The Capital City Arts Initiative [CCAI] announces its student exhibition, ART from UNR, at the Community Development Building [the Brick], 108 E Proctor Street, Carson City. The Brick is open to the public daily, 8am – noon, 1-4pm. The free exhibition will remain in the building’s lobby exhibition space from July 11 through October 19.

This past semester, thirty-six University of Nevada, Reno [UNR] students collaborated to create two large sculptures inspired by Louise Nevelson, one of America’s most distinguished artists. Each student built a wood box and created their own composition of gathered found-wood pieces; the boxes were then combined into the large sculptures. Nevelson provides the inspiration for students to explore formal elements of sculpture – mass, plane, line, color, and texture, along with compositional elements including positive and negative space, directional quality, and repetition.

The project also gives students the opportunity for hands-on experience in the wood shop and general sculpture studio utilizing both stationary tools (i.e. table saw, panel saw, band saw, miter saw, drill press, etc.) and hand tools (i.e. hammers, hand saws, drills, brad guns, etc.)

 

he students who created the Composition in White include: Shane Andrews, Denae Ball, Holly Carter, Owen Craugh, Celeste Dunn, Barrie Fenton, Kyle Hoffman, Tyler Jessell, Sandra Kramp, Tatum Lochner, Makenna Mahar I, Joseph Oliva, Isabel Olmedo, Rayne Roberts, Amanda Singleton, Tyler Stanley, Julia Stead, Samantha Vanillo, and Dustin Waters.

The students who created the Composition in Black include: Christopher DeFalco, Lindsey Depaola, Yvette Diaz, Rebekah Dominik, Griffin Drew, Laura Gracia, Joseph Klippenstein, Martha Rebecca Lopez, Courtney Martinez, Brianna Oki, Isabel Pittman, Nico Quatrale, Gabriel Rojas, Kevin Ruano, Kaleigh Rubio, Tyler Scranton, and Demetria Smolko.
