"Left Behind," a group exhibition guest-curated by Chad Sorg, will hang in the Main Gallery at Western Nevada Community College Bristlecone Building, Monday, April 3, through Thursday, April 27. This exhibition of work by seven artists will showcase artwork "born again," and bring objects to life that were once thought dead.
"The seven artists will view the beginning of the end," said Sorg. "They will use recycled material, including metal, wood, bone, wastepaper, packaging, human detritus, and cardboard, in some way in their artwork."
Walter McNamara crafts the unlikely coupling of deserted bone and wood. Sorg displays nature's patina found on man's discarded tokens. Max Ezra hones the viewer's focus on pieces of human detritus. Elaine Parks reconditions found objects from the19th century mining days. Kris Vagner posits the oddly balanced in a skewed display of common form. Tamara Scronce draws our gaze upward with delicately suspended cocoons. Christine Karkow walls common cardboard of complex construction.
A reception for the artists is scheduled for Thursday, April 13, 5:30-7:30 p.m. Guitarist Yerka Durante will be playing original electronic experimental music at the opening
