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.”
Every year on President's Day weekend, Dixie State University hosts it's prestigious Robert N. and Peggy Sears Dixie Invitational Art Show & Sale. The university proudly showcases over 100 artists from all over the West and more than 200 traditional, contemporary, and sculptural pieces of artwork.
The art show was founded by Robert N. Sears, who passed away in May 1995. Sears, a retired vice president of Phillips Petroleum, worked tirelessly to establish a quality art invitational at the University which has become one of the most popular, well-attended exhibits in the state of Utah.
This year the show and gala will be held February 19, 2019.
Karl has won Best of Show and a Purchase Award in past years. Get out of the cold for a weekend and enjoy the show!
For the 14th consecutive year, Karl participated in the Zions Bank Art Show held every November in downtown Salt Lake City. The event is a fabulous production, with over 70 incredible artists showing their works on almost every floor. Local florists and chefs are there providing food, and musicians make the environment lively and fun.
This year, Karl was on the 18th floor with some of his favorite artists and friends such as, Valoy Eaton, Michael Coleman, Steve Songer, Kathy Peterson, Ken Baxter, Jon Collins, Kimball Warren, and Frank Huff.
Several of Karl’s works sold to private collectors, and bank president, Scott Anderson, purchased two for the bank’s extensive collection.
A huge thank you to Zions Bank for contributing to the arts in such a meaningful way.
