Covey Center to showcase works by artists across Utah

From Washington County to Cache Valley, Utah is filled with accomplished artists who reside in
many different portions of the state.

And luckily for Utah Valley residents, many of the drawings, paintings and bronze pieces created
by these artists will go on display Friday morning at the Covey Center for the Arts in downtown
Provo. More specifically, the art center, with the support of Provo city, is holding its First
Annual Statewide Summer Arts Showcase in an attempt to congregate some of Utah's best
artwork into one distinct location.

The juried event, which will run until the end of July, received 110 entries from many different
artists -- 57 of which were chosen by a committee to be shown in the exhibition. While eight of
these pieces are of the 3D variety, the majority of those that made the cut were 2D pieces. Daily Herald
