Author Mary Lee Fulkerson will present some of the thirty-one women artists scattered over 200,000 miles whose challenges became opportunities beyond their wildest dreams. Opening their studios and sharing their lives, each artist reveals how this vast Great Basin brings challenge, inspiration, and vision as they boldly move forward, sometimes circling outside the conventional routes and creating art as independent and authentic as the land itself. They are indeed true originals, rooted in a land of unique geography, a stew of cultures, and stories like no other.

Mary Lee Fulkerson is a former professional basket artist who once told stories around her baskets. When her hands rebelled, she began telling stories in a different way—by writing them down. A fourth generation Nevadan and graduate of the University of Nevada, Reno, she is author of Weavers of Tradition and Beauty: Basketmakers of the Great Basin, published by the University of Nevada Press, as well as A Basket of Blessings, a perpetual calendar. Her newest book, Women Artists of the Great Basin, published by the University of Nevada Press, recently received the Willa first place award in creative non-fiction by Women Writing the West.

Admission is $8 for adults: free for members and ages 17 and under.

Seating is limited.
