Spotlighting the natural wonders that can be found in southern Utah as well as showcasing the design skills and imaginative perspective of SUU's most talented designers, the contemporary landscape photography and publications classes have partnered to produce two very different and original exhibits, opening in the Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery Tuesday, January 11 and running through January 29.

"Other Lands: The Nature of Art" offers a unique chance to see two coordinating student-produced exhibits in the Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery.

"Other Lands" features three sculptural installations from SUU's contemporary landscape photograph class, which examine the ideas of memory, physical and perceptual existence, and interaction between the landscape and humans.

Additionally, Students from the publication design class created a unique book design, photographed in various southern Utah wilderness settings and based on Lewis Carroll's beloved children's classic Alice in Wonderland. The catalog reflects the Wonderland provided by Southern Utah's extraordinary nature experience.

Reproductions of the books are available for purchase, and all proceeds will benefit the National Parks Conservation Fund.

"Other Lands," part of the Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery Nature of Art exhibit, is made possible with funding from the SUU Outdoor Initiative Fund.

The Braithwaite Gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday, from noon to 7 p.m. Admission is free and the General Public is welcome.

Others Lands is a student produced exhibit.

Additional information about this exhibit is available online or by calling 435.586.5432.
