Dane Goodwin

Saltgrass Printmakers’ 2015 Emerging Printmaker Award

Goodwin is a Printmaker from the Saltiest City in Utah. The characters in his prints give a visual representation to the feelings we all experience.  Excitement, anxiety, freedom, constraint, connectedness, and loneliness. His influences include the bold colors and angsty undertones of street art and graffiti culture,  as well as the simplicity and bold lines of cartoons. His work can be purchased at danegoodwinart.bigcartel.com,  also check out @danegoodies, @a_la_cart, and @goodiesslc on Instagram


Jazmine Martinez

Saltgrass Printmakers’ 2016 Emerging Printmaker Award

Please join us Friday, June 10, 2016 – 6pm to 9pm, during the Sugar House Art Walk to celebrate Martinez and Goodwin’s accomplishments and artistic development.

Exhibition Dates: June 10th through July 9th, 2016.

Saltgrass Printmakers gallery is opened F/SAT 11 am to 3pm.

Martinez was born in Los Angeles, California into a Latino household. The Chicana culture is a huge influence in her life and creative development. She celebrates her background while embracing printmaking as a medium.

Throughout the world and across cultures, relief prints have been a catalyst for political, social and educational change. Artists have a unique perspective in relation to their societies and communities. Emulating artists, Jose Guadalupe Posada and Artemino Rodriquez, Martinez incorporates their loose, satirical and whimsical artistic style to comment on issues and situations with her ‘Chicana artistic flavor.’

“While it may seem grandiose and naïve I believe that there is some truth to the idea of creating change, whether it be minuscule or huge.”
