EPHRAIM—The Granary Art Center in Ephraim has announced three new exhibitions.

Beginning on Oct. 5 and running until Jan. 27, 2017, the art gallery will host “Tourists of the New Sublime,” the work of Trent Alvey and Andrew Rice, curated by Scotti Hill; “40 Moons,” the work of artist Elizabeth Stone; and “Interstices,” by artist Stephanie Leitch.

An opening reception for the new exhibitions will be held on Oct. 17 from 6-8 p.m. at 86 N. Main Street, in Ephraim.

According to Amy Jorgensen, co-director of the Granary Art Center, Trent Alvey and Andrew Rice investigate themes of vastness, isolation and mankind’s mark on the landscape with their exhibition “Tourists of the New Sublime.”

Building upon a series of local exhibitions for each artist, “Tourists of the New

Sublime” marks the first time the artists have exhibited together.

Elizabeth Stone’s “40 Moons” is intended to be an artistic expression that relates to her mother’s struggle with Parkinson’s disease to the waxing and waning of the moon. The exhibit is designed to illustrate the last 40 months of her mother’s life.

“Interstices,” by artist Stephanie Leitch uses string to showcase light and abstract imagery, Jorgensen says.  Projected imagery, such as religious art, is intermingled with the suspended string in Leitch’s art installation.

Exhibitions are supported in part by Ephraim City and Utah Arts and Museums, with funding from the State of Utah and the National Endowment for the Arts.
