Welcome to the land where the earth meets the sky

A Calendar of Events: Outdoor, Hisroric, Sport, Recreation, Theatre, Music and Art.

Where one can be standing on dinosaur tracks on a trail worn down by the Anasazi Indians, followed by immigrant wagon trains, cowboys, sheepherders, and today is a major highway. Over a nearby hill are the remains of a pioneer settlement. One sees the millions of years of geologic history on the multi-colored mountains and cliffs jutting out of the earth, with the art work of the ancients on the smooth rocks at their base.

It is a warm dry place with mild winters where only the strong have survived.

This high desert is a time machine filled with stories, adventure and discovery.

A magnet — attracting scientists, photographers, hikers, hunters, tourist, writers, rock climbers, artists, and all other adventures from around the world.

Many stay — creating a population of unusual talent and experience.

New Documentary Film Honors 100 Years of Education in Southern Utah, Honors Pioneer Beginning

Iron Spyke Pictures has signed a promotion and distribution agreement with Washington County School District for the new documentary film, “On Dreams of Dixie.”

Established in 1915, Washington County School District celebrates 100-years of public education in southern Utah this fall. “On Dreams of Dixie” commemorates the anniversary and offers a heartfelt look at the history of the people and events of a district established by dedicated pioneers in a once harsh and barren red desert.

Through personal interviews representing nearly a century of voices, and from records found in the archives of local history, “On Dreams of Dixie” provides a character-driven look at what it was like attending school in southern Utah's early settlement communities. The film also portrays the evolution of southern Utah schools through the invention of technology and modern day.

On Aug. 1, the film’s world premier will take place at a private screening at Desert Hills High School, followed by a screening open to the public at 8:45 p.m. “On Dreams of Dixie” has also been accepted to the 2015 DOCUTAH International Film Festival and will be screened as evening feature film during the Sept. 8-12 festival week. The film is 27 minutes in length and is accepted to the festival’s documentary short category.


Dixie State’s Sears Art Museum Gallery opens new exhibit

The unique styles, skills and inspiration of many well-known Utah artists are on display this summer as Dixie State University’s Sears Art Museum Gallery hosts its new exhibit, “One X One.”

The exhibit, juried by professors in DSU’s Art Department, offers a variety of media applications including mixed media, oil, acrylic, watercolor, ceramics, sculpture and photography and an abundance of subject matters. Works range from traditional to contemporary and all pieces on display are 12 inches by 12 inches, making a fascinating visual statement. The exhibit features works by well-known local artists and many who participate in the DSU Sears Invitational Art Show.

Additionally, the show features a special exhibit by three invited artists: William Kody Keller, Blaine Atwood and J. Amber Egbert.

Keller, a St. George native who now lives in Spanish Fork, works with bronze and has completed a number of large projects for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He earned a Master’s of Fine Arts from Brigham Young University and now teaches there.

Atwood, a Price resident, recently completed his Master’s of Fine Arts from BYU. His exciting installation piece that is on display at the Sears Art Museum Gallery uses 600 mugs and many finials.

“The finial is an architectural element that is implemented at the apex of most religious meetinghouses. It is used for this purpose because it points toward the heavens and lifts the mind upward toward God,” Atwood said. “The mug, on the other hand, is one of the most humble and universal ceramic service vessels. It is used around the world as a drinking container whose sole purpose is service, or to give life-sustaining nourishment to mankind. The combination of these two visual elements seeks to encompass my personal art practice, my research, and the element of the sublime that we all possess.”

Egbert is a ceramicist and is working on her Master’s of Fine Arts at BYU. Upon graduation, she plans to share her art through participation in solo and group exhibitions and continue on as an art educator.

In addition, art by Rebecca Gaver, who is from Kanab, is displayed in the Eccles Grand Foyer.

The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is closed on state and national holidays.

About Us

Serving Southern Utah since 2002

I have lived in ten cities in six states, from San Diego, California to upstate New York. My natural curiosity drove me to explore every nook-and-cranny to see what I could discover where i lived.

Since moving here I've discovered that there are more nooks-and-crannies and culture opportunities of unusual quailty here then anywhere that I lived before.

This sites pages with a calender of events an news will help you Discover the Adventure and put Southern Utah At Your Fingertips.

You can keep up with my by following me on Twitter, Blogger, Instagram, Flickr and YouTube.

Carpe Diem,
Carl
