Bountiful/Davis Art Center to Host Moving Sale, January 11-12, 9am -4pm
Bountiful, Utah, December 31, 2012–As Bountiful/Davis Art Center prepares for the move to Farmington, we are finding that we have several items that we cannot move as the space is smaller than what we currently occupy. Therefore, BDAC will host a ‘MOVING SALE’ on January 11-12 from 9am-4pm. Some of the items available are desks, chairs, display cases, tables, etc all at rock-bottom prices. There will also be some art for sale at deeply discounted prices. The public is welcome to join us at 745 So. Main Street for this sale.
BDAC will be at its temporary location at the Davis County Memorial Courthouse starting in mid January. The address is 28 East State Street in Farmington, located on the 2nd floor of the building. Staff Members and volunteers including the Bountiful Lions Club have been busy painting the new space in preparation for the move.
“Scott Durrant, BDAC Board Member and Designer, has chosen a rich palette of colors inspired by a LeConte Stewart painting. These colors include yellows, greens, oranges, purples and blues. The offices, gift shop, reception area and gallery spaces of BDAC will be very colorful and aesthetically pleasing. The color scheme itself is a work of art and I’m sure people will want to stop by just to see the paint on the walls in addition to the exhibits,” says BDAC Director, Emma J. Dugal.
It will take approximately one month to prepare the space for BDAC to be fully operational.
The first exhibit will be the Annual Statewide Competition featuring professional artists living in Utah. It begins on February 22. Artists may bring entries from February 4-9 from 10am-5pm.
Classes will begin in February starting on February 4. Winter classes continue through March though the Figure Painting class is ongoing.
Bountiful/Davis Art Center has been serving the community with quality arts programs since 1974. Its mission is to engage the community in quality artistic and cultural program, provide educational experiences and encourage the growth and expression of art.
BDAC in grateful for all the support received while at this location and looks forward to meeting new friends while in the temporary location. The current building will be torn down and a new Bountiful City Hall will be built in its place. Then the current City Hall will be renovated for the Art Center, the History Center and the Joy Foundation. It is expected to take about 2 ½ years.
