Including over forty artists, this exhibit represents a cross-section of a decade at Brigham Young University’s Art Department from the early nineties into the 21st century. Curator Jared Clark explains, "Committing to one genre or medium as an art student is a thing of the past. It can be argued the artists in this show were on the threshold of this paradigm shift in their formative years and felt both the pressure to commit to a way of working (and, therefore, to an identity) and the contrasting new freedom blossoming to shed labels and expectations.”

Installation Photo

Mélange presents a snapshot of work from the State of Utah Fine Art Collection. It explores the curious, the legendary, the unknown, and the stories behind an eclectic variety of works. When brought together, the range of paintings, prints, sculptures, and mixed media works, and their wide focus of subject — goblins, political figures, artistic strife, the everyday, metaphorical monsters, and curious reproductions — expose the varied and thorough assortment of works included in the 114 years of the Fine Art Collection’s history.

Featuring six new and re-curated exhibitions, this program provides access to an array of visual arts, nurtures the understanding of diverse art forms and cultures, promotes creativity and encourages cultural activities in local communities. Our exhibits are available to schools, colleges, museums, libraries and cultural centers throughout the entire State. 

This work by Josh Winegar was recently selected by the acquisitions committee for purchase into the State Fine Art Collection. Winegar says, "The base images for the Still Life Series are found photographs originally created with the intent of documenting and memorializing various hunting excursions. After the process of re-capturing and re-printing the photographs, I then paint and draw on the images recontextualizing them in order to explore... the dichotomies of violence & beauty, life & death, and hope & despair. Although this work is cloaked in animal imagery, it is meant to speak more about human than animal nature. It is my hope that they become a more universal allegory for our uncomfortable relationship with nature, as well as relationships with each other and ourselves."


As the title suggests, this serigraph print by Ada Irvine is a colorful and cheerful representation of a cityscape. Irvine enjoyed working in printmaking and serigraphy because she liked the bright saturated colors the medium affords. Irvine was trained and influenced by Anna Campbell Bliss, another artist included in the State Fine Art Collection.
