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. Exhibition held in the Main Gallery space.

Final Light: V. Douglas Snow in Retrospect - Exhibition Views
Salt Lake Art Center and the Utah Museum of Fine Arts (UMFA) are pleased to present Final Light: V. Douglas Snow in Retrospect, a joint exhibition celebrating the work of eminent Utah artist Doug Snow (1927-2009). A painter, printmaker, and professor, Doug Snow lived and worked in Utah’s red rock country for over half a century. Organized by guest curator Frank McEntire, Final Light: V. Douglas Snow in Retrospect presents defining works from Snow’s career, featuring 35 paintings from private and public collections across the West. The retrospective exhibition examines Snow’s early Abstract Expressionist-inspired period from the 1950s, as well as later works from the last three decades of his life, which meld abstraction with realism to express his passion for Utah’s southern desert. Exhibition held in the Street Gallery Space.
This exhibit is a collection of prints from Flatbed Press by various artist. Printmaking workshops such as Flatbed are said to have a "personality." From Listening to artists' responses to their work here, their personality seems to consist of two traits. On the personal level,openness and friendliness prevail, with Katherine's down-home style setting the tone. On the aesthetic level, they became known early on for their "Texas Grit" look, exemplified by the editions of artists like James Surls, Terry Allen, and Frank X. Tolbert. As they expanded their range of artists, the gritty look became complicated by prints that were not "Texas Raw," but simply bold in execution, or, large in scale. Exhibition held in the Main Gallery space.
