About the work
Zoray Andrus was among the first professional artists in Nevada to concentrate on contemporary abstract painting. Her imagery has been described as “adventuresome-stylistically varied,” and the painting “Paiute Camp in Snow” is a rare example of just such a work.
A native of Alameda, California, Zoray Andrus (1908 - 1990) attended California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, and studied with a number of influential artists, including Hans Hoffman at the University of California–Berkeley.
In 1935 Andrus was on the Comstock and thereafter opened the Welcome Grant gallery where she exhibited works by regional artists. She lived and painted in Virginia City and Carson City for some twenty years.
