Eden 1900 Art Gallery to host two distinct “Meet the Artist” demonstrations

Come, Meet the Artist! Are you looking for inspiring art to express uniqueness in your home? Are you an artist yourself looking to extend your art education or learn new techniques? Do you yearn to learn more about different mediums of art? Are you tired of mass-produced products ordered from Amazon? We have fine art solutions and two live, art-experience opportunities for you.

Eden 1900 Art Gallery will host two summer “Meet the Artist” presentations, where you can learn more about the diverse art mediums of Linocut printmaking and Plein Air oil painting.

Expect each of these demonstrations to last about 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Eden 1900 Art Gallery is pleased to present these fine art experiences as a service to our local community. These are great ways for you to learn more about fine art and meet our fabulous local artists.

About the Printmaking Demonstration

KAC July 15 2022 4x4 1 - Come "Meet the Artist" at Eden 1900 Art Gallery
Join us for this informative, free Printmaking Demonstration with fine artist Kristin Carver.

Kristin Carver is a multi-talented artist who specializes in the fine art of printmaking, and whose focus is on relief cuts in linoleum printed on beautiful handmade papers. Printmaking is a lesser known, but old art tradition. Few understand the complexities and varied practices that fall under the printmaking umbrella.

While her fine artwork is on display here at the Eden 1900 Art Gallery, Kristin has agreed to give us a demonstration demystifying the magic of printmaking. Her free demonstration will take place on Friday, July 29th starting at 11 AM right here in the art gallery. Limited seating is available. Fun for the whole family, come watch and learn! To sign up now and reserve your seat, visit

When we say that one of her prints is number six of 25, those who are only familiar with modern printing do not understand that each print is created by hand and varies slightly from the others in the series, making each is its own original. Learn how the base art is created, how each special paper is selected for finish and texture, how the ink is applied to the paper, and how the colors are applied one after another to create each finished piece.

About the Artist – Kristin Carver

Printmaking Artist Kristin Carver

Artist Kristin Alley Carver was raised in Ogden, Utah, by parents who were both medical professionals. Early on, she was intent on a nursing degree, but one art class turned into many leading to her graduation from Utah State University with a Bachelor’s in Fine Art.

After struggling to start a family, Kristin believed she had to give up art to pursue motherhood. For a time her artist identity was buried, until a college mentor invited her to be involved in a printmaking project. Creation is now part of her spiritual practice, and her husband and children are her biggest supporters. This fall will mark six years that Kristin Carver and her family have been living in Eden, the area of Ogden Valley where her husband grew up.

One of Natalie Shupe’s local paintings serves as the background for the Plein Air Oil Painting Demonstration Ad.

Natalie Shupe is also a multi-talented, local artist. She specializes in oil paintings. Several of her beautiful paintings are hanging on display in the Eden 1900 Art Gallery. Having recently won first place at the Midway Plein Air contest, Liberty artist Natalie Shupe is more than qualified to demonstrate for us the benefits and struggles involved in Plein Air oil painting.

Natalie will help us overcome the unique outdoor challenges of changing light, overwhelming information, while explaining her best approaches and recommending equipment to use.

Natalie will present this free community Plein Air oil painting demonstration out-of-doors at Eden 1900 Art Gallery on Thursday, August 4th beginning at 10 AM. To sign up today and reserve space (hopefully in the shade), visit We highly recommend bringing your own lawn chair!

About the Artist – Natalie Shupe

Plein Air Oil Painting Artist Natalie Shupe

Natalie Rhees Shupe was born in Ogden, Utah, and grew up on a small farm with animals, fruit trees, and room to roam. She hated to come inside to practice piano, so her wise parents substituted art lessons. As a result, she began to paint in oils at eleven years of age. It was at Snow College that she had the opportunity to study with Osrael Allred and Carl Purcell. She finished a BFA at Utah State University in Art Education.

When her two-year-old son ate the oil paints off her palette, she put them away and the demands of family took over. Natalie found a creative outlet in quilting and won awards, taught classes, and published designs. The desire to paint returned when her oldest daughter began her art degree at Utah State. It looked so fun that when she heard about a workshop offered by John Poon, Natalie signed up. She has been painting determinedly ever since.

More workshops with John Poon, John Hughes, and Russell Case have increased her vision of what paintings can be. She is anxious to learn all she can. Searching for subject matter, hiking, roaming, and exploring, are the special perks of being a landscape painter.
