Discovering Art: Kayenta Art Village

In this series, we would like to invite you along as we explore the art scene in the St. George area. With so much natural beauty in the landscape, it should come as no surprise that talented artists of many disciplines have chosen to call this corner of Utah “home”. Kayenta Art Village out in Ivins is a great place to start your exploration of our art scene for the simple reason that so much art resides all together in this amazing setting.

Throughout the art village, you can browse through fine art galleries, visit working art studios and enjoy a glass of wine or beert with top-rated cuisine at Xetava Gardens Cafe. If you plan ahead, you may even be able to catch a performance at the Center for the Arts and Theatre.

Great Variety

This art village is a feast for your eyes. Each gallery has its own identity and focus. Some like Mystic Canyon Light Gallery comprised work by only one artist while other galleries exhibited the works of over 100 different artists, most of them being local. What’s truly special about this art village is that you’ll have the ability to talk with the actual artist and hear their passion and love for their work.

See Artists at Work

There was more than just items to purchase at these galleries. Some of the shops are actually studios for resident artists. They co-op and take turns producing their amazing art right before your eyes. You’ll get to see different artisits create their paintings, pottery, sculptures and more. Seeing someone actually working the paint brush on canvas and watching their work come to life is worth the trip out there all by itself.

Whether you are interested in the artistic process or want to pick up a beautiful piece of art to remember your visit here, the Kayenta Art Village offers something for everyone. It’s also a place that you’ll find yourself returning to each time you visit Greater Zion.
