Alice Gallery

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.

“The Cost of Anything”

May 15 – July 10, 2015
Please join us for an artist reception on May 15, 6-9 pm for Gallery Stroll

“The cost of a thing is the amount of what I call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.”

—Henry David Thoreau

The work in this exhibition includes artifacts that might be considered obsolete, yet in their altered context, gain renewed contemporary credibility. Artists commit considerable portions of their mortal existence to creative endeavors in exchange for the prospect of leaving vestiges of their unique existence. Desiring more than an implicit pursuit to determine the amount of life dedicated to the creative act and to calculate the intrinsic value of the resulting artifacts, each work included in this exhibition has been laboriously documented by itemizing time, emotional, and monetary investment. Works range from sculpture, video, paintings, mixed media, and prints.

Artists include, Abe Kimball, Adam Larsen, Chris Purdie, Jason Lanegan, Madison Smith and Paul Woods.
