The June Moab Art Walk will take place Saturday, June 8, from 6 to 9 p.m., at a variety of galleries and downtown businesses. The event, which provides the opportunity to meet with local and visiting artists, is free of charge and open to the public.

This month, the Moab Arts & Recreation Center, (MARC), 111 East 100 North, will host a Senior Group Show.

Moonflower Market, 39 East 100 North, presents the work of native Utahn, Julia Buckwalter. Drawn to desert and mountain landscapes, Buckwalter uses oil paint, watercolor, and India ink and paints en plein air and from photographs.

The Edge Gallery, 137 N. Main St., features fine art landscape photography by Bret Edge. Each photograph is presented as a canvas wrap or archival plaque mount.

Savage Spirit!, 87 N. Main St., will exhibit the work of visiting jewelry artist, Kenny Slade. Slade creates jewelry that combines sterling silver with stones, beads and cabochons. Each piece is unique, although the theme may run through a series of creations.

At Back of Beyond Books, 83 N. Main St., the photography of Howie Garber will be on display. Garber lived in Moab as an emergency room doctor for years and has photographed for 25 years and received national and international awards for his images. His work includes photographs of wildlife, alpine scenery, and the human element. 

Framed Image Fine Art and Framing, 59 E. Center St., will showcase the work of Moab artist Logan Hansen. Hansen employs novel photography techniques to highlight the dynamic interplay of stone, sky, and life in the Canyonlands region.

Overlook Gallery, 83 E. Center St., now houses the working studios of two local landscape painters, James McKew and Tim J. Morse. Both have created new plein air paintings and some larger studio pieces for the June Art Walk exhibit.

New this month, Over the Edge Moab, a new gallery located at 88 E. Center St., joins the art walk. The gallery will feature the work of photographer Scott Rogers, which captures local adventurers collaborating with the “precarious balance between the dimensions of time and nature.”

The Museum of Moab, 118 E. Center St., will host a collection of photographs by the late Terby Barnes, featuring desert blooms from the flowers of the alpine La Sals to deep desert blooms. An avid photographer, Barnes aimed her camera at the flora of the Southwest.

Most exhibits highlighted during the event will also be available for viewing throughout the month of June during regular hours at each of the art walk venues, organizers said.
