SALT LAKE CITY — Seven Mormon artists will be featured at this year's Artists at Work event at the LDS Church History Museum on Friday, March 23, starting at 6:30 p.m.

The artists include painters Cassandra Barney, Eric Dowdle and Kent Wallis, sculptor Angela Johnson and ceramist Janis Mars Wunderlich. Also, photographer Don Busath will show examples of his photos, and printmaker Blanche Wilson will demonstrate her skills at making woodcut prints.

Artists at Work is a popular event and draws more than 500 guests annually. "This is the fourth year we've hosted this program, and we're very excited about the artists who will be sharing their talents with us this year," said Peggy Rinehart, the "Evenings at the Museum" coordinator.

The artists bring unfinished pieces and actively work on them while museum guests watch and ask questions.

Artists at Work is free and open to the public, and guests can attend any time between 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. The Church History Museum is at 45 N. West Temple in Salt Lake City. Free parking for this event will be available at 119 W. North Temple (the lot just west of the museum). For more information, see history.lds.org.
