September art Walk
Saturday, Sept 9, 2023
Jess is a part-time artist living full-time in Moab. For the past few years she's been working on developing cheap, accessible methods for at-home intaglio printmaking with DIY art supplies and tools made from reclaimed and recycled materials. She's currently exploring the textures and layers of our local landscape through plein air and printmaking with the community artist in the parks program.
Guest Artist Nancye Culbreath, a Monticello resident, will display small oil landscapes for the month of September. Her clear complimentary colors, bold shapes, and spontaneous brushstrokes make the mountains, canyon walls and buttes come to life in her paintings.
Long time Moab resident Joanne Savoie, our Featured Artist, will show new ceramic pieces she calls 'coiled rock pots' inspired by lines of landscape and geologic imaginings. Join us in celebrating two very different but talented artists

Arch Enemies: Mayhem in Moab
Inspired by true crime procedurals and podcasts,
these portraits of the Canyonlands Solid Waste
Authority staff recast sanitation workers as detectives.
Reizman's photos illuminate the valuable community
service these community members contribute to Moab
by keeping streets clean, helping police officers track
down evidence, and eliminating dangerous fire hazards
from our environment. The project also imagines an
alternate system of law enforcement. With unlimited
access to the waste stream, unarmed
sanitation workers could be trained in forensic science to help solve crime.
