The Lost City Museum presents “The Faces of our Land”


The Lost City Museum presents Jo Tame and Dot Blake in “The Faces of our Land”

 Colorfully painted gourds, pencil sketches and watercolor paintings of ancient petroglyphs by Jo Tame and Dot Blake are at the Lost City Museum in “The Focus of Our Land,” through February.

 Tame’s paintings have a unique and abstract background style designed to mirror natural rock formations in the nearby mountains. Dot Blake specializes in painted gourds and lifelike pencil sketches of Native Americans and the local scenery. The artists are residents of Moapa Valley who say they love the desert and rich history left behind by people of the past.

 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.
