CUAC offers an annual juried exhibition called Utah Ties for artists who are living in Utah, living outside of Utah, but are from Utah, or who have spent time as students or professionally in Utah. There will be awards totaling $1,000 given to juror’s selections in the show.
The purpose of the show is to help Utah artists gain exposure in Utah and also to the outside art community by being exposed to a juror who operates a commercial gallery outside of Utah.
2015 juror is Mara McCarthy of The Box Gallery in Los Angeles. The Box was the 2014 winner of the Stand Prize at Frieze London for the best booth. She is the principal curator in a visionary gallery that takes on challenging projects and regularly presents groundbreaking and historical exhibitions.
