There will be a reception with the winning artist, Kathleen Arvila-Scott beginning at 5:30pm where more of Kathleen's work may be seen and purchased.


The artist's reception will be followed by a special book release and signing!

The Virginia City Preservation Alliance will be publishing an anthology of articles on the history of Virginia City, to coincide with the 150th anniversary celebration of the founding the town in 2013.

"Nuggets in Time: An Anthology Celebrating the 150th Anniversary of Virginia City, Montana" includes several previously unpublished articles and photos. The book will be released to the public on 7:00 p.m. on May 24th at the Elling House in Virginia City, following a brief program by the editors.

Nuggets in Time will be a limited edition issue of 1,000 copies, and each copy individually numbered. Following the initial public release on May 24th at the historic Elling House, copies will be available through local merchants or by directly contacting the VCPA. All proceeds from the sale of the commemorative book will be used to further the work of the alliance.

The commemorative anthology will be the second such project of the VCPA. In 2005, the organization published Nuggets of History from Virginia City which was a compilation of articles which appeared in the society’s newsletter (The Nugget) during its first ten years.
