Volume X THE Issue VIII OGDEN VALLEY NEWS Page 5 August 1, 2004 Eccles Community Art Center It’s Not Too Announces Award Winners The Eccles Community Art Center is pleased to announce the awards given in association with its 30th Annual Statewide Competition. This annual competition is open to all artists residing in Utah in all media except photography. This is truly a Statewide Competition with works received from artists living in Cedar City, Santaquin, Vernal, Logan, Brigham City, Heber City, Lehi, Springville, Provo, Orem as well Salt Lake City, Ogden and surrounding communities. Artwork accepted is on display in the Art Center’s Main Gallery through August 28, 2004. The competition was successful in receiving 208 entries from 123 Utah artists. The juror, Marin R. Hyde, Professor of Fine Arts, Utah State University chose to include 84 objects of art in the exhibition. Awards are as follows: PURCHASE AWARD Water Cycle by Robert DeGroff, Logan Can I Play? by Suzie Wood, Huntsville Ogden Cabbages by Diana Edvalson, Ogden Salt Lake Farmington FIRST PLACE PLACE Inner Strength by Meri Decaria, Ogden PLACE Abiquie Remembered by Nancy Mc Lea, Ogden HONORABLE MENTIONS Peaches & Petunia by C.H. Bradford, Brigham City Holly by Paul Butler, Ogden Room to Bloom by Beverly Child, Ogden Trees Near 12th Street by Lynn by Theresa Otteson, Juror, Marion R. Hyde stated “There is little reason to commend the artist for the subject matter selected. We are perfectly capable of seeing the subject without benefit of the artist. The subject existed before the artist and will exist after the artist and without the artist. Quality art exists through the order which the artist conceives. In a way, the subject becomes an excuse for structuring the picture plane with the orchestration of visually expressive elements. In the process of executing the idea, the artist attempts to make all parts of the work mutually interactive and interrelated, containing nothing that is necessary or distracting. The images selected for this exhibition focus on bringing visual order to the image through the process of sequencing a language of space, shape, color, rhythm, ratio, and geometry with the intent of establishing relationships that achieve a visually expressive unity. Some works selected employ subject matter (representational or abstract), some are nonobjective. All the works focus on developing a unique, personal vision based on ordering a visual vocabulary.” After the Statewide exhibition, the Purchase Awards will remain at the Art Center for exhibition in the center’s permanent collection, and for use in their docent program Art To Go, which takes art in to local Elementary Schools. Curator of Education, Donna Shively is excited to have some new works to include in her docent packets. The art center’s docents took seven packets to 19 school reaching over 2000 students during the 2003 - 2004 school year.
