Pastel artist to share experiences at museum event

Soft pastels with Linda V. Campbell will be showcased at tonight’s Third Thursday at the Museum presentation in the Segerblom Theatre inside the Boulder City/Hoover Dam Museum. It will begin at 6 p.m.

Campbell, an artist in residence at Red Rock National Conservation Area, said she likes the “velvety texture” of pastels, which allow her to capture the colors and essence of her subject quickly, especially when working outdoors because light conditions change rapidly.

A native of Montreal, Campbell earned a degree at the Museum of Fine Arts Academy in Montreal before spending more than 10 years working for an art and design studio in Toronto.

After moving to the United States, she began working as an interior designer.

Services for veterans highlighted conference

Reno has recently been grabbing some of what could have been Southern Nevada’s convention gatherings. Award presentations to the state’s newspapers by the Nevada Press Association were held up north this year. (Of course, the association is headquartered up north, but it does alternate between the south annually.)

Reinvention helps businesses adapt to challenges

Looking back to Aug. 9, 2018, I remember the trepidation I felt of the unknown outcome resulting from the traffic diversion off the interior roads of Boulder City and on the freshly built Interstate 11. Would businesses close immediately? Would residents now be able to utilize the retail, dining and services on the (Boulder City) Parkway? Would the novelty of the adventure of a new freeway wear off soon? Would Boulder City have done enough preparation for what lay ahead?
