New Narrative: Warhol, Stella, Marden, Fitzpatrick
The exhibition features printmaking by four American masters. The exhibition has been made possible through the generosity of Chicago based Art Enterprises Ltd., which previously toured the exhibit under the slightly different title, "A New Narrative: Marden, Fitszpatrick, Stella, Warhol." The work in this exhibit is the same, but the curatorial renaming is a matter of popular realignment. Tweaking the title notwithstanding, the real purpose of the exhibition is the focus up on the printmaking activity of these four major American artists. The printmaking medium itself offers artists the ability to produce a series of prints as an edition. Images closely related as to subject often suggest narrative-like sequences. These prints stand alone, outside of literature, and yet literature and its mate, narrative, do play a significant conceptual role.

Not Just Another Pretty Face (2009)
Modeled after a dynamic program developed by the Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago, Not Just Another Pretty Face encourages a new, diverse group of people to envision themselves as patrons of contemporary art, while cultivating lasting relationships between artists and patrons. As part of the NJPAF program, patrons can meet artists, visit their studios, follow their careers and garner inspiration from their creative insights, ideas and art-making processes. It is through this personal relationship that Not Just Another Pretty Face encourages active and enthusiastic patronage. Artists who received commissions worked collaboratively with patrons. While the program title, Not Just Another Pretty Face, implies portraiture as the primary subject, artists and patrons were encouraged to consider traditional representation as well as artworks that push past conventional forms. And in this project, participants created new relationships that required both artists and patrons to consider how art could become a personal and shared vision.

Of the Siren and The Sky: Curated By Triple Candie
Of the Siren and the Sky is the first proper museum exhibition on the career of Siren Bliss, a Salt Lake City native who, by his own account, has made more than 80,000 artworks. Curated by Triple Candie, the presentation includes recreations of the artist’s drawings and sculptures, posters containing statements by him, and photographs and objects related to his life story. An enigma to anyone but his closest associates, Siren Bliss has eschewed all involvement with the mainstream contemporary art world. In fact, his career choices could be viewed as a satirization of the art system and its star-making machinery. Following a brief collaboration with the artist Paul McCarthy in the late 1960s and a decade in Los Angeles, Bliss became a nomadic mystic who has operated under multiple identities, traded his art on the barter system, and operated his own itinerant museum. By 1997, his work was in more corporate collections than any other artist. The Security and Exchange Commission (S.E.C.) estimated the value of this work in excess of $250 million. This exhibition provides a glimpse of an epic career, focusing primarily on work made by the artist during stints in Salt Lake City by addressing a series of 750 sculptures he made, under the nom de guerre Sky Jones, with the homeless in 1992-93 as part of a recycling project. Also included is a visit to the Bankers Art Museum, which he founded for his work in 1988 and operated under the pseudonyms Joseph Banker, Richard S. Dickens, and Art Carter; as well as thousands of drawings Bliss made in 2003 while operating the BAM Drawing Club. Exhibition held in the New Genres Gallery space., Digital image files converted from Raw file format to TIFF using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Bridge.
