Preservation and Protection V

Sculptor and multimedia artist Nancy Scarry brings "Secreted Away" to the College Gallery at Western Nevada College Carson City, Monday, Feb. 14-Friday, March 25. The exhibit takes a contemplative look at one of life's simplest elements, the cup.

The San Luis Obispo, Calif., artist describes in great detail the relationship one can have with a cup, the inspiration for her pieces. "The cup is an object infused with the elements of daily ritual and intimacy. Every morning one has their cup of coffee, tea or chocolate. The process of selecting the cup, making the drink and cradling the cup as it is brought to your lips is quite intimate. These small events give life comfort, consistency and perhaps a bit of control."

Her piece, "Preservation and Protection V" showcases a cup upon a pedestal, perhaps in honor and respect for the enrichment it has provided in on's life.

The public is invited to meet the artist at a free reception, Wednesday, Feb. 16, 5-6:30 p.m. in the WNC Carson City galleries, Bristlecone Building. Hours: 8 a.m.-9 p.m. weekdays; 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, with holiday closures. Information: 445-3000.
