Paiute/Modoc painter Melissa Melero-Moose has been working on a series of large-scale mixed media paintings inspired by the traditional and contemporary basketry of the Great Basin area. Using organic objects such as willow, pine nuts, cattails, and tule reeds, she plans to reflect the use and importance of these materials to Paiute and Great Basin peoples in her paintings. In addition to her work, Melissa recently founded the art group, Great Basin Native Artists.

Join the School for Advanced Research on August 6 to hear about Melero-Moose's experience as the 2015 Ronald and Susan Dubin Native Artist Fellow. The evening will conclude with a visit to the Dubin Studio to see her work.
