Sears Art Museum Features “Utah North to South” By G. Russell Case

By Lauren Larson

With his deep connections within the plein air and landscape art communities, G. Russell Case has received a lifetime of prestigious awards and has been featured in reputable galleries and museums. Born and raised in Brigham City, Utah and attending Utah State University in Logan, Utah, his art speaks directly to the rural, Utah-lived experience.

The Sears Art Museum, located in the Eccles Fine Arts Center, will be featuring the beautiful artwork of G. Russell Case in his show, “Utah North to South”, a thirty year retrospect of field work and studio paintings of Utah. The show will run from July 15 to September 2. We invite you to come and enjoy the new and past work of G. Russell Case while enjoying the beauty of Southern Utah.

The museum also will be featuring The Besendorfer Ranch Project by Theresa Otteson and Sherry Rauch in the Eccles Grand Foyer. The Besendorfer Ranch in Midway, Utah is a “museum” of old buildings stocked with thousands of unique objects that connect us to the past and tell stories of times that were much different than our own. Times when people had less things, thought more about their purchases, and were more connected to the items they did buy. When Theresa Otteson and Sherry Rauch felt a connection to the ranch, they went to work. The exhibit tells the Besendorfer story through paintings, etchings and stereoscope photos they took of the ranch.

The museum is hosting a free Meet the Artist Talk with G. Russell Case on the opening night, July 15 at 6:00 p.m., which will be followed by an artist reception from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.

Admission to the museum is free, which is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and is closed on weekends and holidays. For more information, please visit
