Nick Hall Art Show
March 2, 2024

Nick Hall Art Show

Nicholas Hall is an Indiana-born artist that found his home in Talkeetna, Alaska in 2019. After working many years in the fitness industry in the lower 48, he embraced the spirit of adventure and pursued a life in America’s last great frontier where he now lives with his wife Amanda, and their daughter, Finley. He has been exploring the world of acrylic painting for over 25 years and enjoys the process of creating art in his free time. He has experimented with many styles of painting using various mediums, but has found that his preferred style is using acrylic paint to display strong contrasting color and bold lines. He studied non-representational art at Columbia State College in Columbia, Tennessee under Prof. Fred J Behrens, and has incorporated this influence into the “base-form” style of painting he practices today. This style seeks to take a complex image and reduce it down to a more simplistic image where color and composition take focus.

Moon Hooch
March 7, 2024

Moon Hooch

Moon Hooch began busking in the subway platforms of NYC in 2010, quickly getting noticed by the NYPD, who had to ban them from locations that couldn’t handle the crowds. In a few short years they were opening for the likes of Beats Antique, They Might Be Giants, and Lotus, while selling out their own headline shows at marquee venues around the United States and Europe. Their unconventional sound and techniques, utilizing found objects like traffic cones, landed them appearances on NPR’s Tiny Desk in America, “Later…with Jools Holland” in the UK, “Hamish & Andy’s Gap Year” in Australia, and private audiences with the Premier League’s Chelsea F.C. They are currently touring the world.
