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.

En Plein Air: Levi Jackson & Adam Bateman 

Jan 20 – March 10, 2017

Please join us for a Gallery Stroll opening reception January 20th from 6-9 p.m.

Adam Bateman and Levi Jackson, in collaboration, have made 60 paintings en plein air as a performative act, returning them to their forgotten foundation in the western landscape. Having both grown up and lived in rural areas of the West, both Jackson and Bateman kicked against the tradition of landscape painting as the defining characteristic of western art’s historical significance and culture. For this exhibition they have traveled headfirst into seeing the landscape through painting’s eyes.

Location & Hours

Rio Grande Depot, 300 South Rio Grande Street (455 West), Salt Lake City; 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday – Friday
