About Ken Church
Church graduated from the York School of Art in England. After graduation he moved to the United States where he received a scholarship to study fine art at Brigham Young University. He then moved on to postgraduate studies in drawing and illustration at The Art Center College in California.
His paintings are in a modern style of contemporary impressionism, characterized by bold brush strokes, expressive lines and finished with hand rubbed glazes that combine to create a patina of depth and color.
Church began his career as a full-time artist in June of 2015 after a long career as a creative director at several Los Angeles-area advertising agencies.
About Hazel Janet White
White attended the University of Utah to complete her bachelor of fine arts degree. She focused on painting and drawing. She earned a teaching certificate and spent 12 years teaching art at the middle school level.
White’s rural desert upbringing informs the solitude and organics of her work. Organic shapes dominate her work. They reflect her experiences, mentally and emotionally, as a woman. The physical act of giving birth and the constant rebirthing of ourselves is communicated through her work.
She has exhibited in many art shows throughout Utah and has been a member of Ceramic Artists of Utah since 1991.
