Utah Surface Design Group Exhibits

The USDG's first group show was in 2003, at the Rio Gallery, Salt Lake City, sponsored, in-part, by the Utah Arts Council. At the time, there were only about 22 official members in the group. Throughout the years, USDG shows and exhibits have often been open to all local fiber artists.
This page contains just a small representation of the works exhibited at USDG shows over the years. Not all artists' works are displayed, nor are photo credits given when images were gathered from members own files.

2015 Group Show "Reclamation"

June 19 through July 10, 2015
Art Access, Main Gallery
230 South 500 West, Salt Lake City

"Reclamation: A person's soul, scraps of cloth, paper and fiber, and the ancient arts of fiber crafts have something very important in common: At one time or another they have been lost and then reclaimed through art. The Utah Surface Design Group, a group of textile artists, collagists and fiber enthusiasts, will explore the meaning of "Reclamation" through the art they produce for their biennial art show. The theme will be explored literally, philosophically, materially, and spiritually and presented for the viewer to explore and discover through weaving, collage, assemblage, mixed media, dyeing, printing, quilting and wearable art.
