NOVEMBER 3, 2011

Southern Utah University, Cedar City, Utah: Renowned for capturing the landscapes of the northern plains, photographer Chuck Kimmerle has been chosen as a Zion Artist-in-Residence. He will display his art and discuss his creative process as a part of the SUU’s Art and Design’s weekly lecture series Art Insights, on Thursday, November 3, 2011. The lecture begins at 7:00 pm at SUU’s Sterling Church Auditorium in the Sharwan Smith Center. Admission is free and the general public is encouraged to attend.
Chuck Kimmerle, born and raised in Minnesota, has been a photographer for more than 20 years. His career began as a photojournalist working at newspapers in Minnesota, Pennsylvania and North Dakota, followed by his current position as staff photographer at the University of North Dakota, a position he has held since 2000.During this career span, his work has been recognized both locally and nationally. While a photojournalist he was named photographer of year in both Minnesota and in North Dakota. He, along with fellow photo staff members at the Grand Forks Herald, was honored as a finalist for the spot news Pulitzer Prize in 1998 and, as a university photographer, was named university photographer of the year four times in five years. His personal work, black and white landscapes of the northern plains, is an almost 180-turnabout from that produced by his day job. These landscapes, devoid of people but not their presence, has been well received both within and outside of the photographic community. This work has been published in international photographic periodicals as Lenswork, B&W, and Shutterbug. His most recent exhibition, “The Unapologetic Landscape,” has been touring for more than year.
The Zion Artist-in-Residence program offers professional artists the opportunity to live and work in the majestic splendor of Zion National Park. The works completed under this program will contribute to the public understanding and appreciation of Zion National Park. It is the park’s hope that works produced during this time will characterize Zion for present and future generations and offer park visitors and the general public the opportunity to see America’s heritage through the creative vision of contributing artists.

Art Insights is a weekly program hosted during the fall and spring semesters by SUU’s Art and Design faculty. Students and community members meet weekly to experience presentations and discussions by visiting artists and art educators from around the nation who share their work and insights and attend gallery openings. Admission is free, and the general public is invited to attend.
