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.
