An opportunity for beginning, intermediate and advanced photographers to have their work displayed and featured in our various web publications including the Facebook banner photo for a month. Click here for details: Call for photography
The workshops are designed and intended for participants of all levels of art competency and are free to the public. Each workshop includes an introductory talk by naturalists and biologists from the U.S. Forest Service, the Great Basin Institute, or the Southern Nevada Conservancy and offers participants an opportunity to learn about some of the species of plants and animals in the mountains and how the mountains were formed. At the end of the workshop the participants left with a better understanding of the mountain as well as art training.
Sculpture Workshop with Javier Sanchez
Location: Mary Jane Falls Trail Head/Old Ski Tow Area 11:00pm to 5:00pm
Local artist Javier Sanchez will give us the opportunity to help put together a
work of art inspired by the Land Art movement of the 1960’s. Participants will
be asked to build sculptures with found objects and revisit the sites over time
to modify them as an ongoing project for the year.

The Wildlife Divide exhibits will showcase the work produced during workshops at Mt Charleston, and dates and locations will be announced in coming weeks. The experience of living in urban areas often isolates and divides us from the amazing natural habitats surrounding our city. The projects are designed for participants to think of these separate environments as one and to consider the vitality and contrast of the two.
