The Capital City Arts Initiative announces its exhibition, ART from WNC, at the Community
Development Building [the Brick], 108 E Proctor Street, Carson City. Twenty-one student artists from Western Nevada College, Carson City, have work in the exhibit. CCAI will host an artists’ reception on Tuesday, February 7, 6-7pm. The free exhibition is available to the public from February 1 – March 30, 2017; the building is open Monday – Friday, 8am – noon, 1-4pm.
ART from WNC includes a wide variety of art including graphic design, drawing, photography, and book arts pieces that show the diversity of the students’ creativity.
The exhibition presents two graphic design projects by Professor Jayna Conkey’s Graphic Communications students including Sarah Benson, Melessa Camilon, Martina Doan, Rachel Guthrie, Zephen Guthrie, Stephany Hash, Zach Leonard, Ace McClellan, Jesse Mireless, Jina Padilla, Heath Proctor, Jennifer Smith, Lee Stokes, and Stephen Wadsworth.
Stephen Reid’s students, Noah Shek, Oakley Workman, and Jennifer Dunn did photographic typology projects, with photos of similar objects combined into grids. Dunn and Shek also made book art sculptures. The show includes four self-portrait pencil drawings by Reid’s students Azltand Carrillo, Dowain Swain, Kody Valdez, and Amanda Yau. Kurt Meyer’s color photographs feature a truck partially burned in the recent Little Valley fire.
Sharon Rosse, CCAI Executive Director, said “There is a sophisticated quality and professional level in the WNC students’ art. CCAI is delighted to present this exhibition.”
This show is the fourth show in CCAI’s 2016 – 2017 series of student exhibitions in the Brick. CCAI will present a group exhibition of high school students’ work April – June.
