'Panorama' Features Nevada Artists

Enjoy the range of artwork from Nevada artists in the Main Gallery of Western Nevada College’s Carson City campus.

Through Friday, Feb. 12, WNC presents “Panorama: Selections from the Nevada Arts Council’s Artist Fellowship Program,” a traveling exhibit displaying the work of the agency’s Artist Fellowship Award winners in visual arts.

The collection showcases 12 Nevada artists who have demonstrated mastery of process and medium in producing a significant body of work. Their work ranges from street photography, to stitched textiles, to cast bronze sculptures.

“We're pleased to be hosting the Nevada Arts Council's Artist Fellowship exhibition,” said WNC Gallery Director Gil Martin. “It's a fine representation of the quality work being done by Nevada artists."

The pieces in “Panorama” are essentially focused on object making, as well as deliberate demonstrations of aesthetic investigation that challenges the boundaries of familiar and discrete art forms. The contributing artists, half of whom are photographers, continue to push the margins of technique, materiality and content.

Participating artists include Catherine Borg, formerly of Las Vegas, photography; Dean Burton of Reno, photography; Shan Michael Evans of Las Vegas, digital media and animation; Stephen Hendee, formerly of Las Vegas, textiles; Zoltan Janvary of Reno, printmaking and drawing; Robert Morrison of Reno, sculpture; Candace Nicol of Reno, printmaking; Nolan Preece of Reno, chemigram printing; Heather Protz of Las Vegas, photography; Tamara Scronce of Reno, mixed media and sculpture; Christine Siemens, formerly of Las Vegas, photography; and Mary Warner, formerly of Las Vegas, painting.

“Panorama” is curated by Richard Hooker and coordinated by the Nevada Arts Council. It is part of the Nevada Touring Initiative Traveling Exhibition Program, with funding provided in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Nevada State Legislature.

The Main Gallery is located in the Bristlecone Building at 2201 W. College Parkway in Carson City. The gallery is open during school hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
