A signed lithograph by former President Jimmy Carter and artworks inspired by the beauty of the Silver State and California are among the more than two dozen fine art pieces offered in the Art Talks’ silent auction at the Reno News & Review’s fundraiser on Thursday, Sept. 23.

The outdoor event is scheduled from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at 175 Juniper Hill Road in Reno. Guests are invited to stroll through host Jim House’s lovely backyard garden enjoying an autumn evening of art, libations, and hors d’oeuvres.
