Happenings: Silhouette Artist Karl Johnson at Maison Confiserie et Boutique

Score a hand-cut silhouette by the master scissor artist on Friday, July 19


WHAT: We’ve admired the work of Karl Johnson, a third-generation silhouette artist known for his charming hand-cut silhouette portraits, since we first read about his Edward-Scissorhands-like skills in this Martha Stewart Weddings Real Wedding feature. Johnson’s talents have been featured in numerous other glossies, too, including Elle Decor, In Style, and O, The Oprah Magazine. His artwork hangs in Hollywood homes, and he’s created silhouettes of guests at the weddings of Reese Witherspoon and Drew Barrymore. We think Johnson’s chic black-and-white cut-outs make whimsical, unique decor elements for wedding receptions and newlywed nests. Score your own personalized silhouette art when Johnson makes a stop in SLC later this month.

WHERE: Maison Confiserie et Boutique (1291 South 1100 East, Salt Lake City)

WHEN: Friday, July 19. Can’t make it that day? Drop off or email a profile photograph and payment to Maison, and Johnson will cut the silhouette and leave it for you to pick up.

HOW: To schedule a portrait session (5 minute appointments per person), call the boutique at 801-953-0334. Adults and children are welcome. Silhouettes come mounted on a 5×7 card suitable for framing. Original silhouettes are $25, duplicates are $15; framing is available for $16.
