Inflected Form(s): plural -tus•es or –tus Etymology: Latin, from apparare to prepare, from ad- + parare 1 a. a set of materials or equipment designed for a particular use b. a group of anatomical or cytological parts functioning together c. an instrument or appliance designed for a specific operation 2. the functional processes by means of which a systematized activity is carried out: as a. the machinery of government b. the organization of a political party or an underground movement.

This systematized activity, the underground movement if you will, is also the title of the upcoming print exchange and show spearheaded by local printmakers Camilla Taylor, Russel Daniels and Trent Call. I was recently told you have to make money off your art in order to be called an artist (yeah, whatever), so we’ll just call them Print Pushers!

SLUG: Camilla, when you announced the theme Apparatus, what kind of reaction did you received from the printmakers?

Camilla Taylor: One artist; someone you wouldn’t expect, said oh, apparatus, you mean like a dildo, right?

SLUG: Do you think this show will take on a more sexual undertone than some of the past exchanges?

CT: I think The Citizen, Misplaced and Decay shows were all really political; all about politics or death, so I think everyone just wanted to make it about sex now.

Trent Call: It’s because that’s what we’re all after.

CT: I try to think of a theme that allows me to make something depressing; I couldn’t do a show on interpersonal cooperation, or fairies.

Being that this show is not up yet and most of the work is in a conceptual state, what one word could each of you offer to provide some insight to our readers on what to expect of this show?

Print Pushers; Megalomania, Cranium, Hook, Intensive Dental Reconstructive Surgery, Homo erectus, Imagination and Transformation.

Well, there you have it, come check out the deranged view of 20 of Salt Lake’s finest printmakers. The Apparatus show is one evening and one evening only! Gallery Stroll night, Feb. 18th from 6-9p.m. @ Chris Creyt’s studio, 335 W. Pierpont Ave. (240 S.)
