Description

The Lost City Museum presents the art of Joan Day and Janet Trobough in October.

Joan Day creates many different styles of art including jewelry, woodwork, paintings and murals. Joan Day’s murals can be seen in Moapa Valley and Mesquite.  Mesquite boasts a large mural on the Golden West Casino and Joan has painted a number of murals at private homes.  In addition, she has received commissions from many states and Hawaii.

Joan Rainey Day has always had a love of the natural sciences and art. Joan majored in zoology and minored in art in college. After college, Joan began a career in biological illustration then into wildlife art. Joan later opened an art gallery in Cambria CA.

Living in a vast desert environment with an abundance of wildlife gave Joan many subjects to paint.  Janet Trobough works in many different areas of art primarily in water colors but also alabaster, sculpture, soap stone and decorative gourds. Although Janet loves painting in Native American themes, she also enjoys landscapes, florals and contemporary s

ubjects.

Janet moved to Nevada

in 1998 after decades working in the beauty industry in the pacific -northwest. Moving to Nevada and pursuing art was a giant leap of faith and pursuit of a dream that at times seemed impossible. She had painted in oils for many years and as she began her second career in painting, she began painting on a daily basis. The late Max Bunnell, professor of art at Dixie State College in Southern Utah, provided Janet with her formal introduction to watercolor.

The Lost City Museum actively engages
