Last week, the Nevada Museum of Art cut the proverbial ribbon for their new exhibition The Latimer School: Lorenzo Latimer and the Latimer Art Club. As a celebration of the museum’s ninetieth anniversary, the exhibition brings together works by Lorenzo Latimer—a noted early 20th-century watercolorist of Western landscapes—as well as his mentees including artists such as Marguerite Erwin and Nettie McDonald. In 1921, Latimer established the Latimer Art Club, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. To see Latimer and his students’ stunning landscapes, make sure to check here to plan your trip.
