The receptions will be held on November 19th in Gerlach, Nevada and on December 3rd in Winnemucca, Nevada. The exhibition in Winnemucca will last until December 10th.

Artists Megan Berner and Deborah Finley were granted residencies during the spring of 2016 at the NCA. Megan lives and works in Reno and her medium is photography, videography and mixed media. Deborah lives and works in Elko as a ceramics sculptor and art teacher.

Each artist received a stipend from the BLM and FBR to complete their work and spent two weeks in the NCA to gain inspiration for their work. "We are excited to showcase the artwork from this year's program. The artists' unique perspectives highlight the beauty of the area," says Michael Myers, Executive Director of FBR.

The Artist-in-Residence program promotes awareness through art of the exceptional places protected within the BLM’s National Conservation Lands. The program provides an opportunity for learning and dialogue regarding the value of preserving public lands. "The National Conservation Lands are special places and this year's artists have done a tremendous job interpreting this landscape,” says Barb Keleher, BLM Nevada Recreation Lead. “We are all interested in sharing their work and passion with you."

The receptions will be held at the following locations and times:

<![CDATA[ SOUTHERN NEVADA: BLM Seeks Comment on Las Vegas Valley Environmental Assessment ]]> http://www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/info/newsroom/2016/november/southern_nevada__.html http://www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/info/newsroom/2016/november/southern_nevada__.html Thu, 3 Nov 2016 12:13:17 -0600 Las Vegas - The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Las Vegas Field Office is inviting review and comment on the Las Vegas In-Valley Area Multi-Action Analysis Environmental Assessment (EA.)  Comments will be accepted until December 16, 2016.

The Las Vegas Field Office manages federal public land parcels interspersed among private land in the Las Vegas metropolitan area.  The BLM processes multiple land actions within these areas each year, including disposal of public lands out of federal ownership and land-use authorizations such as rights-of-way (ROW), Recreation and Public Purpose Act (R&PP) leases, mineral material disposal actions, various permits and licenses within the Las Vegas In-Valley area. 
Because many of the actions occurring within the geographic boundaries of the Las Vegas In-Valley are similar in scope and intensity, it is redundant and inefficient to create individual National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documents for each individual action. Therefore, the Las Vegas In-Valley Area Multi-Action Analysis EA will provide for an expedited review process which will allow for decisions to be made on most rights-of-way, Recreation and Public Purpose Act leases, mineral material disposal actions, and various permits and licenses within the Las Vegas In-Valley area in the most efficient manner.  
This EA analyzes the impacts of development, construction, operations, maintenance, renewals, amendments, decommissioning, restoration, and/or termination of actions authorized through rights-of-way grants, mineral material disposal actions, or other permits or leases including land disposals within the Las Vegas In-Valley area. 

Written comments may be submitted on the EA website at DOI-BLM-NV-S010-2016-0054-EA, email at  ngaddis@blm.gov or mail to BLM Southern Nevada District Office, In-Valley Environmental Assessment, 4701 N. Torrey Pines Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89130. ]]> <![CDATA[ ELY: BLM Seeks Public Comment on Robinson Mine Expansion Preliminary Environmental Assessment ]]> http://www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/info/newsroom/2016/november/ely__blm_seeks_public.html http://www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/info/newsroom/2016/november/ely__blm_seeks_public.html Tue, 1 Nov 2016 16:42:52 -0600 Ely – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Ely District, Bristlecone Field Office is asking the public to review and provide comment on a proposal to expand the Robinson Mine located on private and public lands about seven miles west of Ely, Nev.  The 30-day public comment period concludes Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2016. ]]> <![CDATA[ CARSON CITY: BLM Sierra Front-Northwestern Resource Advisory Council Grazing subcommittee to meet on ]]> http://www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/info/newsroom/2016/october/carson_city__blm_sierra.html http://www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/info/newsroom/2016/october/carson_city__blm_sierra.html Tue, 1 Nov 2016 13:12:26 -0600 Carson City, Nev.--The Bureau of Land Management, Sierra Front-Northwestern Great Basin Resource Advisory Council, Grazing sub-committee will meet on Thursday, November 10.
