The Lost City Museum presents the artwork of The Moapa Valley Art Guild in “Images of the Southwest,” including watercolor and oil paintings, pastels, drawings, gourds, pottery and jewelry. The exhibit runs through Oct. 31.
“We are so grateful to our partners in this community and happy to help show their work because it tells of our Nevada heritage,” said Jerrie Clarke, museum director.
The Moapa Valley Art Guild was founded 57 years ago by Max Bunnell, now 88 years old and still painting, showing and selling his art. With many talented artists who embrace all genres of the art world, the guild has 50 members who are known throughout the Southwest. The organization also hosts a Pomegranate Arts Festival every year in Logandale to showcase local artistic talents. The 2016 festival is Nov. 4 and 5, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Clark County Fairgrounds, not far from the museum.
