"Delicious" is perhaps the best way to describe the art of one of Utah’s “Most Honored Artists” Wayne Thiebaud. Whether it is the delectable desserts of his paintings or his tactile painting surfaces, to see his work is a multi-sensory experience. The very paint on the canvas looks as edible as the cakes he paints. Devoted followers and novices of Thiebaud’s work will be able to experience a retrospective of his paintings when the exhibition Wayne Thiebaud: 70 Years of Painting is at the Springville Museum of Art in Springville, Utah from 28 March through 27 July 2008. This exhibition of 84 oil paintings and drawings is free and open to the public. A conversation with the artist and book and poster signing will be held Saturday, March 29th. Overflow seating tickets are still available. Visit the website for more information.

UP: Masterworks of Victorian Art from the Collection of John H. Schaeffer, an exhibition of British works from the Victorian period from the private collection of Australian businessman and entrepreneur John H. Schaeffer. The exhibition will consist of paintings, sculpture and works on paper by the luminaries of Victorian art including, William Holman Hunt, Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John William Waterhouse and George Frederic Watts. Many of these pieces have never been shown before in the United States. "Beyond that, these works offer a window into an era of British history that is important to the development of our own history and culture. In this historical moment — the beginning of the industrial world — artists are trying to find a way to deal with the newness and complexities of modern life.” says Museum of Art Curator Paul Anderson. The works in the exhibition will be grouped into five thematic categories: religious works, paintings depicting mythology, literature and history, paintings of everyday life, paintings by the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, and works by other European artists. Through August 16.

UPCOMING: Dismantling Geneva Steel: Photographs by Chris Dunker March 14 through November 1. For three years Utah artist Chris Dunker documented the dismantling of the Geneva Steel Works in Vineyard, Utah, through the lens of a large-format camera. His photographs utilize color, light and scale to explore the formal elements of the vacant industrial structures and to articulate a sense of loss and morning for an industry that profoundly shaped the life of Utah County throughout the twentieth century (see page 1).
