Loge Gallery

Fine Arts for a Fine Audience

Each show at Pioneer Theatre Company brings new artists to Simmons Pioneer Memorial Theatre’s Loge Gallery, located on the Loge level of the theatre. Our gallery features local painters, sculptors and photographers chosen by George Maxwell, PTC’s Resident Scenic Designer and Loge Gallery curator, to complement the show taking place onstage. Sometimes a pair of artists –  even a seemingly odd couple – are brought together in a way that entertains our audiences.

Often the work shown in the Loge Gallery is available for sale, and a portion of the proceeds benefit the theatre. Visit the Loge Gallery during business hours, or before the show or at intermission, and experience some of Utah’s best fine artists.


Loge Gallery Presents

Stephanie Saint-Thomas (artist’s website)

Saint-Thomas was born in Madrid, Spain to artist parents whose devotion to the arts has helped her become the accomplished artist she is today. Her early childhood was spent in Paris, where visits to the Louvre influenced her early watercolors. Her adolescence was spent in the idyllic hamlet of Valkenburg, Holland surrounded by music, poetry and art, and there developed her great appreciation of nature. Stephanie and her parents moved to Salt Lake City in 1975. While she attended the University of Utah on a theatre scholarship, the demand for her hand-painted jewelry increased, and she soon devoted herself exclusively to creating her whimsical jewelry line that was carried by Saks Fifth Avenue.  
Saint-Thomas now resides in Utah, exploring her signature, mixed-media painting style of 30 years. The luminescent quality of her paintings is achieved with opalescent powders, acrylic paints and illustrative ink linework suspended between layers of the painting. Trees and flora of the Rocky Mountains inspire her life and art. 

 

This collection will be on display during PTC’s production of “Two Dollar Bill,” January 15 through 30, 2016.
The exhibit can be experienced on the mezzanine level of the Roy W. and Elizabeth E. Simmons Pioneer Memorial Theatre. The gallery is open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday for the general public and before and after performances for ticket holders.
