Gallery Moab
By Thea Nordling

Gallery Moab’s artists wish you a Happy New Year! It’s been an exciting first year, and we’ve certainly had fun being Main Street’s gathering place for artists and art lovers. We are staying open throughout the winter, and invite you to stop by to view our latest works, visit with the artists, or stimulate your own creativity by taking a class. Two of our accomplished artists are offering workshops starting in January, a perfect way to spend the cold, dark mid-winter evenings.

Tim Morse is well known for his glowing desert and mountain landscapes. Starting on January 7 he will be teaching a water media class exploring a variety of translucent watercolor techniques using traditional watercolors or water-thinned acrylics. Participants can paint along with his demonstrations or may work with their own ideas or photo references. Tim will incorporate discussion of composition, drawing, values, color theory, and mixing colors into the workshop. All levels of painting experience and skill are welcome. Classes will be held on Wednesday evenings at Gallery Moab from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. Cost is $25 per session or $100 for 5 sessions. Bring whatever watercolor painting materials you may already have to the first session, and a group order will be made for other necessary items. Call Tim at 435/260-0738 if you have questions.

Former BYU and Utah Valley University art professor Larry Christensen will teach “Drawing Lifelike Portraits & People,” his special forte. His classes will be held on January 8, 11, 22, 29 and February 5. Up to twelve spaces are available. Cost is $25 per class or $100 for 5 classes. Drop-ins are welcome. For the first class bring a clipboard, a sketchbook (whatever size you prefer), and pencils. Various papers and other drawing materials will be discussed and can be ordered during the class, so you can choose the medium you wish to pursue. For further details, call Larry at 435/686-2253.

Call or stop by at the gallery for information or to register for classes. Or just come in and enjoy the colorful ambience and wide variety of mediums and styles of art on display. All original art is for sale, as well as prints and cards.
Nurture your inner artist! Make new friends! Learn something new! Have fun! What better way to start the new year? We hope to see you this month.
Winter hours are Thursday through Sunday, 12:00 noon to 6:00 p.m.
