Utah Plein Air Artists: Expanding Horizons

Utah has long been a beautiful land capturing the attention of plein air artists from all over the world. Landscape art, harnessing the unique images of Utah can be found on the walls of homes, galleries, offices and other buildings everywhere.

Even though our Utah plein air artists need not travel far from home for inspiration, there is an importance in getting out of one's immediate environment to experience other cultures and views and to experience the reset and recharge of painting internationally.

This exhibition “Utah Plein Air Artists: Expanding Horizons” curated by Shari Lyon will highlight some of the best in Utah plein air artists, and explore what it looks like to get out of their familiar surroundings and experience the world through the eyes of an artist.

The exhibit includes artworks by Margaret Blake, David Dibble, Kerri Hammond, David Koch, Shanna Kunz, Trijsten Leach, Trish Melander, Steve McGinty, Michelle Nixon, Ken Spencer, Kathryn Stedham, Tyler Swain, Bryan Taylor, Brian Thayne, Ellie Wilson, and Jane Anne Woodhead
