“I am happy to have had a number of art shows in the Las Vegas area. I presently have art in a permanent collection at the Smithsonian sponsored atomic testing museum and the Valley of Fire State Park. It is a privilege to display my enjoyment of nature and the world through painting”
The Lost City Museum, known as one of Nevada’s premier public museums, has had a long relationship with the presentation of community art. Fine local and regional artists have had an opportunity to display their artwork in the museum gallery since the 1980s. The gallery space created by the museum provides a valued venue for artists to show their work. One of the guidelines given to the artists is that the art displayed in the museum supports the museum’s overall mission and image by displaying Southwest themed subjects.
Artists who complete vendor paperwork through the State of Nevada can sell their works on consignment. The Museum charges 15% on all sales through the Museum Store and an additional 5 % for credit card transactions.
