Nevada’s First Lady Showcases Nevada Artists and Artifacts
Kathy Sisolak hosts new online program featuring Nevada artists and artifacts
Nevada’s first lady Kathy Sisolak is offering a monthly virtual series called “The First Lady presents…,” a program showcasing Nevada artists and artifacts on the Nevada State Museum, Carson City website.
Throughout 2021, works of contemporary Nevada artists will be discussed, along with an artifact that will be on display at the Carson City museum during its Curator’s Corner program.
Chinese-American painter Gwaylon Leaf will be featured on “The First Lady presents…” web page in February. The Las Vegas artist works with oil and watercolor on both paper and canvas. He creates paintings using a visual language synthesized from Taoist coded language and talisman, according to his online biography. Leaf holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Nevada, Reno, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
“The First Lady presents…” is a collaboration between the Nevada State Museum, Carson City, the Nevada Department of Tourism and Cultural Affairs and independent art consultant Mark Salinas.
