LOST CITY MUSEUM FEATURES WESTERN WORKS OF GOLDEN MILLWARD 

OVERTON, Nevada—The Lost City Museum will feature the oil painting creations of the wide-open West by artist Golden Millward January 1 through January 31.  Millward is known for capturing the splendor of western land and people.

“The majesty of a lone cowboy and his trusty steed, and breathtaking sunsets a dozen shades of orange, are the iconic scenes one associates with the West.  The wide open vistas of yesteryear and the people who lived there capture the imagination and stir the mind and heart,” Millward said.   “The play of light and deep expressive hues are a delightful thing to see viewed in the atmosphere of the museum.”

Golden was born in 1939 in Afton, Wyoming. The fifth of 12 children, he began painting on pieces of butcher paper salvaged from the family business.  Growing up in beautiful Idaho and Wyoming gave him the setting for some of his later paintings.  After raising a family of nine, Golden moved to Arizona and continued his work which has been widely praised and featured in exhibitions throughout the West.
