ST. GEORGE — The Sears Art Museum Gallery at Dixie State University presents “Ron Larson: His 40-Year Artistic Odyssey,” on display from Oct. 16 through Jan. 8, 2021.
Larson paints what he feels. With an art career spanning more than 40 years, his philosophy is that everything presents itself as art. His bold and exquisite paintings of the Southwest capture emotions of this land.
“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,” he said. “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.”
Also showing in the Eccles Fine Art Grand Foyer will be “Photography: Adam Elliot and Tom Forsythe.”
The Sears Art Museum Gallery is open to the public Monday-Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; closed weekends and school holidays. Admission is free.
