PRESENTING: RON LARSON

Ron Larson paints what he feels. With an art career spanning 40+ years, his philosophy is that everything presents itself as art. His bold and exquisite paintings of the Southwest capture emotions of this land. He says, “Art, both its creation and the experience of enjoying it, is a wonder that can heal the soul.  As a landscape painter, I feel a closeness to my environment. If my art can help people to connect in a deep and meaningful way to the beauty of our natural world, hopefully they will have a greater desire to protect and preserve them. All of my art is meant for such an outcome, and I feel a great satisfaction when someone feels something from my art."​

ROUGE: UTAH WOMEN’S VOICES

This exhibit will highlight this disparity that exists between male and female artists in Utah where 60% of the artists are female but on average 70% of the artists exhibited are male. This will give Utah women artists an opportunity to share what it is like to be a woman living in Utah today. Each artist will provide a piece that discusses their view of their role as a woman.
