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 and 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.
Architecture of Place
July 15 – September 9, 2016
Architecture of Place takes a look at depictions of various structures and environments highlighted in the State of Utah Fine Art and Folk Art Collection.
While some works in this exhibition depict Western or Utah specific locales such as Ada Rigby’s papercut of the Salt Lake Temple, or Leconte Stewart’s Cabin in the Hills, others such as Moishe Smith’s rendering of Jerusalem and Karl Pace’s Desert Town at Dusk take the viewer to more distant locations. Other works push the boundaries of real or concrete locations and structures and call into question notions of home or place. Works such as David Brothers’ Aydr presents a fictitious structure that takes on a fantastical tone with its distorted scale and precarious construction. Heidi Moller Somsen’s ceramic work of a small house titled Columbary conjures up ideas of home and final resting places.
Architecture of Place includes works from the State of Utah Fine Art Collection and Folk Art Collection. It features artists including David Brothers, Daniel Everett, Andrea Jensen, LeConte Stewart, Ada C. Irvine, Jeronimo Lozano, Mary H. Teasdel, Heidi Moller Somsen and others. Works range from paintings, printmaking, photography, and sculpture.
