Utah Valley University’s Woodbury Art Museum will present “Art of Our Century,” a selection of contemporary works from the Western region of the United States, June 3-Sept. 23. Running concurrently will be a selection of faculty works from UVU’s Art & Visual Communication Department for the Faculty Show 2011.

The goal of “Art of Our Century” is to engage the aesthetic dialogue of today and reflect contemporary visual imagery, ideas and experience. Juried by Erin Linder, director of exhibitions at the Kimball Art Center, the show features artists from Utah, Idaho, Oregon, New Mexico, California, Hawaii, Wyoming, Arizona, Washington, Montana and Colorado.

“The 2011 exhibition brings together multiple art forms from fiber arts to photography. The work represents our local talent, and will introduce visitors to a larger range of artists working today,” said Melissa Hempel, interim director of the Woodbury Art Museum.

Utah artists included in the exhibition are: Catherine Downing, Larry Goodin, Etsuko Kato, Nick Mendoza, Scot Olson, Natalie Raevsky, Tawni Shuler, Marcus Vincent and Taylor Wright. Out of state artists include: Nathan Barnes, Renee Couture, Fernando Delgado, Fatima Jamil Faiz, Samuel Fee, Kathleen Kastles, David Klarén, William LeGoullon, Mardi Linane, Arnon Livingstone, Carol Milne, Shawna Moore and Elizabeth Morisette.

An opening reception will be held on Tuesday, June 7, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the museum.

The Woodbury Art Museum is located in the University Mall, 575 W. University Parkway in Orem, on the second floor between Nordstrom and the Gap. Admission is free. For more information please call 801-863-4200 or go online to www.uvu.edu/museum.
