To start out 2015 we checked in with some Utah artists to see what they are up to in the new year. We’ll be running these short features throughout the month.
Working in acrylic silk screen or acrylic on plywood from photographs, Paul Heath plays with shapes, color, and design in two and three dimensions to create a trompe l’oeil effect in his iconographic works, usually of Salt Lake City signage. His cards are sold at the downtown Library Store. But just recently he became a grade school art teacher for M. Lynn Bennion Elementary through the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program and the Salt Lake City School District. He is enjoying sharing his passion for visual art with children grades K-6 and is working toward a Master’s degree in Education through USU. Here is a link to his art room website: M. Lynn Bennion Art Room.
Every January we check in with Utah artists to see what the new year holds in store for them.
