Annual Spring Banquet - The Friends...

Crimson View -- Olpin Student Union Building
University of Utah Campus
200 Central Campus Drive
Tuesday, April 22, 2014, 6pm

The Friends of the J. Willard Marriott Library cordially invite you to attend the Annual Spring Banquet on Tuesday, April 22, 2014.

We are pleased to present Donna Poulton as our speaker, coauthor of the Masterworks of LeConte Stewart.

In Poulton’s recently published book, LeConte Stewart Masterworks (Gibbs Smith, 2013), coauthored with James L. Poulton and Vern Swanson, she traces the works of Utah artist LeConte Stewart (1891–1990) who created images of Utah and the West. His farms, deserts, and urban landscapes capture a region and an era. Influenced by John Carlson, Maynard Dixon, and Edward Hopper, Stewart is a valued and important voice in this period of American art. Stewart spent much of his early life in the shadows of the iconic natural splendors of southern Utah. But it was small- town life in Davis County and the surrounding farms and urban landscapes that captured his imagination. Though he studied with a number of important American artists, he internalized the technique and philosophy of John Carlson. He later passed this on to his students while he was chair of the Art Department at the University of Utah. This long-awaited volume includes more than 300 paintings, many never before seen or brought together in one work.

Concerning Publishing Smart: How to...

Thursday, May 8, 2014, 10am – 12pm

Authors want their scholarly articles to be seen, cited and utilized. This class provides opportunities for researchers to increase their visibility by exploring various publishing and archiving choices. Tools for evaluating journal impact factors, online usage, local online availability, retaining copyrights, and submission to online archives are covered. These tools include ISI's Journal Citation Report, Google Scholar, Scopus, Ulrich's Periodicals Directory, Science Commons' Scholar's Copyright Addendum Engine, the NIH Manuscript Submission System / PubMed Central, and submission to USpace, the University of Utah Institutional Repository. Come discover these tools and maximize your scholarly impact.

The class provides critical background information. This includes an update on issues in scholarly publishing at the local, national, and international level, the identification and evaluation of journals which will maximize exposure to scholarly works, identification of trends and new models in Open Access publishing, archiving, and funding. In addition, tools to assist authors will be introduced.

The class is a "hands-on" experience utilizing these tools. For example, searching for journal impact factors, performing citation analysis for individual papers, using the Science Commons' Scholar's Copyright Addendum Engine and submitting manuscripts to PubMed Central and the University of Utah Institutional Repository (IR).

Workshop title: Photopolymer Intagl...

Friday, May 9, 2014, 9am – 5pm

In this two-day printmaking powwow, Mare Blocker outlines methods for making images on transparencies as well as strategies for photopolymer intaglio printing and registration. Participants use black or tonal artwork on clear transparency to expose and develop a light sensitive photopolymer plate. By hand-wiping the photopolymer plate, participants create an original intaglio print using an etching press. Suitable for recreating an impression of a photographic image, rather than a highly detailed version. This method is ideal for those who want to reduce toxic materials in their studios. Discussion topics include ink, paper, and dampening choices. Open to all ages. Drawing experience preferred but not required.



Mare Blocker has been making limited edition and unique books since 1979 and established the MKimberly Press in 1984. She earned a BFA in Ceramic Sculpture at he University of Washington and an MFA at the University of Idaho. Her work can be found in over 85 public collections and museums including The Victoria and Albert, the J. Paul Getty Museum, The University of Washington Special Collections, The Albertson Library at Boise State University, and The Library of Congress. Mare has been a Library Fellow award winner from the National Museum for Women in the Arts, Washington, DC and a Sally R Bishop Artist in Residence at the Center for Book Arts in New York. She is the President of the Book Arts Guild, and is on the Board of Directors for the College Book Art Association. Event Calendars: College of Fine Arts, Marriott Library
