Get to Know the "Other Nevada"

View Nevada Through Lens & Language

Sand Mountain
"Sand Mountain"

A collaborative project between student photographers and writers at Western Nevada College culminates in stunning photographs of Nevada and creative writing inspired by the images. "The Other Nevada: Through Lens and Language" will exhibit in the Atrium Gallery at WNC Carson City, Monday, March 8, through Thursday, April 8.

In 2008, writer, photographer and WNC student Doug Deacy began capturing "another Nevada" that contradicts the stereotype of the Silver State as a wasteland. Deacy recorded images of the high desert and Great Basin that are sometimes overlooked by both Nevadans and visitors.

Collaborating with Professor Marilee Swirczek's creative writing classes, the result is a provocative exhibit featuring visuals by Deacy and other Nevada photographers, with literary works by WNC and area writers.

A free, public reception for the artists will be Wednesday, March 17, 4:30 to 6 p.m. The gallery, located in the Bristlecone Building on the Carson campus, is open weekdays, 9 a.m.- 8 p.m., and Saturdays, 10 a.m.- 4 p.m.
