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:

“Articles of Clothing”

July 31 – August 28, 2015

An artist reception will be held on Friday, August 21 from 6 to 9 p.m. for
Salt Lake Gallery Stroll.

Clothing is a phenomenon that permeates culture. It is often known as a second skin; it wraps the body in protection, mystery, symbolism, and status. It is utilitarian and decorative. Clothing can be both liberating and oppressive. This exhibition explores the notion of clothing as an extension contiguous to individual bodies and to collective bodies. Artists include, Von Allen, Daniel Barney, Jennifer Barton, Gary Barton, Fidalis Buehler, Brian Christensen, Jen Harmon Allen, Joseph Ostraff, and Sunny Taylor.
