Works by local and regional artists will be featured this weekend during the May 10 Moab Art Walk. Seven local shops and galleries will host exhibits and artist receptions from 6 to 9 p.m.

This month, Moonflower Market, 39 East 100 North, will feature the photography and watercolor work of Casey Montandon.

At the Moab Arts and Recreation Center, 111 East 100 North, photographs that capture patterns in nature by local artist Anna Reposa will be on display. Reposa is passionate about the diversity of color and texture in the natural world, especially when viewed up close.

Also at the MARC, Liz Quagliaroli’s landscapes, cities and social satire will be exhibited. Quagliaroli says she sometimes plans a work for months, “Its energy transforms carving, feeling, the mountains, the sky, deepness and light. My characters perform and my oil paint speaks.”   

Bret Edge’s photography will be on display at The Edge Gallery at 137 N. Main St. Edge offers a variety of unique, ready-to-hang display options including plaque mounted prints, canvas gallery wraps, glossy metal prints and face-mount acrylic prints.

At Gallery Moab, 67 N. Main St., oil paintings by local artist Page Holland will be featured. Subjects range from landscapes to contemporary and historical western paintings depicting Moab’s canyon country. The gallery will also feature works by pastel artist Larry Thomas, who “captures the life force in his subjects,” and Larry Christensen, who paints realistic landscapes and nouveau art-inspired figures in both watercolor and oils.

TRIASSIC, 7 N. Main St., will present a group of photographs by Brady Curry which are based on the concept of abstract expressionism. The collection includes a wide range of images, from the historical landscapes of Zermatt, Switzerland, to the ancient ruins of southern Utah.

Moab Classic Bike, 68 E. Center St., will exhibit works by local artist and illustrator Tim McAllister. His work includes pop culture-inspired bike-themed graphic dimensional collages.

At Sandstone Gallery, 78 N. Main St, sculptures by Danny Brown will be on exhibit. Brown “allows the stone to guide him through his sculptural expression in stone that combines Mother Nature and art in every creation.”
