Bill and Marilyn Brown
July 2 - August 30

Bill worked in business for fifty-two years but was always interested in the arts. He graduated from BYU in Theater and Media Arts and eventually channeled his love of arts into visual art.

"I love to explore imaginative ideas, bright colors, and abstract dimensions in my space scapes. The colorful vistas that Utah offers are awe-inspiring to an artist. I love to paint the red rock country. With my "painting" eyes I view the world around me with a new vision."





Marilyn McMeen Brown, born and raised in Denver, Colorado, has lived most of her life in Utah. Her years in the west have fueled her interest in western history, fiction, and the visual arts. Most of her seventeen published novels reveal Utah historical experiences. She has won state and local awards for her writings, and now for her paintings.

The greatest challenge of her life was raising Bill’s five motherless children when his wife passed away in 1975. Now those six children have produced sixteen grandchildren, making it an adventure to keep up with many birthdays, weddings, missions and seven great grandchildren.

Some of the most satisfying moments of her life have been others’ generous recognition for accomplishments. She won a first place novel from the state for ROAD TO COVERED BRIDGE, a lifetime achievement award from the Whitney Foundation, and, along with her husband Bill, a “Star” award for a lifetime achievement in the arts from the Scera Foundation in 2018. Her paintings have garnered several awards.


Charles Gilliam
June 4 - August 26

Recently moved from Texas, Charles Gilliam is an illustrator and story-teller with a Bachelor of Visual Arts from Georgia State University. He began to utilize colored pencil as his main medium in 2010 and has found it to be an exciting medium that allows him to execute his subjects in a way that catches the imagination.

"As for my subject, I have always been drawn towards the cowboy. Growing up in the fifties, I was always watching the westerns on TV. I loved their way of looking at the world. They were honest and true to the Code of the West. They were strong in their devotion to the land that they worked whether it be on the open range or in the corral. They respected the land. Sure, there were bad guys, but that only added to the image of strong, righteous men and women who understood their place in the sun. I continue to look for those characters who, to me, epitomize the West and its best."
