Downtown merchants, the Museum of Moab, and the Moab Arts and Recreation Center will open their doors Saturday, Nov. 9 from 6-9 p.m. for the final Moab Art Walk of the 2013 season.

Local art lovers and visitors are invited to stroll through featured fine art and crafts exhibits, enjoy refreshments and meet local and visiting artists.

The Edge Gallery, 137 N. Main St., will feature fine art landscape photography by owner Bret Edge. Photographs are presented as canvas wraps or archival plaque mounts in an open, contemporary gallery space.

The Moab Art Walk’s newest venue, Triassic, at 7 N. Main St., will exhibit fine ceramics and jewelry by Grand County High School students DeAnna Irvin and Jasmine Swink. Irvin and Swink are earning money to travel to Europe next summer as part of their school’s art and language immersion program. On the night of the art walk, 20 percent of Triassic’s regular sales and all artists’ sales will go directly to help funding the students’ school trip.

On display at The Framed Image, 59 E. Center St., Michael Ashcraft’s non-objective paintings “pursue his deep absorption with the natural world.” Through them he, “calls directly on [my] emotional state of mind,” making the works as “directly expressive” as possible.

At The Overlook Gallery, 83 E. Center St., Arizona artist Rick Wheeler travels north to join two of his Moab artist friends, J. C. Borders and Tim J. Morse, for a special season finale show.

The Moab Arts and Recreation Center, located at 111 East 100 North, will present pastel paintings created by Sarah Hamingson during her stint as the 2013 Community Artist in the Parks. Moab photographer Jon Fuller also will be showing recent images.

At Moonflower Market, 39 East 100 North, children from the Moab Charter School will be displaying artwork inspired by Alexander Calder. Primary colors, simple, interesting shapes, and drawing define this show.

Most Moab Art Walk exhibits will remain on exhibit for viewing throughout the month of November during regular hours at each of the art walk venues.
