Alice Gallery

The Alice Gallery is located at the historic Glendinning Mansion in Salt Lake City, Utah, 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.

The gallery hosts exhibitions by Utah artists and works from the State Fine Art Collection. The Rio & Alice Galleries were established as a free service to Utah artists and surrounding communities. These venues allow emerging artists, professional artists, and curators to collaborate in the process of exhibition-making as well as engage the community through thoughtful and innovative art-making and dialogue.

Notice: The Glendinning Mansion is currently undergoing exterior and landscape renovations due for completion in late September. The Alice Gallery is open, but parking is limited in the north lot. Visitors should access the gallery through the north door via the sidewalk.

Recent is an exhibition of works that highlights acquisitions into the State of Utah Alice Merrill Horne Art Collection from the past five years.

Artists include Anna Campbell Bliss, Pam Bowman, Al Denyer, Shane Deeter, Cara Despain, McGarren Flack, Robert Maryboy, Megan Gibbons, Juan Harrison, Ranch Kimball, Ralph H. Schofield, Suzanne Simpson, and Florence Ware, among others. These works have yet to be shown in public venues since their acquisition. They range from the 1930s to present day and include paintings, sculptures, and mixed media works.

Utah is home to the first state-funded arts council in the nation, founded in 1898 and now known as the Utah Division of Arts & Museums. State Rep. Alice Merrill Horne founded the agency based on visual art collecting, exhibitions, and educational programs. Since that time, the state has continued to acquire artworks with the goal of supporting the careers of Utah artists and building a collection of the state’s artistic heritage. The Fine Art Collection now includes over 1,400 works of art in addition to actively maintained Public Art and Folk Art collections. This collection can be searched online at
