Hepworth’s art consists of natural scenery he hoped would bring feelings of peace and tranquility to those that observe it.

Kyoung Dabell, the gallery curator, said she met Hepworth at the Dixie Invitational Art Show. Dabell said that out of all of the paintings, Hepworth’s art stood out to her the most.

Hepworth started painting when he was young. His mother was a painter and encouraged his work.

“I was one of those students that got in trouble for doodling instead of listening to the teacher,” Hepworth said. “I was always drawing or painting.” He said some of his paintings displayed only took him 30 to 40 minutes to paint.

Hepworth said his objective is to create a calming atmosphere for people to experience through his artwork.

“For me, painting is much more than just producing a pretty picture; it is creating an emotional and spiritual attachment to God’s creations,” Hepworth said.

Dabell said Hepworth’s paintings bring tranquility and can cause one to feel as if they are in the natural scene.

Dabell said the gallery is a great place for students to experience art and is one of the few fine galleries in the area we can enjoy such great art.

BYU-I students and the public are invited to observe the art 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. from Sept. 21 to Oct. 25.
