Downtown Moab’s art scene is warming up this month, with eight venues showcasing local artists’ creativity during Moab ArtWalk on Saturday, June 13, from 6 to 9 p.m.
The Moab Arts and Recreation Center at 111 E. 100 North will be featuring Daniel Johnson’s artwork. Johnson’s paintings represent the supernatural energy of the landscape around us. His art often abstracts a sense of reality, defies natural laws, and reminds the viewer of depth, spirit and impermanence.
Bret Edge is a professional landscape and adventure photographer who is based in Moab. He and his wife own The Edge Gallery at 137 N. Main St.
Gallery Moab at 87 N. Main St. will have an accomplished artist in Sandi Snead as the guest artist for June. Featured gallery artists for ArtWalk are Victoria Fugit and Mary Collar. Both are accomplished pastel artists. Collar’s landscapes are known for the dramatic use of color and strong contrasts. Fugit paints sweeping landscapes and is becoming known for her depictions of animals, wild and domestic.
At 7 N. Main St., Triassic features local artisans who create unique and functional art out of recycled wood from Triassic’s tree service, jewelry from local stones and fine home furnishings out of boulders. Come see the latest pecan wood bowls and petrified wood pendants and take a piece of Moab with you.
Framed Image Fine Art at 59 E. Center St. presents abstract works by Karen Barnett. Her paintings are about seeking balance through the use of color, line and texture. The finished piece is an arrangement of oil, wax, pigment and pencil. The process of applying material can be either meditative and slow, or spontaneous. A very yin and yang process.
Visit the “Primitive Future,” MIK’s newest body of work, at Eddie McStiff’s, 57 S. Main St. Found, salvaged and unearthed desert relics are reassembled into a spellbinding mix of robots, genies, angels and more. The first 25 souls in the door will receive free prints.
Other ArtWalk participants include the Museum of Moab at 118 E. Center St. and Moonflower Community Cooperative at 39 E. 100 North.
