Ever looked around your house and thought , 'I could start a gallery with all this art?' Artists and collectors, alike, often share the dream of starting their own piece of  art. Local artist, Julie Dunker, did just that. Three years ago she started the aptly named 'House Gallery' in her basement. The gallery has quickly expanded beyond its small perimeters into an independent entity in downtown Salt Lake near the Green Pig Pub.

Dunker features up-and-coming, as well as established contemporary artists on both the local and national level. House Gallery is celebrating its 3rd anniversary on Friday, December 3 from 6:00-9:00 p.m., in conjunction with an artist reception for featured artist Allan Ludwig. Ludwig, a local painter, will be presenting his exhibit, "Unforgotten Realms", manipulates paint so it resembles magic marker made into free-form geometry.

House Gallery is located at 29 East 400 South.
