Covey Center for the Arts UP: The Written Word, Calligraphy by Carole Taylor. Many years of experience and attendance at numerous seminars helped Taylor develop her own style. In 1988 she began writing scripture and inspirational quotes and gifted them to friends and relatives. Over 30 years later and her calligraphy has become more than great gifts. She has added the “spark” of oriental watercolors to some of her work, but most of her pieces reflect the influence of ancient manuscripts. Through AND: Visionism: Hagen Haltern and Jared Harlow consists of digital images printed with archival inks and paper in limited editions. These images are created from a variety of source material (ink washes, paintings, drawings, photographs, etc.), and composed in Photoshop on an iMac. They follow the ideal of greatest variety in strongest unity.|0|

Brigham Young University Museum of Art
Think Flat: The Art of Andy Warhol and Takashi Murakami
features selections from the Freedman Family Collection and the BYU Museum of Art and focuses on the two artists' relationships to works that explore the "low" of pop art and a celebrity-driven world (see our review in the October 2012 edition).|1| AND: People in a Hard Land: Iconic Images of Life in the Southwest focuses on iconic images of people in the American Southwest: pioneers, cowboys, and Indians moving across a vast uninhabited landscape; men and women engaged in the hard labor of taming a wild land.|2| AND: Object of Devotion, medieval English alabaster sculpture from the Victoria and Albert Museum that date back to the early 1300s.|3|AND: michael whiting: 8-bit modern, in the Museum's Sculpture Garden, features brightly painted, massive, pixilated sculptures exploring the visual relationship between early video games and 1960s minimalism. AND: In the Shadows of Timpanogos, photographs by John Telford. Telford contrasts the stability of geologic formations with variation in atmosphere, color, and vegetation over time and season. The photographs come together as a visual poem that ponders the cyclical rhythm of nature and diversity of form that provide an unending source of interest and renewal.

BYU Library Exhibits UP: Weir Was Here – Secret Rooms, Doors and Windows, photographs by New York artist Xiomáro, featuring photographs from the first artistic collection documenting the beauty and textures of the interiors of American impressionist Julian Alden Weir's house and studio, never seen by the general public.|4| These photographs feature rooms, doors, and windows, adding a sense of intimacy with their lives, thus humanizing their art.

St. George Art Museum UP: For the Love of Travel & Art by Sue Cotter & Spike Ress. The artist couple will be exhibiting works inspired by their various travel experiences. Spike paints directly on location, Sue often writes, sketches, collects found objects, seeks stories and details she will later assemble into a symbolic whole. AND: A Dream, works by J. Kirk Richards and Brian Kershisnik. J. Kirk Richards is a favorite among admirers of contemporary spiritual artwork. In a genre dominated by sanitized, manufactured-under-studio-lights imagery, Richards has embraced subtlety with textural, poetic, and mysterious images (see our article in the October 2012 edition).|6| Kershisnik's images of simplified drawing and washes of color display a deep understanding of human psychology. AND: Metal Imagined, sculptures by Matt Clark. A self-taught welder who has been in a wheelchair since an injury at age 17, Clark has been creating sculpture for thirty years. The steel, stainless steel, copper, stone and found objects he uses in his art were originally created to perform a specific function but had outlived their usefulness. |7| AND: Idaho Gallery of 12, a group of 12 professional artists residing in Idaho Falls, Idaho who have banded together to promote each other and themselves at the same time.
