Ann Johnston

Dye, Cloth, Thread: The Sierra Nevada July 3, 2018 - November 26, 2018 Ann Johnston’s art quilts aren’t your typical, every day quilts.  Each piece is like a painting with different tonal qualities, textures, and arrangements.  Her large-scale, hand-dyed pieces are inspired by geological formations, nature, and human influence on the landscape.  Join us for a reception and lecture with the artist on Friday, September 14 from 6 – 8 p.m.

The paintings of Kathryn Klitz Corbett embody a deep love for this sage country, a love which is rooted in childhood.  She became a painter to express her feelings about Nevada.     Corbett’s parents met in the 1930s while living in Contact, Nevada, which is an old prospecting community in northern Elko County.  Her mother Mary DeWitt taught in a two-room schoolhouse while her father Joe Klitz was from a family of prospectors. The couple moved to Sacramento where they married and raised four children.  Family vacations were a lengthy trek across two states, along old Highway 40, and then north from Wells on U.S. Route 93 to their grandparents’ home in Contact.  Camping in Northern Elko County as children infected us with the need to smell sage under a wide blue sky. I would bring along my paints to record the “thereness” of a place.  For a few hours, I would sit on the ground to capture my feeling for a particular area. It seemed to give each small watercolor the power to bring that place back to me in its totality.  –Kathryn Klitz Corbett
