2015 All-State High School Art Show
Stewart Library, Lower and Middle Levels (April 2 - 30, 2015)
This statewide high school art competition and exhibit, sponsored annually by the Springville Museum of Art, provides a professional forum for students to display their best work. For many high school students, the exhibit is their first taste of artistic competition and prepares them for future competitions they may encounter. Beyond this recognition and experience, selected Senior Class exhibitors receive scholarships awarded by the art schools of Utah colleges and universities. The works selected for the traveling exhibition illustrate the exceptional talent, diversity, originality, and creativity of Utah’s young visual artists. The exhibition is also a tribute to the art teachers in Utah’s high schools who inspire, direct and refine the work of these artists.
Weber State University Student Artwork, Ceramics Department
Stewart Library, Middle Level (Ongoing)
Five display cases filled with an array of ceramic objects on view were created by Weber State University students who were enrolled in one of the many upper level ceramics courses offered here. They range from class assignments to proposal-based projects. Many forming techniques that encompass coil and slab construction to the use of a pottery wheel are exemplified here. Accompanying these various forming techniques are numerous surfacing solutions. They range from high temperature gas kiln reduction glaze firing to low fire electric kiln processes. In our program, students learn to decorate and surface their objects through various processes and techniques that include slips, sigillatas, stains, and glazes. With a breadth of skillsets and knowledge, each student begins to develop their own artistic voice, or identity. This exhibit is a sampling of those individuals, and their talents.

Photographs by Kevin Mikkelsen
Stewart Library, Middle Level (Ongoing Exhibit)
Kevin Mikkelsen resides in North Ogden, Utah right at the base of the Wasatch Range. “Besides being a beautiful place to live, North Ogden is the perfect jumping off point in which to reach one of 7 National Parks, all within a 5 hour drive time. As time passes, and new things are seen, more miles are traveled, and more mountains climbed, that love progressively deepens and has become an inspiration in his photographic work. Capturing images through today’s digital and film technology has allowed Kevin to express that inspiration in the form of scenic landscapes and wildlife fine art prints.” We are pleased to have the opportunity to show 13 of Kevin’s beautiful images in the library, his complete works may be viewed by going to: PhotographyOutdoors.com
