ERRATICS

A Portfolio by Saltgrass Printmakers

“A glacial erratic is a glacially deposited rocks which differ from size and type native to the area which it rests. They are formed by glacial erosion, resulting from the movement of ice. Glaciers crack, gouge, or thrust pieces of bedrock and carry them, often over hundreds of miles. Erratics take their name from the Latin word errare, meaning 'to wander.’ They are hugely significant, they mark the path of prehistoric glacial movements as they can be traced back to their parent bedrock.”

The artists in this exhibit conceptualized glacial erratic as a metaphor by exploring their relationship to Utah. How did you come to live in Utah? How has this varied landscape shaped you personally? How has your personal ‘bedrock’ informed your response to place?
