Southern Utah University, Cedar City, Utah: The exploration of combining diverse, two-dimensional media is a staple of artist Rebecca Fogg. As a Zion National Park Artist-in-Residence and the featured artist at SUU’s Department of Art & Design’s weekly series, Art Insights, Fogg will be sharing her experiences and work with students. The presentation will take place in Section JK of SUU’s Centrum Arena on Thursday, November 7, 2013, at 7pm. Admission is free and the general public is invited to attend.
Rebecca Fogg lives in the San Francisco Bay area, and has been featured in numerous solo exhibitions along the California coast over the past 30 years. She studied at Rhode Island School of Design and Rochester Institute of Technology, and has been professionally involved with fine and graphic arts since 1972. Rebecca’s expertise includes etching, painting, photography, and computer graphics. Much of her work is inspired by the flowing forms of water. She uses nature’s patterns to suggest familiarity juxtaposed with a fluidly abstract sensitivity. Fogg’s images deftly evoke both the ethereal and tangible qualities of our world.
The Zion National Park Artist-in-Residence program offers professional artists the opportunity to live and work in the majestic desert environment of southern Utah. The works completed under this program will contribute to the public understanding and appreciation of Zion National Park and reflect the National Park Service’s mission to the preservation and protection of the park’s cultural and natural resources.
Art Insights is a weekly program hosted during the fall and spring semesters by SUU’s Art and Design faculty. Students and community members meet to experience presentations and discussions by visiting artists and art educators from around the nation who share their work and insights and attend gallery openings. Admission is free, and the general public is invited to attend.
This Art Insights presentation is a wonderful opportunity for the Southern Utah community to learn from an artist with more than 30 years of successful experience in a variety of mediums.
