Born in the country of Georgia, Jonas Dovydenas spent a part of

the 1980s traveling and photographing rural Nevada.   Nevada: A

Journey is a reflection the vast solitude of the state and the people

who call it home.  The Northeastern Nevada Museum is now

home to over 50 of Dovydenas’s original prints.

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.

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
