The Folklife Program of the Nevada Arts Council has collaborated with the Nevada Historical Society to present a traveling exhibition of the canvases of Basque tree carvings, or arborglyphs, from the collection of Jean and Phillip Earl, who have been documenting this folk art form of tree-trunk art for approximately 40 years. 

Mountain Picassos: Basque Arborglyphs of the Great Basin will be on display at the Western Folklife Center in Elko until March 2, 2018. 

This exhibit is funded in part by Nevada Humanities, Nevada's nonprofit state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
