Mimi Jobe art show is on display at Valley museum

Gardnerville resident Mimi Jobe's lifetime of artistic work, described by Jobe as an "autobiographical display in artwork," is on display at the Carson Valley Museum & Cultural Center. Some of the pieces that have been purchased will be given to the new owners on Wednesday, but the smaller display showing the timeline of her work from age 12 on will remain through Dec. 1.

The remaining original artwork is on sale at the museum, to benefit the Douglas County Historical Society in part, through Wednesday. Raffle tickets are on sale for $2 or $5 for three for a 24- by 36-inch giclee print on canvas, "Sierra Vista," valued at $1,100, with proceeds to benefit the museum. Tickets are available at the museum, Lone Tree Gallery and Joyce's Jewelry, Gifts & Antiques. The drawing will take place on Wednesday.

Jobe's artwork reflects the places she's lived across the U.S. and in Mexico.

The Carson Valley Museum & Cultural Center, 1477 Highway 395, Gardnerville, is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday. For information, call the museum at 782-2555.
