Exhibit Illustrates Work of Derek Boshier

OGDEN, Utah -- Derek Boshier's Works on Paper: A Retrospective 1955-2003 will be on display this fall in the Ethel Wattis Kimball Visual Arts Center's Mary Elizabeth Dee Shaw Gallery.

The exhibit, which opens Aug. 25 and runs through Oct. 25, offers a comprehensive look at Boshier’s work, ranging from a 1957 drawing of his father to Urban Explorations of the 1990's to current work.

This display will include drawings, posters, prints and graphics (work with pop music groups The Clash and David Bowie). Boshier played a key role in the British Pop Movement along with contemporaries David Hockney and Peter Phillips and R.B. Kitaj.

His works can be found in the Tate Gallery, London, England and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Examples of the artist's work can be found online at: www.derekboshier.com

A reception for the artist will be held September 17, from 7-9 p.m. A gallery talk with the artist is scheduled for September 18, from 6-8 p.m. All events are free to the public. The gallery is open Monday-Saturday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
