Wide-Open Spaces Art Exhibit

ENDLESS HORIZONS

Vast, flat, almost empty expanses of desert plains and highland plateaus are distinctive elements of the Southwestern landscape. Many regional artists attempted to portray this quality of almost infinite space by emphasizing unbroken horizontal lines across their compositions. While more traditional landscape paintings often include clumps of trees on both sides of the canvas to frame the view and create a sense of completeness, the paintings in this gallery dispense with those framing elements to create a sense of incompleteness—a feeling that the scene extends far beyond the frame.

TOWERING MOUNTAINS

Have you ever taken a snapshot of an awe-inspiring mountain only to find it looking small and insignificant in your picture? How is it possible to capture its size and grandeur in a small image? Paintings in this gallery show how some Southwestern artists met this challenge by crowding the canvas and cropping the view. In some cases, a mountain peak almost grazes the top of the painting, and in others the sheer face of a cliff fills most of the background, leaving only a small patch of sky. These approaches imply that the subject is just too large to fit inside the frame.

Old Time Post Office, Store, Home & School Exhibit

Gale Center of History & Culture Museum in South Jordan, Utah

School
The school is built to look as if we are ready for a day of learning at the turn of the twentieth century, about 1900. It resembles the one built at approximately 104th S. and 1300 West.

Home
This house is built to look like the home of Byrum Henry Beckstead, one of the first settlers in South Jordan and was built especially for children. In it they (you) have the opportunity to feel what it would have been like to live back in the early days of South Jordan.

Store
There were several stores in early South Jordan. The first large store was the Jordan Mercantile run by Joseph Holt. It was located at 10346 South 1300 West and was built about 1895. It carried a full line of household and farm items. It also housed an office, dance hall and stage. The wonderful building here in the History Center is a combination of two later stores that were important places in the lives of the early settlers starting around 1930.

Post Office
In early days mail delivery was very different from today. Mail to this area of the Salt Lake Valley was delivered once a week to the city of Sandy. One postman, or mail carrier, then delivered mail to the South Jordan, Bennion, West Jordan, Riverton, Draper, Midvale and Crescent cities. Then back to Sandy he went! He carried it all on his back in 2 bags.

Terrific Tuesdays – Monthly at 6 pm
Look no further than the Gale Center of History and Culture on Tuesday evenings for exciting family fun activities! We will have arts & crafts, guest speakers, movies, games, demonstrations etc.

Trees of Diversity Exhibit

For seven years the Utah Cultural Celebration Center has featured a holiday tree exhibit that overflows from the Celebration Gallery, and throughout the entire facility. Each year the number of groups involved, including arts, cultural, non-profit and commercial, has grown and grown. The purpose of this exhibit is to bring the community together in the celebration of various holiday traditions not only from different countries but from different religious backgrounds and various family or community traditions. The tree is used as a sign of friendship and is used to display the art and artifacts representing the richness of our community traditions.Trees of Diversity, Utah Cultural Celebration Center, West Valley Utah

This year the Trees of Diversity exhibition will have over 25 trees and holiday scenes created by various community and ethnic groups. Included are Amish, Honduran, American Indian, Chilean, Peruvian and other South American countries, Mexico, Japan, Canada, Africa, Hawaii, Scotland and others. The Cultural Center will also be displaying artifacts and other historical items from around the world, along with art pieces, nativities, nutcrackers, gingerbread houses, special holiday “store window” scenes, sculptures and wreaths. Two special displays will highlight holiday traditions in both the Jewish and Muslim communities, and the 100+ Dolls from Around the World collection will once again be on display.

Helping kick off the exhibit is SongFest! a night of musical entertainment for everyone. Scheduled to perform are Christmas Bell Ringers, The Beehive Statesmen, The Salt Lake Men’s Choir and the West Valley Symphony. The magical sights and sounds of the holidays are sure to get the whole family ready to celebrate this special time of year, and to learn about other holiday traditions from around the world.
