Inside and Out of Utah, CUAC Juried Show Connects Curators and Artists

Public reception and award ceremony: 6-9pm Friday, March 21.
Juror's awards to be announced at the opening.
Exhibition runs 3/21-4/12

CUAC offers an annual juried exhibition called Utah Ties for artists who are living in Utah, living outside of Utah, but are from Utah, or who have spent time as students or professionally in Utah. There will be awards totaling $1,000 given to juror’s selections in the show.
The purpose of the show is to help Utah artists gain exposure in Utah and also to the outside art community by being exposed to a juror who operates a commercial gallery outside of Utah.
This year’s Juror is gallerist Adam Gildar of Gildar Gallery in Denver. Gildar Gallery is one of the most progressive contemporary art galleries in Denver. Gildar is also the director of Art Plant, a residency for professional artists with the purpose of connecting curators and artists to the Denver art community.

Out of 550+ works submitted, here are the selections of our juror Adam Gildar for the 2014 Utah Ties Exhibition:
