The Overlook Gallery, located in the heart of Moab's Center Street district, is housed in a structure built in the early Twentieth Century when Moab was still a Wild West outpost in the middle of a vast wilderness traversed by only the most intrepid adventurers. The building has been used for dozens of businesses over the years, mostly eating and drinking establishments. During the Prohibition years it was known as a place where patrons, in need of a medicinal remedy not exactly endorsed by the government authorities, could purchase a locally made elixir that would do the trick. And some of Moab's oldest residents still remember The Wagon Wheel Bar where local ranchers brought their irons to town and burned their brands onto the plank-wood face of the building. The brands still remain; reminders of a time when cattle raising...and rustling were a more prevalent occupation in the red rock canyons and plateaus of Southern Utah.
For seventeen years now this historic building at 83 East Center Street has been the home of The Overlook Gallery, where visitors to Moab could come to view and purchase original artworks that reflect the area's culture and it's amazing landscape. Exhibited works include drawings, paintings, sculpture, pottery and jewelry. The gallery has evolved over the years with different owners and has gained a solid reputation as a Southern Utah hub for the visual arts.
Currently the gallery is also serving as a shared studio space for two professional landscape painters, Tim J Morse and James McKew. When Tim and/or James aren't out in the field painting, visitors to the gallery can view works in progress and may even find one or both of the artists at work on a new piece. Also featured in the gallery are works by prominent western watercolor artist, Don Weller. Don's deftly painted images of cowboys, cowgirls and their animal friends are a delightful compliment to Tim and James' work.
The Gallery is open to the public most days and appointments can be arranged any time. Just call, email us or drop by and check out the latest display.
