PRICE, Utah–The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Price Field Office invites the public to a reception highlighting the artwork and contributions of artists in the Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry Artists-in-Residence Program. This free public event will be held on Thursday, Dec. 8, 2016, from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Prehistoric Museum in Price, Utah. Light refreshments will be provided.
BLM welcomes Jason Huntzinger as the 2017 Artist-in-Residence at the Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry. Originally from Duluth, Minnesota, Jason now lives here, joining the many artists who call Helper, Utah, home. Jason is an award winning photographer and adjunct professor of art at Utah State University Eastern. His unique approach to photography is rooted in the philosophy that “most of the narrative moves outside the frame, which makes the mystery.” Jason’s work has focused on the ghost towns of the intermountain West as well as the raw geological forms of eastern Utah. On display at the reception will be some of his preliminary interactions with the dramatic and colorful badlands visible at the Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry.
The reception is to also honor and thank Anne Kaferle and Charles Callis, the 2016 Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry Artists-In-Residence. Inspired by the unique geology found near the Quarry, both abstract landscape painters will have the fruits of their yearlong residency on display.
BLM thanks the Utah State University Eastern Prehistoric Museum for hosting the event. The museum is located at 155 East Main Street, Price Utah.
