What bugs you? Brigham City arts
center gives awards to artists for telling
March 31, 2009 | BRIGHAM CITY -- A meager crowd didn't
hinder lively performances by local storytellers at
the Brigham City Fine Arts Center's second annual Art-Tell
The Art-Tell is an art show and storytelling event
with all art entries needing to be tied into the show's
theme. This year's theme was "What Bugs Me."
The art show and storytelling happen simultaneously
with storytellers upstairs and the art show downstairs.
The Art-Tell featured 16 storytellers from Brigham
City and across Utah, including professional storytellers
Karl Behling and Rachel Hedman.
Amber Rust, chair of the Fine Arts Center Board, announced
the winners of the art show, with Best of Show going
to Coleen Bradford for her mixed-media piece titled
Hopeless. Susan Neidert, director at the Fine
Arts Center, said Bradford had paintings on display
at Idle Isle Café and she always does scenery, "so
this is a little different."
"I just let my true self come out," Bradford said.
Next year's theme for the Art-Tell will be "Up
a Tree," Rust said. She said this year the art
show's entries were down "by about half of what
we had last year."
"Get your friends to enter," Rust said. "I want to
see three times this (next year)."
