Springville Art City Days artist honored months after shattering arm in snowboarding crash
In conjunction with its annual Art City Days happening the first week of June, the city of Springville has chosen Alison Watson as its Resident Artist for 2019.
Earlier this year, however, the artist who specializes in pottery couldn’t even move her arm, let alone throw a pot.
It was on Jan. 17 when Watson, who is also a ski instructor at the Sundance Mountain Resort, was getting ready to teach a class. It was a stormy day, and visibility was low. Watson had some time before her class to do some free riding on the back mountain, so she took advantage of her alone time to get in some good snowboarding runs.
