NEWS: “People. Places. Time” Exhibition Opens in Alice Merrill Horne Gallery

SALT LAKE CITY— Utah Arts & Museums announces the opening of the exhibition “People. Places. Time: Photographs from the Collection” in the Alice Merrill Horne Gallery, located inside the Glendinning Mansion. The show runs from July 20 to September 7, 2012, and gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The Glendinning Mansion is located at 617 E. South Temple in Salt Lake City.

The exhibition features photographs from the State Fine Art Collection. The photographs, primarily taken between the 1970s and 1990s, range from documentary to a more formal language of art-making and composition. “A dialogue between images takes shape through visual symbols and cues amongst private moments, anonymous places and familiar sentiments,” said Margaret Hunt, Director of Utah Arts & Museums. “This creates a rich vocabulary for narrative interpretation. Inherent in the works is a strong sense of time, age and the spaces where they occur.”

“People. Places. Time” features works by Barbara Richards, Barclay W. Hastings, Bonnie F. Schenkenberg, Craig Law, Fred Wright, Jerry Fagerlund, John Schaefer, John Telford, Kent Miles, Kip Harris, Kris D. Garlick, Richard Burton, Rock Thompson, Scot Smith, Scott Peterson and Vinnie Fish.

The historic Glendinning Mansion, which houses the Alice Merrill Horne Gallery, is also home to the main offices of Utah Arts & Museums. The gallery is named after Alice Merrill Horne, founder of the Utah Arts Council.
