Summer Art Exhibit Features Space Photos

A fascinating and colorful exhibition of space photography is on display at the Western Nevada College Main Art Gallery through the end of August. The collection contains several dozen photographs of Earth’s moon, planets in our Solar System and their moons, and many colorful nebulae.

The two-foot long images are the creations of John Dykes, a Western Nevada Astronomical Society Member and Jack C. Davis Observatory volunteer. They are printed on thin metal plates that enhance the brilliant colors. Copies of the photographs may also be ordered, with the proceeds to help support the observatory.

The gallery is located in the Bristlecone Building on the Carson City campus.
Exhibition hours: Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-9 p.m., and Saturday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
