A show in Gold Hill titled “Splendors from the Brush” will include 50 paintings by the late Silver Springs artist Darlene Grace Novy-Zuelke.

Darlene Grace Novy-Zuelke, who passed away in 2011, spent a lifetime as a working artist after completing the Gifted Artist program at the University of Illinois. For many years she worked around the United States, Canada and Mexico and her paintings are in galleries and private collections as far as away as Germany, Japan, Australia and South America.

Most of the paintings in the show are landscapes, with a few floral subjects and abstracts.

“Most of Darlene’s work is watercolor. This collection ranges from exquisite miniatures of florals and landscapes, to larger landscapes and a few abstracts. You get a feel for the many changing landscapes in Nevada through her paintings,” said Robin Cobbey, comanager for the event, along with the Charlie B Gallery of Carson City.

There will be a few antique and vintage items for sale as well.

The show opens at Maynard Station in Gold Hill with refreshments and a no host bar from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 7.

The sale continues from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8, and 2 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 9.

Maynard Station is on State Route 342, about two miles south of Virginia City.

The estate of Darlene Grace Novy-Zuelke has authorized the sale of 50 of her paintings.
