Land Beyond Literal: Royden Card
On December 16th Art Conversation at 7pm features Art Historian, Deborah Reeder, Curator of the St. George Art Museum on the early history of abstract and non-representational art. She will be joined by Royden Card who will discuss his exhibit, Land Beyond Literal.
The Legacy Gallery features, Land Beyond Literal, with paintings by Royden Card of Virgin, UT. His best known work consists of recognizable landscape forms remade and recreated into a new abstracted land of vibrant color. Though Card is less well known for his fine series of woodcuts of Zion National Park, in addition to a sequence of paintings that explore architectural doorways with raking angles in rich colors, they are both impressive series of paintings.
