His series Nevada and Near Reno, along with many of the artist’s works for which he is well known, are included in this new exhibition organized by the Nevada Museum of Art.

Ottmar Liebert, a German-born composer and guitarist and his band Luna Negra, first gained popularity performing and recording music albums in a "Nouveau Flamenco" style in 1989. Since then Ottmar has received five Grammy nominations and has become one of the most successful instrumental artists of the past decade, thrilling audiences throughout the world while releasing a catalog of classic recordings. Ottmar’s incredible global success on a musical level often seems like a simple outgrowth of his cultural background and powerful wanderlust in his formative years. Born in Cologne, Germany to Chinese-German father and Hungarian mother, he began playing guitar at 11, and traveled extensively through Europe and Asia intent on fully absorbing each musical tradition he encountered. After pursuing his Rock and Roll dreams first in his native Germany and then in Boston, he settled in Santa Fe, New Mexico and founded Luna Negra.

If you prefer a sudsy brew, several breweries will be on hand pouring tastings or full beers--try a few and then get your favorite brew! A live band will be out to entertain the ears, as the eyes, and taste buds are tantalized with delectable wines and unique arts. And, you can reach out to your inner puppy with the help of a dog psychic.
