Egg Carving Exhibit @ UCCC (WVC: March 31 - June 23)

Two-time “Best of Utah” Award Winning Eggshell Carver Invited to Display Works in Bulgaria

Other Pieces Showcased at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center

The UCCC proudly presents an art display of uniquely designed and intricately hand carved eggshells of all types. Local artist Brian Baity creates works of art from quail eggs to ostrich eggs, many winning awards throughout the state and more. Brian has recently been invited by Bulgarian officials to display his works at two prominent museums over the Easter holiday.

Over the last few years carving specialist Brian Baity has created many fine works of art, including a carved ostrich egg commemorating the 150th anniversary of Vermillion, South Dakota, now on permanent display in Vermillion’s City Hall. In 2009 West Valley City, Utah commissioned Brian to carve a special gift for Sister City Boca del Rio, Vera Cruz, Mexico. Brian then created a multiple piece display which is part of the tenth year celebration of the Lan Su Yuan Chinese Garden in Portland, Oregon. In both 2009 and 2010 Brian received awards for his carvings from Utah’s prestigious “Best of State” program.

Now, by special invitation, Brian will visit Bulgaria for next 3 months showcasing his works at the Municipal Historical Museum in Velingrad, and at the Institute of Ethnology and Folklore in Sofia, Bulgaria, celebrating Bulgarian Culture and Education Day.

Witness the works of one of Utah’s most celebrated artists at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center.
