Visual Feast Gallery, is the newest gallery in town having just opened in May of 2011. Specializing in contemporary, abstract, modern and the unorthodox, somehow I survived the hot summer months and am especially excited about September finally being here! Some of my enthusiasm comes from being able to share with you the fresh new artists who have joined the feast. Visual Feast Gallery has been blessed with the exceptionally gifted talents of three new and
very diverse artists; Luke Howarth, Diane Trevett and Lawrence W. Adkinson. Howarth serves up some nonrepresentational enamel panels in a full range of colors, inspired by Jackson Pollock and titled after titles of some of his favorite songs. Trevett satisfies with tasty living abstraction oil paintings inspired by her environment; and most recently discovered, Adkinson whos specialty is found object kinetic sculptures, many of which employ musical instruments (for all of you Moab Music Festival art lovers).
Also on the menu: oil paintings and funky jewelry by Yrma van der Steenstraeten, whimsically quirky graffiti by Chris Haven, found object treasure shrines by Karen Mandery, mixed media with a taste of clay sculptures by Jonathon Hagman and textural high relief mixed media by Visual Feasts curator (me) Chrissy Noel Kinslow.
What’s more in September are the wonderful mixed media illustrations of featured artist Meghan M Mulcahy. This tremendously talented artist likes to play with natural forms combined with modern compositions and lots of detail. Concentrating largely on black and white mediums, she likes to find the beauty in the details, finding whimsy in a different angle or an unexpected place. Meghan loves to combine the beauty of biological subjects and the crisp lines of ink or graphite, creating daring and powerful images.
Come meet Meghan during the Moab Art Walk Saturday September 10th starting at 5:00 and dine upon a buffet of edibles, audio, art and for the digestif, a visually stimulating after dark performance.
