SUU members will showcase their talents at the Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery in February, with an exhibition created to showcase exciting new works of art created by members of SUU’s art and design faculty.

The exhibition will open with a reception on Thursday, February 4 at 7:00 p.m. and will run through Saturday, March 13, 2010. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, noon to 7:00 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public.

Ten full-time professors and eleven adjunct professors will exhibit work at this exhibition.

After spending time at Parowan Gap during the fall 2009 semester, faculty members created new work inspired by the area. Other work created by faculty members will also be on display. The artworks were developed using a variety of media including painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, graphic design, photography and illustration.

An artist who will participate in this exhibition is Jeremias Paul, assistant professor of photography. Through the use of multiple photographs and the arrangement of the artwork, Paul hopes to create a new experience of the Parowan Gap formation for each visitor. He used a primitive lensless camera, called a pinhole, to create a series of photographs. The use of this particular camera was important to the concept of the piece because the camera allows air to flow freely through the film. “The location literally touched the film,” says Paul.

Additional information about this exhibit is available online or by calling 435-586-5432.

The mission of the Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery is to exhibit, collect, and preserve historical and contemporary works of art significant to the interior of the American West. Additionally, the Gallery hosts art exhibits that represent the major artistic styles and periods of world cultures.
