JOSEPH WATSON AT THE LEGISLATIVE EXHIBITION SERIES

The Observation and Conclusion features paintings by Henderson artist Joseph Watson, April 6 - April 24, 2015.

A keen observer, Watson sees excitement, danger, culture and love in daily occurrences. "I use art as a tool to inspire people to become better individuals and guide others to success, based on my goal of making the world a better place." The LXS Gallery is located on the first floor across from the Caucus Deli in the Nevada Legislative Building, 401 South Carson Street, Carson City. Read More
