Dukes Jewelers is pleased and honored to be offering Gallery Space for local artists and talent, and is taking portfolio submissions for future showings. In speaking with Mr. Holmes, the 3rd generation owner of Dukes Fine Jewelers he expressed his enthusiasm for highlighting and recognizing the “Jewels” of talent we have here in our very own city and culture.


Dukes Jewelers, on 220 South Main Street, is hosting a Gallery Night on March 16th from 6pm-8pm to introduce it’s debut Gallery Artist, Trisha Lamoreaux and invites the community to meet Trisha, learn more about her work, and she will be available for autographs.


As a “Thank You” for the past 65 years of community support, Dukes will also be having drawings for FREE jewelry, watches, gifts, door prizes and services including FREE Rhodium Plating for life and Refreshments will be served... A silent auction will be held for a signature painting of Trishas as well.


Trisha Lamoreaux was born in Provo, about 45 miles south of Salt Lake City, Utah in 1977. “I always had a fascination and appreciation for art from an early age. I recognized how fulfilling it was for me to create things and how much I enjoyed sharing it with others.”


After Graduating from Provo High School and undertaking the study of Oil Painting, she discovered her passion for IMPASTO painting, which means using a palette knife to create artwork. This style of painting is very textural and is very comparable to the depth of paint used by Van Gogh. She sells her works internationally, and has even been featured in magazines and bookcovers. She takes commissions to match any d├ęcor or preference for collectors.


While her own personal style is versatile and she has many pieces that are classic, impressionistic and Abstract, her consistency is in the art form of IMPASTO.
