NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- LDS Artist Lane Twitchell's art is being
exhibited again in New York City. A "substantial selection" of
Twitchell's work is in a Bronx Museum of Art show commemorating the
20th anniversary of their Artists in the Marketplace program, of
which Twitchell, who is in his 30's, is a graduate.
Twitchell's work has attracted notice for its intricacy and the way
he "draws on his Mormon background in imaginative ways." Twitchell is
best known for his "elaborate, image-packed cut-paper pieces (aka
snowflakes). Many of the works include Mormon images worked into the
design of the cut-paper.
The Artists in the Marketplace program might be best described as
career training for artists. Three dozen artists are selected each
year for a 12-week seminar by the Bronx Museum of Art's curatorial
staff, who coach the artists in everything from how to land a gallery
to writing grants to dealing with taxes and critics.
