The Bountiful Davis Art Center's Statewide Annual is a competitive exhibition celebrating the diverse artistic talents within Utah. This event serves as a vital platform for early and later career artists, providing significant exposure and opportunities for professional growth within the vibrant Utah arts community.


This exhibition showcases a wide array of artistic disciplines, from traditional paintings and sculptures to innovative installations and new media works. Each year the BDAC selects a guest juror to curate the exhibition and award the three strongest pieces.


We are pleased to welcome Joseph Ostraff as our 2024 juror.


Joseph was born in Santa Monica, California, spent his formative years in Laguna Beach, and now resides in Fairview, Utah, with his family. He holds an MFA from the University of Washington and currently serves as art department chair and professor of art at Brigham Young University. Joseph maintains a rigorous painting studio practice, complemented through partnerships and collaboration. His primary collaborator is his wife, Melinda, with whom he shares a studio. Melinda, who earned her PhD from the University of Victoria, BC, with a focus on Ethnobotany, has seamlessly integrated her expertise with Joseph's, resulting in a unique practice centered around the intersection of human geography and nature. Recently, Melinda and Joseph were featured on season one of the KBYU Artful Series. Joseph is a three-time recipient of the Utah Artist Fellowship, as well as a recipient of the Ballinglen Artist Fellowship in Ballycastle, Co Mayo, Ireland. Joseph has exhibited extensively in national and international venues.
