Local artists are exhibiting their work in “Artists of Cache Valley” opening July 22 in the Tippetts Exhibit Hall of the Chase Fine Arts Center at Utah State University.

 

“This exhibition allows the faculty, staff and students of USU to see work by some of the many strong visual artists living and working in Cache Valley,” said Laura Gelfand, head of the Department of Art and Design. “This also creates an opportunity for these artists to connect with Utah State and the department in a new way.”

 

The exhibit features the work of local artists, including Joe Alleman, Michael Bingham, Colleen Howe Bleinberg, Heather Campbell, Jerry Fuhriman, Kristi Grussendorf, Mike Malm, Jim Morgan and Debra Teare.

 

“There’s going to be some neat work exhibited knowing the range of talent and who some of the other artists are,” said Alleman, who graduated from USU in 2000 with a bachelor of fine arts degree. “I think it’s neat to have a chance to do something with the strong local talent that is here.”

 

Each artist has submitted three to five works for display, ranging from oil and water color paintings to mixed media, three-dimensional wall hangings and sculptures. Gelfand is the juror for the show and will choose an artwork to receive an award to be presented by Craig Jessop, dean of the CCA, at a reception Aug. 9.

 

The “Artists of Cache Valley” exhibit can be seen July 22 through Aug. 23 in the Tippetts Exhibit Hall, open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.- 4 p.m.

 

A public reception is Friday, Aug. 9, at 5 p.m.

 

Both the exhibit and the reception are free and open to the public. Information on the exhibit is online (arts.usu.edu) or call the Caine College of the Arts box office 435-797-8022.
