Joseph Paul Vorst Lithographs

An exhibition of Vorst's American lithographs will be on view at Writ & Vision, a fine art gallery in Provo, Utah, beginning April 7, 2018. While this is not a Mormon Artists Group event, it is curated by Glen Nelson whose monograph on the artist, Joseph Paul Vorst, was published by Mormon Artists Group six months ago. 

The show will bring together Vorst's complete extant American lithographs for the first time in a gallery exhibition. Two years after his death, the LDS Church in St. Louis brought many of his paintings and lithographs together for a memorial show. This is the first since that time to gather these beautiful images again.

Glen Nelson has written a 92-page catalog for the show, including new scholarship, an interview between Nelson and gallery owner Brad Kramer, reproductions and observations on each of the 37 works. Lithographs in the exhibition range between $800 and $1200. The opening begins at 6:00 p.m.
