November Happenings at Kimball Art Center

 
November 2016
WHAT'S HAPPENING
Kimball Art Center inspires and connects through art. 
Dear Valued Members & Supporters, 
I am proud to announce that we have a new website! We're thrilled to showcase the continued, upward trajectory of the Kimball and this site is just so representative of all that we do. Some highlights include the search and sorting options within the class catalog, our new Art Starts Here™ video, upcoming gallery exhibitions, an enhanced membership focus and a live social media feed. Plus, the new site is just as exciting on your mobile device! I welcome you to visit the new site, share your photos with us via #artstartshere and take advantage of Fall at the Kimball! 

This month is not only an exciting month for us but also for all of Park City as Friday is the annual Live PC Give PC day of giving. Please consider donating to our free exhibitions and educational school tours on November 4th for Live PC Give PC, an extraordinary day to support the organizations that make Park City special. Your support keeps our admission free year-round.

Art Starts Here! 
In gratitude, 
Robin Marrouche
Executive Director 
Live PC Give PC
Support the Kimball Art Center and the Park City community 
Friday, November 4 
Mark your calendar for November 4th to make a donation to support the Kimball Art Center during the annual Live PC GivePC campaign, hosted by Park City Community Foundation. With your contributions to the Kimball you make art happen for the 85,000+ people served each year. Your gift provides free world-class exhibitions to our community and arts education to our young people through partnerships with Utah K-12 schools. You make it possible for the Kimball to host one of the best arts festivals each year that provides nearly $20 million in economic impact to the state of Utah. To strengthen your gift, the Kimball Art Center Board of Directors will match the first $10,000 - meaning your donation will go twice as far! 
Your contribution matters. Art matters. Art Starts Here™
Thank you for your support.

This workshop is for the artist who wants to continue a conversation with encaustics, and begin an exploration of combining paper with beeswax in countless ways.

Deadline to sign up is Wednesday, November 2nd.  Register here.
Featured Teacher: Nancy Vorm 
Nancy Vorm, an Indiana native, has a BFA in Painting and Drawing from the University of Utah. Originally a weaver, Nancy served as a member of the Duneland Weaver's Guild in Northwest Indiana, before relocating to the Wasatch Front. Vorm's exploration of surface and materials led her to discover an affinity for encaustic - painting with melted beeswax - which has opened up new channels of expression. She is a member of the Surface Design Organization and the International Encaustic Arts. Vorm currently resides and works full time as a studio artist and is represented by Philips Gallery in Salt Lake City, Utah. For more about Nancy Vorm, visit her website

Johnson, Ph.D., and illustrator, Alexa Kanarowski, of The Gnome in Your Home for a book signing tonight! Both are Park City residents and have a passion for changing the world through kindness. Alexa is an alumna of the Kimball Art Center's Young Artists' Academy and is currently a high school student. Susan is a university professor whose research and teaching focuses on meeting the needs of young children with disabilities and their families. Together they created The Gnome in Your Home. This book seeks to help readers discover the impact of small acts of kindness and that kindness does not require magic but instead can be spread by anyone.

Urban Arts Gallery, 137 S. Rio Grande Salt Lake City, UT
Jimmi Toro's Art-Music-Video exhibit at the Urban Art Gallery features new songs, music videos and works that combine the creative emotions of vision, sound and movement. One part of the multi-faceted show, Soul, features work from the Kimball Art Center's Young Artists' Academy (YAA). Jimmi worked with the YAA to go through the process of creating work for an exhibit. They all created art around the idea of a face with the eyes obscured, and participated in the accompanying film and music recording.
