Beginning March 6 and running through April 17, letterpress artist David Wolske exhibits his prints based on the letters W-O-R-D. The exhibition titled “Vessels” will be shown in the Park Gallery at the The Art Barn. An opening reception will be held on Friday, March 6, from 6 to 8 PM.
For Wolske, the beauty of words stems from the inherent potential for a series of straight and curved strokes from each letter to come together in countless configurations to create infinite meanings. The shape of the letters becomes the tool for the artist. To capture the beauty of letters, Wolske developed a printing technique that he calls an “isotype,” wherein parts of letters are masked off to isolate their linear and artistic components. The colored prints are then rearranged, reassembled, and layered to compose abstract “phrases” and “paragraphs” that celebrate linguistic malleability.
Wolske is the creative director of the Book Arts Program and Red Butte Press at the University of Utah.

A Panel Discussion: Utah’s coal plants belch pollution into our skies and profoundly affect the airsheds of the entire four corners region. From contributing to global warming, to impacting health, and obscuring some of the state’s most impressive vistas and impacting rural tourist economies, there’s hardly an aspect of our lives that these coal plants don’t touch.
In the coming months, we have a unique opportunity to limit these emissions and demand stricter pollution controls from regulators.
Join HEAL Utah, The Utah Chapter, Sierra Club and our panel of experts to learn more about these coal plants and some upcoming opportunities to limit their lung busting, toxic emissions.
Please join us on Wednesday, April 1st for a provocative lecture from Dan Beard, former Commissioner of the Bureau of Reclamation and author of the new book, “Deadbeat Dams: Why We Should Abolish the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and Tear Down Glen Canyon Dam.”
Beard reveals the desperate need to change western water policies and exposes the public to the lack of common sense, corruption, and utter waste of taxpayers’ money that he witnessed over a long government career spanning three decades. The faults of the present system of federally assisted water management efforts are amply detailed, and an agenda for reform is provided that can be used as ammunition by a new generation of water reformers.

The live band for this concert features diverse instrumentation such as seven-string guitar, cavaquinho, a vocal quartet, a large Brazilian drumline and, new this year, a string quartet featuring cellist Caitlin Andrews from Chicago.

Beginning March 6 and running through April 17, artist Mark England exhibits his landscape paintings in “Human Landscapes.” Hannah Vaughn and Kevin Arthofer use weather maps, data graphics, and projections on sculpture to document weather along the Wasatch Front in their installation “You Are Here.” An opening reception will be held on Friday, March 6, from 6 to 8 PM.
Mark England, a well-known Utah landscape painter, focuses on how individuals see themselves through landscape and impose upon it their values. He uses full-sized figures within the landscapes, thus creating a whole new relationship and raising many questions. England twists perspectives, visually and historically, by juxtaposing unrelated buildings and events to produce a scene that could take place at any point in time. “In a sense, my paintings are anthropological; in them, I often dwell on the values, activities, and events of ancient and contemporary cultures, ‘tracing’ the traces they left behind,” says England. “These are records of how we impact, leave our mark, our history, on the earth.”
The destination marker “You Are Here” takes on new meaning in the exhibition of the same name by Hannah Vaughn and Kevin Arthofer. Using an approach that is both scientific and abstract, the artists seek to overlay the unseen processes on the well-known domain of the Wasatch Front. Using topographical and environmental data, visual representations reveal environmental fluxes that are not otherwise perceived in daily life. Through “maps” that interpret hydrological and experiential data, Vaughn and Arthofer introduce an intimate version of the Wasatch Font over time that is both science and experience. Central to the exhibit is a large topographical map cast of plaster that becomes the surface on which data and time-lapse experience is projected.
From the intimate space of the house to the expansive space of the landscape, we are keenly aware of our physical spatial realities. The longing to investigate place occurs at every scale and is transcendent of culture. Through this exhibition artists Anna Laurie Mackay, Meredith Prévot and Jean Richardson explore the concept of place and, more specifically, the notion of “Other Places”.
