Council hears presentation about downtown art gallery Terra Nova


At the Council’s Mar. 18, 2014 meeting, the Council heard a presentation from David Hawkinson of Terra Nova art gallery, which is located in downtown Provo and exhibits the work of local artists.

Hawkinson’s presentation introduced Council members and the public to the art gallery, which provides emerging artists an opportunity to both exhibit their work, and provide them with valuable experience. Located at  41 West 300 North, Terra Nova began exhibiting work in 2003. Since the gallery’s opening, it has hosted more than 90 exhibitions, and included over 3,000 individual pieces of art.

Many of the exhibitions have included subject material from around Provo, and included a variety of mediums, including chalk, photography, and painting. Hawkinson said that having Provo as the center of many of these works was a great way to promote the city and familiarize residents with many prominent Provo landmarks.
