Carrie Trenholm,

Professor of Elementary Art Education at Southern Utah University

My connection to SUU's art gallery began in 1987 when I would walk all five of my middle school art classes across the street to the Braithwaite Gallery. In addition to wanting to try out the only elevator in town, these energetic twelve to fourteen year-olds were eager to discuss the artwork they saw. Their encounters were magical. To see Dale Chilhuly's beautiful glass sculptures up close, or learn how Sue Cotter constructed an artist book out of stones, opened their minds to new possibilities.
