Spurs & Bota Bags: A Retrospective 40 Years of Ranching in the Nevada High Desert January 8, 2018 - April 8, 2018

On a Basque ranch in Nevada, one might be a sheepherder one day and a cowboy the next. 

The first Basque herders who scrambled to gain a foothold in the new world in the decades

after 1900 took their wages in sheep; eventually they were able to build the herds that

allowed them to put down roots.  Basque ranchers in the post-World War II economy

expanded their sheep outfits to include cattle, and while some outfits sold their sheep, others have kept their herds to continue the Basque-American family

tradition.

The Dufurrena family outfit is an example of one of those ranches.  Linda Dufurrena’s collection of photographs is a look back on nearly 40 years photographing

friends and neighbors, sheepherders and buckaroos, and their four-legged companions on the mountains and meadows of northwest Nevada.

“LADY” JILL MUELLER

November 2017 - February 3, 2018

Hailing from the Reno area, Lady Jill has been a practicing artist for 40 years.  Her works

are well-known in Northeastern Nevada.  Her style evokes a love for the wild and pristine

landscapes of the state.  The artist’s hope is that the viewer becomes part of her pictures

and will be moved to protect and preserve the land for future generations.
