3rd Saturday Art Walk - May 18
Please join us Saturday, May 18, from 6:30-8:30pm for a FREE “Night Out at the Museum”, part of the 3rd Saturday Art Walk. Featured speaker April Moore will talk about some misconceptions of native traditions. We will also have an Opening Reception for new art exhibits, "Traditions Learned Through Time” by artist Billy Hawk Enos and “Artwork by Winema Marie Suehead” on display May 6 - June 25, 2013. Enos, a self-taught artist, used mixed media and acrylic paintings to honor the cultural traditions of his Washoe/Niesnan ancestors from Chukam Pakan (Clipper Gap area) and Nevada City, CA. Artist Suehead, from Grass Valley, CA, painted with vividly colored acrylics in her collection.
