Visual Feast Gallery
Visual Feast Gallery HEARTS the month of October! Fun and excitement abound town and we enjoy being a part of every bit of it!

The Museum of Moab hosts a Masquerade Ball that takes place at the M.A.R.C Saturday October 22nd Artist from Visual Feast Gallery, as well as many others are thrilled to donate amazingly crafted masks to be silent auctioned off during this magical event. All proceeds from the silent auction are awarded to the Experiential Education Centers (EEC) program, serving hundreds of students in and around the Moab Valley.

There are bikers galore and in celebration of this, Visual Feast Gallery is throwing it firs2t annual BIKE THEMED SCULPTURE SLAM, October 26-29. Artists of all levels are invited to bring materials and complete a 3-demensional ”bike themed” sculpture from start to finish between the hours of 8am-6pm on Wednesday October 26th with food, music and beverages to follow. Viewers are then encouraged to come down to Visual Feast Gallery and place your vote on which sculpture you think should win as well as purchase a raffle ticket to win an original, masterfully created, found object, bike art by VFG’s member Lawrence Adkinson! Winners will be announced Saturday at 5:30 during the awards ceremony for the 6th annual Moab Ho-Down Mountain Bike Festival, located at the Chile Pepper Bike Shop!

What’s more in October is the Art of Visual Feast Gallery’s proprietor Chrissy Noel Kinslow (that’s me). On the menu will be my specialty, textural high relief mixed media paintings in a variety of sizes, served with your choice of sculpture, drawings, or affordable prints. The question what will you be when you grow up was never difficult for me to answer, I was born to create and motivate others with the gift of inspiration and imagination. I am inclined to expose myself by introspection of where I am in my existence as well as affection for exploration of materials and media. The colors, shapes, patterns, & textures all emerge from my feeling, moods, dreams, & passions. The light bulb that goes off in my head which ignites my hands into action is directly related to my environment both internally and externally. My curiosity and desire for challenges enables me to utilize items and media in an unorthodox manner, at times leading to happy accidents. Come check me out during the Moab Art Walk Saturday October 8th starting at 5:00 and dine upon a buffet of edibles, audio and art!
