Earlier this month, we announced the opening of St. George’s newest exhibition space, Arrowhead Gallery ETC at the city’s new arts and entertainment district on Tabernacle street anchored by the Electric Theatre. The gallery is run by the Southern Utah Art Guild as a co-op gallery for their more established artists. They also host shows at the Red Cliff Gallery in the St. George City Commons building (220 N 200 East) for all their members.
