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.

Open Call for Art Submissions for "Fresh Paint:"

Pioneer Theatre Company’s Loge Gallery has hosted an Open Call to provide an opportunity for local artists to share their recent artwork with the theatre community. The juried exhibit, called "Fresh Paint," will be on display during Pioneer Theatre Company’s production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, running September 12 through September 27, 2014. 

Submissions of artwork will be accepted in the lobby of Pioneer Theatre Company, at Simmons Pioneer Memorial Theatre, 300 South 1400 East on the University of Utah campus, on Saturday, September 6, 2014 from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m.

Nearly all mediums will be considered for exhibition. We cannot accept jewelry or art displays that are larger than 7 feet (in either direction). All art must be prepared for display, including hanging devices if necessary.
Artists must be 18 or older.
If work is made available for sale, PTC earns a 30% commission. Please set your prices accordingly. Artists must provide a W-9 form to PTC if your work is for sale.
