Southern Utah University, Cedar City, Utah: Recipient of the Western Heritage Award from the Cowboy Hall of Fame for Scriptwriting and a literary fellowship from the National Endowment of the Arts, Teresa Jordan captures the American west in both image and word. As part of SUU's Department of Art and Design’s weekly lecture series Art Insights, Teresa will present on her “open road’ experiences Thursday, March 27, 2014. The lecture begins at 7pm in Gilbert Great Hall, in the Hunter Conference Center. Admission is free and the general public is encouraged to attend.
Teresa Jordan was raised on a fourth generation cattle ranch in southeast Wyoming. As an artist and author she draws inspiration from animals and the natural world. Represented by the Phillips Gallery in Salt Lake City, she has exhibited in one-woman and group shows in several Western states. Her books include the memoir Riding the White Horse Home and two illustrated journals, Apprentice to Place: Field Notes from Yosemite and Raging River, Quiet Mind: Field Notes from the Grand Canyon. With her husband, Hal Cannon, she created the series “The Open Road” about the Outback West for the public radio show The Savvy Traveler. Her next book, The Year of Living Virtuously, Weekends Off, inspired by Benjamin Franklin’s 13 virtues and the seven deadly sins, will be released by Counterpoint Press in 2014 and will include her artwork. She now lives in southern Utah, near Zion National Park."
