September Art Walk
Saturday September 11, 2021

The Moab Museum invites community members to visit during the September Art Walk to view a pop-up exhibit interpreting prominent rock imagery sites along the Colorado River. The petroglyphs and pictographs found on canyon walls near Moab are so much more than mere decoration, they communicate messages across cultures and through time. This summer, the Museum partnered with Utah Humanities to produce a Humanities in the Wild video exploring the significance of local rock imagery sites with local archaeologist Don Montoya, and Bertram Tsavadawa, a Hopi elder from Old Oraibi on Third Mesa in Arizona. Together they discussed petroglyph and pictograph interpretations and the cultures that have thrived throughout time along water corridors. Images of petroglyphs with accompanying interpretations from this project are on view at the Museum during the month of September.

Petroglyphs accessed from the Poison Spider trailhead were interpreted by archeologist Don Montoya and Hopi elder Bertram Tsavadawa as part of a recent Humanities in the Wild project. Images of local rock imagery, as well as quotations from Montoya and Tsavadawa offering perspectives on the rock imagery, will be on view at the Museum for the September Art Walk.

Images and interpretations of the iconic Birthing Rock panel near Moab will be a part of the pop-up exhibit on view during the September Art Walk.

October Art Walk
Saturday October 9, 2021

For the October Art Walk, the Moab Museum is pleased to showcase a temporary exhibit from the Seekhaven Family Crisis and Resource Center. Seekhaven supports survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault by providing a wide range of essential services. This year, Seekhaven is celebrating their 30th anniversary, and a pop-up display on exhibit for Art Walk will feature artwork made by Seekhaven staff. As October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Seekhaven opted to honor the DVAM national theme: Mourn, Celebrate, Connect. This exhibit will recognize those we have lost to domestic violence in the state of Utah, celebrate survivors and their stories, highlight community responses and services in the community, and outline the intersectionalities of domestic violence.

Come in a vote for your favorite.

Lewis Art Williams has been enamored with the acts of creating art for over 40 years. He works in a wide variety of mediums, including oil and acrylic paints, pastels, printmaking, ceramics and sculpture. He is experienced in teaching art to a broad spectrum of students, including very young and elderly, and those with special needs. He experienced a 4 yr. apprenticeship with world renowned iconographer Br. Robert Lentz, O.F.M. He finds it a labor of love to ‘write’ these beautiful religious images in the Byzantine style. Since 2012, he has found his love of history, nature and landscape challenged by Plein Air Painting. On the eve of his 60th birthday, a powerful idea came to him as he re-evaluated his place in the world, and the status of his art career. This became the “Paint My Way ‘Cross The USA-By Bike!” adventure, where he decided to ‘rattle his cage,’ a little, to see what fell out for his ‘second half’ of life!  He and his wife left San Diego, Ca. March 1, 2021, following the Old Spanish Trail to Santa Fe, NM, then The Santa Fe Trail from there, on its bicentennial, to its origin in Franklin, Missouri, creating art daily as they cycled the country. After that, the route was more free-form till its completion in Bar Harbor, Maine August 1, 2021. The images in this show are part of the legacy of that sojourn, and I am hopeful you can connect with the experience!

November Art Walk
Saturday November 13, 2021

musem.jpg

For the November Art Walk, the Moab Museum is pleased to highlight a temporary exhibit about Hopi Katsinam culture. If you’re visiting or live in the Southwest, you’ve likely encountered brightly painted, carved figurines in gift shops. To the average non-Native, “kachina dolls” are a beautiful representation of Southwest Native American culture. To the Hopi (and Zuni) tribes, however, Katsina is a religion and a way of life. The symbolism inherent in these objects, which are commonly sold as souvenirs, is complex and dates as early as the mid-18th century. This Fall, a temporary Moab Museum exhibit and demonstrations featuring Hopi carvers offer a view into the cultural significance and artistry of  Hopi Katsinam culture. Join us at the November Art Walk for a chance to explore this new exhibition.

Bruce Hucko returns as guest artist with a series of color and black and white photographs entitled Watersong. Taken along a stretch of Mill Creek, Hucko captures the form and flow of its water and the rock that is sculpted by it.  Larry Christensen, our featured gallery member, explores impasto painting technique in his new oil landscapes.
