One of the most famous landscape painters in the western United States is LeConte Stewart. You do not want to miss the joint exhibit going on right now at the Church History Museum & as well at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts located at the University of Utah. The collection of paintings is incredible as well as his atmospheric painting style. Nationally known & extremebly influential this exhibit is a once in a life time not to be missed show. The exhbit runs until January 15 2012.
The next? Another joint exhibit on quite possibly my favorite Utah painter. Douglas Snow, who recently passed away. Another nationally respected artist whose body of work is inspiring & progressive. Don’t miss this either, luckily you can hit both LeConte & Doug at one of the same exhibiting locations, the Utah Museum of Fine Art at the University of Utah.
