“Out of Print” represents 25 of Utah’s finest professional artists using the medium of printmaking to create lithographic, intaglio, and relief prints. Printmaking is a fine art using varied techniques and materials to produce multiple “original” works of art. Each piece is considered an original, since it is not a reproduction of another work of art, and is technically known as an impression. Works printed from a single plate create an edition; most are signed and numbered to form a limited edition.
The exhibit artists represent a breadth of schools, ranging from the super-realism of Edie Roberson to the Mormon Art and Belief movement of Doug Himes. Lee Deffenbach and Tony Smith studied at the Arts Students League in New York City, and Deffenbach studied in Florence on a Fulbright scholarship. Wulf Eric Barsch received the Prix de Rome from the American Academy in Rome in 1975. The work of Paul H. Davis has been featured at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C. and the Amerika Haus in Hamburg, Germany. Portrayed in a Life magazine article as a prominent American artist, Doug Snow’s work hangs in collections throughout the United States, including those of the Museums of Modern Art in New York and San Francisco.
