Lost City Museum exhibits works of four local artists

OVERTON, NEVADA – The mixed-media works of four local artists will be featured at the Lost City Museum this month.

The exhibit includes photography, pottery and watercolor art. The featured artists include:

Char and Kent Lang: This couple is well known for their artworks incorporating Southwest designs. Char is originally from Pennsylvania has been an art instructor for many years teaching primarily in watercolor and other media. Kent was born in Las Vegas and is offering hand-built original pottery incorporating a wide range of iconic southwestern motifs.

Charyn McDonnell: A photographer who lived in Oregon most of her life until moving to Mesquite a few years ago, McDonnell’s work has been featured in “Only in Nevada” and “Only in Utah” and two magazines in the Pacific Northwest. Charyn loves the desert and hopes her photography reflects that interest in the landscapes of the southwest.

Vanessa Temple: She moved to Nevada in 2010 and grew to enjoy the beautiful night skies, colorful mountains and wide open spaces of Nevada. A native of Massachusetts, Vanessa took classes under the direction of Char Lang and discovered a new passion, watercolor painting.
