Carper Contemporary presents Touching the Void, a solo exhibition for Ogden artist Lydia Gravis at The Argo House. "Instead of taking something specific, and abstracting its essence, my work attempts to take something abstract, like the idea of liminal psychological space, and suggest its specificity through visual language," says the artist.
Lydia Gravis lives and works in Ogden, Utah. She earned her B.A. in painting and drawing from Warren Wilson College in Asheville, N.C. in 2003 and her MFA in visual art from the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University in 2013.

- Art Box – Art Box invites you to attend January’s First Friday Art Stroll in their new location at The Monarch! Acting out of bravery, and compulsory love for her brother Brett, Lizzy Cala will be sharing her new series: “Reason for Hope.” In 2018, ten years after Brett died by suicide, Lizzy honored her brother by exhibiting his photography accompanied by her poetry at Art Box, telling her story through his eyes. Lizzy shared her art and personal experience in order to support others in their journey, and to “See the Light” through it.
Today, Lizzy continues her life, while learning about mental health and the importance it has on suicide awareness and prevention. Her exhibit is not only an act of art, it is also her expression of living with hope for the humanity in us all.
A transplant from Massachusetts, Lizzy has made Utah home for the better part of 19 years. Although a writer at heart, she followed her intrigue of the human race through Anthropology, eventually graduating with a B.A. in International Studies from the University of Utah, in hopes of spending her life integrating into other cultures.
In 2008, Lizzy lost her brother, Brett, to suicide. A photojournalist of the world, Brett influenced his younger sister by capturing his subjects through the lens of his heart. Since, Lizzy has worked with non-profit agencies, has spent countless days on the road fulfilling her wanderlust while promoting international sustainability projects, and served in Guatemala as a Peace Corps volunteer. Each experience accounted for through personal writing and the art of photography, exemplified by her brother.
Currently, Lizzy’s journey has brought her to Ogden, where she spends her days raising three young children, exploring nature, and fulfilling her passion for advocacy as she explores the creative process of love and grief by utilizing her intrinsic expression of poetry and photography.
In addition, Art Box will be lighting the way by donating 10% of all create-your-own candle sales for the month of January to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
