Alta Vista hosts Will Moses reception Oct. 24
On Oct. 24, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Alta Vista Gallery will
host a special reception to feature the Autumn and Halloween folk art of Will Moses,
great-grandson of Grandma Moses.
Enjoy hot cider and pumpkin bread and other fall refreshments while viewing the funny folk art of an internationally acclaimed artist.
Like Grandma Moses, Will Moses is self-taught, yet his art is collected all over the world, including the White House and the Smithsonian. Alta Vista Gallery owner Maria Santomasso-Hyde said, "We sell more Moses art than any other artist we represent. I think that may be because his folk art takes you back to old days when things were not so rushed, a peaceful place, which is what so many people come to the High Country for. Also, his art makes people laugh, especially his popular print 'Girls Night Out.'
"Moses' art also has so much activity and detail. Customers tell me that after owning a Moses for years, they can still look at it find something they haven't noticed before. But if you don't care for folk art, you can still enjoy our reception, because Alta Vista also represents over 100 other artists, and we offer fine crafts like kaleidoscopes, pottery, tiles, and jewelry, if you need to find Christmas gifts. Another great gift idea is Moses books, such as 'T'was The Night Before Christmas' and 'Silent Night.'"
Alta Vista Gallery is located in a National Register-listed farmhouse only 10 minutes from Boone, at 2839 Broadstone Road in historic Valle Crucis, between Mast Farm Inn and the Mast General Store Annex. A map is available online at
