The Brown Art Gallery announces its Grand Opening Celebration to be held April 9. The Gallery is located in the historic district of Springville at 274 South Main in the recently restored building that was destroyed by fire in 2017. The Brown Art Gallery is sponsored by VIP ARTS, a non-profit art foundation with all profits awarded to charitable causes such as the Primary Children’s Hospital.

The Gallery is managed and operated by artists W. Bill Brown and his wife Marilyn, longtime advocates for the artist community. “Our goal is to provide an opportunity for local artists to display their work.” Besides the work of the Browns, they are currently showing the works of painters: Springville artist Linda Paulsen and Payson artists Rebecca Peery and Barbara Ward.

Barbara Ward is a painter of still life and landscapes. Her work has been shown in exhibits throughout Utah and has been purchased by private art collectors.

The gala celebration begins with a ribbon cutting by the Springville Mapleton Chamber of Commerce at noon on April 9 and will continue through the months of April and May. There will be an artist reception on April 9 from 7:00-9:00 p.m.
