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.
“Devotees and Their Shrines”
July 18 – September 12, 2014
One hundred years ago, in 1914, Alice Merrill Horne published her treatise and history of Utah art and culture called “Devotees and Their Shrines.” Ms. Horne, Utah’s second woman legislator, was in the position to know, as the founder of the Utah Art Institute (now called the Utah Division of Arts & Museums). Ms. Horne’s leadership in support of Utah artists, the environment, education, and quality of life has enriched the lives of Utahns for more than a century.
The artworks included in “Devotees and Their Shrines – 2014” are from the State Fine Art Collection (aka Alice Art Collection), created by the establishment of the Utah Art Institute. Some of the works included are the specific works mentioned in Ms. Horne’s treatise, while others are by the artists she writes of so passionately.
“When you go to hear the best music, it is to listen and enjoy. You attend a lecture to learn. You should go to the art gallery to use your eyes, to learn from the artist, to try to understand what he has to say.” – Alice Merrill Horne
