FARMINGTON - A paintbrush isn’t the only way to conjure art into life.
The Bountiful/Davis Art Center is hoping to explore some of those other mediums as they select exhibits for 2014. Applications for those looking to show their work next year are due Nov. 8, and the art center is hoping to hear from sculptors, photographers, textile artists and those who work in a variety of other mediums.
“We do a lot of painting exhibits,” said Hillary Timmons, marketing and development manager for the art center. “We wanted to branch out.”
That doesn’t mean, however, that the art center will be abandoning painters. One of the exhibits they’re considering for next year is another major landscape exhibit, similar to their current one focusing on northern Utah. Next year’s exhibit, however, will likely expand to include the entire state.
“Nothing has been finalized as of yet,” said BDAC Executive Director Emma Dugal. “But we know that landscape art is very popular, and we are looking at several possibilities.”
The art center is also looking for individual artists who would like their work to be featured in small exhibits at CenterPoint Legacy Theatre.
“As with the other exhibits, artists will be chosen on artistic merit,” said Dugal. “It would be fun if the art complimented the theme of the current play, but that is not a steadfast criteria.”
Artist applications are available online at bdac.org/?p=528. The site also includes guidelines and eligibility information.
