Here's the progress of the second painting I'm doing for the Nevada Rock Art Foundation, click here for more painting details and progress. Following is the show announcement - please stop by and say "Hi" if you can!
Artists Co-Op of Reno is hosting the 5th Annual Rock Art Show to benefit the Nevada Rock Art Foundation. A percentage of all sales will help NRAF with their work in the conservation of Nevada's fragile rock art heritage through education, documentation, monitoring and protection.
Rock carvings called Petroglyphs and paintings called Pictographs were created by native ancestors. These drawings on stone provid an eloquent window to the past as they are important symbols to ancient cultures and need to be preserved and protected for future generations.
The artwork in the show will be paintings, photography, pottery, gourds, clothing, purses, silk scarves, weavings, metal sculpture, rock art soap, jewelry, paper sculpture, carved rock, etched glass, hand blown glass, walking sticks, baskets, flutes, collages, etc. 100 plus artists are supporting this benefit by creating images and interpretations of the ancient art of petroglyphs and pictographs through their art.
