Trent Thursby Alvey is a mixed-media artist who uses painting, sculpture, and light and sound technique in the creation of works that have been called both pop and contemporary. Alvey earned a BFA at Westminster College in 1986, where she studied with Don Doxey, after finishing a degree in Graphic Design.
Alvey’s sculptural work is included in the University of Utah's Museum of Fine Art and in Salt Lake County’s permanent art collections. She was a recipient of the Salt Lake City, Mayors Awards in 2011 and by Artists of Utah, 15-Bytes as one of Utah's Most Influential Artists in 2013. She has exhibited in significant one-person and group shows including a 1992 exhibit called Out of the Land, which traveled to The National Museum for Women in the Arts in Washington, DC in 1993.
Alvey has been included in both editions of Artists of Utah written by Robert S. Olpin, William C. Seifrit, and Vern Swanson (last edition 1999, published by Gibbs Smith Publisher). She was chosen as one of twenty Utah artists to be part of the Women Beyond Borders exhibit at Art Access Gallery during the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. The Utah exhibit became part of an international collection including work from women in 33 countries. Her work is also included in Utah Artists Project/ J. Williard Marriott Library’s (University of Utah) digitized collections of selected Utah artists.
Dolores Chase, gallery owner and art collector, regarding Alvey’s work, “She has done many brave and ambitious pieces over the years, one of which I own. She continues to grow and experiment—often combining disciplines in enigmatic ways, one of them being her wave theory/physics installations in steel and neon. She takes risks and always creates compelling and thought-provoking work.”
