2018 ECAF Featured Artist Exhibit
September 28 @ 10:00 am - September 29 @ 6:00 pm
Visit the back room of the Community Center to see an exhibit presented by the 2018 Escalante Canyons Art Festival Featured Artist – Shawn Miller. Shawn is an Escalante resident, painter and owner of Escape Goats, his guiding business into the isolated, remote surrealistic spaces of the Escalante wilderness. Shawn was first drawn to landscapes as a child growing up in Rapid City, South Dakota where he roamed the Black Hills and Mount Rushmore. His art has been influenced by the unique settings of the places he has lived in the Dakotas and Utah. When he first got to Escalante 15 years ago, he took lessons from and was encouraged by the late Peggy Soren. Shawn shares his love of this special area through his art as his appreciation of the natural patterns in rocks, geology and plant life can easily be seen in his paintings. Enjoy the variety of Shawn’s work in this exhibit.
