Nevada Artists Focus On 'Basin And Range' In New Show


Double Negative

Double Negative landscape art by Michael Heizer is just one of the features of Nevada's Central Basin and Range area.

If you look at an aerial photo of Nevada’s Central Basin and Range area, it consists of narrow mountain ranges going north to south. A 17th Century U.S. geologist compared them to “an army of caterpillars marching toward Mexico.”

Now a new exhibition called “Basin and Range” opens Friday night at the Donna Beam Fine Art Gallery on the campus of the University of Las Vegas, Nevada.

It features artworks inspired by the area and the environmental issues surrounding the section of the state.

All of the artists who contributed are from Nevada.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
