LDS Artist Included In 20th Anniversary Show At Bronx Museum
New York Times 12May00 A2
By Holland Cotter

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.
