George Smith Dibble: A Revolutionist for Modern Art in Utah

May 12 – June 30, 2018


George Dibble was a painter, teacher, and art critic who, throughout his career, greatly influenced numerous artists and students. He took his first art class through the mail from a Cleveland cartoonist and caricaturist. In 1926, he received his teaching certificate from the University of Utah and taught elementary school for two years. Dibble then returned to the University for additional classes in 1928. 

Dibble continued his education at Columbia University by receiving his Bachelor of Arts in 1938, and, in 1940, his Master of Arts. While at Columbia, Dibble was influenced by several artists and styles including Cézanne and the Cubism movement.

In 1949, he was promoted to associate professor at the University of Utah, and, in 1950, became a visiting professor for summer sessions at the College of Southern Utah (now Southern Utah University). Dibble was a member of the first Modern Artists of Utah and participated in an exhibition and helped write a formal statement to the public, both intended to increase the understanding and acceptance of modern art in Utah.

Gallery Talk

A Legacy of Love: The Thread that Binds Us — September 19 - November 11, 2017

This exhibit features the fashion designs of Eletra Casadei and her impact on the theatrical design and costumes of SUU Department of Theatre Arts & Dance. Casadei was an innovative and favored designer generating buzz with her TD4 (To Die For) prom dress designs created with teenage girls' desires in mind, "prom parties" to kick off the fashion season, first-of- its-kind fashion videos showcasing her elegant gowns and original beaded and lace fabric designs. Her Casadei line embodied Eletra's true fashion philosophy; to create a sense of Hollywood Glamour that was affordable and made every woman feel beautiful.

Eletra passed away from brain cancer in 2008 leaving behind her fashion label and a studio stocked full of exquisite items. Eletra's sister, Andrea, has donated these items that include yards and yards of stunning fabric and trim, bins of Eletra's originally designed beaded fabrics and appliques, industrial sewing machines and equipment, a vast collection of fashion history books, and boxes of sewing notions to the SUU Department of Theatre Arts & Dance. Over the last five years, students have been able to design and construct costumes beyond what would have been possible on a typical university production budget. Their designs from these donations are also on display to honor the contributions and legacy of Eletra and Andrea Casadei.

During the summer of 1967, thousands of people descended on San Francisco to play, party and protest. This event became known as The Summer of Love, and was a gathering eclipsed by Woodstock in 1969.

This exhibition pays tribute to the happenings on the 50th anniversary of the summer. The posters that will be on display capture the spirit of the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Originally collected by Scott Jones, and bequeathed to SUMA by Jimmie Jones, this collection of posters celebrates the music of the era as performed at Bill Graham's Fillmore West. A mile from the original San Francisco Fillmore Auditorium, Fillmore West opened in July, 1968 and closed three years later. During that time, it was home to a wide variety of music often advertised by custom designed posters.

The selected twenty posters are to provide insight into the variety of performers who graced the stage of Fillmore West as well as the delightful artistry of the poster designs.

March 23 - April 29, 2017 - SUU Senior Bachelor of Fine Arts Exhibit

Senior BFA Exhibit

This senior capstone exhibition showcases the culmination of the undergraduate art studio experience for 27 students.

This exhibit will include work from the different artistic disciplines: art education, graphic design, ceramics/sculpture, illustration, photography, and painting/drawing/printmaking.

As part of an artist's learning, they study the human figure to learn how to best represent the human form in two- and three-dimensional art. A few pieces of student art on display in this exhibit offer a presentation of the nude human figure in their work. We encourage concerned patrons to view the exhibit before bringing children into the museum.


April 3 - April 29, 2017 - Abstract

Abstract Student Exhibit

Abstract is a special exhibit featuring new artwork from SUU's Department of Art & Design ART-4500 student studio artists.

Andrew Marvick's ART-4500 Special Projects course encourages students to explore special areas of art and design studio practices. This semester's course was designed to follow a chronological path from western painting's first abstract experiments to the art world's current trends through a style called "process painting." Moving through the years from 1900 to 2010, each section of the special projects course moved the students through different artistic styles such as fauvism, nonobjective expressionism, cubism, orphism, minimalism, and abstract expressionism. This approach to art led students to realize that a display of skill would not be particularly beneficial for them in this course and allowed them to explore their own artistic voice.

January 12 - February 1, 2017 - The Art of Travel

Courtesy of Modern West Fine Art in Salt Lake City

"Western Therapy was born out of the realization that we all need to be reminded that the big picture is indeed big, and we are indeed small. Feeling significantly insignificant is the west's wonderful way of renewing our sense of wow and wonder, while simultaneously making life's trials and tribulations conveniently vanish from our consciousness....Long story short, each of the magical western places I've chosen to paint have worked their western magic on me. My aim and my hope is that my Western Therapy paintings will have a similar effect on you." For more information about Kevin Kehoe, visit Modern West Fine Art's website.
