"Ships of the Desert" near Pyramid Lake, Nevada


Our Story
 

Nevada Fine Art LLC is a private fine art dealership founded in 2016. We specialize in the sale and purchase of original fine art by historically significant artists of Nevada, California, and the Southwest. Our collection recently expanded to include established contemporary artists who we believe are continuing the legacy and traditions of the historic masters, and who deserve attention from discerning collectors, interior designers/stylists and art institutions. 

We selectively present other exceptional works by notable masters, regardless of genre or origin, that reflect our appreciation and keen eye for quality, workmanship, and historical significance.

In 2006 Russ successfully nominated Caples’ home and studio in Dayton, Nevada, to the State Register of Historic Places. He later co-curated the traveling exhibition “Robert Cole Caples: Rooted in Nevada” as part of the Nevada Touring Initiative’s Traveling Exhibition Program. He authored the exhibition’s education guide and in 2007 penned the article “Remembering Robert Cole Caples” for the winter edition of the Nevada Historical Society Quarterly.
