The Alice Gallery is located at the historic Glendinning Mansion in Salt Lake City, which also houses the main offices of Utah Arts & Museums. The gallery is named after Alice Merrill Horne, a legislator who supported the arts and founded the Utah Arts Council in 1899. This gallery hosts exhibitions by Utah artists and works from the State Fine Art Collection.
There Must Be Black
November 15, 2013 – January 3, 2014
Gallery Stroll Opening Reception: November 15, 2013, 6 – 9 p.m.
This exhibition consists of new drawings and mixed-media works by Catherine Downing, Nancy Steele-Makasci and Tawni Shuler. The pieces in this exhibition are intended to reveal “black” in all its variety, from dense, rich, impenetrable blacks to smoky, hazy, delicate grays. Even though black is often interpreted in a negative sense referring to death, evil or destruction, in this exhibition, powerful and intense black will be a place of solace and rest in a sometimes tumultuous and transitory world. Black then becomes a metaphor for a certain kind of experience in the world.
The artists state, “No matter what we do or whom we meet, we all leave behind an imprint. This imprint leaves a faint impression in each of us — emotionally, physically or spiritually — long after we are done. Black and its values can function in this way: a residue of something past, a memory in a lost shadow.”
