The Pahrump Art Gallery has installed a new exhibit of local artists with featured artist Princy Simonsen. She has lived in Pahrump for eight years and has been exhibiting paintings for about five years and part of those are permanent displays as wall murals at the museum, the library, and the art gallery entrance. There are seven artists exhibiting in this show.

Amateur photographers wishing to learn more about nature photography have an opportunity to participate in the “Nature through the Lens” program. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Nevada Department of Wildlife are joining forces to offer a workshop on nature photography at the Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge.

The free workshop is set for Saturday, March 29, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., at the Point of Rocks boardwalk on the refuge. Participants will learn about photography basics and types of nature photography. Time will be allotted for attendees to practice what they have learned.

Those wanting to participate should bring a personal camera such as a phone, point-and-shoot or DSLR. It’s going to be warm and you’ll need to bring water and wear shoes suitable for walking and/or hiking. Registration ahead of time is necessary. For more information or to register, contact Jennifer Waithman via email to jwaithman@ndow.org.

IN SEASON: Carrots, a kaleidoscope of colors, sizes and shapes

Carrots are a pretty inexpensive vegetable to buy at the grocery store, and for this reason many gardeners do not grow them. I like to grow them because they come in beautiful varieties and can fit easily between other vegetables in the garden. That space would not be used otherwise so I like to make good use of it.
