The exhibition is a small survey of images created by Utah artists over the past sixty years. Limited in scope, one may nonetheless discover something about local traditions and aesthetic values front the landscape, still-life, figurative and nonobjective work included. here. For example, Utah has not been completely isolated from the larger art world as both non-Utahns and its own citizens often claim. While this region was geographically remote from East Coast and European art centers, Utah artists made contact with New York and Paris beginning in the nineteenth century and established a pattern of such study for subsequent generations. The result was that new ideas and ways of working were regularly imported. Some ideas and techniques found read acceptance (Impressionism), while others encountered hard resistance (modernism). Historically, this very tension in Utah between an essentially conservative community and the ever-present forces of change has kept dialogue on the arts lively. Permanent Collection.
