THE NEW BIBLE OF UTAH FINE ART
Well, actually, it's the new Dictionary of Utah Fine Artists! First issued in 1965 as a modest paperback, this time around the dictionary has been upgraded to an enormous coffee table art book. Vern Swanson, Donna Poulton, Angela Swanson Jones, and Micah J. Christensen have created the definitive art book for lovers of Utah art. Vern Swanson and his team have endeavored and succeeded in being exceptionally thorough in their selection, and this new roundup features more women, minority, outsider artists and non-traditional art than has ever been assembled before.
The Dictionary of Utah Fine Artists weighs in as the best and most complete work on three centuries of Utah artists. Perhaps they should have titled it the BIBLE of Utah Art, instead of dictionary!
Ken Sanders Rare Books will be holding a reception and book signing for Vern Swanson, Donna Poulton, their co-authors, and some of the artists included in the book!
