Rio Gallery

Located in the grand lobby of the old Rio Grande Depot, the Rio Gallery was established as a service to Utah artists, providing a free venue for emerging as well as established artists to collaborate on exhibits and engage the community through art-making and dialogue.

Currently at the Rio Gallery:

“Seven: Perspective Landscapes”

May 8 – June 12, 2015

An artist reception will be held on May 15 from 6 to 9 p.m. for
Salt Lake Gallery Stroll.

Seven landscape artists are joining together to exhibit a shared passion for the environment each one loves to paint and represent. Through their own individual interpretation and expression of what landscape means to them, they have a collected body of work that is uniquely distinctive in delivery, composition, material, style, application, method, and theory.

These bodies of work are influenced by time in the field, plein-air painting, photographs, video, live models, imagination, and instinct. Each work of art is  identified by evidence of hard work, dedication, perseverance, integrity, and passion. 

This relatively young group of artists is making their way successfully through the challenges of the art world, bringing together a body of landscape art that will be a perfect collection to tantalize, tease, and entice the viewer to see something new in the landscape through the multi-colored lens of each artist.

Artists: Eric Thompson, Hadley Rampton, Brandon Cook, Nathan Florence, Steven Adams, Craig Cleveland, Janell James.
