Ogden Contemporary Arts – Artist Name: Horacio Rodriguez - OCA will be hosting an Artist Chat at 6 pm!
Bio: Horacio Rodriguez is an artist and educator originally from Houston, Texas. After spending the summers in high school wandering the streets of Houston's Museum District and taking classes at the Glassell School of Art, he dedicated himself to a career in the arts by majoring first in photography before finding his true passion: ceramics and sculpture.
After graduating from the University of Redlands in California, Horacio spent time traveling throughout Latin America and the Caribbean; immersing himself in the culture, language, and food of his ancestors. The following decade was spent teaching art, digital graphics, and ceramics at Chavez High School on the East side of Houston; working primarily with the immigrant communities that had inspired him during his travels.
Horacio says about his work, "My work is about the many borders I have crossed in my life. I carry many of these borders with me in my memories and produce work about these physical and psychological borders. As a product of multiple cultures and identities, my art is used as a vehicle to explore the creation of my personal narrative within the hybrid cultures of the borderlands."
Horacio has shown his work extensively; He recently won best of show in the international exhibition, Clay on the Wall, sponsored by Texas Tech University and displayed at the LH Underwood Center for the Arts. He was also recently included in Contemporary Clay, which was displayed at the Western Colorado Center for the Arts as well as Site Lines, The University of Utah’s Art Department faculty show at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts.

The Hilton Garden Inn – The featured artist for The Hilton Garden Inn is Alex Udink. Her bio is below.
I am Alexandria Udink. I was born and raised in Ogden, Utah. Ogden’s rich history and growth has facilitated an environment to develop a strong personal belief in finding beauty in the grit. The mountains and valleys I call home have not only been a key inspiration for my creative work but have provided space to deepen a connection to our planet.
Creating often becomes both an outlet and an inward journey. The appearance of textures in the layers resembles many different elements of life and human emotion. The recurring involvement of nature and bareness is shown in the work encompasses the importance of being both vulnerable and connected in our natural world.
The inspiration to create comes from within the world I absorb around me, alongside the world of imagination I find inside myself. The goal of my creative process is to shift the shapes and thoughts from beyond my frontal cortex and onto a viewable surface. There, I find the ideas more pliable to work with. They are at that point able to take on a more in-depth journey of their own, often teaching me more than I direct.
In the paintings, you’ll find acrylic on canvas. In the drawings, a mixture of tools is utilized. Usually, the tool used is whichever writing instrument is physically closest in proximity to my eagerly creative hands. Sharpies, mechanical pencils, and pens create the layers onto paper.
