Park City in the '60s
Francis Zimbeaux's ink & wash drawings

Park City has been transformed three times. First with mining. Then with skiing. And over the past two decades it has been transformed, at least one month out of the year, by Hollywood. So, as the glitterati take over this month during the Sundance Film Festival, we're taking a look back at the way Park City used to be — at the dawn of the ski industry, when miners shacks still dotted the landscape. In the sixties it was a favorite destination for many local painters, including Francis Zimbeaux, who in the mid 1960s created dozens of large ink and wash drawings depicting the old buildings.

The works in this slideshow have been donated for fundraising purposes to Artists of Utah by the Francis H. Zimbeaux Trust. Email us at editor@artistsofutah.org if you'd like to inquire about a specific piece or schedule an appointment to view them.

Art Conversations
Declare your artsiness, and get your site online

Did you find yourself having enough art conversations in 2013? If not, we're here to help you change things in 2014.

Despite certain stereotypes — like all-black gallery garb — you really can't tell who is into art and who isn't. That's why we've come up with our 15 Bytes "do you art?" t-shirts and sweatshirts. Sure, our tagline has some grammatical difficulties. But that's kind of the point, to get your attention. And whether you make art, or simply love engaging with it, you art.

We currently have long-sleeve black t-shirts and black, blue and gray hoodies. Our shirts are only $15 and our hoodies are $30. They are American Apparel California Fleece zip hoodies, in black, blue and gray. In unisex sizes: S, M, L, XL, XXL. We have a limited supply so email us at webmaster@artistsofutah.org and we’ll check to see if we still have your size and color in stock.

And if you're an artist what you might need to get those art conversations going is to finally get your website online.

In February, Artists of Utah will be holding a Website Workshop for Utah Artists, designed to get you up and running online with a website powered by Wordpress.

The workshop will consist of a three week program (we'll be meeting February 11, 18 and 25th for 1 1/2 hour sessions (6:30-8 pm) with a final individualized session to put any final touches to your site). The cost will be $200 and the class will be limited to 5 people. Email us at webmaster@artistsofutah.org if you'd like more information or to register.
