The Generator: “The Existence,” an Exhibit by Turburam Sandagdorj, aka STuro.
Working with cutout shapes, paper, and metal, STuro’s art feels robust with a sense of movement. The steel pieces are solid and industrial but retain the creative flow in the images. As a bonus, you will see what is happening at The Generator.

Wilber D May: Latimer Art Club presents “Home Means Nevada.”
There is a lot of talent in the Latimer Art Club, and this exhibition features some of the best The Latimer Club has to offer. The paintings on exhibit have various subjects, and I am sure you will find something that will knock your socks off. You will want to attend this Artown event.
The Latimer Club has several shows and exhibitions throughout the year in different locations. They do not have a permanent gallery location, so be sure to see their work when you can.

Artists Co-op Presents “Loving Nevada.”
The Artists Co-op has an invitational show, “Loving Nevada,” featuring some artists I have not seen. The show has a very Western feel that is quite delightful.
The Co-op also has a guest artist, Trina Craig’s paintings feature water and desert.
The artist of the month for July is Al Ferrand; his paintings have robust colors and calming subjects.
Open seven days a week – 11 am – 4 pm

Makers Paradise: Sierra Watercolor Society Presents “Community Perspectives.”
How can artists bring awareness to society’s challenges?
Sierra Watercolor Society asked their artists that question for the “Community Perspectives” exhibition. Plan on spending some time examining the paintings; there are many messages in the art. Michelle and I enjoyed how the artist’s images sparked conversations about our community.
While we were there, we took a walk around the mall. There was an Artown event featuring local authors. There we met a local artist, Nancy Mues. Her portraits are powerfully expressive, with a skillful technique that is quite striking.
