FARMINGTON — It’s a chance to learn more about art and the people who help make it possible.
The Bountiful/Davis Art Center will be holding a discussion on Kaysville artist LeConte Stewart tonight, March 28, at 5:30 p.m. at the Farmington location.
Immediately following that will be a book signing of “LeConte Stewart Masterworks.”
“It’s a beautiful book, with quite a few plates in it,” said BDAC Executive Director Emma Dugal.
At 7 p.m., the art center will hold its annual meeting and present 2013 Foundation Awards. The awards honor those who support the arts in the community.
The LeConte Stewart presentation will feature three of the contributing authors to the book: Donna Poulton, James Poulton and Robert Davis. Vern Swanson, another author, may also make an appearance.
The presentation will draw material from the book, which discusses the life of the artist as well as his work.
Copies of the coffee table-sized book are $75 each, and are available in the BDAC gift shop.
Later, the art center will present Foundation Awards.
This year’s “Outstanding Support from an Individual” award will go to Davis County Commissioner Louenda Downs. Downs has been a driving force behind the county’s recent decision to begin its own permanent art collection.
The art center is located at 28 E. State St. in Farmington, on the second floor of the old courthouse. Use the south entrance.
