Kolene Granger’s Garden of Gourds

The St. George Art Museum in St. George, Utah, will present Kolene Granger’s Garden of Gourds from April 8, 2005 through June 30, 2005. The exhibit features a variety of her creations in the Legacy Gallery.

Kolene Granger’s interest in gourd carving started four years ago. Formerly the Superintendent of Schools in St. George, Granger’s interest in art was latent until a friend presented her with a baseball sized coyote gourd that they then carved. Mosaics and Native American imagery inspire her. While she continues to experiment, she has shown in the St. George Art Museum’s Regional exhibit for 4 years.

Granger is convinced that everyone has art somewhere within them, but that time, experience, and encouragement are needed for it to blossom.

On Thursday, April 21 at 7pm at the St. George Art Museum, she will present a Conversation about her art as part of the 3rd Thursday series. The exhibit opening for the Public is Friday, April 8 from 6 to 8pm. Subsequent Museum hours are Tuesday – Saturday from 10 to 5 for the duration of the exhibit. The St. George Art Museum is located at 47 E. 200 N. in St. George, UT 84770 (directly across from the Main Post Office at the corner of Main and 200 North).
