Donald Corpier Starr: Color the Emotion
October 12 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 8:00am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until November 9, 2018
The Nevada Arts Council will host a free reception and artist talk with Las Vegas artist Donald Corpier Starr on Tuesday, Oct. 9. An exhibit of Starr’s artwork is on display at the Arts Council’s OXS gallery through Nov. 9. The reception starts at 5:30 p.m. with the artist talk scheduled to begin at 6:15 p.m. at the Nevada Arts Council, 716 N. Carson St., Suite A, in Carson City. Titled, “Color the Emotion,” Starr’s exhibit consists of people who have piqued his interest over the years. His loving, character-infused portraits provoke a variety of reactions from the viewer. Starr uses positive/negative space to portray emotions in his portraits. His philosophy for connecting with his audience is a simple one: “If I can create a pleasing image that creates a mood or emotion in the viewer and causes them to wonder ‘Who is this person?’ then I have accomplished my goal,” said Starr, a Kansas native who now makes his home in Henderson.
