ST. GEORGE – Al Rounds will share the stories behind his paintings when he presents "Sacred Mormon Places In Art" in the St. George Tabernacle on Friday, September 17 at 7 p.m. This fireside is free, dress is casual and everyone is invited! Handicap access.
Al Rounds is known for his beautiful landscapes. His art frequently appears in the Ensign magazine and hangs on many walls worldwide: from LDS Temples, to the SLC County Building, to private homes. He uses transparent watercolors to "register a beautiful familiarity with the world we all love". His paintings speak of history revisited and of lives well-lived as they carry us over a distance of miles and years. He captures a particular reverence for the "pride of a place" by scouring back roads to search for the past.
His favorite painting is "View From Main Street," a serene, crystalline winter scene of Salt Lake City commissioned by the late entrepreneur Larry Miller. His work includes paintings of the Sacred Grove, the Susquehanna River, the Kirtland Temple, the City of Nauvoo, and more.
You are invited to view Al Round's Art Exhibit at the Temple Visitors' Center from 9 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. through Friday, September 17.
Next Fireside: Friday, September 24 – 7 p.m. – Rowland Lee – "History Comes to Life"!
