WNC Carson City Gallery Exhibit
- A collaborative art project that reaches out to artists around the world will show at Western Nevada College January 25-February 25. "6 Sides 2 Every Story," a printmaking exhibit organized by Reno artist Candace Nicol, will show in the Atrium Gallery to open the spring semester.
A public reception is Wednesday, Jan. 27, 4:30-5:30 p.m. in the Bristlecone Building galleries.
More than 500 participants were asked to illustrate their own perspectives by carving one side of a wooden cube. Each cube represents a current story found in a national/international article, internet posting, or magazine. The culminating project includes artists from the United States, Canada, England and South Africa. Within two years, 95 cubes were carved.
"By sharing a cube consisting of the same story, some artists connected with each other in their communities, while others shared one story with strangers in other places," Nicol said. "Participants responded to one another's marks, their visual images and the initial story."
Candace Nicol teaches printmaking at Truckee Meadows Community College, and is a co-founder of the Northern Nevada Printmakers' Conspiracy. Her work is frequently exhibited nationally and internationally and is part of many permanent collections.
This project is funded in part by an Artist Fellowship grant from the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency; and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency; and by an artist grant from Sierra Arts.
The WNC Carson art galleries, located in the Bristlecone Building on the Carson City campus are open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. All exhibitions and related activities are free and open to the public.
