Susan Perez-Lost City Museum Feature Artist June
June 22 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:30am, repeating until June 30, 2018
Moapa Valley artist Susan Perez draws inspiration from nature and expresses it in a variety of mediums.
“I love nature in all its forms, especially flowers for their sculptural quality,” said Perez, whose artwork will be exhibited at the Lost City Museum throughout the month of June.
A member of the Moapa Valley Art Guild, Perez was raised with an appreciation for the great outdoors and the beauty of nature. She began studying art and showing an aptitude for it at an early age and said she was inspired by Joe Gnagy – America’s first television art teacher – in the 1950s.
Now retired, she enjoys spending time with her fellow members of the Moapa Valley Arts Guild, discussing, sharing and applying all she has learned from her art projects. She prefers working in oils, but excels in all art mediums.
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 for adults and free for museum members and children 17 and younger. To reach the museum from Las Vegas, take Interstate 15 north to exit 93. Access is also available from Lake Mead National Recreation Area or the Valley of Fire State Park. For more information, call the museum at (702) 397-2193.
