”A Bright Recollection” by Paige Crosland Anderson

Paige draws from the visual language of Latter-day Saint pioneer quilt-making, a rich part of her own cultural heritage. Her paintings are often organized with familiar stars, log cabins, or bullseyes found in her grandmother Donna’s quilts.

Anderson was a Purchase Award winner at the 10th International Art Competition, "Tell Me The Stories of Jesus," a juried exhibition at the Church History Museum in Salt Lake City, Utah. She received Honorable Mention from the annual Zion Art Competition in 2016. She was selected honorable mention at the 96th Annual Spring Salon (2021), a juried exhibition at the Springville Art Museum in Springville, Utah. She was recognized by Utah’s Governor Cox and First Lady Cox with the 2022 Governor’s Mansion Artist Awards.[1] 

Paige was born and raised in Provo, Utah, and earned her bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from Brigham Young University. She was a valedictorian and was selected as a commencement speaker. She continued painting as she started a family with her husband and moved around the world, finally settling back home in the Salt Lake Valley.
