Gallery Features SUU Faculty Perspective on Zion

Published: February 08, 2009 | Category: Arts

The Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery, at Southern Utah University is exhibiting the most recent pieces of art created by the Art and Design Faculty. This artwork is the creative response by the Art and Design Faculty, to commemorate the centennial year of Zion National Park. This exhibit runs February 5-March 14, 2009 and is located on the ground floor of the Braithwaite Liberal Arts Center. The public is invited to the opening reception is February 5, 2009 at 7:00 p.m. 

Each Art and Design faculty member created a single new work in response to some aspect of Zion National Park. The exhibit encompasses a variety of media, including pottery by Susan Harris, pastel work by Arlene Braithwaite and landscape painting by Eric Brown. Part of the universal appeal of the park is that its scale is so vast and its contents so various, that each visitor finds something of personal significance to take back from the journey; each of these artists has done the same. 

The Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday, Noon to 7:00 p.m., and is located on the ground floor of the Braithwaite Liberal Arts Center building on the east end of the SUU campus. Admission is free. For more information, contact the Gallery at 435-586-5432 or visit our website 
The Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery is supported in part by the Friends of the Braithwaite Gallery, The Utah Arts Council, with funding from the State of Utah and the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art.
