ARTIST STATEMENT

 Artist’s Statement For nearly 50 years I have created stained glass windows and lamps as commission pieces. Some of these are in public places including the Centerville Library, Sugarhouse Library, Kol Ami Temple, Church of the Resurrection (Centerville), Rowland Hall School. My glass lamps, along with steel work by my husband, David, were shown at the Salt Lake City Art Barn in 2013 in a show entitled, "On the Light Side". Most of my windows, however, are in private homes throughout the valley. Only since retiring in 2005 did I begin my love affair with pottery. My works are hand-built as I enjoy finding the limits of this medium as I roll, fold and pinch it into sculptural forms. The natural textures and colors of the clay are used in my work to create organic and irregular shapes. I want my pottery to reflect the process of its creation…as if it is still emerging from the lump of clay I began with.

ARTIST BIO

Nancy Starks Biography As a Utah native, I have always enjoyed the flourishing art scene here in Salt Lake. I spent many years teaching kindergarten at Rowland Hall and then taught art classes at Madeleine Choir School. There are few arts or crafts in which I have not worked and played. Being involved with the arts community in Salt Lake City for many years, I served on the Salt Lake Arts Council Board as Vice Chair with Nancy Boscoff, Director. While there I helped to oversee planning, budget and also participated on the Gallery Committee to plan and curate upcoming shows for Finch Lane. I later became a member of the Art Access Board. This organization is committed to providing the traditionally underserved members of the Salt Lake Community with opportunities to learn and show their artistic works through workshops, mentorships and gallery shows. My involvement there was serving on various committees and as Vice Chairman of the Board.

About the library

Salt Lake City's Main Library, designed by internationally-acclaimed architect Moshe Safdie in conjunction with VCBO Architecture, opened in February 2003 and remains one of the most architecturally unique structures in Utah. This striking 240,000 square-foot structure houses more than 500,000 books and other materials, yet serves as more than just a repository of books and computers. It reflects and engages the city's imagination and aspirations. A six-story curving, walkable wall embraces the public plaza, with shops and services at ground level, reading galleries above, and a 300-seat auditorium. A multi-level reading area along the Glass Lens at the southern facade of the building looks out onto the plaza with stunning views of the city and Wasatch Mountains beyond. The Rooftop Terrace, accessible by walking the Crescent Wall or the elevators, offers a 360-degree view of the Salt Lake Valley. Spiraling fireplaces on four floors resemble a column of flame from the vantage of 200 East and 400 South. The Urban Room between the Library and the Crescent Wall is a space for all seasons, generously endowed with daylight and open to magnificent views.
