November at Gallery Moab

Joshua Baird is an exciting guest artist for Gallery Moab. His painting, The Guardians, won 3rd place in the recent Moab Plein air competition.

He has won many other awards including three 1st places at Plein Air Paradise in Midway, Utah and Artist’s Choice at Escalante Canyons Art Festival. Baird has prepared 5 different solo exhibitions of abstract landscapes. His paintings are part of numerous collections including the Salt Lake County Art Collection and the Springville Art Museum.

Although primarily painting landscapes of the four corners and southern Utah in oil he experiments with other mediums and includes a wide variety of subjects in his portfolio.

Each month the gallery features a member of the gallery. In November we have two featured artists, Robin Straub and Phil Wagner. Their oil paintings of familiar landscapes around Moab are popular with local and visiting gallery patrons. Robin’s loose style compliments Phil’s sometimes wild paintings.

Baird’s paintings will be shown in the gallery from November 10th to December 8th. All three of these artists will be featured at a reception at the November Art Walk on Saturday November 12. Join them and other members of the gallery at 97 N. Main between 6 and 9 pm. In November the Gallery Moab will be switching to winter hours of 12 to 4pm Thursday through Saturday and 10 am to 2 pm on Sunday.

Open 12:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Wednesday – Saturday; Sunday 12:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Closed Monday and Tuesday

Retail at Redtail Aviation

What is in a bag? Not meaning the things that are put into one, but its material, fabrication, and in some cases, history. Redtail Air Adventures offers fine bags by Scully Leathers, a 110 year old company that made leather flight jackets and helmets for pilots in both world wars, and provided jackets and gloves for Admiral Byrd’s Antarctic expedition. Commemorating their association with aviation, Scully’s soft and supple leather bags are lined with an airplane print fabric.
Historic ground transport is represented in Redtail’s large collection of Aztec Shiva bags. The vintage canvas in these bags is from fifty year old lorry (truck) covers, hand processed to give each bag a unique feel and character. The work is done by women in rural India; purchases of these bags support their effort to become self-reliant.

Redtail’s Park Hill leather bags are replicas of antique messenger bags and satchels. The bags are made of sturdy, beautifully tanned cowhide leather and attractively trimmed with buckles and straps.

Something Tuesday features totes and passport pouches in a vintage aviation print on light weight canvas.

All these bags and more can be found in Redtail Air Adventures at 23 N. Main. Open daily. 355-0889
