Gig Depio and Eugene Rolfe: Korea ’76
January 14 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 8:00am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, repeating until February 28, 2019
The Capital City Arts Initiative (CCAI) presents its exhibition Korea ’76 with work by artists Eugene Rolfe and Gig Depio in the Community Center’s Sierra Room. The exhibition is available to the public from October 22, 2018 – February 28, 2019. Rolfe took his photographs in the mid-1970s while serving in the U.S. Air Force as a means of recording images of rural life in South Korea. After discovering that Rolfe had stored these vintage photographs in his garage attic, Depio worked to restore the negatives and print them. Depio then created a series of new paintings that point to these small moments of history that are not widely known. The images reflect both artists’ interest in the interweaving of Asian and American cultures and America’s strong impact on the social, political, and economic life of other countries. The Sierra room is open to the public during Carson City official meetings, for access and meeting schedules call 775-283-7421 or the Carson City Meetings and Events Calendar.
