FAIRVIEW—Three local artists will have their art on display at an open house on Sept. 30, as part of the Fairview Museum of History and Art’s Sanpete Artists Rotating Gallery.

Linda Leavitt of Mt. Pleasant, and Lois Anderson and Donna Seager, both of Fairview, will have their paintings on display in the gallery during the open house, which runs from 6:30 to 8 p.m..

“The museum’s Sanpete Artists Rotating Gallery is an outreach program where many of our abundant artists may have their works on display for one to two months free to the public, to view and enjoy the differing styles and media being used,” said Terry Madsen of Fairview, a museum volunteer.

The display of Sandra Johnson’s works will be coming down this week in order to prepare for the trio of Leavitt, Anderson and Seager.

According to Madsen, all three ladies were taught by other Sanpete artists, then branched out on their own.

Admission is free (but donations are welcomed). Besides mingling with three artists, guest may explore the professional gallery in the “Mammoth” Horizon Building.

The museum is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and features a gift shop, now managed by artist Wendy Hacking.
