Alice Gallery
JUL 15 - SEPT  9, 2016

Thanks to City Weekly for this article on Architecture of Place. "Local artists have often created depictions of architecture, perhaps as a way of contemplating its effects. The state of Utah's permanent art collection includes many of these depictions, and Architecture of Place assembles 20 of these works at the Alice Gallery for a survey of the subject. And while it only features 20 pieces from a collection of over 1,400, it's nevertheless a remarkable distillation."

Architecture of Place takes a look at depictions of various structures and environments highlighted in the State of Utah Fine Art and Folk Art Collection.
