Exhibition Announcements
Up & Upcoming to the South

Springville Museum of Art UP: Family Vacation. Through vintage-inspired artwork from Stephanie Deer, travel posters by John Clark, and traditional Utah landscapes from the SMA permanent collection, this exhibition will recreate a mid-century vacation the whole family will enjoy. AND: Parables, paintings by Liz Lemon Swindle that present Biblical parables in both ancient and modern settings.AND: 30th Annual Spiritual and Religious Exhibition. This exhibition celebrates the diversity of religious experience and belief in our community. Using different media to express these ideas artists create works which will engage and inspire viewers to contemplate and reflect on the vibrant spiritual traditions we share. UPCOMING: 30th Annual Christmas Lamb Show. The annual juried exhibition showcases the art of school-age children from around Utah County. Inspired by a story about the true meaning of Christmas, these young artists create inspired and touching works reflecting their unique vision.

Brigham Young University Museum of Art UP: Treasures of British Art 1400-2000: The Berger Collection. Regarded as one of the most impressive groups of British art assembled in private hands, this exhibit from the Denver Art Museum includes artworks by British masters ranging from portraits of celebrated historical figures to quintessentially British landscapes to horse racing and everything in between (read our review in the September 2015 edition). AND: No Place Like Home: Selections from the Sue and John Wieland Collection of Contemporary Art is an examination of the diverse rituals that define a dwelling, the physical representation of the house, and the universal desire to frame home as the cosmic center (see our review in the November 2015 edition). AND: Organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum, American Chronicles: The Art of Norman Rockwell traces the evolution of Rockwell’s art and iconography throughout his career using in-depth commentary, original artworks, and archival Saturday Evening Post covers spanning 47 years.

BYU Harold B. Lee Library UP: Rose Marie Reid: Glamour by Design. Level 1, Special Collections. AND: UNTITLED: Contending the Limits of Being Labeled, photography by Rikky Fernandes.

Writ & Vision UP: Holiday Art Show, featuring small works (4" x 5") by J. Kirk Richards, Caitlin Connolly, Cassandra Barney, Fidalis Buehler, Jeff Pugh, Susan Krueger-Barber, Liz Lindsay, Justin Wheatley.

Granary Art Center UP:
Pam Bowman's Entwined is a grouping of art works that all use rope-like or string-like materials. Rope and string are used as metaphors for accomplishment, increased strength, and the coming together and combining of things or people. There is an emphasis on relationships and shared journey as we experience life. AND: Josh Winegar's Burst a Part / Burst Apart is a body of work that employs the act of photographing personally significant sites from my life/memory and then rupturing those images with the basic material of photographic work, light. What remains are images of remembrance that have been torn, altered, obscured and transformed by light, alluding to the transformation of growing beyond who one used to be (see our Artist Profile in the November 2015 edition). AND: Madison Colvin: Collect/Compress. In this work, a sheet of glass functions as the representation of this dividing force, compressing forms into two dimension. Pressed by gravity against this surface, insects overwhelm the picture plane. In the plant photographs, the glass takes on a more active, destructive role, shifting and flattening dense groups of plant life, making their forms increasingly two-dimensional.

St. George Art Museum UP:
A Bright Swirling of Bugs, an Installation by Kay Miner. This installation combines the detail and pattern of insects with the beauty and simplicity of gingko leaves. AND: Weaving a Revolution: A Celebration of Contemporary Navajo Baskets (Natural History Museum of Utah) is organized in five thematic sections: Ceremonial Baskets, Innovation and Revival, Fueling the Revolution, Structures of Sumac, and Pushing Boundaries, Preserving Traditions. Along with photography, digital interactives, and videos, the exhibit introduces visitors to the weavers, their remarkable work, and the stories that both underpin and carry forward basketry tradition.

Gallery East (USU Eastern) UP:
For the Love of Landscape, features works by Logan artist Roxane Pfister.
