  • DEVORAH SPERBER: THREADS OF PERCEPTION

    ABOUTDevorah Sperber was born in 1961 and raised in Detroit, Michigan until the age of ten, when she moved to Denver, Colorado. From 1979 to 1981, she attended the Art Institute of Colorado, Denver, and in 1987, she received her BA from Regis University, Colorado. Shortly after graduation, Sperber was asked to in-clude her figurative stone sculptures and related bronze castings in a national exhibition on the Holocaust victim Anne Frank, which helped in the emergence of her career.

    Devorah Sperber has exhibited in numerous institutions across the United States, including Mass MoCA, North Adams, Massachusetts (2008); the Robert Hull Fleming Museum, University of Vermont, Burlington (2007); the Montclair Art Museum, New Jersey (2004). In 2007, she had a one-person exhibition, The Eye of the Artist: The Work of Devorah Sperber, at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York.

    EXHIBITNew York artist Devorah Sperber combines commonplace materials with simple optical devices to investi-gate the connections between art, perception and technology. Her works addresses the complex relation-

    ship between the way we think we see and the way the brain actually processes images. Her most recent works examines famous paintings from art history. "I like to explore the science of what we see, so I

    chose these paintings specifically for their historical and scientific merit," says Sperber. "Artists were be-ginning to paint three-quarter profiles where the eyes are centered left to right, but the brain is hardwired

    to recognize or create symmetry. Vermeer used some kind of lens or camera obscura, evidenced by the rounded slightly distorted face in The Girl with the Pearl Earring, and in Da Vinci's Last Supper, Jesus'

    right eye is the vanishing point of the whole painting." These details bring art lovers and scientists to-gether in fully engaged conversation.

    The Kimball is free and open to the public year-round, furthering access to the visual arts for the commu-nity. While schools face increasing challenges in the area of art education, the Kimball stands as a bright spot for visual arts education. Our educational outreach packages and school tours preserve the value of visual arts education. The art center also offers classes for children and adults while giving members ac-cess to our ceramics, photography and painting studios.

    The Kimball Art Center is the cultural hub of Park City. In addition to the Annual Park City Kimball Arts Festival and the Kimball Art Auction & Gala we host many special events throughout the year, so come out to the Kimball and lets make some art!

  • EMILY KING: SNOW DRIVEN

    ABOUTCreation is a huge part of Emilys life. The decision to major in art was an easy one, narrowing her focus

    proved to be the difficult part. Emily has always loved capturing the human form no matter the medium.

    Forms simplified and unique color palettes established themselves early in her aesthetics. Drawing and

    color are the two most significant elements in Emilys work. She has a unique way of scaling things down

    to their most simple form yet in an incredibly descriptive way. Emily draws upon the human experience for

    inspiration. Her wish as an artist is to be a force for good. Family is central to her, she uniquely captures

    those moments of happiness that secure our bonds to one another and keep us moving forward.

    Emily grew up in Salt Lake City, UT and received her BFA from The University of Utah in 2004 with an

    emphasis in painting / drawing. Emily has lived in both Tulsa, Oklahoma and Malibu, California. She now

    resides in Kaysville, Utah with her husband Joshua and small children Esmae(5) and Abram(2)

    EXHIBITIn her latest series, Emily King focuses on Park Citys appeal to both its inhabitants and visitors - snow. Her simplified color forms cut from paper capture the many different winter scenes and sports of this

    popular resort community.

  • AMY PRUZAN: REFLECTIONS

    ABOUTAmy Pruzan works in a variety of media, but maintains a strong focus on glass and photography. She earned her B.F.A degree, Magna Cum Laude, from Cornish College of the Arts in 2006, with triple majors in sculpture, print, and photography. Pruzan has studied at institutions such as Alexander Muss in Israel, Pilchuck Glass School, and Pratt Fine Arts Center.

Recently this Seattle Native has been honored with both the Corning award nomination form Pilchuck Glass Schools, and the George Tsu-takawa Scholarship from Pratt Fine Arts Center.

    EXHIBITSeattle based artist Amy Pruzans work combines glass, metal and photography. Her photographic im-ages are both literal and metaphorical representations of memory. The glass elements of her pieces func-

    tion as lenses through which memories are reflected or distorted, addressing questions of what happens t
