Since 1943 the Palette Club of Ogden has continued to advance community interest in art and to encourage local artists. There are over 90 members of the club from Davis, Weber, Morgan and Box Elder Counties. The club members enjoy meeting in various northern Utah places for seasonal plein-air painting. Some exhibits are organized by membership categories: Master, Advanced, Intermediate and Beginner. The Club meets twice each month in South Ogden for presentations and critique sessions.

Anthony Lott currently teaches at Utah State University – College of Eastern Utah. He has also taught at the Kimball Art Center, University of Montana (where he earned a MFA) and Wasatch Academy. His work is expressive and interpretive. He works mainly in oils and acrylics.
Huitzilopochtli, oil on canvas –
Alessandra Sulpy holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from Indiana University. She is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor of Art at Southern Utah University.

Mental Hygiene, oil on canvas-
As father and son metal sculptors, both enjoy working with a combination of steel and stainless steel. Though both use the same materials and processes, their styles are noticeably different. Dan enjoys taking what is normally rigid and straight steel and forming it into smooth flowing lines and shapes. Joshua likes working with geometric lines and shapes.
