Gallery 25 is owned and operated by nine northern Utah artists. Staffed by the artists themselves, Gallery 25 enables visitors to meet and chat with the people who create the items on displays. Each artist has preferences about media, style and subject. All have a personal history of artistic development, beliefs and attitudes, about the roles of art in life, and familiarity with the challenges of creative endeavor. The artists share more than the day to day operations of Gallery 25. There is mutual assistance among the members as they grow and develop as artists and friends. "[They] entered into this venture to make a contribution not only to Historic 25th Street and downtown Ogden, but to the community at large in a spirit of civic cooperation. [They] look forward to public response and extend a warm invitation to interested persons. Come and browse, converse and share."
