Where the Pavement Ends by Erik Holland: featured in our previous gallery

Friends of Nevada Wilderness returns to Artown this year featuring the “Refuge” gallery. Boasting stellar nature photography, as well as paintings, sketches, prints, and found object sculpture all celebrating Nevada’s nine scenic wildlife refuges and public lands. National Wildlife Refuges are areas that are critically important habitats for wildlife and create a sanctuary space in the face of increasing urbanization and loss of habitat. The refuges are important for humans too. In an uncertain world facing unprecedented obstacles, finding peace by connecting with the rhythms of nature is healing for the human spirit. Experience these stunning landscapes with our virtual gallery,  learn about the unique wildlife & ecologies of these special places, as told through the artistic visions of local artists. Proceeds support Nevada artists as well as Friends of Nevada Wilderness and our work protecting and stewarding your public lands.

The gallery is LIVE and will run from July 10th to the 17th.  Art in the gallery is available for purchase on our online store and helps support local artists as well as Friends of Nevada Wilderness’ mission to keep Nevada wild.
