Moab’s Art Walk will be held this month on Nov. 8 Local and regional artists will be on hand to discuss their art at participating galleries, and the November Art Walk will feature a wide variety of art, including oil paintings, ceramics, photography, and handcrafted jewelry.

At this month’s Art Walk, the Tom Till Gallery, 61 N. Main, will hold its first-ever sale on prints in stock.

In April 1908, through the newly established Antiquities Act, President Theodore Roosevelt signed a proclamation declaring Natural Bridges National Monument as the first National Park Service unit in Utah. In September, artists from throughout the Southwest put their brushes and pallets to the test to produce artwork in honor of Natural Bridges. The Museum of Moab, 118 E. Center, will host the winning works from this contest from November until Dec. 13.

The Overlook Gallery, 83 E. Center, will feature a new exhibit from award-winning illustrator and painter Chloe Hedden. Hedden – whose projects include a collaboration with Terry Tempest Williams on the book “The Illuminated Desert” - returns to Moab with a show of recent paintings revealing her inspiration through expressive brushstrokes of glowing color.

The Framed Image Fine Art Gallery, 59 E. Center, presents new works by local sculptor and craftsman Scott Anderson. Using native stone, hand-quarried and carried out of the backcountry, Anderson draws on existing forms and patterns to create unique, stone abstractions.

Cat’s Lair Collection Art Gallery, located in the Eddie McStiffs Plaza at No. 3, will exhibit paintings by Gordon Talley, and jewelry by Ester Ghillany. For one more month the gallery will also display sculptures by Andrea Metz.

The Western Image, 16 West 100 North, will feature works by Moab artist Page Holland. On display will be new paintings depicting scenes of the Green and Colorado rivers. A new set of giclee prints on canvas will also be available.

Photographs by Kate O’Shaughnessy will be on display at Moonflower Market, 39 East 100 North. O’Shaughnessy says she loves to take her camera wherever her heart and legs can carry her, and she shares the beauty she finds through her images.

Throughout November, in conjunction with the Moab Arts and Recreation Center’s annual fund-raiser, The Mystery Dinner Theater, the MARC’s guest artists will be showcasing their works. The artists on exhibit during the November Art Walk will be part of the mystery dinner theater’s “quick draw” art auction. The MARC is located at 111 E. 100 North

Eklecticafe, 352 North Main St., will present Chad Niehaus’ latest works – a series of linoleum block prints inspired by the artwork and spirit of Everett Ruess.

“You Can Leave Your Hat On,” a new show of figure studies by local artist Michael Kaniecki, is on display this month at the Healing Arts Center at 50 E. Center St. The drawings, some from the artist’s personal collection, will be featured throughout the month of November.

The November Art Walk will be held Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m. For more information, visit the Art Walk website at www.moabartwalk.com.
