ST. GEORGE – Join art enthusiasts in downtown St. George for an evening touring fine art galleries, museums and restaurants, the Art on Main summer gallery stroll.
The gallery stroll will be open Friday from 6-9 p.m., with opportunities to enjoy a $5 appetizer pre-party at the Painted Pony Restaurant from 4-6 p.m. and after-party with live music at George’s Corner Restaurant starting at 9 p.m. Art on Main is free for all to attend.
Featured gallery artists include painters Simon Winegar, Shanna Kunz and Laura Gourley, ceramist Brady Richardson and jewelry artist Susan Farthing Chapman. Participating galleries include Bedard Fine Art, Authentique Gallery, Split Rock Gallery, Twiggs and Moore Gallery, The Mission Gallery, Print It Shop, Wide Angle Photography and Twenty-Five Main Cafe.
Currently showing at the St. George Art Museum, the first stop on the walk, are Russian icons from the Museum of Russian Icons, “Russia In Transition” paintings by Andrew Zabla-Zabelin and works by the Utah Glass Guild. Live music by duos Beanz N’ Wheels and Seldom Scene will add to the ambience during the gallery stroll, while Dick Earl’s “Electric Whitness” blues music will entertain at the after-party.
To participate in Art on Main, begin at the St. George Art Museum, located at 48 East 200 North, at 6 p.m. Admission to the museum is waived the evening of the stroll. Make sure to pick up a free “punch card” at the museum that is marked at each gallery attended. Then, visit each of eight fine art destinations, enjoying a variety of live music, unique artwork and the opportunity to meet many local professional artists. Turn in the punch card at Twenty-Five Main Café before 9 p.m., when a drawing will be held for a piece of original artwork.
Art on Main is a nonprofit project of the Art Around the Corner Foundation and is supported in part by the City of St. George via the St. George Arts Commission. Additional information about Art on Main is available online by calling 435-627-4525.
