Seven downtown venues will participate in this month’s art walk event, according to a news release from organizers. Exhibits will range from acrylic landscapes to fine art photography, with a wide variety of media on display. The art walk also marks the conclusion of the 2013 Plein Air Moab open-air painting festival.
The Moab Arts and Recreation Center, at 111 East 100 North, will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday to display the paintings and drawings of more than 100 plein air artists. The works were all created within 50 miles of downtown Moab throughout the five-day festival.
Also at the October art walk, the Edge Gallery, 137 North Main St., will exhibit fine art landscape photography by Bret Edge. Each photograph is presented as a canvas wrap or archival plaque mount in the open, contemporary gallery space.
Art Walk’s newest venue, Triassic, at 7 N. Main, will exhibit a maple table created by the Triassic crew. The table is made from a root-ball that was salvaged from the site of Helen M. Knight Elementary School. The maple-root table was cut by chainsaw, routed and hand-sanded to a fine finish.
The Framed Image, at 59 E. Center St., will display acrylic landscapes by husband and wife Mark Knudsen and Leslie Thomas. Knudsen’s and Thomas’ art often focuses on the “unappreciated badlands, the odd and the beautiful.”
At The Overlook Gallery, 83 E. Center St., a working artist studio and gallery, James McKew and Tim J Morse will be showing studio work and landscape paintings created, en plein air, in the Moab area and Grand Canyon National Park.
The Museum of Moab, 118 E. Center St., will present “Rocks and Rock Stars” an electric combination of natural vistas and the excitement of Rock and Roll icons in this collaborative exhibit featuring the photography of Tom Till, Dan Norris and Suzan Taylor.
Artwork by John Scofield will be featured at Moonflower Market, 39 East 100 North,
For those who are unable to attend the Oct. 12 art walk event, there are still opportunities to view the displays. Most exhibits will be available for viewing throughout the month of October during regular hours at each of the art walk venues, organizers said.
