This spring Ephraim will be home to a new art exhibition space. The Granary Art Center will feature a new exhibition space beginning Friday April 4. This new art space will be located in the historic Relief Society Building.
The center is co-founded and co-directed by Amy Jorgensen and Kelly Brooks, both of whom work at Snow College in the art department. In the past year, the center has played host to various programs, including Art in the Dark, free art classes for children and families, and the popular Workshop Wednesdays.
Kelly Brooks, co-director of the Granary Art Center explains, “Granary Art Center is a contemporary art space dedicated to exhibitions and education; it will serve as an anchor for artistic activity in the Sanpete County community.”
Sanpete County has always been home to a variety of artists and different art styles. This new center will help to bring local artists together with artists from around the world to show their stuff. Amy Jorgensen, co-founder, says the Center’s focus for exhibitions “is to show local, regional, and international artists that pay particular attention to place and community.”
