Fairview Museum hosting ‘Artwalk’ for Pioneer Days

FAIRVIEW—To kick off Pioneer Days, the Fairview Museum is hosting its fourth annual “Utah’s Beauty and Heritage Artwalk.”

According to Donna Seager, museum spokesperson, the event will begin with a reception and red carpet ribbon cutting on Friday, July 23 from 3-5 p.m. The Artwalk will be on exhibit until Saturday, Aug. 7.

Artists are allowed to show up to two art pieces per category (no larger than 24” x 30” including frame) and they must include a wire for hanging, Seager said. Art must represent an authentic Utah landmark, scene, historical place, thing or person.

Cash awards will be awarded for first and second place; ribbons will given for honorable mention. There are three categories: acrylic/oil, watercolor and photography. Because many children attend, art submitted needs to be family friendly, Seager said.

Registration will be at the Fairview Museum, 85 N. 100 East, between noon and 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 17 and Monday, July 19. There is an entrance fee of $5 per piece.

Artists will be allowed to list their artwork for sale, Seager said. For questions or to reserve space, call Donna Seager at 801-699-6872.
