The Lost City Museum presents the printmaking and drawings of Ann Hoff in a special exhibit throughout September. Hoff is a professor of printmaking and drawing at the College of Southern Nevada. Her work is in several university, museum and corporate collections locally and nationally.
Hoff is an expert in capturing the sweeping forms of weathered stone, stunning vistas and isolated, pristine locales. She works through the use of complex line and sculptural form.
“I wish the viewer to share the dizzying, overwhelming sense of visual immensity, the clarity of air, the tactile sharpness of stone, the visual song of fluidity in the lines of the landscape,” Hoff said.
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. Moapa Valley Blvd., Overton. Admission is $5, children 17 and younger and members enter free. Take Interstate 15 north to exit 93.
