), it seems Jimmie Jones has come close. Jones was the impetus behind the sweeping white structure that now greets drivers as they enter...

A Life in Art: Biography of Jimmie Jones explores the art and influence of the southern Utah painter

A Life in Art: Biography of Jimmie Jones explores the art and influence of the southern Utah painter

“So, I guess there’s Maynard Dixon and this guy,” a friend muses, thumbing through landscapes of Zion and Grand canyons in The Art and Life of Jimmie Jones. And because he is an excellent landscape painter himself, that comparison sticks. Although Jones exhibited at Phillips Gallery for more than a decade (1977-88), some people north...

Fiber Art Explores Meaning and Metaphor in "Textures of Life" at Dixie's Sears Museum

Fiber Art Explores Meaning and Metaphor in “Textures of Life” at Dixie’s Sears Museum

  Woven fiber encompasses both the mundane and the most sacred, technique intermingled with ritual. It is one of the most ancient and most common art forms in cultures the world over, yet, perhaps because of its subtlety, is rarely examined in the setting of a contemporary art gallery. Dixie University’s Textures of Life exhibit...

Denise Milan’s Mists of the Earth at BYU

    “They paved paradise and put up a parking lot” – Joni Mitchell   The idea of paradise is about as slippery as the idea of landscape: no two are exactly alike. They look different to each of us, smell different, imbued with cultural constructs fashioned from our own experiences. No one will have...

Terrece Beesley’s New Directions

You cannot change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction overnight.– Jim Rohn   “A while ago I found myself in a ‘painting rut,’” says Layton artist Terrece Beesley. Instead of staying in that rut, the artist decided to get experimental with her usual style. “I usually paint large pieces, so this was...

Portraits of a Pilgrim Artist: Willy Littig at Mestizo

Portraits of a Pilgrim Artist: Willy Littig at Mestizo

The untitled photographs in Willy Littig’s exhibit Vecinos wander across the walls of Mestizo Gallery like humble pilgrims. Dressed in understated, neat frames, they appear unburdened by worldly pretensions, as if they are on their way to ascetic enlightenment. Littig captured these images on his recent walking pilgrimage along the Camino de Santiago, or St....

Kaziah Hancock

She’s known for goats and for soldiers. The first she has raised for years on her ranch south of Manti, where she’s been given the nickname The Goat Woman: she bears the moniker proudly, her affection for the animals going back to an almost mythical origin story, her birth on a remote homestead in northern...
