We took a nice leisurely stroll around the Nevada Museum of Art over the weekend. With new work on display, the Museum was buzzing with activity.
Marking the Infinite: Contemporary Women Artists from Aboriginal Australia
This is a thought-provoking show from nine Aboriginal women artists and their art inspired by nature and the life they live.
Hans Meyer-Kassel: Artist of Nevada
Hans Meyer-Kassel was a creative painter who lived quite a life and left the story of his life with his paintings.
I recommend spending some time fully absorbing his work and thinking about his life. Hans lived from 1872-1952 and journeyed from Europe to Nevada painting what he saw and what he felt.
The Body of a House: Paintings by Robert Beckmann
Fascinating and haunting, this series of eight, large-scale paintings by Robert Beckmann was inspired by the footage of a nuclear test and its destructive power on a single family home.
Check these exhibits at the museum as well.
