r The Springville Museum of Art and Central Bank are pleased to announce the opening of “Three-Mile Radius” and “Glimpses of Springville.” These exhibitions both focus on artists working in Springville and Mapleton and offer different perspectives on the community. Both shows will be on display June 1 through Oct. 22.
“Three-Mile Radius,” an exhibition featuring the art of Jacqui Larsen and the poetry of her husband, Utah Poet Laureate Lance Larsen, documents the people, places and things of Springville. Jacqui and Lance worked with only one rule: that their inspiration must come from what they find in the three-mile radius surrounding Jacqui’s studio. Their finds include everything from scrubby deer and cemetery angels to old marquee signs and a hut from the Topaz internment camp. In this show of poetry and paint, Jacqui and Lance sing this town of many waters.
“Glimpses of Springville” features visual artists exclusively from Springville and Mapleton. This exhibition will include works that reflect the perspective of more than 30 artists’ experiences living and working in the Springville community and will celebrate Springville and its role as Utah’s “Art City.”
These exhibitions are free and open to the public.
