Group Show Exhibit runs from Sept 28 - Nov 8


This exhibition endeavors to provide an insight into the diverse range of Printmaking and Book Arts taking place in Utah today. The invited artists represent different areas of the state, and are at different stages in their careers: some recent graduates and others more established artists and educators.

 The show also reflects the array of techniques and approaches employed by the artists as they have created their prints, and include works in Etching, Lithography, Letterpress, Collagraphy, Relief Printing, Original Digital Prints and Book Arts. Several of the works have employed multiple mediums to create the final image.

 The techniques mentioned here are all very different; some are quite tactile, some more drawing like, and others photographic, but all can be included under the term - Printmaking. Book Arts pieces can include the above print techniques but may also include many other technical aspects of the discipline, such as book binding and papermaking to name just two.

 The works in this exhibit also reveal the personal interests of the artists, and the concepts that are of most interest to them. No theme was set as we wanted the work to indicate the personal direction of the artists, and how this is then realized in combination with a particular medium. Like any artistic discipline it is the artists’ affinity for a particular material and technique, married to a compelling idea that creates the most interesting work.

 During October 2019, The Art and Art History Dept at the University of Utah, will be hosting the 5th Rocky Mountain Printmaking Alliance Symposium, an event that will include lectures, panels, print demonstrations, portfolio events and exhibitions. This exhibition is one of several that will be on during the symposium, in galleries in downtown Salt Lake City, and on the University of Utah campus.

About the branch

NOTE: The Main Library's Rooftop Terrace is closed through 2020 for repairs and renovations.

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. The structure embraces a 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. 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.
