Description

The Lost City Museum presents “Desert Snowfall” a display of cut paper drawings by Bobbie Ann Howell in May. The exhibit will be available to view from May 1 to May 31st 2021.

The artist describes her creative process in this way. The cut paper drawings combine patterns that are created and laid out. The compositions is drawn on the paper and then the shapes are cut away revealing the negative spaces to create composition and shadow. This cutting away of the paper gives the viewer time to reflect on the subject of the drawing. The viewer has to shift their focus between the positive and negative forms, from light and shadows. The drawings have many forms derived from an array of elements found within the natural world, the Nevada Landscape. Every pattern has its own form and composition.

The Lost City Museum actively engages people in understanding and celebrating Nevada’s natural and cultural heritage. One of seven museums managed by the Nevada Division of Museums and History, an agency of the Nevada Department of Tourism and Cultural Affairs, it is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily at 721 S.
