Deviant Art is an exhibition of paintings by Grant Fuhst. Fuhst is a self-taught artist working with acrylics, mixed media, and digital media. He has worked in various professional settings including comic books, CD package design, magazine covers and electronic game design, and his work incorporates a variety of styles and themes. Fuhst’s work has been seen locally at Kayo Gallery, 2nd Street, The Pickle Company and at Contemporary Design & Art during its surrealism show, as well as in exhibits in New York City, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Fuhst also designed the artwork for PTC’s current production of Dracula.

Toypocalypse All 3-D is an exhibition of sculptures by Adrian Prazen. Prazen calls these sculptures “a plastic toy assemblage project in which disregarded toys have come to life are assembling armies and fighting for their salvation.” Prazen is the founder of Expressions in Art, a furniture and lighting company catering to architects and interior designers. He is also co-founder of Pop Arts LLC, a Utah company that produced large-scale metal sculpture for commercial settings. During its seven-year career, Pop Arts received a number of commissions and awards, including three best of show awards from the Utah Arts Festival. Prazen now heads an independent furniture and lighting design/development company.

The exhibit can be experienced on the mezzanine level of the Roy W. and Elizabeth E. Simmons Pioneer Memorial Theatre through the run of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. The gallery is open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and before and after performances for ticket holders.
