Nevada Art Museum

What a collection, really enjoyed it.

Started with land art – how different. Check these out..

Framing on a board – adding to the art.

Loved the modern art selections..

Rose B. Simpson – The Four A dramatic piece representing the 4 directions, moving and beautiful. This woman has a varied education – besides an MFA she also has education in automotive body repair.

The Museum has purchased the catalog of Judy Chicago, an 82 year old New Mexican woman who works in smoke sculptures using pyrogenics. She narrates a documentary on her life at the exhibit. See it.

One of her pieces

The Museum has quite a history beginning 100 years ago when locals joined as a club doing art work together. Lorenzo Latimer, was the instrumental founder of the group, and later the Latimer School was born. Much of the lovely art work from that early group is on display. Here are a few.

And finally, stop on the roof for the view…….

A must see Museum!
