Every January we check in with Utah artists to see what the new year holds in store for them.
What’s New: Stefanie Dykes
A co-founder of Saltgrass Printmakers in Sugar House who teaches printmaking and drawing at the U, Stefanie Dykes tells us that she has been learning how to make ceramic bowls and tiles (courtesy of Stacy Phillips) between semesters. The tiles are for Hikmet Loe’s show A Measure of Salt: Contemporary Artists Engaging Great Salt Lake opening at Ephraim’s Granary Art Center on February 13, the same show Frank McEntire is preparing for (see our Jan. 3 entry).
Stefanie says, “2015 is the year of the Sheep! It’s time to let the rams and ewes out of the barn to wander around. I’ve been drawing anamorphic cylindrical drawings with my sheepmen archetypes. Love them!
“And I got a FlipBookit for Christmas. Now all I need to do is develop a narrative in 24 frames.”
