Join us for a multimedia wildlife lecture and artists reception for our current exhibition Sharon Schafer, The Art of Nature: Images from the Wildlands of Southern Nevada.
Sharon K Schafer is an accomplished fine artist and photographer. Through her photographs, paintings, and field sketches Schafer invites us to explore the stunning natural beauty of southern Nevada’s wildlands.
Southern Nevada is a land of great contradictions and contrasts. It is at once austere, enchanting, and secretive. It is a land of mystery…a land of contrasts and contradictions…a land of great beauty and little rain.
A glimpse of the hidden beauty and grace of nature can change a viewer. By looking at these images I hope the viewer comes away with a different perspective - no longer seeing the Public Lands of southern Nevada as a desert wasteland, but rather as a place of unparalleled natural beauty and diversity that is deserving of our care and concern.
Schafer now resides in Boulder City, Nevada where she owns and operates Skydance Studio. The studio specializes in beautifully artistic yet scientifically accurate images that appeal to the art collector and the environmental educator alike.

Biological, Chemical and Engineering Research to Study the Viability for an Algal Biofuel Economy in Southern Nevada.
Dr. Jian Ma - 7:30 to 8:30pm on Tuesday, April 13
Biofuels derived from algae have the potential move to the nation ever closer to energy independence. Biofuels from microalgae have many merits, such as significantt high oil productivity, CO2 recycling, non-food based feedstock sources, use of other-wise non-productive non-arable land with the use of a wide variety of water sources such as fresh, brackish, saline and waste-water. Join us as we discuss the research behind the technical challenges of this new resource, the scaling up and feasibility of long-term production.
