Karl Thomas Featured in Southwest Art February 2019 Issue

The February 2019 issue of Southwest Art included Karl Thomas in their Utah Artists feature. From the article:

“From Zion National Park to the Wasatch Range, Utah is home to a slew of desert sanctuaries, forests, lakes, and mountain peaks. Naturally, the Salt Lake State is a popular haven for nature lovers and outdoor adventures alike. Many of Utah’s visitors are less familiar, however, with this wonderland’s vibrant fine-art culture. In fact, many painters and sculptors live and work throughout the state, and they portray a variety of subject matter that includes but is not limited to their homeland’s rugged beauty.”
